The holidays are right around the corner—and with them comes the classic holiday party. Whether it’s a Christmas party thrown by your company or a New Year’s Eve party thrown by your friends and family, you will likely need to make an appearance for at least one event this holiday season. While these parties are plenty of fun, they can also be a little stressful if you’re not feeling confident about your appearance—or if you simply want to master a look that is outside of your comfort zone. A lot of holiday parties are semiformal, or in some cases outwardly formal. You might be wearing clothes that you normally wouldn’t—fancy dresses, shorter skirts, and much more could be on the menu.
Never fear! Popilush is here to help you master your holiday party look. With the right kind of shapewear, you can not only master your holiday party looks, but take them to the next level. You might even be able to revamp a holiday party look that previously didn’t work for you. With that being said, let’s launch into how you can dazzle this holiday season with the help of a little shapewear.
1. Own That Bra Game
Here’s the thing: no matter how great the rest of your outfit is, it can almost always be taken to the next level with a great bra. No matter what your bust size, Popilush has bras that can lift and shape your chest, creating cleavage and drawing attention to your assets tastefully. The problem is that a traditional bra is often visible underneath in a tighter holiday outfit due to the wiring and heavy definition. A seamless bra can give you comfort and eliminate lines, while at the same time lifting your breasts and giving you the definition you want. That’s why we recommend considering a shapewear bra over your typical push-up bras. Additionally, a low-back bra ensures that you’ll be able to show off your back no matter what you’re wearing—give everyone a surprise when you take off your coat!
2. Choose Cute, Supportive Underwear
You may also want to consider a pair of panties that offers support rather than skimpiness. High-waisted underwear can help control your abdomen, while the same time lifting around your hips. But these aren’t your standard “granny panties”. You have two general options. One would be the high-waisted thong panties, which give you the advantages of a thong—a bit less coverage, which may be better for shorter skirts, as well as the sexy high cut look you’ll love—while at the same time offering tummy control. You’ll define your waist without sacrificing that edge a thong gives you.
On the other hand, if you’re not so fond of a thong, fuller coverage panties are available. These core control panties focus more on slimming and compression, but are still high cut enough to prevent noticeable lines. If you find thongs uncomfortable, you may also like the feeling of these fuller coverage panties as well.
3. Try Shapewear Dresses
If you’re attending a somewhat less formal holiday party but still want the benefit of a slimming dress, you may want to consider a shapewear dress. Think about it: you could feel comfortable and streamlined, without having to worry about pairing the dresses with anything more than a coat, jewelry, and cute heels. There are a couple of benefits that come with these dresses. For one thing, the shapewear is built in—all you need do is thrown on the dress. For another, they’re attractive yet simple enough to make your own. You don’t need to worry about mixing and matching patterns, and you certainly don’t need to worry about lines—some even wear these dresses without bras. It’s an all in one solution for any holiday party, especially if you choose a black or red option.
4. Pair Bodysuits with Skirts
Bodysuits come in many different varieties, and you don’t always have to wear the all-encompassing versions with thigh coverage. Some prefer to wear bodysuits as shapewear, and this can certainly work if you’re heading to a holiday party. Think about wearing a longer pencil skirt, or perhaps a miniskirt with tights—rather than pairing them with a conventional sweater, you could throw on a bodysuit. A bodysuit can accentuate your waist and lift your breasts and butt, creating an hourglass look that’s seamless when coupled with a skirt. The other benefit of choosing a bodysuit? You can wear one that’s short-sleeved with a jacket, or a longer-sleeved bodysuit. There are plenty of options available, no matter what kind of look you’re going for.
5. Dare to Plunge
Of course, you can always wear shapewear with an outfit that dares to show a bit more skin. How can you get that look while at the same time slimming your figure? By trying a plunging bodysuit! This type of bodysuit can lift your breasts and butt, while at the same time accentuating your waist. However, the plunging look will ensure that your cleavage is on full display, without the coverage a traditional bodysuit would offer.
As you can see, there are many options on the table when you’re planning for a holiday party. Don’t let yourself hit a party unprepared—make sure that you have a full arsenal at the ready. Popilush is ready to set you up for success!
