This winter’s major trend is leaning towards showing off your curves. What else could we ask for, right? I’m all about believing in each women’s body being different and finding a way to highlight each person’s best assets. This curving trend is playful and exaggerated. Here are a few of my favorite curving styles:

From pant-suits to cocktail parties, the curves are bold and beautiful. Bodywrap pieces are made for a woman’s curves. The lighter pieces were made to smooth out any unwanted bumps while the everyday pieces are made to help contour the whole body. With these trending curves, here are a few of my favorite Bodywrap pieces that you’ll need for this winter’s trend:

The Christmas season is upon us, which means your inevitably getting flooded with mass amounts of invitations to holiday soirées from friends, family and even work. But, with all the hustle and bustle this time of year, how are you supposed to stay on your A-game for your daily tasks and still look superior for each of those get-togethers? Well, have no fear, as Body Wrap has paired our Pinup W/Underwire Bodysuit with four different outfit options, which will each make you look so good you won’t even have to bring presents to the party.
Cocktail Dress – These semi-formal dresses are perennially cute, easy to wear and perfect for any type of holiday party, whether at work or amidst friends. Pair the piece with our Pinup w/Underwire to ensure a snug fit up top and around the mid-section.
V-Back Dress - If your party is an upscale affair, you may want to go with something more chic, such as this flashy version of Zara’s popular V-Back Dresses. Despite having long sleeves to compliment the short cut on bottom, this jaw-dropping one-piece is meant to show off your figure, which can be covertly enhanced with the Pinup w/Underwire.
Sweater & Skirt – Since there seems to be another gimmicky sweater party added to our calender every Christmas, this option makes sure you’re covering the necessities, but still coming dressed to impress. Just pair a light-colored mini-skirt with a snug sweater that has an appropriate holiday theme (not too ugly!). Then, wear the Pinup w/Underwire underneath everything to keep your stomach from exploding after eating all those holiday goodies.
Long-Sleeve Cocktail Dress – Casual but unconstrained, this long-sleeve get-up has always been a favorite for holiday parties, as the versatility it brings allows the dress to be worn not only to any event, but in any temperature. While the short skirt is ideal for Spring get togethers, it becomes perfect for Winter too, upon pairing the outfit with matching leggings and our Pinup w/Underwire to keep warm and accentuate your curves.

Until having kids, Halloween is one of the of the few holidays where we forget about family and focus on ourselves — releasing our inhibitions via costume parties and cocktails. Given our passion here at Body Wrap for all events that entail dressing up, we’ve put together a list of three easy costume ideas that each incorporate one of our many shapewear fashions. Whether you choose to wear them or not, just make sure you take it easy on the candy.
Yoga Instructor – Anyone that’s been to a Yoga class knows the outfits the instructors wear are typically tight, yet breathable. Well, couple our All-Inclusive Bodysuit with a few loose wristbands and some bare feet, and you’ll be looking the part in a matter of minutes.
Wonder Woman – This famous female wasn’t just the only lady to give Superman a run for his money, she’s also an excellent idea for a Halloween get-up! Simply pair our Organza Red Sculpt & Shape bodysuit with some royal blue, high waist boyshorts, a vanity crown kids crown and pair of tall white boots. For added flare, you can cut out stars and the WW logo, then tape them to the outfit (that way they won’t ruin the clothing). As far as her magic lasso goes? Well, you’re on your own for that one.
Pirate – We all know ladies love to show their booty for Halloween. However, dress as a pirate and you’ll inevitably be stealing their thunder with your classy and creative costume! All you need is our Catwalk High-Waist Capri, a puffy white shirt, a do-rag or two and a cheap pirate pack from any dollar store that includes a plastic hat and sword. From there, you can feel free to pillage whomever you like.

After a string of mediocre Super Bowl half-time performances that included Madonna and the Black Eyed Peas, the NFL may have found a winner, by choosing Beyonce as the mid-game entertainment for the upcoming event in February. Seeing as the halftime show and commercials are pretty much the only parts of this big game most ladies care about, choosing the former Destiny’s Child star definitely means more woman will be tuning in this year than ever. Since Jay-Z’s wife has always been known for her sense of style, here are three of our favorite extravagant outfits she’s sported over the years – all of which can be pieced together with The Pinup w/Underwire or Sculpt Shape Bodysuit from Body Wrap.
2011 Billboard Awards - During her performance of “Who Runs The World? (Girls),” Lady Be not only blew the roof off the building, but left most male attendees picking their jaw off the ground with her metallic-string one-piece. Even though it seems completely revealing, The Pinup w/Underwire would stay within the confines of the exposing dress, as well as tighten your torso and blend with appropriate skin tones.
2009 Oscars - While performing a tribute to musicals alongside Hugh Jackman during film’s biggest night, the singer sported a shiny red-sequenced number, with skin-tone leggings and shoulder-length gloves. But, the bulk of the outfit still only covered her upper body, which can be complemented perfectly with Sculpt Shape Bodysuit.
2009 MTV Music Awards - Before Kanye came on stage and ruined the event, Beyonce performed her Video Of The Year-winning single “Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)” and tore the house down with a breakthrough performance. For a legless, slightly see-through one-piece like Bey wore that big night, The Pinup w/Underwire would allow the dress to shine, while still discretely tightening your upper-half.
If you’ve got a fancy get-together or performance where you’re going to be showing off a lot of leg and still want to slim your upper-body, consider pairing your outfit with the The Pinup w/Underwire or Sculpt Shape Bodysuit for award-winning results.
As I’m a sunny-weather-kind-of-woman, bundling up for winter must by in style. I want a look that’s bold but still classy. Fur and faux fur looks are trending for this coming winter. The cozy appeal of a fur jacket has defintaly caught my eye this season. Any woman can wear a fur coat. The key is finding a cut and color that matches your style. Fur can be edgy, boho and classy.

I am melting over the fur looks on the runways this season. Each of these jackets can go with your little black dress for a holiday cocktail party or with dark jeans and a sheer blouse for a date night. Although fur may be a step outside of your everyday look, like it is mine, it’s worth venturing into a new trend for a season. Just like with shapewear. I’m going to be wearing my Catwalk High-Waist with my fur jacket. It’ll help give me an hourglass figure under all that fur-goodness.
The title “Sexiest Woman Alive” is not one that gets thrown around loosely.

Many of you probably heard about the Wisconsin TV news anchor, who received fan mail condemning her for weight issues and responded with a heartfelt message to viewers, candidly speaking on the situation and inner-beauty.

One of the hardest parts about changing seasons is that wardrobes alter along with the weather. Shorts become pants and skirts become dresses, while tank tops become layers – underneath anything from a tunic to a turtleneck. Basically, all the opportunities to show off some skin are put on hold for a few months, while warmer fall and winter wardrobes attempt to keep you cozy and still maintain some style. But, just because you’ll be adding those extra layers soon doesn’t mean there isn’t room for Shapewear.
For outfits that incorporate pants – whether it be jeans or dress slacks, try adding the Cat-Walk High-Waist Capri. Reaching up to the bust and down below the knees, this all-inclusive one-piece slenderizes your thighs and waistline, making it ideal for helping you fit any new pants perfectly or even squeeze into an older pair. Plus, the snug fit of this Shapewear piece doubles as extra layering, making sure your body is insulated during those cold winter walks to your office. Oh, and did we mention how good it makes your butt look? Yeah, that’s by design.
If you’ve factored in all those nice perks and think the Cat-Walk High-Waist Capri will slenderize your look over the holiday months, head to the Body Wrap shop and find the right color and size to match your preference today.

Christopher Kane - A bit more casual than most dresses walked down the runway, this canary yellow ensemble from the Scottish-born designer will lighten up any room you enter with it’s free-flowing design and welcoming color.

For around a decade, People Magazine has been naming the Best Dressed Woman in Hollywood. And, despite not having a marquee reputation for fashion, this trend-setting staple at grocery store check-out aisles everywhere typically draws praise for their picks, amongst readers and media alike. Well, their choice this year is no different, as the always elegant Gwyneth Paltrow has been given the chic connotation for 2012. To highlight the her fashionable fortitude, we’ve picked a few of stand-out styles from the Iron Man star and paired them perfectly with some Body Wrap Lite pieces that will help give our readers an A-list mindset, even when they’re not on the red carpet.
Take this grey, wool dress, for example. If you’re going somewhere that calls for both casual and classy attire, find a cute item in your closet that’s a similar cut to what Gwenyth is wearing above, with the exposed upper-chest and skirt riding right above the knees. Pair that with a Chic High-Waist and you’ll easily accentuate your curves and still show off enough skin to earn some quality attention.
There’s also options for upscale affairs. If you’re attending an event that calls for something similar to the shimmering one-piece Paltrow is pulling off above, then you might want to consider The Smooth Catwalk High-Waist, which tightens your mid-section and still allows your cleavage and legs to shine from those narrow cuts on the dress.
With Body Wrap Lite, you can pair just about any type of outfit you like with our slenderizing Shapewear and you’ll be feeling like Hollywood royalty in no time.
