The year is drawing to a close and Christmas is right around the corner. Long lazy days, warm nights, and an endless stretch of parties, events and fun times are ahead. They say it is the most wonderful time of the year! But the festive season can also be a stressful one. Gifts to buy, dinners to attend, catch ups, visitors and long-lost relatives to entertain. It’s tiring, especially if you’re not dressed for comfort.

This Christmas, put yourself first with the Sonsee Woman range of shapewear. Our range provides the ultimate in comfort without compromising style, enabling you to enjoy all the silly season has to throw at you looking and feeling your best.

Christmas comfort

Christmas Day is for loved ones. Which can often mean a day of travelling from one venue to another with various feasts and bubbles and beers along the way. This kind of day takes energy, and a comfortable outfit that will move with you.

Here are our top tips to help you dress comfort-first on Christmas Day.

Flat shoes are your friend. The heels may look cute with your outfit, but when you’re climbing in and out of cars, carrying roast-laden trays and dodging sugar-filled kids underfoot, trust us, you’ll be glad if you opt for the flats.

Loosey goosey. Christmas is not a day for anything tight – especially around the waist. We’re talking flowy pants, loose skirts and shift dresses for ultimate comfort. If you’re after a little support with your outfit that shapes without suffocating, try the Sonsee Shapewear Short. It’s just like regular shapewear except it doesn’t suck.

Multi-layered. Here in Australia, chances are we’ll be blessed with a warm summer’s day – but you just never know. If you’re spending your day on the road, plan ahead with a few options for changing weather conditions: sunscreen and a hat if you’re lunching outside and a jacket if the evening becomes cooler.

Christmas self-care guide

It’s the season for giving! That doesn’t have to be limited to friends and family. Treat your number one this year – you! Here are some ideas for things that you can gift to yourself this Christmas.

Breathe in, breathe out. Take a moment to step back and breathe. Sign up for a yoga class or try a meditation to clear your mind and help ground you before the silly season takes hold.

Nail it. Round up the girls and head out for a pamper sesh! A mani-pedi will prep and prime you for all the events that are filling up your social calendar.

Book club. If you’re like most of us and are racking up a lot of screen time in your day-to-day, take a moment to unplug. Pick up a book or magazine and immerse yourself in its pages. Challenge yourself to read one thing cover to cover before summer’s end.

Catch some Zs. This is one that’s all too easy to neglect when things get busy, but the power of sleep is undeniable. Make time for a little shut-eye among all the partying so you can stay energised right through summer.

Face first. With salt, sand, sun (and maybe a glass or two of bubbles!) on the horizon, take the time to take care of your skin. Whether it’s a facial at a salon, a mask at home, or even a reboot of your daily skincare routine, looking after your skin will keep you looking and feeling fresh.
