Tossen:  I just wanted to say I love you dress.  It’s super pretty and different from what I see all the time on here.  I think the combination of spanx and a corset will help smooth it out and define your waist.

Tossen:  There’s only one way to know! I think if you’re wanting to smooth things out, spanx will do the trick, but if you’re wanting to “re-shape” your torso a little (give it a bit more hourglass), then corset is the way to go. You’ll probably just have to try a few things and see what works best. But I have to say, your dress is so beautiful!

Tossen:  Yes, properly fitting spanx will help and I LOVE your dress. It does look great but Spanx will make it flow better.

I think the belt should be about 1 inch higher. That might help?

I wore a long line bra and some spanx shorts mainly to prevent chaffing. The bra was the best choice ever!! I don’t think the shorts did anything for me. But my dress was also aline! And I had a fit and flare petticoat. Both helped emensely to flatter me. ๐Ÿ˜€

Tossen:  Ditch the spanx and check out Rago shapewear. It rocks!

I found a review on this site from another bee and decided to check it out. I wanted to define my waist and get that hourglass look. I bought a waist cincher from this brand and have since bought several undergarments. I can’t rave about them enough. I got all my girlfriends hooked on it too. These things stay in place like a dream and really take inches off your waist. I sound like an advertisement but I swear I just love this brand.

I can’t remember the bees name who did the original review but I think the title was something along the lines of forget spanx I’m wearing Rago. If you search it I bet it comes up. She was a plus size bee and she posted pictures of her results. I’m not plus size but I have some serious curves and Rago put them all in the right place without rolling or moving around on me.

Tossen:  I got 21 and I also bought a 6201 which is more of a full coverage thing. I wore the 6201 under a figure hugging black dress and I looked killer! LOL

Corset will do more to create that shape than spanx. If you do decide to go the corset route wear it around the house to get used to it. They can be quite confining depending on how tight you go. Also the ones I had when I danced burlesque you couldn’t sit comfortably in. I don’t find shapewear good for anything but smoothing things out.

Dress looks great on you! You don’t really need anything. We’re harder on ourselves than anyone else is.
