It’s no secret that pantyhose have earned mixed reviews from modern women. Some people insist on a bare leg, while others appreciate the flattering benefits that hosiery can offer. Surprisingly, today’s younger women are especially open to incorporating stockings, tights and hosiery into their stylish wardrobes. Hollywood stars like Beyonce, Emma Watson and Megan Fox have rocked this vintage-inspired look, and you can, too! We’re exploring the best ways to wear hosiery in the summertime – and it’s not as difficult as you may think!
Don’t just settle for a run-of-the-mill pair of nylons. Look for a shade that matches your skin tone for the most natural presentation. We carry a wide range of hues to suit every complexion, so you don’t have to worry about your legs not matching the rest of your body.
Berkshire Flat Tummy Silky Sheer Pantyhose, $12
Sheer to waist, that is! Anyone who’s worn pantyhose knows that many styles have waist and thigh panels that are darker than the main length of the leg. While these panels are often designed with flattering compression to smooth the midsection, they’re not always discreet – particularly when paired with summertime apparel. Look for sheer-to-waist alternatives with all the shaping benefits but no visible panels. These are perfect for mini skirts, short dresses and, as Kate Middleton knows all too well, unexpected gusts of wind.
Berkshire Firm All the Way Concealer, $12.50
One of the most challenging considerations when wearing hosiery in the summer months is figuring out how to wear it with open-toe shoes. Fortunately, many modern designs are made to cover the length of the leg while leaving the toes exposed. For the most discreet wear, look for strappy sandals and wedges that keep the cut-out line hidden.
Berkshire Ultra Sheer Control Top Pantyhose Without Toes, $7.50
When it comes to style, take a cue from Marilyn Monroe. Old Hollywood starlets loved fishnet hosiery – and for good reason. Its open-weave construction is much more breathable and lightweight. Don a pair with a vintage-inspired ensemble for a retro-chic look, or partner this style with deconstructed shorts for a rock star aesthetic.
Leg Avenue Spandex Diamond Pantyhose, $7.50
Shiny objects are certainly pretty, but when it comes to flattering your figure, it’s best to leave the sparkle to your jewelry. Matte finishes are much more realistic and provide just enough of a natural sheen to flatter your stems accordingly.
Berkshire Waist Cincher Pantyhose, $13.75
Pantyhose can give you the confidence you need to wear revealing summer styles, and they’re sure to make your legs look and feel super smooth. Do you wear hosiery in the summertime, or do you prefer going bare instead? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section below!

How can you upgrade the basic tank top? With shaping technology, of course! At Classic Shapewear, we have plenty of shaping tanks to choose from – and they’re super easy to incorporate into your personal style. We’re taking a look at some of the most popular ways to wear your shaping tanks this season, so get ready to shape up your wardrobe!
The hottest trend for the warm months ahead is undoubtedly athleisure wear. Popularized by Instagram “It Girls” and celebrities alike, this comfy-casual approach to fashion is a welcome change of pace. Even better, the basic leggings-and-tank combination is a great canvas for personalization. Wear a pink version for a feminine style, or choose tie-dyed hues for a little bohemian flair. It’s simple, relaxed and totally on point.
Freya Active Performance Underwire Sports Top, $98
Breton stripes are so Parisian chic, and a black and white tank top is one of the most versatile pieces a woman can own. Pair this essential top with slim white pants for a preppy finish, or wear it with tattered shorts for a nod to rock ‘n’ roll. This type of shaping tank looks especially fresh with a bright color, so wear it with a sunny palette of hues for fun combinations.
Give your shaping tank a whimsical makeover with some boho separates. Wide-leg trousers in bright prints, flowy maxi skirts and sheer kimonos all transition a neutral style to bohemian territory, while a layered shaping tank brings its own artsy charm.
If a capsule wardrobe is more your thing, the solid-color shaping tank is exactly what you need. Basic pieces are always classic, and the essential black or white tank top is no exception. Style it accordingly with black trousers, clean-cut denim or elegant midi skirts for a look that’s all style and no fuss.
Cass V-Neck, $58
For the gal who loves to dress girly, there’s no better formula than a standard tank top with a mid-length skirt. This style takes its cues from Christian Dior’s figure-flattering “New Look” aesthetic by highlighting a small waist and skimming over the hips and thighs. It’s effortlessly feminine and timelessly pretty.
Naked Essential Cotton Stretch Criss Cross Cami, $54
Upgrade a neutral topper with a cheerful pop of color. Flirty prints and bold patterns demand simple styling, so pair these two pieces for a match made in heaven.
Speaking of matches, sometimes the best way to play matchmaker is by having a mix up. Pair your striped shaping tanks with floral skirts, or combine an abstract print with unexpected colors. Just keep the prints balanced and the rest of the look clean.

Travel plans ahead? The spring and summer months are when many of us book our getaways to exotic locales (or sometimes staycations instead). But if you’re planning on packing up, heading out of town and leaving your cares behind, it’s important to make sure you have everything you need. After all, realizing that you forgot your strapless bra when you have a suitcase full of tube tops is guaranteed to make any vacation a stressful one. We’ve rounded up some of the best shapewear styles to include in your suitcase to make sure you’re properly covered no matter your destination.
Whether you prefer bustiers, torsolettes, longline bras or basic strapless bras, you definitely need a strapless shaper in your luggage. It goes with anything and everything in your closet, especially when you choose a style with a low-cut back for daring dresses.
Vacation dresses are usually breezy and lightweight, but that oftentimes means they can be sheer in the sunlight. To keep yourself covered, bring a shaping slip with you on your trip. Nude styles are especially versatile, while “skorts” give you the comfort of biker shorts beneath the illusion of a slip.
Challenging necklines or dangerous cut-outs? Be prepared for anything with a multitasking bra. Our multi-way styles accommodate racerback fronts and backs and well as crisscross straps, tube tops and halter necks. They’re a must-have for your suitcase no matter where you’re jetting off to, so pack accordingly.
When you want the benefits of shaping compression but don’t want the telltale signs, the high-waisted thong is your answer. The control top panel cinches your waist, and the thong backside eliminates unwanted panty lines. These are especially ideal underneath short shorts and skirts, as they remain discreet.

Leggings are the ultimate loungewear, and they’re a travel essential due to their limitless styling possibilities. Pack a few pairs in classic neutral hues like black, white and gray. We even carry warm-weather leggings that are designed to wick moisture away from the skin. You’ll rely on them for those adventure-packed outings, and you’ll stay comfortable even on those tiresome flights.

It might be summer, but that doesn’t mean that the temperatures won’t dip a bit in the evening. Guard against a chilly night with a lightweight robe in cotton or satin. It’s a comfortable way to cover up without getting overheated.

It’s estimated that women only wear approximately 20% of the items in their closets, and we think that’s a major waste of space! It’s so important to invest in items that are flattering on your figure and versatile enough to go with a wide range of unique looks. Fortunately, our smocked sundresses are a perfect example of a multitasking must-have. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite outfit combinations on Pinterest to show you just how versatile these colorful sundresses can prove.
Look #1: Modern
While it’s crucial to stock your closet with neutral classics, that doesn’t mean you can’t look trendy. In fact, these everyday basics give you the foundation you need to experiment with different trends. Top off one of our sundresses with a sleeveless white vest for a look that’s super chic and fashion forward. Complete the look with peep-toe mules or strappy flats, and add some arm candy like stacked cuffs and bracelets. The finished outfit is clean and minimal, with the sundress providing the only hint of color.
Look #2: Romantic
Date night? Look and feel your best by adding an open cardigan to your sundress of choice. A pair of nude heels elongates your legs, while strappy pumps in a print or color pop add a playful finishing touch. Finish your look with a messy half-up, half-down updo or a simple side part.
Look #3: Professional
Black may be the go-to color for traditional blazers, but thinking outside the box can yield stylish results. Consider a maroon, olive or color pop alternative instead. A white button-down blouse layered beneath your sundress is ideal for office wear and keeps the look properly modest. Finish with comfy ballet flats or T-strap pumps.
Look #4: Casual
A denim jacket is a timeless piece you’ll turn to time and time again, and it looks especially fresh when paired with a colorful sundress. Think vacation getaways that involve lots of walking, or a busy day ahead running errands. The look is pulled together without being fussy. Slip on a pair of flat sandals or comfy ankle boots, and you’re all set.
Look #5: Bohemian
Boho chic is such a fun style to experiment with, and our sundresses are a great canvas for whimsical styling. Consider a crocheted outer layer or a sheer kimono, and pair it with gladiator sandals or chunky platforms. A mixed print scarf adds some extra dimension, too. Add a braid to your hairdo, and pile on plenty of jewelry to complete the look.
Look #6: Preppy
Layer a fitted, button-down cardigan on top of your sundress, grab a colorblocked clutch and top the dress or even both pieces with a sleek belt. Voila! This look is the definition of preppy done right. Add some comfy sneakers or ballet flats to finish the outfit.
Impressive, right? Essentials like these make it easy to make the most of your closet. Which one of the looks above is your personal favorite? Share how you would style our smocked sundresses in the comments section below!

We’ve all heard that you have to dress for success, but apparently, what you wear underneath your clothes is just as important when it comes to your overall achievements. Last year, Maidenform took a look at the connection between work performance and undergarments in a survey of over 1,000 women. The results were eye-opening and gave compelling evidence to the notion that what we wear greatly influences how we act.
74% of those polled reported feeling much more confident when wearing shapewear at work, and 88% said that confident women are more likely to receive a promotion. The survey also found that 72% of women feel that they’re taken more seriously at work when they look their best.
Obviously, confidence is a multifaceted trait, but if shapewear increases self-assuredness so dramatically, it appears that it can in fact have an effect on the potential for climbing the ladder.
Other survey findings were just as fascinating. For instance, consider the following:
At Classic Shapewear, we know that can make an incredible difference in the way clothing fits on the body, and simply adding a few shaping garments to your wardrobe rotation can yield impressive results. Not only will you look better in your clothing, you’ll feel more confident and self-assured because you’re comfortable with your overall appearance. In addition, you’ll save time in your morning routine by not having to try on various outfits searching for something that flatters. Even better, modern shapewear is designed with comfort in mind, so you can focus on the job at hand rather than constantly adjusting an uncomfortable undergarment.shaping styles
Maindenform’s survey demonstrates that the benefits of shapewear extend far beyond nipping in your waist, slimming your thighs or amplifying your curves. Shaping attire can change the way we view ourselves, which can ultimately alter the way in which the world views us, as well. That’s a powerful discovery, and we’re excited to share it!
Do you regularly wear shaping garments at work? If so, do you find that they enhance your confidence and overall work performance? Let us know how shapewear affects your 9-to-5 ambitions in the comments section below!
Certainly no stranger to the spotlight, Kim Kardashian recently made waves when she “revealed” her favorite cleavage-enhancing trick: gaffer’s tape! While we’ll be the first to say that Kim always looks incredible, the thought of ripping tape off your chest is more than a little unpleasant. Before you scout the local hardware store for a roll of your own, why not consider some far less painful alternatives? We’re taking a look at some bra solutions with major cleavage-enhancing benefits (and zero discomfort).
One of the most versatile ways to enhance your cleavage is via adhesive bras. These designs are made for multiple styling possibilities, from backless dresses and strapless bodices to garments with intricate cut-outs. They’re basically mimicking Kim’s tape trick with their customizable adhesion, but they’re specifically built for adhering to delicate skin. Position them as you wish in order to best flatter your curves.
Breast enhancers do more than just add volume to the bust. They also round out its shape, lift breasts with comfortable support and boost the look of cleavage. Simply insert a gel or padded enhancer into your bra for discreet wear. These simple pieces are a great addition to your favorite bra or bralette and can help you customize your existing lingerie collection.
The plunge design goes above and beyond (and below) the traditional bra, and that’s ideal when it comes to cleavage. Regular bras only show the top portion of the bust, but a plunge bra features a deeper center that showcases more of the cleavage line. A halter neck further amplifies this effect by pushing the breasts closer together, and it’s the perfect solution for accommodating low-cut dresses and blouses with maximum support.
Classic Push-Up Bras
The traditional push-up bra is a classic for a reason: It works! Push-up styles are designed to lift and separate your breasts for flattering cleavage and a fuller-looking bust overall. These bras offer various amounts of padding, so you can choose just the right amount to suit your sizing needs. Stock up on these essential styles for regular wear, but be sure to keep a nude push-up bra on hand for versatile and discreet wear beneath any attire.
So tell us, ladies… have you considered trying out Kim Kardashian’s tape trick yourself, or do you prefer taking less painful measures to enhance your bust? Share your own cleavage-boosting tips and tricks in the comments section below!
