Shapewear helps us flaunt what we love and hide what we’re insecure about. They are simply amazing. However, it takes some getting used to when you decide to make Shapewear part of your undergarment collection. You can’t just wear anything you want. You have to get to know your Shapewear to find the best fit and the right fit. Some Shapewear may work well for you but take note that not all will do that.
There are different kinds of Shapewear and I hope to give you an idea about those kinds and type.
First of all, let’s talk about the types of Shapewear that would be great for hiding your problem areas:
Waist and Thigh Shaper
This is the most common Shapewear you would find, most probably because most of us want to conceal those pesky muffin tops and bumpy lumpy thighs. The waist and thigh Shapewear will fit snuggly around your stomach to comfortably push it in and around your thighs to give it a better more toned shape. This will make you look slimmer and any woman should have at least one of these just in case it’s the season for feeling bloated. It is made of spandex and nylon so expect a firm grip on your body when you’re wearing it. Spanx has very good waist and thigh shaper but since this is a common type of Shapewear, you actually have tons of options out there.
Upper Body Shaper
Love handles, flabby tummy and boobs that are way too big are some of the things you’d want to hide with an upper body Shapewear. If you wear blouses for work that are form fitting, a cami will slim you down and hug you in all the right places. Don’t worry though, you have tons of options so you don’t have to go for something that will constrain your breathing and make you faint. We no longer live during those times when women make the waist too small by binding them to unhealthy levels.
Lower Abdomen Shaper
If your problem areas are your lower abdomen and your rear, which is most probably way too big to fit into some modest clothing, you can go for a lower abdomen shaper. This is almost the same as your regular panties but most are seamless and it can smoothen out those areas for a more flattering figure. If you want to wear leggings over it, you don’t have to worry about panty lines at all. You can basically wear anything over it
So you want to shape up your whole body and you’re probably thinking of buying different pieces for every area. Don’t worry; you can simply go for a body suit. It’s a bit more like a leotard but you get a firm hold on your body. It’s not for everyday wear though but it’s great if you have a special occasion to go to and you want to look dashingly sexy in your dress. A body suit will shape up your upper body, your waist including your lower abdomen and your behind and your inner things.
