Soon the temperatures will be rising and spring fashion will be right around the corner. You may know how to look your best during those colder months, but what about when the styles change? Here are some easy ways to incorporate shapewear into your spring wardrobe.
Note the styles
It’s no secret that fashion changes each season. For springtime, there are plenty of seasonal styles to look forward to like pencil skirts, floral dresses and crisp, white shirts – just to name a few. You may be excited to start shopping for your new spring wardrobe, but it’s important to take your undergarments into consideration when buying new clothes.
Some women believe that seamless shapewear is only meant for tight dresses or dressy occasions. However, the fact of the matter is that lots of women wear shapewear on an everyday basis, with casual clothes. Shapewear is meant to slim and highlight your figure so that you look your best every time you get dressed. It doesn’t matter if you’re going to the grocery store or a gala – shapewear can be your best friend.
So when it comes to shopping for spring clothes, you’re going to want to take your intimate apparel into consideration. Do you adore that pink and red floral dress but feel like you need a little more support? Shapewear can do the trick! Be sure to take try these garments on with your new spring styles so that you can always look your best.
Color-coordinate your shapewear
The last thing you want is to have your amazing outfit planned and then realize that you don’t have the right color shapewear to pair with it. A delicate, white shirt looks great but not with a black corset. The colors will show through in the light!
When it comes to buying either new shapewear or new articles of clothing, you want to take color into consideration. Ask yourself, “Do I have undergarments that won’t show through this?” Luckily, shapewear comes in various shades such as black, natural, white, brown, blue and gray. Start your collection now so that you always have the perfect option to complement a new spring getup.
Don’t be afraid
Some women hold back from wearing a fashionable item because they don’t think they can pull it off. But with shapewear, all things are possible! Have you ever wanted to rock a pencil skirt but lacked the confidence? Have no fear, these undergarments can help you with any of your trouble spots. Need some full-body slimming? A control slip could do the trick. Or, do you want to add some more curves to your look? A fannie lift brief could be perfect for you.
There are lots of different kinds of shapewear, so you’re sure to find something that will make you feel like you can take on the world.
Dress for the temperature
As spring comes, the air might be getting a little warmer. If you’ve only worn shapewear during the winter, you might want to revamp your collection for springtime. For example, a full corset may get a little too warm for the weather, and your long-sleeve shapewear won’t be necessary when the sun is out and bright.
When it comes to undergarments during those nicer months of the year, you want to make sure you don’t overheat. Buy separate pieces so that you’re not stuck wearing a full body suit. Opt for lace because it’s light and breathable under any clothing that you sport. If you’re prone to overheating, it’s best to buy shapewear that’s made of cotton or lace no matter what season it is.
Update your collection
Because intimates are typically very stretchy, sometimes women have a hard time determining when to update their shapewear drawers. In addition, undergarments do not take well to the washing and drying machine. Most are meant to be dry cleaned or hand washed. Inevitably, some end up laundered and, as a result, the materials to break down. The rubber, silicone and spandex become less taut and the article of clothing will not fit right. If you’ve had a piece of shapewear for more than a couple of years, it’s time to shop for some new pieces.
