Dos and Don’ts of Shapewear & Underwear for Apple Body Shape

April 16 2020

People with an apple figure have great legs, narrow shoulders and hips with a fuller midsection. To flatten the tummy area while creating the look of a smaller waist, focus on shapewear with a seamless construction. This not only makes it more comfortable to wear, but also prevents any unflattering bulges as there are no side seams that can dig in to your skin.

Everyone’s body is beautiful, but sometimes we just need that extra help and boost to make us feel more confident and appreciate our body. Knowing how to dress for your specific body type will not only allow you to control your areas of concern but highlight your assets as well. Keep on reading to find out the Do’s and Don’ts of Shapewear and Undies if you have an Apple Body Shape!

 

Do – Underbust Shapers

Shapewear that features the tummy control panel going all the way under your bust is the perfect solution as this style will provide maximum compression to your entire stomach area for a smoother and slimmer silhouette. The smooth-feel fabric is comfortable to wear while providing a stretchy and figure hugging fit.

All of the B Free Ultimate Underbust Shapers features two pairs of adjustable and detachable straps in a matching colour and transparent to help ensure the control panel stays up. However these don’t necessarily need the straps as apply shapes tend to have their smallest point just under the bust so the panel will be able to stay nicely in place.

Choose from a variety of bottom finishes such as brief, shorts, thong or slip/dress to match your outfit, these will all work as they’re all made from the same fabrication, and strength of the tummy panel.

B Free Tips: Ensure that you tuck the tummy panel under your bra to further prevent it from rolling down. Also make sure that you fasten your bra in a comfortable tighter setting so it helps to keep the band firmly in place. This ensures that you achieve a smooth silhouette throughout with no bulges in between.

For extra tummy control you may wear the Ultimate Stay Up Brief under any B Free Ultra Light Shaper Top or Slip. Alternatively, for a stronger and double targeted tummy compression, you wear the Ultimate Stay Up Brief under Magic Shaping Tank for maximum effect and smoother look. 

 

Don’t – Mid Waist Shapers

Apple shapes should avoid mid-rise shapewear like the plague as these will most likely dig in to the fullest part of the tummy and create unwanted bulges. This type of shaper will also tend to roll down more as it won't be long enough to reach your natural waist line.


Do – Targeted Tummy Control Shaper

Shapers that provide targeted tummy control such as a belly band is a great universal option for all body types looking to tone and flatten their tummy. The B Free Belly Band sculpts your body’s natural curves, smoothing and flattening your tummy for a slimmer midsection. The firm control yet stretchy knit fabric provides everyday comfort; the flexible boning ensures the shaper stays in place without rolling down as well as for added support.

Don’t – Steel Boned Corsets

Corsets with steel boning may be too uncomfortable to wear as it can greatly restrict your midsection, making it difficult to breathe in a relaxed manner. Our Maximum Tummy Control Belly Band is the better alternative as it provides full tummy compression and have a snug fit without suffocating the waist on an apple shape.


Do – Shaping Tops

This revolutionary shapewear top will tone and slim your torso for a sleeker silhouette. The B Free Magic Shaping Tank provides medium support and features shaping rib panels at the sides to cinch in your waist to help create a more hourglass look. The smooth-touch seamless fabrication feels gentle on the skin for everyday comfort and has no tags or seams to minimise any irritation. You may also wear this shaper in lieu of a bra as the underbust panel help support your bust.

B Free Tip: For double targeted tummy control, you may wear the Magic Shaping Tank over the Ultimate Stay Up Brief for double core compression and achieve a super smooth silhouette.

Maybe? – Padded Shapewear

Many women are intimidated and feel weird towards the idea of wearing padding. As an apple shape, you may dislike the idea of wearing booty pads or hip boosters as it may just add more bulk to your figure. Padded shapewear is not up to everyone’s liking and that’s totally fine! This is just an extra option if you’re looking for an extra glamorous boost to your lower body.

To balance out a full midsection, you may want to consider trying out padded shapewear to add more volume to your lower body, creating more curves to your hips and fuller derriere. At B Free. We have engineered the design so you can achieve a natural looking result but with subtle to maximum impact.

You can either choose to wear just hip boosters or pair it with booty pads for a more hourglass silhouette and achieve a va-va-voom look! These pads stick to undergarments such as shapewear for maximum comfort.

B Free Tip: For size 16 and up, we recommend wearing 2 hips pads on each side to create a bigger boost. To wear 2 hip pads, stack and offset the hip pads to make a longer and thicker pad for each side.
