Princess Beatrice has been spotted giving us a glimpse of her Spanx style shaper at a memorial service for the Queen Mother last week. The Royal, who has slimmed down by a couple of dress sizes in the past few years now looks as though she is a svelte size 10 – which just goes to show that control tights and shapewear are ideal for giving you an extra confidence boost, no matter what your size.
If you’re naturally slim and just looking for smoothing for your silhouette under tighter clothing, control tights are perfect – try something like the Aristoc Bodytoners range which will give your bum, tummy and thigh subtle shaping. The Pretty Polly Secret Slimmer range has some great fashion control tights, too, for those who want shaping but don’t want to compromise on style.
If you’re looking for something a little more heavy duty to give a gorgeous shape to those hourglass curves, take a look at the new Miraclesuit collection. Featuring extra firm targeted control provided by their cut and sew technique, their sh
apers will pull you in where you need it most while highlighting your best assets!
Or for something that will slim you both instantly and long term, check out the ShaToBu shapewear. Made using resistance band technology, this shapewear will also help you to burn up to 12% more calories as you go about your day to day life!
Of course for the classic shapewear design you can’t go wrong with Spanx. The range they offer is incredible – a huge variety of shapes for any outfit and in different levels of control, too. With all the choice available, shapewear and control tights can be confusing, so if you’re not sure which style to go for take a look at our shapewear advice pages. You can be sure of one thing, though – you won’t be alone when you get a little helping hand. Tons of celebrities, from Kristen Stewart to Sarah Jessica Parker, have confessed to (or been snapped) wearing shapewear. And now Beatrice has given it the royal seal of approval, there’ll be no stopping us.
