I bought a couple of new dresses from ASOS for the holidays, including this ASOS CURVE Asymmetric Shoulder Pad Bodycon Mini Dress. The fabric is slightly shimmery and the draping is great at hiding a food baby on one side. LOL so throw on some spanx or shapewear if you are self conscious of your belly. Keep in mind though that if you are going out this New Years Eve, that taking shapewear on and off is a hassle and a half.
NYE Shimmer & Shoulder Pad Bodycon Mini Dress
When it comes to choosing shapewear, you need to consider a few things.
- How long you will be wearing them
- Ease of removal
- Visible Panty Lines (VPL)
I learned this the hard way during my engagement shoot where I wanted to have 1 pair of under garments for all of my looks. I stopped drinking liquids after my first battle with my Spanx because I couldn’t handle pulling them back on again. Many people drink during NYE, so consider yourself warned.
Also, if you are self conscious about your panty line avoid brief style Spanx. I personally like shorts style shapewear because they help with chafing and don’t ride up my butt when I walk.
Here are some shorts style shapewear
As you can see, I avoid the longer shorts because most of my dresses are much shorter than what the undergarment industry deems appropriate for a plus size lady.
This ASOS CURVE Asymmetric Shoulder Pad Bodycon Mini Dress was an impulse purchase because I needed dress options for Christmas and New Years Eve. Pre-Christmas I rocked a red dress with ruffles and decided to save this bad boy for NYE since it has the shimmer and bodycon shape that make it great to wear for a night out.
You can easily wear this NYE outfit with heels but I prefer my OTK navy blue boots from Lane Bryant. After years of trying to find some OTK boots for my plus size wide calves, these made my closet complete.
