Best Shapewear to Wear Under Your Dress Style Guide

Best Shapewear to Wear Under Your Dress Style Guide

We won’t waste time before jumping straight into the style guide, as I know you’ve just found that dress for an event that’s fast approaching, and you need to order your invisible shapewear to make sure you look and feel drop-dead gorgeous in it.  

The right shapewear won’t show at all under even the tightest of dresses, will smooth your curves, and give you a serious confidence boost. Of course, each dress needs a different type of shapewear to stay invisible, so here are the best pieces for each style of dress.  

Simply pick the one you need and you’ll be ready to go!  

Style of Dress: Bodycon Mini Dress 

Shapewear You Need: Invisible Body Shaper Thong Bodysuit (NS012) 

The invisible Body Shaper Thong Bodysuit is designed to give you the perfect hourglass shape under any piece of clothing, but is absolutely ideal for those sexy bodycon mini dresses. This shaper shrinks your waistline and has absolutely no seams, so your dress will flow faultlessly from it onto your own skin – absolutely no detectable lines! 

Style of Dress: Midi Dress 

Shapewear You Need: Ultra Smooth Invisible Butt Lifter (NS084) 

Midi dresses are elegant and sexy and have the major bonus of covering your lower body, so if that’s a perceived problem area for you, you can not only show off your shape but wear shapewear that offers more complete control. The Ultra Smooth Invisible Butt Lifter offers moderate compression and helps you feel supported in every way, without ever feeling constricted. It will pull you in, smooth your curves, and lift your butt. What’s not to love?  


Style of Dress: Backless Dress

Shapewear you need:The “Ideal Open Back Dress” Body Shaper (NS068) 

If you’re anything like me, backless dresses are something I would always sigh and walk on from, simply because there was no way I was going to wear one without some support. This Body Shaper changes everything. Now, those low backed dresses aren’t off the table, you can wear them, feel supported and not worry about back bulges. Yay! 

Style of Dress: Bodycon Mini Dress 

Shapewear You Need: Low Back Invisible Bodysuit (NS198) 

Strapless dresses are notoriously difficult to wear with shapewear, but not anymore! This Low Back Invisible Bodysuit secures around the lower part of your bra strap (helping keep your strapless bra in place) and won’t slip. Ever. If you love the sexy look of a bare shoulder, this piece has to be in your closet.  



Style of Dress: Bodycon Mini Dress 


Shapewear You Need: Hourglass Figure High Compression Shapewear (NS015) 

Flowing dresses aren’t as “scary” as a bodycon dress, but they tend to hang from the areas you don’t want to accentuate. That all changes with this piece of shapewear, which smooths everything from your underarm to the bottom of your hips so there’s nothing your flowy dress can do but fall beautifully. 

Style of Dress: Evening Gown

Shapewear You Need: Waist & Thigh High Compression Body Shaper (NS021) 

Unless you live a life much more glamorous than mine, the change to wear a full-length evening gown doesn’t exactly come up often. You’re going to feel outside your comfort zone, but that definitely doesn’t mean it can’t be in a positive way. This is your chance to go all-out, and this body shaper will be there to support you every step of the way and make you look and feel like a superstar.  

There you have it –shapewear for any dress and any occasion! If you’ve not worn shapewear before I know it can be nerve-wracking to put your trust in a new piece. Believe me, it is sooo worth it, but if you want to dive deeper into the subject before hitting the buy button, no problem.
