When trying to define an hourglass or more feminine figure many of our customers choose to enhance their breast first and then usually reduce the waist with the aid of a steel-boned corset, a simple cincher or a girdle. We find that many forget the missing piece, the hips. If blessed with hips as wide or wider than one’s shoulders then enhancement will not be needed but. if like many, you are slimmer in the hip than the shoulder area, the chances are you will need some help to produce a more realistic female shape.
There are now hip enhancement garments available that are tailored exclusively to your measurements costing as much as $1000 or more. We recommend you try some of the cheaper solutions first before thinking of researching any purchase over $100’s as you may well find a solution that works for you for less than $50 !
GlamourBoutique.com prides itself in offering good value hip enhancement solutions in a range of affordable prices from around $15 to just under $50. Our most popular hip enhancement panty is the Sweet Cheeks hip and fanny panty that is made from strong girdle material and has 2 large removable pads that gives good hip and fanny enlargement. This panty is also good for those customers with larger waists up to a 48” and is made to last. But what if you are on a tight budget – what are the options then?
Just as bird seed and old stockings or pantyhose can be used to make your own set of breast forms, some foam and a sharp craft knife can be a cost effective method of making your very own hip pads. Once shaped they can then be placed inside a snug fitting girdle or support pantyhose to hold them in place. However, you do need a steady hand and patience to sculpt a realistic looking hip pad. Take your time and cut small pieces away each time to ensure you get a rounded shape with no sharp corners. Sharp corners are always a big giveaway when trying seeking to enhance the hips with the use of padding, either home-made or pre-purchased.
If you do not have the time or patience to make your own then a good, cheap alternative is to simply purchase a pair of rounded hip pads that you then simply slip inside your existing undergarments for a quick and realistic enhancement of the hip area. The advantage of these is you can just add hips if you have sufficient fanny but purchase a 2nd pair and add more fanny if you need that too.
Some folk even have sufficient hip action already and simply want more of a Marilyn Monroe or Jay-Lo ‘booty’. If that’s the case try a simple pair of butt-enhancing panties; similar to the Hip and Fanny panties available on the market but they tend to have much less or no hip enhancement at all so that all you get is a boost to the ‘Booty’ area.
Versions of most of the hip and fanny panties now on the market are also available with silicone gel pads. Most versions of these start at just over $100 and rise in price to over $1000 depending on whether they are bought off the peg or they are manufactured strictly to your size specifications. Also, do bear in mind if going the personalized route, these panties tend to take 8 to 12 weeks to be made so there is a long wait involved. Furthermore, you need to bear- in -mind that silicone is non-porous and so does not breathe – if you are a lady who perspires easily then this may not be a solution for you.
Other issues you may want to think about are garment size and choice for dresses and skirts. When you add padding you may have to go up a size in dresses and skirts – if in doubt be sure to shop with a specialist store like GlamourBoutique.com who have size charts and where needed live customer support online or at the end of a phone to help you with your sizing requirements when looking for clothes.
