I love shapewear and use it both for everyday and special occasions. I won’t delude myself as it leads me to a sight smaller size. The shapewear holds together on my stomach one and two, and makes me more firmly in the flesh. It makes my dresses glide better on the body, and falls a little less muffin top beyond waistband on my pants and skirts. The shapewear become the kind that tightens my belly up without squeezing barmen.
I typically wear panty with high waist for dresses and especially to those that sit close to your body. These panties are also easier to get up and down when you don’t have a pair of pants on the ankles when the skirt must be rolled into place.
