Whether it’s for personal pleasure, a sexy night in, or something more practical, our range of basques, bodies and slips can help you make the most of both your body and outfit. Useful for a whole host of reasons, these styles of shapewear will leave you feeling glam and confident for the entire day or night.
Bodies and Bodysuits:
Bodysuits are similar to a leotard or one-piece swimsuit and come available in a range of styles. Whether you need a sultry addition to your lingerie collection or just a comfortable, full body piece for lounging around, a bodysuit will help shape and contour your curves, both tucking in the bits that need some support, and enhancing the curves you want to show off.
Similar to a leotard or one-piece swimsuit, there are lingerie-styled bodysuits perfect for a fun night in with your partner, but also more subtle and modest designs, which are great for replacing a traditional bra and knickers combination. For a sexy look, choose a black or sheer bodysuit with a thong back, and for something more pretty and feminine, consider a non-wired, non-padded bodysuit made from soft cotton. For those with slighter frames, a bodysuit with added panels can give you a more shapely, curvy aesthetic. If you’re already curvy and need more in the way of support than shape, bodysuits can come with non-padded cups and underwires. These can be a fantastic underwear choice for a tight dress or top, securing your curves and helping you to feel fully supported underneath your clothing.
For a fierce yet feminine look, basque lingerie may give you the added oomph you’ve been looking for. There’s a range of designs and styles. However, they’re predominantly used as lingerie that’s meant for the bedroom. Made from sumptuous, sensual materials, they often feature a plunging neckline and padded lace cups, great for maximising your cleavage. Here are some of the most popular options:
- Corset Lingerie: Feel your most glamorous with a basque, suspender, corset bustier combination. With options for wiring and padding, you can really control your shape, achieving a sultry 1950’s pin-up aesthetic with a tiny waist.
- Multiway Basques: Similar to corset lingerie, a multiway basque has the added benefits of removable straps, which is great for if you want to wear something a bit more risqué underneath a strapless, classy evening gown to pull in your waist and accentuate your bust and hips.
- Corselette: Fancy a bit of vintage glamour to add to your collection? A corselette is the ultimate in retro style with a shape that hugs the torso and extends down to the tops of your thighs. Corselettes give a sexy 1950’s aesthetic in a design made to make the most of your shape. What’s more, with the options for added body-shaping panels, breathable materials, and sophisticated embroidery, a corselette will streamline your figure and keep you both comfortable and cool.
Slips come in a range of sizes but generally cover the torso and part of the legs. A full-slip combines coverage for both the torso and the waist down, helping to make the most out of your whole outfit.
For those who only want coverage from the waist down, a half-slip is ideal for wearing beneath a skirt or dress. They range in size from mini to maxi, giving you options for smoothing out your appearance from the hips right down to past the knee.
Whatever size under dress slip you choose, the extra layer between your body and outfit will help prevent any bunching or sticking. If you have clothes which frequently need readjusting, a ladies’ slip can help to prevent this, leaving you embarrassment-free and confident all day and night. For clothes that don’t seem to fit too well, a slip can give your shape an enhanced and well put-together contour. The extra layer accounts for any irregularities or underwear lining that normally show through your outfit, ensuring you look and feel your best self, whatever the occasion.
There are also plenty of other options that come as part of the basque, bodies and slips category, so be sure to browse through and see if a bustier, waist nipper or camisole is more up your street.
