Hi Girls! Today I’ll be covering as much as I can about shapewear in as few words as possible – which is a real challenge given the numbers and styles of the various forms of female shapewear! I’m gonna save you a pile of money as well!

Shapewear comes in many shapes and styles designed to give a lady an elegant, classy, cute, and sexy look while wearing her clothing. The words used to describe different types of shapewear I currently own include the following: bras, corsets or waist trainers, butt and hip enhancers, body briefers (both full and no breast types), and waist trimmers. I own every single type of these forms of shapewear in their three basic colors – black, nude/beige, or white – depending on what I’m going to wear that day or night over the shapewear.

All the above noted forms of shapewear may have different descriptive names assigned to them, and I couldn’t begin to list them all in a limited amount of words.

Here’s a couple of my best money saving tips when purchasing shape wear. 1) Please don’t go online and spend $100 to $300 on some silicone butt or hip enhancers or a pair of $200 silicone breasts. What a waste of money! Especially when you can get exactly what you need for a fraction of those prices! 2) You can purchase all the shape wear you need online at Amazon or in brick and mortar stores such as Walmart, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, The Ross Stores, or The Burlington Stores.

When it comes to silicone breasts, you can’t beat Amazon for the quality and price. Mine are gorgeous in a perfect 38B size and a perfect tear-drop shape with the most beautiful nipples on them you’ve ever seen! I only paid 28 bucks for them on Amazon and have had them for over five years. They are still perfect! My foam breasts I purchased online from of all places – Walgreens! They are extremely light weight, and I use them when I’m wearing my strapless bras, which are needed for dresses or tops that are shear from the top of the breasts to the top of my shoulders-(so no bra straps are showing.)

My butt and hip enhancers cost between $10 and 15 dollars from Amazon. I like the ones that come with the removable foam pads, have interior pockets for the pads, and have about a 2-inch piece of stretch lace at the bottom of the spandex panties. You usually must purchase the butt and hip-padded panties separately and put on both pairs when wearing something that has a snug fit around your butt. And when you order on Amazon Prime, the shipping is free, and the items are on your porch either in one or two days!

My corsets or waist trainers come from Amazon or all the brick and mortar stores noted above. The price for them ranges from $14 to $25 each. I have them in all three of the basic colors – black, nude, and white. The same goes for the purchase of full body briefers or braless body briefers. The location of purchase is the same as corsets or waist trainers and the prices are the same as well. When it comes to body briefers, you can buy them online or at any of the brick and mortar stores noted above.  

Here’s another couple of my very important Scarlett shapewear tips for you! First; when purchasing online, take the time to read the reviews from the customers who’ve already purchased the items you’re looking at. These reviews are critical to finding out about form, fit, function, and durability! I never buy any shapewear online without reading these very important reviews! Secondly; I usually purchase my shapewear one size smaller than recommended on the size charts. I like a firm fit when it comes to creating my girly curves! In many of the photos that you see of me on CDH, the only shapewear I have on is a size 38B bra with my 38B silicone breasts inserted in the bra. I simply don’t need shapewear when wearing dresses that have some sort of flare from the waist down. 

And speaking of breasts; Many crossdressers think “Bigger is better or sexier!” – WRONG! – That’s just not the case! In my Scarlett photos, I’m wearing 38B silicone breasts in a 38B bra. Based on the overwhelming number of compliments I receive, from so many of the sweet girls on this site, it confirms that my breast-size choice is the right choice! I want to thank you girls for all your lovely notes. I never take any of them for granted. Thank you so much for sending them to me!

Well girls, that’s a good start on this topic. I’m sure you may have additional questions you want answers to. If you have further questions regarding shapewear, please send them to me in a private message.

Love, Scarlett  XOXOXO

Thank you for the advice Scarlett. I have done quite a bit of shopping art Amazon and for the most part am happy with what I have. Trying a smaller size might help me with certain shaping items; good tip! I have debated about buying breast forms, and now hearing your testimony about using them, I feel that I am ready to get them. Bless you in all you do and thanks for being there for us!

Well one item I’ll be specific about is garter belts. Get the ones with metal clips. Yes they will cost more, but you’ll find overall the garment is made better. It won’t be a wear once or twice and its done thing. The plastic loops are very easy to break. I got a couple good garters from a place in the UK that does high quality and I guess somewhat fetish wear, but great product for $55 ea. still have them 5 or 6 years later. one has a little seam seperation that needs fixing, but they have lasted far… Read more »

Interesting article Scarlett. Normally I do not throw criticism out but I found your article flawed. I am a firm believer in that you get what you pay for and going about dressing inexpensively may work for some but not for all. It really comes down to what a person can afford and what the desired look a person wants. I have gone the route of cheap breast forms and found that the current ones I have were worth the price. If you are a CD that can not spend a ton of money on all the girl stuff finding… Read more »

Sweet Scarlett, thank you for taking the time to write such a informative article…you look stunning in the black dress by the way…your smile always brightens up my day. May I make a suggestion for another store where I purchase many of my clothes…Macy’s for years have been my store of choice…they offer terrific discounts. For example my black lace dress was 85 I paid 38 after a rewards discount..I love pantyhose Hanes reflections reinforced roe and control top. 3for $18! You mentioned in your article Amazon and sending packages home..Having such a supportive SO makes that possible, however for… Read more »

Thank you for the advice, Scarlett; the “two pairs” solution resolved a problem for me. And I certainly agree that “smaller is better” for breast forms. Most vendors of this product seem to think otherwise , unfortunately. Could you suggest the correct size corset/waist trainer for me? (Can’t try them on in advance). My natural waist is 34, hips 38, and everything looks too small.
