How to pick the right faja for your body

PHOTOS

I have to admit, unlike most Latinas, it took me a really long time to finally embrace fajas. I always saw shapewear as an easy way out to looking slim, without the exercise and healthy eating habits. That is until I learned that even the most toned chicas own a pair of supportive high-rise panties or corsets to give them that perfect hourglass shape. I've been hooked ever since. It's no wonder they're making such a strong comeback!

Ninel Conde is all about dishing her faja secrets, which makes it easy to love and hate her. I mean, the Mexican star was rocking abs just a few months after giving birth to her son Emmanuel last year. Apparently, she owes it all to her exclusive faja made of the latest technology that promises to suck your chichos in and form a tinier waist. With waist training becoming the latest celebrity fad, I admire Conde for making a business out of the trend. Check out her latest faja, how much you can expect to pay and eleven other celebrities that swear by our longtime beauty secret!

I have to admit, when I first heard that Jessica Alba wore a double corset for three months straight to flatten her post-pregnancy belly, I really wasn't surprised at all. Latinas have been using this trick for years and it seems like now is when everyone is catching on, including shapewear brands that are designing girdles especially for women who want to get their pre-pregnancy bods back. The difference is the shapewear from today is WAY more comfortable than the ones our mamás and abuelitas used to wear back in the day. So if you're looking to lose that tummy, I might just have the perfect solution. Check out a few of these 11 tummy-flattening fajas that will snap you back into shape in no time!

10 Latina celebs with the BEST cleavage

jlo PHOTOS

We all know Jennifer Lopez is a big fan of deep-plunge necklines and showing off her amazing cleavage--I would too if those styles looked that good on me! J.Lo visited Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live in a revealing black dress with leather and mesh detail. Say what you want about J.Lo, but you can't deny that the Boricua has amazing fashion sense. Granted, she won't ever be able to top the infamous jungle-print green Versace dress, but I give her credit for constantly trying. I also can't help but notice that her cups are pretty age defying! They are still standing proud. Go, J.Lo!

10 Styles to avoid if you want to look thinner

PHOTOS

The crop top, high-waisted trend has obviously become Kim Kardashian's signature look. She's worn so many variations of this style and yet owns it every single time. You have to give the girl credit where credit is due. Kim knows how to rock clothes that flatter her figure--most of the time at least! But I have to admit, that black long-sleeved crop top paired with those Alexander McQueen pants she wore for her Fleur Fatale fragrance event wasn't doing it for me. If anything it made her look at a lot wider in the waist area. Not a good call Kim!

10 Ways to fake a smaller waist with your clothes

Salma PHOTOS

Women around the world would kill to have Salma Hayek's curves (myself included). The woman has the perfect hourglass figure. Big boobs, wide hips and this teeny tiny waist. But what's even more impressive than that, is how Salma accentuates her shape with clothes. Take the Equality Now's Make Equality Reality event she attended earlier this month, for instance. She wore this gorgeous teal gown paired with a thick, black belt that really cinched in her waist. In fact, it made it look even tinier!
