Waist trainers can be a great way to smooth out any lumps or bumps and give your figure a more streamlined look. But if you’re not careful, it can also be uncomfortable and even visible under your dress.
So, what is the best way to wear a waist trainer under a dress?
Choose the right shapewear
First, it’s important to choose the right type of shapewear for your needs. There are different types of shapewear for different areas of the body, so make sure you pick one that targets the area you want to shape. For example, if you want to cinch in your waist, you might choose a waist trainer or a high-waisted shaper. If you want to smooth out your thighs, you might choose a pair of shaping tights or leggings.
Once you have the right shapewear, it’s time to get dressed. Here are a few tips for wearing waist trainers under a dress:
Shapewear fitting properly
Make sure your shapewear fits properly. If it’s too small, it will be uncomfortable and visible under your dress. If it’s too big, it won’t provide the shaping and support you need. So, it’s important to try on your shapewear and make sure it fits snugly but not too tightly.
Choose a dress with a fitted silhouette. If you’re wearing a loose, flowy dress, it’s more likely that your shapewear will be visible. On the other hand, if you choose a dress with a more fitted silhouette, it will help to smooth out any lumps or bumps and make your shapewear less noticeable.
Wearing the right undergarments
Wear the right undergarments. If you’re wearing a thin or sheer dress, you might want to consider wearing a slip or other lining underneath to provide an extra layer of coverage. This can help to prevent your shapewear from showing through.
Fabric of your dress
Be mindful of the fabric of your dress. Some fabrics, like silk or satin, can be more prone to showing the lines of your shapewear. If you’re wearing a dress made of these materials, you might want to choose a shapewear with a smoother, seamless finish to minimize the appearance of lines.
Breathe, breathe, breathe
Don’t forget to breathe! It’s important to be comfortable when you’re wearing shapewear, so make sure you can take deep breaths and move around easily. If you’re feeling constricted or uncomfortable, it’s time to adjust your shapewear or consider a different option.
If you want to wear a waist trainer under a dress, it is important that you choose the right size shapewear and make sure that it fits properly. Also pay attention to the silhouette of your dress and the material the dress is made of. If you follow these tips, you’ll be able to rock your waist trainer and feel confident and comfortable in your favorite dress, all day long!
