I’m a little heavier than you–probably all in the hips–but same height and waist.  All I can say is good luck.  Spanx does nothing for me, because their small is roughly the size and shape my waist already is – their smallest sizes go down to a 24.5 or a 25, so they won’t help you.  If you’re open to wearing tights, L’eggs Sheer Energy control top in the A works well for me – B does nothing and B is roughly the proportions you’d get from Spanx.

Alas, not much shapewear in the XS, and the ones that say they’re an XS still often have the same size range as an S.

If you find something that actually works well, let me know. 🙂  Vedette has shapers in the right size range (I’ve never tried them, but they seem well reviewed), but not seamless.

Sounds like you are looking for a waist cincher corset.

With being so small you are probably going to need somethihg more structured such as a corset or waist trainer, so definitely not seamless.  Most seamless options are more for smoothing.

If I were you, I’d buy a few on Amazon prime and send back the ones that don’t work.  There are so many different brands…one of them is bound to help.  Plus the reviews on there frequently have pictures of women who have tried them already…assuming the item is popular.

The hooks automatically make it not seamless, you could try adding a seamless one over it to hid the hooks but 2 pieces of shapewear probably won’t be comfortable.

If the seam lines are your biggest problem with corsets/cinchers you’ve tried, is your dress of a style that would let you wear a normal slip to smooth out the lines?

look into getting a faja – columbian girdle. they come in all different silhouettes and styles. i personally prefer the seamless kind that are either thong or butt-out so i’m trimmed everywhere except the t&a haha.

ebay or amazon has plenty, you can also google. some popular brands are vedette and moldeate.

Two ideas:

1. Buy a simple shaper and have it altered to be smaller.  Because of the nature of the fabric I wouldn’t expect it to last long, but maybe for one night?

2. Research where asian women purchase shapewear.  I remember a friend having a very hard time finding clothes and undergarmets while living in Japan because everything was so small… maybe you can find an international source.

Good luck!

Try the Rago Extra Firm Thigh Shaper. I have a ~23″ waist, and the small works for me. It doesn’t really take inches off, but it works well for shaping.

Hi there! Agree with above poster re the Asian market, I bought some shapewear when I was in shanghai and I have a 24 waist. Sorry I don’t have the brand as I have worn it so often that the brand has faded hehe. There’s def stuff out there xo 

 

also, can relate about wanting curves. I’m a rectangle too hehe
