Maximize your body with these fashion fixers for special occasion looks.

We’re smitten for the glitzy dresses we wear to gatherings and cocktail hours. But let’s face it, sometimes  those hemlines and form-fitting fabrics don’t always flatter our bodies.

We put together a list of must-have essential undergarments so you’ll look flawless and feel confident in that deep-V, backless number!

1. If spanks seem too extreme, the Dear Frankie High Waist Shaper Thong, ($35, at dearfrankie.ca)  is your best option. This thong keeps our waistline all-in without being uncomfortable.

2. Fashion Fit Solutions Body Tape ($9.99, at boutiques and FashionEssentials.com) keeps pesky deep necklines in place. Simply cut the tape to size, apply the sticky side to the garment, then peel off the second side and apply to the skin once you are ready. Your blouse wont budge!

3. As much as backless dresses or lace bras sans padding look sexy, sometimes they reveal too much. Fashion Fit Solutions  Soft Silicone Nipple Covers ( $10.99, at boutiques and FashionEssentials.com) are affordable and reusable nipple covers  to help us keep it classy when it gets a little chilly.
