Shapewear is designed to give the right compression to your bust, waist, hips and thighs; it can greatly enhance your look. Although most women use formal clothing as their underwear, neatly concealed under their outerwear, it does not always have to be so. You can definitely go for the shapewear as your main garment and look fabulous while doing it.
Remember, shapewear won’t give you a different body shape; it only softens your natural curves, giving you a nice clean figure. Let’s take a look at the different shapewear styling options you can try.
1) Shaping thighs
These thigh shapers can make your thighs look toned. You can opt for a high waist thigh shaper to take care of the thighs as well as the stomach and waist. Although over the knee boots are mostly worn under pants or body-hugging outfits, you can also wear them as outerwear.
Over the knee boots with cropped tops paired with high heels and an oversized blazer can look fabulous. You can also pair over the knee boots with square jackets or t-shirts, finishing the look with a cool pair of sneakers.
Thigh high boots can also be worn with slit midi dresses or sarongs; accessorize the bottom with a belt around the waist over a slightly loose top or a spaghetti top, paired with a pair of heels. Pull on a blazer if you feel like it.
2) Bikini Shaper Slip

Going out in bikini briefs might not be your thing, but you can pair these shapers with just about anything from shorts and pants to skirts and dresses. Associate a high waist bikini shaper with a cropped top or wear it with a button-down shirt; you can throw a statement belt over the shirt. It will also go well with a shirt dress paired with your favorite flats.
Bikini shapers can also be worn under a sheer minidress and a bra / tube top, with an open jacket or cardigan over them.
3) Boy Shorts Shaper Brief
The boy’s short shaper will help keep the upper thigh in shape and can hide the flaps. Boy’s shorts can be paired with bodycon dresses, jeggings, shorts or skirts and you can opt for high or low waist briefs.
A boy’s brief shaper provides full coverage and can also be worn as shorts when going out. You can use boy’s shorts paired with sheer skirts and t-shirts or use them as workout shorts in gyms; throw in a tank top to make your cycling outfit.
4) Tummy Tucker panties
As the name suggests, tummy tucks are designed to control the flaps around the tummy. Also known as belly shapers, they are ideally worn under t-shirts, tops and sweaters or camisoles. If you are wearing high waisted pants / skirts with tops, one option would be to go for high waisted shaping panties which will take care of both the tummy and the bottom contours.
High waist tummy tuckers can also be worn as outerwear. For example, you can pair it with tights, a bra / T-shirt, thigh high boots and a jacket for a hot and chic look.
5) Full suit
While belly support clothes control the belly area, a fitted dress would also need control around the hips and thighs. In this case, you would want to go for form-fitting clothing that is specially designed to be worn with fitted dresses / gowns to achieve an overall smooth outline. And that’s where the full body shapewear comes in: it accentuates your natural curves.
Body shapewear is used more and more as an outerwear, and it looks fabulous when done right. So, now you can confidently consider stepping out in a full body shaper with no outerwear to cover it. Wear it as a top with jeans / pants or pair it with a skirt or button down denim shorts, almost anything goes with this one. You can throw a jacket over the bodysuit. You can also wear it with leather pants and leather jackets, Kardashian style!
6)Shaper Hipster Panties
Shaper Hipster Panties
Hipsters are similar to boys’ shorts. Hipsters, like boy’s shorts, have scalloped leg holes and tuck a little below the waist at the hips. The hipster shaper panties ensure a rounder shape around your butt and as such help to accentuate the figure when you wear tight outfits.
You can step out in hipster tailored briefs paired with a kurta to achieve that “no kurta pants” look. Or go for a beach outfit with a tunic and flats.
These were a few shapewear style options to go out. Don’t be afraid to experiment!
It is also important that you choose and style fit clothes according to your areas of concentration – waist, stomach or thighs. For example, if you are worried about your tummy, there are two ways to go about it. Is your top belly bulging and you don’t like it? Then you might want to go for high waisted underwear or just invest in a tube style. If your lower abdomen is the problem area then again the high waist will help. You can also consult underwear for the lower abdomen.
When it comes to smoothing out the waist / hips, shorts / briefs or shapewear can work wonders.
