Curve control, the new generation of shapewear that controls and delivers performance guarantees the silhouette but in much lighter weights, with comfort and without diminishing the power of the previous generation. Matte through to semi bright surfaces feature as do clean cut fabrics and laser cutting details. Black and flesh tones continue to be the best-sellers, but look to lighter and modern color offerings in injecting a freshness to this integral part of the intimate apparel sector. Continuing to be dominated by synthetics, look to the inclusion of cotton touch offerings and natural cotton.

This is a trend that is set to push shapewear into a more fashion driven delivery, with brands coordinating bras to give it an extra fashion element. For silhouettes, a modern approach is taken, it is time to shift from the girdle inspiration and deliver lighter weight and comfortable shaping panty products.
