Trick No. 13: Shapewear

Say goodbye to your grannie’s girdles. These days shapewear is flexible, lightweight, and provides great body sucking power. It’s also the number one thing all our experts raved about. “Most of my clients wear shapewear, no matter what their shape or size. It gives women confidence that everything is held in and smoothed out,” explained Fashion stylist Keylee Sanders. Khan even puts shapewear on size 0 models during photo shoots. “It smoothes out the natural wrinkles everyone has, and is especially important if you’re wearing light material, like silk, satin, and thin cotton” he explained.

So what’s the number one piece you should own? According to Rygorsky, “Every woman should invest in one great panty with a tummy sucking panel that she can wear under a slim-flitting dress for a night out.” And this wasn’t the only shapewear piece Rygorsky loves. “I’m a huge fan of Spanx’s Tight-End Tights reversible collection. They have tights that reverse from black to brown, or black to grey, or black to navy. Plus, they have great tummy sucking properties.” One product with two benefits. Sign us up!
