shapewear can be pretty
Let's face it, none of us like wearing ugly knickers. It just doesn't give us a good feeling, knowing that lurking under our clothes is something that looks monstrous. Big old granny pants used to be the only option when it came to shapewear. Not any more! Enter REALLY PRETTY shapewear.

Pretty Shapewear Limitations

Okay, I'm going to be honest with you, pretty shapewear isn't the strongest of stuff. If you are wanting strong shapewear then you just have to choose things made of strong compression fabric. And this will never look really pretty - although some of it isn't all that bad!

Control It!

Pretty shapewear is on the lighter side of slimming control. So we are talking light, medium or firm control. It WON'T transform your figure from a size 16 to a size 10 (actually nothing will, sorry), but it will firm up wobbly bits, smooth lumpy bits out and make your clothes hang beautifully.

My Favourite Pretty Shapewear

I'm a little bit in love with the Spanx Spotlight On Lace Bodysuit. It is simply beautiful, in a very elegant, lacey kind of a way. It really helps to slim and firm things up, is really adaptable and is ever so comfy to wear.

The bodysuit is FIRM in slimming control (so the strongest pretty stuff you can get) and it gives excellent control especially on your tummy and mid section.

The lace is utterly gorgeous (think high end lacey underwear) and moves with you for a really flexible, comfortable fit.

The straps are convertible so you can wear them 5 ways - V-Back, Criss-Cross, T-Back, Racerback or traditional straight shoulder style.

The bust section is non-wired and flexible so it will fit bra cup sizes A - H!

The bodysuit comes in white, black and vintage rose (a dusky pink colour). It costs £64.00 and comes with FREE UK delivery.

If you are not looking for a full bodysuit, Spanx do 2 GORGEOUS knickers, one normal waist (£34.00) and one high waisted (£56.00) in the same range. Again they are FIRM in slimming control, and totally pretty

Lovely Little Things

If you are looking for pretty knickers with a nice little slimming punch that won't break the bank, have a look at the Spanx Undie-tectable range. Oh my goodness they are gorgeous knickers. Pretty, lightweight, easy to wear and they really look nothing at all like shapewear. They are MEDIUM in slimming control and really target your tummy and love handles. There are 5 styles to choose from, all of them low waisted like normal underwear. And they all cost £24 - an amazing price for Spanx!

Take Good Care Of Your Pretty Things

If your pretty shapewear has lace this is a double washing whammy. Lace and lycra need taking good care of in order for them to stay lovely. Either hand wash them and line dry (NEVER tumble dry lycra) or put them in a washing bag on a delicates wash. The better care you take of them, the longer they will last.
