Shapewear and Mondo Kaos
At Mondo Kaos we also carry a small exquisite selection of shapewear. Shapewear can be used to advantage for events where your vintage style dress must fit perfectly. It gives extra focus on the beautiful hourglass figure while at the same time a 'waist-nipper' will also support the back for an optimal posture. Shapewear will without a doubt make, for example, a tight-fitting pencil dress sneak up to the body like a dream.
What type of shapewear should I use?
We carry various shapewear from brands such as Maidenform, What Katie Did and Swedish Stockings.
Shapewear skirt / dress.
We have, for example, a shapewear skirt from Maidenform which consists of a bodystocking with a button closure at the bottom that holds the belly and shapes the waist. On the outside there is a "skirt" which helps to smooth out. The skirt is cut below the chest so you can use any bra for.
The Shapewear skirt creates a beautiful silhouette and is perfect under a tight dress, instead of, for example, a petticoat.
Waist nippers or waist cincher.
These we carry from Maidenform and What Katie Did. As the name suggests, the focus here is on the slim waist. No matter what shape you have, this will help you put optimal focus on the waist. Perfect under dresses with extra focus on the waist and hourglass shape.
We have both waist nippers that are pulled on or closed with clasps, depending on what suits you best.
From Swedish Stockings we have shape shorts. These shaping shorts have medium support, so they are comfortable while still holding the figure nicely. The flat seams mean that you do not see that you have anything on under your dress, you just get a taller and firmer figure.
You can wear these shorts over your tights for comfort or alone under your summer dresses to relieve friction between the bare thighs. From Swedish Stockings we also have regular support tights.
When do I use shapewear?
You can use shapewear with medium support for everyday, such as support tights or shape shorts which have medium support and which can be comfortable in the summer when you have bare legs and want to wear something that relieves friction between the thighs, but which not seen from the outside.
It is obvious to use shapewear for parties, festive events or if you need to take photos, for example. Not only does shapewear help you to a firmer figure, you also get a more upright posture that will look good no matter what.
For example, use the waist nipper under a beautiful vintage swing dress, and highlight with a belt so that there is really full focus on your waist and hourglass silhouette. Or if you need to wear a body-hugging pencil dress, you can use a shapewear skirt or gown to get the perfect sleek vintage look.
Shapewear can thus be just the finishing touch to your vintage look for a special event. It can be just what makes it all play, and makes everything sit just right.
