How to Choose Shapewear

Shapewear can make you look sleeker and slimmer in any type of clothing from cocktail dresses to jeans. It is an undergarment that alters the body shape to achieve a more tone and fashionable figure. Other names for shapewear are foundation garment and shaping undergarments. The function of foundation garment is to control or smooth a bodily feature. It works similar to a padded bra. However, there are certain factors to consider when choosing shaping undergarments.

Foundation garments are comfortable when worn properly. There are different types from ultra to light slimming. You do not have to get body wear that completely changes your entire shape. If you have a stomach and want to hide that area, then you can buy foundation garments to hide just that area. There are a variety of foundation garments available to target certain areas, such as thighs, stomach, butt, or a combination.

Get the Right Fit

Some women try to buy a size down to add more firmness, but it has the opposite effect. When buying shaping undergarments that are too small, they can make you look bigger and uncomfortable because it causes bulges. Shaping undergarments that are too small can also cause health problems. You are taking the risk of compressing nerves and organs when wearing tight garments. Most people can find the right size by measuring the waist and hip.

Build a Complete Wardrobe

Building a shapewear wardrobe is similar to building a regular outfit. It is important to start with the basics and add specialized pieces at a later time. If you are looking for flexibility, then you want to choose pieces that are close to your skin tone. Tights are a good starting point and can slim the lower body, such as waist, hips, rear, thighs and legs. They can also smooth out panty lines and have styles that enhance the butt. You can continue to add pieces until you have a complete shapewear outfit.

Pregnancy

Special maternity shaping undergarments are available to help with varicose veins. It also provides support with lifting the uterus off the cervix and alleviates pain. If you are comfortable with wearing shaping undergarments, then it should not pose a threat. However, you might want to check with your gynecologist to make sure that you can wear it.

It is a good idea to develop a collection of garments so that they can fit with more than one outfit. There are a variety of styles and sizes available to fit most body types. If you want to look sleeker and slimmer, then shapewear can help with achieving that look.
