Shapewear has become widely talk about fad in 2019, but the question most ask is, Can Shapewear Reshape Your Body Permanently??
Getting and maintaining a flat stomach is difficult. It can be very strenuous physically and mentally and let’s be honest pretty draining over time. No matter if we’re wearing jeans, leggings, skirts, or a dress we all want to look and feel our best, especially when we’re attending an event where a lot of people will be present.
Many men and women alike have turned to shapewear to help and attain that desired look. Shapewear by definition is an undergarment which provides low, medium or high amounts of compression and holds in excess fat around your stomach, back, love handles, and abdominal area. The resulting factor is a few inches shaved away from these problem areas and a more desired look in your outfits.
The important thing to know and understand though is that shapewear isn't the sole factor in permanently flattening your stomach. It does, however, provide many more benefits than not and can help you in the following:
Shapewear Provides Instant Midsection Slimming
Have you ever sucked in your stomach before and had to hold it in? Well, shapewear can provide that instant slimming look without having to hassle with sucking in your stomach. The reason is that shapewear essentially mimics the effect of sucking in by flattening your tummy, abdominal area, and love handles, minus the constant stress of having to remember to remain sucked in.
Permanent Long Term Reshaping Goals
While you may have your long term goals such as getting to a certain weight or look shapewear can provide you instant slimming results.
Some Shapewear provides great all-day comfort with medium support while others provide very firm support and are great for wearing for a few hours on special occasions such as weddings, parties, big events, etc...
As they can help you fit pretty easily into any tight fitting or flowing dresses or skirts. No matter what your body type shapewear can help with a much more defined waistline.
Shapewear Provides More Confidence
Increased confidence is probably one of the main and most important benefits that shapewear provides. Have you ever heard of the terms of consumer confidence? Economic confidence, self-confidence? There is a reason why confidence is measured. For example, if consumer confidence is down people spend to save more and spend less
If our self-confidence is down we tend to stay in more, go out less, and it ends up affecting our social life. This could lead to less physical activity, eating more, not going out, and could lead to depression.
Something as simple as putting on shapewear can boost your self-confidence and give you that edge you need to feel your best. When you feel better about yourself it leads to a bunch of little actions that end up making you feel even better. You feel happier, you start eating better, exercising more, going out more, and radiating positive energy that is very attracting.
Increased posture is somewhat of a more unexpected benefit of wearing shapewear. Our customers adore this benefit and are extremely surprised at this discovery. This is especially true when it comes to wearing a waist trainer. The make of the waist and the compression it provides makes it to where your back to remains much straighter.
This helps you no matter whether you’re sitting, standing, or walking for extended periods of time. This is great if you have a job that requires you to sit at a desk all day as most women tend to slouch which can lead to back problems
The increased posture is great for your back and can prevent any future problems from arising. The other benefit increased posture provides is more a nonverbal communication. Simply put, just by walking straighter you give off a more confident look and this can send powerful nonverbal messages to everyone including yourself. Just by standing a tad bit taller than normal.
Shapers Can Help With Menstrual Cramps
It has been proven that shapewear does help to alleviate the pain of menstrual cramps. Not having to worry about experiencing pain while working or while on the go is a huge relief.
When wearing shapewear, waist trainers, or corsets, the framing puts pressure on the midsection including the peritoneal organs which help with uterine contractions. The pressure of this massively relieves pain in the midsection area.
Motivation To a Better and More Healthy Life
Let’s face it a massive hurdle to losing weight, exercising, and going to the gym is first gaining the motivation to start. Then even after we start we face the challenge of keeping the momentum going and remaining consistent.
This is especially true if you have a job, kids, or are in a relationship. How do you motivate yourself to find the time to get the body you want when you’re tired, time-deprived, extremely busy, and have other things on your mind?
It's difficult to begin making a change, especially a major one like diet and exercise. But the journey to a thousand steps begins with step one. And that's where wearing shapewear can make a huge difference. Many people have the same testimonials that when starting out they didn't make any lifestyle changes until they saw what shapewear did for them, and once they saw what they looked like, the compliments they got and could visualize what their bodies could look like, it gave them the motivation to start.
They started waking up earlier to go to the gym before work, finding the energy to go after work. Some got at home workout programs and incorporated that into their lives. They started to make meals in advance and change their diets. They started to make the time for themselves as a lot of women forget to find time for themselves as their so busy doing things for others.
But it all starts with something small and that small little thing leads to other changes in your life, and then you discover that a healthy lifestyle is just a part of your life and it becomes a routine.
Shapewear isn’t the sole way to permanently reshape your body but as you can see it is a little piece of the puzzle and can help you begin the process to a more permanent solution.
While yes it's definitely true shapewear can provide instantaneous results helping you slim down and elevating your figure, it can be much more powerful and provide a lot of benefits. You will start to notice more compliments, your friends and family will start making comments, and people close to you will notice the changes. Many of them will want to know your secret.
