Tips for Using Shapewear

Shapewear is often used to give a slimmer appearance, but it can also be used to smooth out skin and eliminate lumps and bumps. Shapewear can be worn under any type of clothing from jeans to a formal gown.

Wear shapewear only when you need it. If you wear it all the time, your body will be forced into a position that is not natural. Wear shapewear only when it is needed for a special event or for everyday clothing.

Even if you have not lost weight yet, wearing the right foundation garments can make you look slimmer and trimmer and greatly improve your overall appearance. When choosing your foundation garments, be sure they fit well and are made of a high quality fabric that will not stretch or shrink when washed.

Choose your shapewear based on how much you need to shape or flatten certain areas of your body. Spanx are great for eliminating bulges and smoothing the stomach area. Girdles are good for slimming the midsection and creating an hourglass figure. Control briefs are great for lifting and shaping the rear end, while garter belts improve posture and lift the legs. Control bras offer both slimming and uplifting effects, while shaping panties give lift without sacrificing comfort or style. If you need to eliminate excessive thigh fat, choose control shorts or thigh slimmers instead of control bras or briefs.

To get the most benefit from shapewear, you should follow a few basic tips:

  1. Find the right size for your body type
  2. Choose shapewear with a wide waistband
  3. Choose good quality fabric to avoid snagging and pilling
  4. If a garment has an opening at the crotch, wear an undergarment over it to stop chafing
  5. Always take care when putting on shapewear to avoid pulling a muscle or getting stuck in the garment
  6. Follow garment care instructions carefully so you get the maximum life out of your shapewear

The whole idea of shapewear is to give you support where you need it, and this support can be a bit uncomfortable until you get used to wearing it.

Tightness: You may feel tightness around your legs and stomach when you first start wearing shapewear. This will go away after a while as your body gets used to having the extra layer on. In fact, most shapewear is meant to be worn under clothes so nobody will even know that you have it on except for you!

Breathability: When wearing shapewear, it is important to make sure that your skin is able to breathe. Many people make the mistake of thinking that they should wear tight-fitting shapewear all day long. However, this can cause sweating and discomfort during the day. It is best to wear shapewear only when you are going out or if it is needed for special occasions like an evening wedding or evening party.
