Before you go all-out fasyon with your OOTDs, it’s important to first put on the right underwear that can give you the support you need and the shape you want. Aside from getting bras that have the right size and band thickness (the latter is important as bands help keep everything in place), you may also want to invest in several shapewear that can tuck your puson in, especially if doing so will help you feel more confident and put-together. It’s more than just vanity—the additional support can help relieve feelings of bloat and encourage you to consciously correct your posture.
Here are a few you may want to try:
Seamless Waist Control Bikini
In your 30s, you’ll begin to realize that those low-rise panties you used to wear when you were younger don’t do anything for your puson, and the lola panties you once laughed at are actually the best ways to go. The more coverage, the better!
If you don’t want something that goes too high, this piece will keep your puson happy without impeding your movements.
Women Body Shaper Non-Lined Half Shorts
This body shaper goes up to your ribs just beneath your breasts, and can immediately tuck your belly in while doubling as a pair of shorts for your above-the-knee skirts.
Body Illusions Control Skirt
Need to bring out that old long gown for an upcoming formal event? You may want to get one of these for added support. Just make sure to secure the top edge so it won’t roll down your waist!
