Magic Knickers and Shapewear by Body Type

Shapewear has seen a huge growth in sales over the last five years so here are some tips for you to find the correct style for your body shape.
Everyone wants the ultimate hourglass figure but there are not many of us that are lucky enough to have it without a bit of illusions dressing. Even those that do have an hourglass shape are often unhappy with certain lumps and bumps on their body. Control pants and shapewear are the way to go to suck you in where you need it and to coax your body into a smooth hourglass foundation for your clothes.
Different body shapes need different styles of shapewear as they have problem areas in different places. Read below to find out which is the correct style for you:
The Rectangle
This body shape has shoulders and hips that are roughly the same width with little waist definition. Rectangles come in all different sizes but their main characteristic is that they are quite straight up and down. The main objective is to create a waist so try this waist cincher from Miraclesuit.

The Apple
Apples carry the majority of their weight around their tummy and often have slimmer arms and legs. The objective for the Apple is to minimise the tummy area whilst highlighting assets such as a cleavage or slim arms and legs. With shapewear, you need to look for styles that support your bust and cover the whole of your middle area to avoid any bulges at the top or bottom of the undergarment.
Silhouette Slimming Underslip
The Pear
Pears carry the majority of their weight on their hips, bottom and thighs and are often at least a dress size larger on their bottom half than their top. The main objective for a Pear is to minimise their lower half whilst bringing attention up to their slimmer top half. In terms of shapewear, styles that slim the hips, thighs and bottom are best. Look out for pieces that resemble cycling shorts, with a two-inch 'release panel' at the bottom, and a softer control knitted into the fabric - so you don't get a bulge where the shorts finish.

The Hourglass
An hourglass figure already has the weight distributed in the right places with a defined waist but there may still be lumps and bumps that need to be smoothed out. Choose styles that cinch in at the waist and give support at your bust. The Miraclesuit waist cincher above would also be a good choice to emphasise your waist even more.

It is good to know about colour analysis books which are available. Such books are beneficial for customers. They can decide about the colours which they like most. They can read material available in book and consult with others to get good response.
