Shapewear: the secret of celebrities for their red-carpet dresses

The famous Red Carpet walk, showing off designer gowns by famous celebrities, is an event that is a must see for many of us.

High profile awards ceremonies, such as the Oscars, the Cannes Film Festival, the SAG Awards, the Golden Globes Awards, or the Grammys all have the celebs boldly doing the walk.
We marvel at the gorgeous gowns and shake our heads in disbelieve over the daring and bold trend of showing a bit more flesh every year. Some proudly share that they are actually wearing nothing under their gowns-commando and nipple covers!

But, the big question in all our minds is: how do they look so trim and fit with no tummy bulge showing?

The secret is out: Shapewear

Big names such as Kim Kardashian, Eva Longoria or Kaley Cuoco all are huge fans of using shapewear to smooth and hide their imperfections. Many others admit, without shame, of their love of shapewear.

Imagine you are the one on the Red Carpet and you are NOT wearing any shapewear. The cameras capture every angle of your imperfect body and highlight the bumps and bulges. Would you feel confident? Nooooo, not at all!

Stylists will tell you that the success of the Red Carpet walk is the self-confidence that each celeb knows she looks awesome. They know they look fabulous. Shapewear helps flatter their figure, smoothing out the bumps and giving a more tailored and smooth look.

What are the celebs wearing under their gowns?

High-waist shorts are the most popular form of shapewear. They start below the breasts and end mid thigh, instantly toning and firming the waist, buttocks and thighs, offering great control. Gina Rodriguez had these on under her beaded PatBo dress at the SAG Awards. We all agree that we would like to look that great.

Mid-waist shorts are the best choice if the dress has a plunging neckline. Blake Lively at the Golden Globes strutted her look, confident with her choice of this under her gown. Its what we don’t see that flattered her body, making it look perfect.

High-waist panty offers control in the core and rear, starting above the belly button and ending at the top of the thighs. Kerry Washington looked awesome at the Golden Globes.
Her lace Dolce & Gabbana dress was draped over her black high-waist panty and it was definitely eye-catching.

The Mid-waist panty is very popular on the Red Carpet. This one offers a smoothing effect between the waist and the rear, meaning no more “pooch” action. Tracee Ellis Ross stunned the audience wearing these under her Zuhair Murad embellished gown with a sheer bodice, at the Golden Globes.

Smoothing Thong apparently is commonly worn on the Red Carpet. It is a staple choice of shapewear, which tones your core with no panty lines.

Shaping Tank instantly tones the core into the hourglass shape, offering control. Jill Scott loved hers at the Grammys awards under her Pantsuits.

So, the conclusion of the matter is that we, the public, now know the secret. Most celebs are wearing shapewear under their gowns.
