Want a modelesque physique without working for it? You are not the only one! When the models on those fancy magazine covers make themselves look toned using the right shapewear, why shouldn’t you? If Instagram filters save you from having ugly selfies, then shapewear is here to help you look toned and fit! Live out your inner Marilyn Monroe fantasy with the right shapewear!
Let’s take a look at these pointers for the correct shapewear for you.
Do we really need to remind you about the importance of knowing your body type? About 70% of your problems are automatically solved once you’re clear about your body type. You’ll know which body part you want to focus on—your bust, waist or hips—and will be able to accentuate your features accordingly. So read up and/or seek personal advice on whether you’re an apple, pear or an hourglass body type, and then head go shop!
Know your shapewear
First things first. Know the different types of shapewear available in stores today—broadly categorized into light-control, moderate-control, and firm-fit. While light-control is the most comfortable to wear (with the least compression), firm-fit is what you’ll need to tone down those extra layers of flab. Each type of shapewear serves a different purpose, while some may cinch, others may emphasize. Do your homework first!
Seek expert assistance
It’s okay to ask for help. You don’t have to feel shy about wanting to think of shapewear as something to be conscious about just because you’re opting for extra support over exercise because that isn’t the case. They way a concealer covers up your blemishes, shapewear helps conceal your loose ‘love’ handles. So, go to that store, a physical one (don’t buy it online if it’s your first time) and remember to always try before you buy!
Choose the right size
The right size is absolutely imperative! People often tend to opt for smaller sizes in order to look slimmer. They forget about the awkward bulges that appear later. Not only that, the constriction irritates their skin and leave them with rashes. So, in order to avoid all of that, measure yourself accurately, and measure again, if you think your body has gone through changes since your last purchase. No harm!
Many is good!
When it comes to shapewear, there’s no one-size-fits-all. Sooner or later, you’ll need a different one for a different outfit—thanks to the ever-changing fashion trends from bare backs to lace-ups. So invest in shapewear that accentuates your curves in all the right ways. Difficult? Hardly! For there’s shapewear specific to body parts to so you’d now be concentrating only on the problem areas. Sounds cool? It is! And hella practical too…whew!
Hopefully, this article would have helped you find the right type of shapewear. Happy shapewear hunting!
