With the right shape and a sensible choice of outfits, dressing can become a lot more fun. And there a variety of options to choose from.
What Makes Quality Shapewear?
When you’re looking at a piece of shapewear, the first thing to look at is the material.
Most shapewear is made of nylon/spandex of material which is ideal for stretch, comfort, and durability during wear. These features make them great to help smooth out different areas of the body while still being comfortable. But you also want to make sure there is as much cotton fibers as possible to allow circulation and breathability.
The other most important factor of shapewear:
This will differ from manufacturer to manufacturer, but I can’t emphasize how important it is to look at the sizing chart and grabbing a tape measure. You do not something that will feel tight and constricting. First of all, it won’t be comfortable, but most importantly, it may cut off blood circulation if it’s too tight.
Our goal is comfort and slimming.
Last but not least is the design of the piece of shapewear.
