Shapewear is a type of undergarment that focuses on the compression of specific areas of the body. Different types of shapewear target different areas of the body, while there are also that target multiple areas. The best shapewear will smoothen and contour the parts of your body to give you a slender and proportionate figure by shifting lumps and bumps into spaces where the muscles are compressed.
With many selections of shapewear designed for women’s body sculpting in Singapore, it may be an overwhelming task to decide on which ones suit you best. Don’t fret; below we’ll share three helpful tips on how to choose the shapewear that is perfect for you.
Tip One: Know The Parts of Your Body You Want to Shape
While the various kinds of shapewear serve the same purpose in general, it’s essential to know which type of shapewear is suited to a particular area of the body. For example, a brassiere is designed specifically to boost the appearance of the bust area, while corsets and girdles for women are more suited to target the waist, hips, thighs, and bum.
It will help tremendously during the selection process if you know your body and the areas where shapewear will benefit the most. It may help you to list down the parts of your body where you feel shapewear can contour or smoothen. In this way, you’ll have an idea in mind on the type of shapewear you need, along with how you want that part of your body to be shaped.
Tip Two: The Right Size Matters
It’s always good to experiment with differently-sized shapewear to see which one fits you comfortably while still serving its purpose. But, what you should never do is to size down to appear a dress size smaller. The right shapewear for you should enhance your natural curves without causing you to compromise on breathability and comfort.
A suggested method is to try shapewear sizes that are the same as your regular-fit jeans as this would give you an idea of the comfort and compression you can wear. It helps if you measure the parts of your body that you’re getting shapewear from; if you’re getting a long girdle, measure your waist, hips, bum, and thighs to ensure that the girdle will fit snugly and provide adequate compression.
Tip Three: Choose The Style That Enhances Your Natural Figure
Women come from a variety of walks of life and have a range of figures for our bodies. One thing’s for sure; we’re all beautiful in our own ways. Which is why it’s important to select shapewear that complements our natural figure and enhances it. In general, women’s bodies fall into four categories: apple-shaped, pear-shaped, ruler-shaped, and hourglass-shaped. Different types of shapewear can be worn to beautify each shape without changing it at all.
For example, women with an hourglass-shaped figure tend to have the weight distributed fairly evenly around the body. In that case, they may choose to wear a bodysuit which provides a full-body smoothening and lift, enhancing your natural shape! Pear-shaped ladies, on the other hand, have wider hips and waist, so a waist slimmer or long girdle can be worn to target areas like the hips and thighs.
