How To: Shapewear for Your NYE Night Out

Jacqueline Wells

It’s that time of the year when sequins are practically a wardrobe staple and cocktail parties are crowding your calendar. Whether you’re ringing in the New Year at a best friend’s apartment, or celebrating the holiday with a sophisticated soirée, welcome 2016 in style. And while you may have just the right thing for the occasion, what about your underthings?

Backless dresses, plunging necklines and body-hugging ensembles demand unique undergarment solutions. We’ve got all the options you need to keep you looking and feeling your best (until that resolution yields results, that is).

The Cocktail Dress

A cocktail dress is a festive choice for the holiday season, offering just enough glam to take you through the end of 2015. This style is both classy and fun, but beware: Nothing ruins a polished party look like a rogue bra strap. The solution? Wacoal’s Red Carpet strapless bra provides comfort and support, while gripper strips and elastic edges guard against slippage. Removable straps allow for easy everyday wear once 2016 rolls around.

The Skinny Pants

It’s the age-old question: Can comfort and style coexist? If you’re kickin’ it in a pair of your favorite black skinnies, you already know the answer. This ultra-cool closet staple can be dressed up or down, but it demands one accessory regardless of the occasion: the right panties. VPL is the last thing you want when you’re going for a sleek look, so make sure to invest in a comfortable thong in stretch lace for a smooth start to the new year.

So, you’ve got big plans this year, have you? If you’re pulling on a fabulous dress complete with cutouts or a low back, don’t risk a wardrobe malfunction with the wrong bra (or no bra). The solution? A stay-put backless bra that still provides lift and support in all the right places. A little extra padding gives you bombshell curves that will keep you feeling confident as you bid farewell to 2015.

When the ball drops this year, make sure you’re looking your best with sleek but supportive undergarments that flatter your figure and provide the support you need.
