A-listers walking the red carpet in fabulous couture gowns may seem extremely glamorous, but, what you may not realize is, many of those celebrities actually need some extra help looking that fantastic in their dresses. From a much-loved pair of Spanx to a double-sided Hollywood Fashion Tape, OROGOLD reviews exactly what it is that the celebrities wear under their sexy outfits.
Spanx are one of the most common shapewear products, and are worn by so many different celebrities to help them squeeze into tight outfits. Curvy reality star Kim Kardashian admits to having to wear two pairs of the control pants in order to fit into some of her skin tight dresses, while Katherine Heigl wore spanx underneath her wedding dress. Oprah Winfrey has even named spanx as one of ‘Oprah’s Favorite Things’, and has even stated that rather than wearing underwear, she wears spanx every day. From bodysuits to shorts to full-length bottoms, spanx come in many different forms and are the go-to garment for many celebrities. For those of you who are looking to invest more into your shapewear, take a look at the garments on offer by dMondaine, as these are a more luxurious, couture alternative to spanx that are favored by celebrities such as Halle Berry, Sofia Vergara and Kelly Osbourne.
Hollywood Fashion Tape
Hollywood Fashion Tape is a clear, double-sided tape that can be applied to fabric, as well as your body, helping to hold your whole look together and to keep your dress from falling away from your bust. Worn by many celebs who have chosen a low-cut dress, the tape works best for petite women who have smaller busts.
The Shibue is a strapless panty that doesn’t have any lines, as it is simply a piece of fabric that twists underneath your private parts, and is held together by a soft silicone gel at the front and at the back, which is washable and reusable. The Shibue, which is great value for money, has gained a huge celebrity following from the likes of Kate Upton, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and the cast of Fifty Shades of Grey. It comes in a range of colors and is the ideal solution for those of you who want to wear a sheer or thigh-bearing dress without the risk of going completely commando. For those of you who aren’t comfortable enough to wear the Shibue, ORO GOLD suggests opting for a seamless, nude panty instead.
A well-tailored classic white shirt is always a sexy option, and is a go-to look for many celebrities, such as Jennifer Aniston. However, the problems occur when the shirt is buttoned and begins to pucker, turning a chic, effortless look into a sloppy outfit. A minimizer bra can help to solve this, as it disperses the breast tissue from the middle of the body, preventing fabrics and buttons from puckering.
As fabulous and fashion-forward most of the outfits we see on the red carpet may seem, many of the celebrities that wear them need some extra help to keep their outfits looking so flawless. From classic shapewear to innovative underwear solutions, keep these options in mind the next time you are wearing a celebrity-worthy gown.
