Does the very thought of buying shapewear give you a headache? If so, you are not alone. The market is flooded with new styles, brands and designs, all of which serve an entirely different purpose. But since shapewear can transform your outfit and help you feel more confident, it definitely is not a subject we should dismiss.

From day one, they have prided themselves on innovation, using revolutionary fabrics and giving you a flawless fit.

Just scroll down to school yourself in the rules of shapewear fashion and which pieces of Co’Coon shapewear you can wear with your skinny jeans, pencil skirts, dress and much more.
The Pencil Skirt
Co’Coon says that this form-fitting skirt requires a streamlined, pulled-together look from the midriff through the thighs, so your best choice of shapewear is a shaping short.
Co’Coon’s classic shaping short are completely seamless, so they will not make ant telltale lines and bumps that you are wearing shapewear, which is of importance when wearing a pencil skirt.
A Fitted Top or Sweater
When wearing a fitted top or sweater you want to prevent bunching and maintain a completely tucked in look. A control bodysuit will keep your look streamlined and keep everything tucked in. Plus it is a great option, to avoid accidently exposing your tummy.
We love the classic Co’Coon control bodysuit as it shapes and tones your midriff and doesn’t leave any lines, no matter how tight fitting is your ensemble. Plus, we love the fact that it can be worn with your favorite bra and comes with adjustable straps.
The Body Conscious Dress
Often called a Body Con Dress, as it makes you and everyone else very conscious of your sexy curves and body. Co’Coon agrees with us that this style of dress requires a hi-waist tummy control pantyhose. Look for a style that has a non-slip hemline that won’t ride up or bunch up. Plus a seamless design so no lines will show through and ruin your style.
Co’Coon’s hi-waist pantyhose will give you amazing stretch with open toes to eliminate tears or sags will putting them on. The innovative diamond stitches will smooth your entire body, while giving your booty a little lift me up. Trust me with these pantyhose, you will have the confidence to wear the tightest bodycon dress.
The Skinny Jean
The last thing you want to do when wearing skinny jeans is squash your tush. Look for a control thong or booty-lifting brief that will flatten your hips and tummy but lift your booty, all at the same time.
Co’Coon’s booty lifting boy short’s seamless design means zero panty lines under your skinny jeans and gives you some up-lifting butt attention. Plus, it is made using the innovative BIOCrystals-infused fabric that will nourish your skin, leaving it softer than ever.
The Off-The-Shoulder Top and Dress
If you have been following this year’s and last year’s latest styles, you know that the open-shoulder look is here to stay. Co’Coon says most women try wearing strappy camisoles underneath but it just ruins the entire look. Look for slips and camisoles that come with strapless designs to keep a streamlined look.
Co’Coon has a huge selection of strapless shapewear that stay up and make the ideal foundation for your outfit. Check out this high waisted brief that clips on to your bra, for zero chance of slippage.
The Slip Dress
Co’Coon knows that the key element to pulling off this look is simplicity. So, you would want to wear a simple control brief, which will make you feel like everything is tucked in and in control.
Plus it will look very chic, if your dress is a tad bit sheer. Celebrities this year are pairing their sheer dresses with a pair of control briefs. Try this new style with Co’Coon’s Powernet Panty.
