The top 5 reasons why every woman should wear shapewear by Sarah Gerrish
Remember the famous song from “Annie”; you’re never fully dressed without a smile?
My version of that song is “you’re never fully dressed without shapewear”. I have been working in the fashion industry for over 8 years and I strongly believe that shapewear should be a part of every woman’s wardrobe. Here are my top 5 reasons why:
1) The biggest misconception of shapewear is that is reserved for people who are overweight. I completely disagree; I think women of all sizes can benefit from a little adjustment here and there. Clothes aren’t made as well as they used to be unless you can afford couture, so adding the right undergarments really allows the clothes you fit you properly.
2) Shapewear was created to solve problems, not create them. So make sure that you find shapewear that does its job but also that you’re comfortable in. If you look like a sausage casing chances are it’s too small. Thankfully there are so many shapewear options you can find the right style for your body type.
3) There is a reason that shapewear comes in multiple colors, nothing is more unsightly than seeing your shapewear sticking out underneath a dress. Unless that dress is black and so is the shapewear, then Voila! Do yourself a favor and invest in multiple colors for different outfits.
4.) Confidence is sexier than any clothes you can put on, and trust me when you wear the right shapewear you feel beyond confident. That goes for the right bra ladies, please invest in a good one!
5.) This last one is less of a reason and more of a tip, never let your significant other see you trying to wrestle yourself into or out of your shapewear. My husband knows that I wear shapewear all the time but that doesn’t mean he needs to see it. Don’t ruin the illusion, just discreetly change out of it and let it be your secret weapon.
