We all struggle with unwanted fat, particularly women. No matter how many exercises you do targeting trouble areas like love handles and thighs, sometimes it seems it just won’t budge. But never fear, hopes of getting into that pencil skirt of skinny jeans are not lost. Shaping aids such as shapewear leggings and underwear smooth and tighten the appearance of your figure. Shapewear is cut and stitched densely so that that the fabrics become rigid. So, when worn the garment moulds to your body and redistributes the unwanted fat to provide a sleeker figure. Shapewear undergarments are particularly popular with plus size women, as they give the appearance of a slimmer frame and can make wearing tight fitting clothes easier and look better. There is an increasing number of women who choose to buy plus size shapewear online once they are familiar with a particular brand. Anti cellulite creams of quality can be more convenient and sometimes a cheaper option than buying from retailers.
Figure shaping undergarments are available in a range of styles including full body suits, half suits and shapewear leggings. Each style caters for a different need and so body shapes and problem areas should be considered before buying shapewear. Bodysuits offer full body slimming and can be purchased with built in bust support or without, depending of the style and cut of the clothes being put on top. Underwear options offer support around the stomach, slimming and smoothing problem areas around the hips. Half body options generally begin around the waist and end mid-thigh are the most popular options offering slimming for the waist and thighs. Half body shapewear is the most popular for outfits such a slim pencil skirts or fitted dresses. There are also slimming camisoles which provide support around the bust and are able to be worn in combination with other shapewear items.
Some are taking the shapewear trend further, by producing fat burning underwear. These garments are essentially shapewear that has been constructed to be rigid on the body, compressing the muscles and making them work harder. The idea is that you are able to burn calories while doing everyday activities like walking, or while at work. These are aimed at mainly those with a busy city lifestyle, as extra calories can be burnt while doing daily errands on foot. The calories burning underwear has not achieved success like traditional shapewear as of yet, comfort and expense are factors hindering the growth of this new undergarment. Regardless of size, shapewear can offer a streamlined figure, for a period of time. Even ‘slim’ women have problem areas and may want to enhance some areas whilst wearing particular outfits, and shapewear is perfect for this. Having the shape you want increases confidence and can even promote better posture. With all these benefits it is not hard to see why so many women are buying shapewear, particularly shapewear leggings online.
