Shapewear isn’t something most people think about, but it’s a significant component of the lingerie business.
It’s a common misperception that it’s only for folks who want to thin down. Sure, that’s a big reason to buy it, and it seems to be the only thing shapewear companies advertise, but there are other reasons to think about it. With the emergence of form-fitting, ‘bodycon’ design, there has also been a need for invisible underwear – a demand that normal lingerie, with all of its seams and hardware, just cannot meet. Shapewear has the advantage of being invisible, smoothing away not only lumps and bumps but also obvious knicker lines and the ridge of a bra band.
Here are the most common types of body shaper and their benefits:
Post-Surgery Abdominal Board:
Due to its comfort, security, and style, the abdomen board after lipo is perfect for daily usage and post-surgery, assisting in the recovery phase of liposuction or stomach tuck procedures. It’s undetectable from any angle and the best of buddies for your post-surgery recovery.
After-pregnancy shapewear is fantastic. You can use the shapewear daily, in any weather, and especially for special occasions such as weddings, the gymnasium, or a sport. You can wear it during the day or all night. This is the perfect waist trainer for plus-size women.
These are undergarments or a thong that is above on the torso than normal. They can go as low as underneath the navel, smoothing only your lower stomach or all the upwards from to the bra line. Shaping undergarments that touch your ribcage may feature clips to secure them to your bra, preventing them from rolling down.
A bodysuit blends all of the flattening benefits of shaping lower with more back coverage, eliminating any surface roughness between the bottom of your bra and the top of the short. This is the choice for you if you desire maximal all-over shaping! You have three choices for the boob area: constriction, built-in cups, or open-busted to wear with your own bra. The third variety is ideal if you have a difficult bra size or if your dress has a low-cut neck, allowing you to use a plunging bra with the cupless suit.
If you merely want to contour your upper body, a shaping camisole or tank top is a good option. Those will have the similar powerful-stretch fabric at the bust as it does on the stomach and waistline, making them comfortable enough to work without a bra for many individuals. However, if you prefer, you can wear a shaping cami over a bra, which has the extra benefit of hiding apparent bra seams for smooth look undergarments.
Body shaping shorts:
These, like the shorts above, tend to have a high waistband that shapes the stomach, waist, and sometimes even the ribs, but they also slim your thigh. They also have another advantage: if you struggle from thigh chafe in hot weather, these tight-fitting shorts can actually assist. Even if you don’t care about reshaping your thighs or reducing chafe, shape shorts may be a nice alternative to consider if you’re wearing anything snugly and want to smooth your stomach while also eliminating VPL but don’t like thongs.
Women’s shapewear is something that has become a must-have item in the wardrobe in recent years. It has tried to carve out a distinct place in every woman’s wardrobe throughout time. Shapewear may completely improve your appearance and increase your confidence, whether for a party, the office, or just a day out with friends.
