Trend Alert: Shapewear as outerwear?

Yes, you read that right ladies! It seems that our favourite celebs have taken a rather…different approach to their shapewear and have done away with all the speculation of who’s wearing what. Rather than leaving us guessing as to who is secretly relying on their Spanx to keep them slim & trim, two pop starlets have decided to display their affection for the shapewear in public, showing us that they’re loud and proud of their shaping saviours.

Jessie J

Proving that you don’t need trousers to look fabulous, Jessie J took to the Isle of MTV stage in nothing more than her Spanx and a scarf print blouse. Waist cinching and curve creating, her high waisted black underwear quickly became the talk of the town (sort of), as it seemed the Price Tag singer had transformed Spanx into the perfect on stage accessory. Given Jessie’s hosiery history and daring fashion sense, the voluntarily reveal of Spanx seems relatively predictable, but when it comes down to working the trend ourselves, we can’t help thinking that we might just leave the trend to Jessie and her endlessly long limbs!

For a figure like Jessie’s (that will look just as great underneath a little more clothing), we’ve searched high and low to bring you the best shaping solutions. Craving a waspish 50’s waist? Then let us point you in the direction of the Undie-Tectable High Waisted Panty from Spanx. With a medium strength control, these stretch to just below the bust line, flattening everything along the way. Eliminating those dreaded muffin tops and revealing an enviable hourglass shape, these will slip secretly underneath any and everything that your wardrobe has to offer. For a chic looking brief that has a touch of vintage glamour, treat your underwear drawer to the Amazing Light Adjustable Brief from Naomi & Nicole. A doppelganger for Jessie’s stage shapers, the flattering high waist comes courtesy of an adjustable waistband. Allowing you to position it wherever works best for your figure, these go best underneath foxy pencil skirts or elegant high waisted trousers.

And from one shapewear flasher to another, it appears that Jessie J isn’t the only singer celebrating her love for Spanx. Former Disney star Selena Gomez has recently turned her attention to music, putting on a show for fans in Boston. Along with showing off some impressive dance moves, it seems the Springbreakers actress had no qualms in revealing her nude shaping briefs too. Admittedly her high-slit dress didn’t help in conserving her modesty, but we’re still pleased to learn that even young Hollywood starlets need a little helping hand when it comes to looking that glamorous! If like Selena, you’re after underwear that can go incognito underneath all outfits, we recommend the Slim Cognito Seamless Control Panty from Spanx. Ideal for everyday wear, the briefs give all others in your drawer a run for their money, as they offer a super strong control and seamless shaping magic.

Won over by the trend? No, we didn’t think so! Whilst we won’t rush to expose our underwear drawer anytime soon, we can’t help but adore those who prove that shapewear has the potential to become the ultimate stage accessory…
