We, plus size ladies, need shapewear to smooth out extra lumps more than anyone else. I am a mother of two and after tow pregnancies, I do really love have that extra tightness into my tummy, otherwise I feel very loose under a dress. Finding plus size body shapers for women should be easy, right?
Well, the problem is many times we don’t know which one to pick. The market for shapewear has exploded in recent decade, so now you have bodysuits, camisoles, panties, waist trainers, corsets, butt lifters, shapewear thighs, strapless, backless, braless, wire or without wire….you pretty much get the idea. Choosing a proper body shaping undergarment for plus size women can be a headache.
First of all, you need to decide the level of tightness that you want in a body shaper. Most of them are coming marked medium or strong construction. Generally, the higher the nylon content, the tighter they are.
Don’t be tempted to choose a size or two smaller than you actually are. The material that these shaping garments are made is already very tight. Choosing a size smaller means you will not be able to put it, especially if its a slip body shaper, or simply be too tight to actually move and feel comfortable in it. If you actually want extra firmness under a special dress, I would put double body shaper. Some are so smooth and seamless, that it will not show at all.
Spanx Plus Size Body Shaper
When it comes to the best plus size shapewear for women, only one brand comes to mind, Spanx. Many are asking where can you buy Spanx shapewear and which one to is the best for a plus size woman. Big store departments do carry some models, but for a true variety of sizes and models, online is your best bet. From their website, Spanx.com to the biggest e-tailer, Amazon. I personally prefer the later for no hassle returns.
Plus Size Full Body Shaper
I love the full body shaper for plus size women. I would go with Dr Rey Shapewear or Bali Shapewear for a medium control wear. If you really want something strong, the full body fajas columbianas are a good choice. I would wear them for a special occasion dress,such as a prom or evening dress, not only after a c-section or post surgery shaping garment. Be warned tat they run very tight. The Spanx High Wait Mid Tight Shorts are great for plus size ladies.
Bali Plus Size Body Shaper
I like the 8380 Bali Body Shaper and though the pictures shows some very skinny ladies, it does comes in plus size numbers as well. It’s one of the best selling Bali shapewear and one of the most available in shops as well, think Macy’s.
Plus Size Girdles For Women
Rago has some beautiful girdles and panties for plus size ladies. Spanx is another popular brand that carries plus size sizes as well.
