Shaping, Mad Men-Style

Last week, we talked about some fabulous bras to complement your Mad Men style and give you the type of shaping that really evokes images of that era. Today, we’re going to talk about shaping – Mad Men-style! Most women in this era weren’t naturally hourglass-shaped any more than women are today, but many women in that period pinched and squeezed themselves into shapers and corsets to have the type of shape they really wanted to show off. You can still create the same classic silhouette today, but shapewear has come a long way since then – now you can look great and still be comfortable with these great shapers!

Rago High Waist Thigh Slimmer
The Rago Long Leg Hi-waist Panty Girdle 6207, featured by Mad Men costume designer Janie Bryant on Dr. Oz, is a great way to take 20 pounds off instantly and smooth unsightly bumps and lumps. This thigh slimmer focuses on areas where many women need help, smoothing away midriff bulges, thigh jiggles and tummy pudge. Patented control waist, hips and back help you create a flattering silhouette, and look great under a tight-fit skirt or dress. Great control option for women who want a little shaping to help capture that elusive hourglass figure and look more toned and svelte.



Venus Open Bottom Girdle
The Venus Open Bottom Girdle is another great option for women who want shaping in the midriff area. This girdle doesn’t offer the full thigh control that the Rago slimmer above features, but it has great shaping and smoothing in the tummy and midriff, with a bit of upper thigh and hip shaping. Open bottom makes it easy to pair with whatever you want to wear, and garter option makes this well suited for dresses or skirts where you’d like to wear a pair of sexy stockings or hosiery.




Rago Open Bottom Corselette

If you’re looking for more coverage or are afraid of spilling over the top of a girdle or other high-waisted shaper, the Rago Open Bottom Corselette 9357 is a great option. This fuller-coverage body briefer offers the same open bottom and garters you get in the Venus Open Bottom Girdle above, but with full-body coverage. No need to worry about muffin top or unsightly bulges above the top of the high waist. Circling bands help control the waist, hips and back, with tummy flattening focus and inside bands to prevent the girdle from riding up. This is a great complement with sheathe dresses or other form-fitted dresses and skirts.


Va Bien Long Leg Bodyshaper
This great longleg bodyshaper by Va Bien is a fantastic option if you’re looking for the fuller covearge of a body briefer, but also want more high and upper leg coverage. This bodyshaper promises firm control and a sleek silhouette, with helpful features like a comfortable lace bra with inner cup for extra lift, and adjustable straps. This is a great body shaper option for women who are looking for more coverage and really want to rock a great slacks outfit, sexy suit for the office, or even a longer, form-fitted dress.

If you’ve ever wondered how women looked so great back during the Mad Men era, this is it! Check out these great shapers that combine comfort with control, and rock your own Mad Men look, or just look fabulous!
