Need shapewear advice for the party season? Head on down to John Lewis on Oxford Street between 2-15 December where shapewear brand Spanx is opening a pop up shop offering shapewear consultations.
The shop will stock a full range of Spanx shapewear which offers solutions for a whole variety of outfit issues, and you can also book a one-on-one session with an expert lingerie and shapewear fitter for personalised advice on the best pieces for you, including how to use shapewear to make the most out of an outfit.
The retailer has also provided some top tips for women shopping for shapewear this season including:
Wear the right size. ‘Often women think that sizing down drastically will give them extra slimming compression, but it often sacrifices fit and comfort.’
One style does not suit all occasions. ‘Think of shapewear like shoes – you need different styles for different outfits.’
And, finally, think about how different pieces will work with what you wear on top. ‘Do not wear a mid-thigh shaper with trousers. Go with a style that does not stop on the thigh and create a line, like the Super Footless Shaper. For skirts and dresses, choose a mid-thigh silhouette.’
