You’d think that shapewear only came about in this day and age where being slim is an obsession, but it’s actually been around since the Ancient Greek times. Back then this type of clothing wasn’t so comfortable, but it most definitely did the trick to slim, tone and contour the body. From leather to heavy canvas and steel, shapewear had a glorious ride with women of all times. Thankfully now, they come in soft and comfortable material that shape, support and flatter body shapes.
Before I even got to know shapewear, I thought that it was simply for the plus size women. After all, people think that being thin is all that but there’s not really much curves to show off if you’re stick thin. Now a fan of it, I think it’s wonderful how there are so many different kinds of it for every kind of body shape. Shapewear actually comes as push up bras to camisoles to bodysuits. It’s amazing how there are so many options for women to complement what they’ve got.
Although it was invented from fashion trends, some women actually use it to feel more secure. The shapewear industry is growing every year because more and more women are feeling the need for it.
Some of the best brands of include Spanx, Johnny Lewis, Her Room, Hanes and Victoria’s Secret. The different types are bras, corsets, body suits, body briefs, control panty hose, girdles and some others. Shapewear is not limited to just the mid body undergarment. They come in light, medium, firm and extra firm types. Finding the right piece to wear with every clothing is a mission for every woman because we wouldn’t want to be caught dead with unflattering undergarments, do we?
Of all the brands, Spanx seems to be the most popular as it offers a wide range of shapewear that come in different shapes and sizes. Anyone can find something from their range and there are quite a bit of great reviews about the brand. I myself have tried it and it feels exquisitely flattering. Whatever clothing you’re donning, Spanx has the best that’s just right to make you look sexy but not uncomfortable. No wonder it’s known all over the world as well. They also have a line for men, just in case you’re wondering.
If it’s your first time to try out Spanx Shapwear, you can best try their starter kit that comes with high power, footless and sheer. You might find some other shapewear type and that’s fine too but the starter kit has the basics that are great for a start.
Another great brand for shapewear is Fit Britches which is based in the UK, this relatively new company is receiving rave reviews. They offer everything from skinny shorts and tops, to control leggings that are designed to tone you up.
If you admire celebrities like Adelle for always being fashionable and sexy amidst being on the plus size, you should know that secret lies within their undergarments. Let’s be honest, nobody is perfectly shaped no matter how rich and popular you are. It’s actually the shapewear that does the trick. You can wear it with evening gowns for special occasions but they are also great for everyday wear with jeans and t-shirt, casual dresses, business suits or skirts.
