Shape Wear That Shapes You The Right Way

Some underwear, body shapers and pantyhose squeeze out more than they smooth out. Often, they actually create bumps and bulges that you don’t really have. The wrong underwear and foundation garments can create back-boobs, tummy rolls, muffin-tops, visible panty lines and other random bulges. These bumps and bulges make you look heavier and more out of shape than you really are.

If you wear “shape wear” (modern girdles), opt for smoothers instead of shapers. They have lighter control so they smooth rather than squeeze. You can even buy them one size "too big" so you get a smoothing effect rather than a squeezing effect.

If you want to smooth the waist or tummy area, choose the full body shaper or high-waist bike shorts that extend from the bottom bra band to mid-thigh. This style will smooth the entire torso without creating VPLs or the dreaded bulges at the waist. If you want to smooth just the hips and bottom, opt for the regular bike shorts or capri style shaper that extends from the waist to the mid thigh or calf.
