A Beginners Guide To Shapewear

on October 24, 2020 / by

A foundation garment like shapewear gives one a confidence boost when it comes to tight-fitting clothes and slinky fabrics. It not only helps smooth and contour the silhouette but also goes a step further to accentuate the shape. However, choosing shapewear that's perfect for your body type and lifestyle can be tricky, especially with the numerous styles currently available.

So here are the talking points which will help you make sense of this closeted clothing type:

What is Shapewear and what is it made of?
Shapewear is an undergarment style that helps create a smooth silhouette and sculpt your figure, particularly when wearing figure-hugging outfits. It often referred to as 'Spanx' after one of the most popular brands on the market, although they are sold by countless fashion and lingerie labels.

Shapewear has a reputation for being uncomfortable due to its compressive nature, but luckily, thanks to advancements in fabric technology, things have changed in recent years. One thing that hasn't changed is the role of such undergarments, they are built to make your clothes fit better and improve your confidence, whether you wear them every day or on special occasions.

In the wholesale shapewear world, Shapewear is dominated by two textiles namely elastane (spandex) and polyamide (nylon) that highlight the magical relationship between compression and comfort. Styles with strategically placed seams and intricate panels offer noticeable lifting and shaping, from soft shaping to firm contouring.

Just as the name implies, full body shapers help sculpt the body contours, including the waist, hips and tummy. These bodysuits may also be extended with a panty up to the middle thigh for a more comprehensive look. While there are body shapers that hug the midsection as a whole, many may find this style too restrictive. The best full-body shaper is one that has a front panel which clearly pulls-in the concerned area.
Open-Bust Bodysuit
The open-bust bodysuit is not designed with a bra and is ideal for those who choose to pair it with their own intimates, such as bralettes or bras with greater support.

Waist Trainer Corset
A style borrowed from the Victorian era, a corset provides extreme compression in the mid-section to accentuate a slim waist. There are two types of corsets currently very popular, the waist cincher and trainer. 

High Waisted Butt Lifter Bottoms
A high waist bottom helps tackle three problem areas... it clinches the waist, tucks the tummy and snags the thighs.

So what kind of shapewear is the most versatile to own?
A full-body shapewear from HexinFashion is the best full-body shaper to opt for, as they are the most hard-working piece of the lot.
