A camisole is the name given to most shapewear that focuses on our torsos. Camisole shapewear gives a seamless and toned look under sheer or form-fitting tops. A camisole can provide the following benefits:
Privacy with a low cut or sheer top
Smoothes away any bulges (in the back or front) or bra lines
Slimming around the waist
Support & lift for your bust
As you might imagine, with this range of benefits it is difficult to pick just one type of camisole. You may need several different types of camisoles to meet your basic fashion needs. Just keep in mind your goals and you are sure to make the best choice for your individual needs.
