If visions of your Granma's girdle has put you off trying out shapewear, you may be pleasantly surprised by the options that are available now. Body shapers come in a wide variety of styles, fabrics and colors. If you're on the fence about trying a shaper, there are many ways they can help you out.
Warmth in Cold Months - In areas where the mercury drops into the frigid digits, a body briefer can help keep you warm without the bulk of traditional long underwear. Body briefers are made in a variety of materials, some of which are quite warm and can be great for those who live and work in cold climates.
Support - Anyone who has lost a significant amount of of weight can be left with loose skin that rubs and becomes uncomfortable, as can women with large breasts. A shaper can help hold everything in place and will allow you to exercise and lead an active life without discomfort. Shapers are also much more comfortable than medical wraps designed for the same purposes, so don't be afraid to experiment.
Smoothing Your Outline - If you have embarrassing bulges or loose skin from weight loss, a shaper can smooth your outline under your clothes and help them to fit better without painful rubbing or skin being caught up in the waistband.
Shaping clothing can help you in several ways. Whether you want to look better in your clothing, need support or are always feeling cold in winter, a shaper may be just what you need.
