Holiday parties and special occasions call for gathering up friends, family, and colleagues to celebrate… and a great opportunity to wear your most razzle dazzle outfits! This is the time to go for it with the most daring plunge front, low back, or sheer outfits. But the big question is: what do you wear underneath your holiday outfits?  Luckily, I know! I’ve been fitting folks since 2005 and finding all the shapewear, bra, and undergarment solutions. I was made for this moment! That’s why I’m so thrilled to be back (in person!) with The Marilyn Denis Show up in Canada to share about exactly this. In fact, in this fun appearance I paired up with style expert and producer, Mana Mansour, for a fun tag team style segment. Mana chose the outfits, and yours truly picked what went underneath. Hurray!  Take a peek below for some holiday (and anytime!) bras, shapewear, and undergarment solutions for YOUR next outfit.  

Psst! Some of the brands linked here are proud partners of mine (so grateful to share them with you!) or I may get a small thank you if you purchase through me. Your purchase through those links like these helps a lot in keeping articles like this coming your way. Either way, I always share items that I truly love and can help you say hurray!

Buy & Try

If you’re looking for new things to wear under your holiday outfits and festive frocks, here are the styles from the show (and a few extra!) to buy and try yourself. Remember, these supportive items can be worn all year long and under several outfits and clothes. Hurray!

Unique Neckline

First up on Tamiah is a snug dress that hugs curves and moves with the body. For this, go with seamless undergarments that won’t show like the brief I shared below. And that neckline needs unique support so check out the new seamless and customizable stick on bra from one of my go-to brands. Tamiah loved wearing it so much that she wore it home!

My Perfect Pair | Flatter Me Breast Tape

  • One of my favorite breast tape brands, known for her gorgeous lace styles, just came out smooth, stretchy, skin tone options for underneath thin tops for a smooth look!
  • Avoid the back band line or cup bubbling over like you might have with a strapless bra
  • Sand, chocolate, or midnight so you can match your outfit or the skin tone that works best for you.
  • Bonus: you can cut these to match any neckline or outfit for a custom fit!
  • Sizes: S-XXL

TIP: Remember to use nipple covers, then wash your bust of any oils and air dry before applying – SO important for safety and to help these stay in place. Then use oil of any kind (baby oil, body oil, even olive oil – no judgment) for easy lift off. For more information on this, check out my blog post on adhesive bras.

Sheer Delight

Wear a sheer number like Stephanie and let your undergarments be a part of the show! Go for something opaque underneath for a little modesty and a clean canvas so you can let the dress do most of the talking.

Anita | Twin Shaper

  • So chic you might as well let it show!
  • Made to sculpt the hips and tummy with targeted design
  • Additional control in the abdomen for shape and a high rise gives coverage under a sheer outfit so you’re not showing too much, or wear it under any outfit!
  • Soft double layer back coverage so nothing shows through!
  • Most shapewear rolls but this stays put! I love the sleek front
  • German engineering and design means this is well built and will last
  • Sizes: S-L

Low Back and Snug

Tara is wearing a red statement dress that says “I’ve arrived!”. A snug dress like this needs smooth lines and a dramatic back to match the moment! I knew just the thing.

My Perfect Pair | Isabella Shapewear

  • All in one shapewear means no lines and a killer silhouette
  • The low back is open and ready to impress
  • This versatile neckline allows you to adjust and switch up the straps to accommodate a variety of necklines
  • The bust portion is light support and stretchy, so you can manipulate it – and even wear a stick on bra with it if you like

  • Bonus: the open crotch area allows for easy trips to the restroom without having to completely disrobe!
  • Designed by a Canadian and woman owned!
  • Sizes: XS/S – XXXL/XXXXL

Modest and Chic

A reminder: wear what makes YOU feel great. Maybe you love the look of a plunging neckline or a daring style. You can 100% rock the look with tape and bare a little, OR maybe you want a little coverage, right? Put your undergarments to work! Try this clever little garment from Anita and Rosa Faia! It easily attaches to any bra with these little clips so you can get the peek-a-boo coverage from this beautiful lace. It almost looks like a camisole or like it’s part of your outfit! Super easy and chic and comes in several colors and sizes. I’m wearing this with my low front jumpsuit for a classy, chic look. Try it for yourself in one of several colors!

Rosa Faia | Fleur Lace Bandeau

  • Unique clips can attach to the front straps of nearly any bra
