Your Contour Shapewear: Upgrading performance with Compression Garments

Stretch! Bend! Sweat!

Let’s face it, it is disheartening when, after all the stretching, bending and sweating the result you see is unsatisfactory. Maybe, it is time to get help from a friend, the compression garment. So, what are compression garments? According to scienceforsports.com, “compression garments are tight, compressive forms of clothing, often made out of elastin and nylon, which are designed to enhance recovery”. In addition to that, experts say it could also enhance the performance of athletes and fitness aficionados. Socks, legs, sleeves and tights are just a few examples of compression garments. Often people undergoing body contouring procedures like liposuction and tummy tucks use compression garments, but nowadays they are becoming a ‘gym buddy’.

Here are five benefits of compression garments:

1. Better performance :

Muscle oxygenation is crucial when exercising. Fortunately, the heart and the blood get the job done. According to experts, using compression garments while exercising accelerates the oxygenation process. The faster the blood moves; the quicker for the muscle to receive oxygen and nutrients. Consequently, once muscles are oxygenated, the body performs up to par and for a longer period.

2. Improves recovery :

According to Exercise Physiologist and Nutritionist Dr. Ian Gillam, using compression garment is the closest to getting an iced bath. Gillam says, “There’s no doubt that it (compression garment) improves recovery for athletes and anybody that exercises intensely will get the same benefits because if they’re working really hard then it’s going to help them improve their recovery”. If it helps, why not try it, right?

3. Extra support :

When exercising, one cannot avoid moving vigorously. Unfortunately, excessive movement causes muscle pains or injuries. Ergo, wearing a compression garment is the answer. It compresses or tightens the muscles, thus stabilizing them. Performance gets boosted to a new level and muscle toning or building is also achieved faster.

4. Go for Cooler:

Compression garments are breathable garments due to its unique pattern as well as the materials used – nylon and spandex. The unique pattern minimizes moisture (sweat) from sticking to the body, making the garment lighter. All in all, this garment is far more superior to cotton made sports attire.

5. Lesser pain :

In doing exercise routines, pain is the name of the game. Some folks tend to give up on account of body aches. Compression garments like tights can help ease post-exercise aches. Exercise scientist Jessica Hills says, “When compression garments are worn during and after heavy exercise, they appear to reduce muscle soreness”. Furthermore, according to studies, compression garments can expedite the recovery time from muscle soreness. Keep in mind, the garment will only help ease the pain; muscle aches are always felt when the body moves a great deal.

Sometimes, improving the contour is a challenge. One needs discipline, determination as well as patience. For some, it’s a long and rocky path. Never give up! Remember what they say – no pain, no gain! Use effective tools – like compression garments – to achieve the dream.

Your Contour: Body Toning 101

Your Contour shapping 101 blog

Jennifer Lopez … David Beckham … Miranda Kerr … Bradley Cooper …

Aside from fame, what’s the common denominator of these stars? It boils down to two words – TONED BODIES! According to bodybuilding.com, one has a ‘toned’ body if it is firm with muscular definition and shape. Well, these guys have IT and they look great at any angle!

So, you want to have that ‘perfect’ contour too? Go for it! Keep in mind, these stars were NOT born with toned bodies, they worked hard to get in shape. And, if they can do it, we all can too!
So, let’s start from the top, shall we? Here are some ideas.

1. DIET

Obviously, eating the right food is on top of the list. There are many diet plans one can choose from these days. Some would try the low-carb diet or the low-fat diet, while others would go for vegetarian diets. We won’t recommend a specific method because there is no such thing as a ‘one-size fits all’ diet plan. It is best to go to medical doctors and ask them. Diet plan recommendations from doctors are safer because they study the medical condition of patients. Finally, when it comes to food, TV Chef /Author Julia Child has the best advice “Moderation. Small helpings. Sample a little bit of everything. These are the secrets of happiness and good health.”

2. EXERCISE

If you want to get that toned or sculpted body the natural way, then you don’t have a choice but to exercise. Here are some simple reminders:
• If you are not sure how to start, ask for some help. You can research credible websites or talk to gym trainers in your community.
• The fastest way to get that toned body is to sign up in a gym. Simply because they have the machines to ‘sculpt’ every each of your body. Of course, you can do the simple exercises like deep squats or swan dives at home too.

• If possible, invest in some exercise materials. Purchase 3-5 pound dumbbells, exercise mat, comfortable shoes and some exercise clothes.
• To make things fun, why not invite a friend to become your exercise/gym buddy? Time will move faster and, maybe, because of the friendly chats you won’t notice the ‘pain’!
• Exercise can give you more than a muscular shape. Bear in mind these words of Nelson Mandela, “I have always believed that exercise is the key not only to physical health, but to peace of mind as well.”

3. SURGERY

Sometimes, dieting and exercising isn’t enough to get that perfect ‘toned’ body. Body contouring surgery is another option to finally get rid of the excess fat and skin. There’s liposuction, Pec implants, tummy tuck, and body lift surgery. Clearly, good physical health is a must from candidates of surgeries.

4. SHAPEWEAR

You have done the dieting and the exercising, but the excess skin or fat still makes you conscious. So, what now? Well, if surgery is not an option, then go for the easy and safe one – use Shapewear garments! Don’t worry, Hollywood stars also use them. Shapewear products easily hides ‘excess stuff’ like flabby arms, love handles, back fat and muffin tops in a matter of seconds. And, best of all, there are Shapewear products for both women AND men! Purchase one today!
Remember, ‘toned’ bodies are not just for the rich and famous. We all can look great! Get going! The faster you start, the faster to flaunt your contour!

Your Contour: Three Reasons Why Men Should Use Shapewear

Your Contour Men Shapewear Blog
Shapewear for men?! Well, why not?

Today, the word “sexy” is used to describe both genders. Moreover, some would define sexy as acquiring hourglass shaped bodies and six-pack Abs. Perhaps that’s why many women swoon over the ‘yummylicous’ contour of Chris Hemsworth, Ryan Reynolds and David Beckham. They look so hunky, right?
On the other hand, what if it is just an ‘ordinary’ guy? That would mean a guy with some love handles or belly fat or maybe some flabby arms too? Truth be told, but some women don’t give these guys a second glance.

What’s the solution? A few would go to the extremes and go under the knife just to get the six-pack they are dreaming of. Some would be more health conscious, meaning they would go on a strict diet and exercise to look fit. Obviously, the second choice is better.

However, what if after the ‘transformation’ some flabs are still obvious? Well, that is when men have to ‘tuck it in’ using some Shapewear products!
To convince men to use it, here are some benefits:

1. Great shape in a second!

Putting on a Shapewear, like the Slimming Undershirt Body Shaper, will make flabs ‘disappear’. Thanks to the dual layer technology of this product, the chest, hip, back and stomach area will look ‘tucked in’! You will look slimmer and more athletic-looking in no time! No need to hold your breath just to get the flat tummy look. Just put the shaper on and do whatever you need to do.

2. Man Boobs,

be gone! According to the Cleveland Clinic Journal of Medicine, fifty percent of American men face the condition called gynecomastia or man boobs. To ‘solve’ the problem, some men will get medical treatments or may just altogether avoid using fitted shirts. Moreover, there are guys who would tape their ‘boobs’ to look more flat. According to experts, the condition is not harmful physically, but it can really cause low self-esteem. If the condition is a mild one, proper diet and daily exercise are the best solutions. In addition, while getting rid of man boobs, using a body shaper will help boost self- confidence.

3. Use it for any occasion!

Shapewear products are not just for special occasions like dates or big formal events. Looking good is achievable any time! For instance, use an Arm Shapewear Compression every day to make flabby arms ‘disappear’. You will get shapely arms to boost your self-esteem while flexing those muscles!

Remember, it is now widely accepted for men to use shapewear products.

They are not only for women.

According to makemeheal.com, even 52-year-old Brad Pitt is rumored to be using shapewear garment to ‘tuck in’ his midsection. Don’t hate your body when you know you can do something about it. Get rid of love handles or belly fat or flabby arms the easiest, safest and fastest way. Grab the right shapewear garment and look breathtaking always!

Your Contour: Shapewear Garments, the Real Deal!

Only plus size women use shapewear garments. True or False?

Obviously, the answer is false! Today, hourglass figured women also use shapewear. My friend Willow is a great example. She is 5 feet and 8 inches tall and has the ideal weight for her height. She looks like a runway model, but still she uses three different shapewear products to give her the extra ‘boost’. Willow loves the Firm Control Waist Cincher Powernet Shapewear, Bolero Short Sleeve Arm Shapewear and the Glamore Firm Control Slip Shapewear.

I guess the next question is – Why do hourglass shaped women still use these products? Let us count the ways!

1. They also want to smooth out their “baby” bulges

According to Willow, she may look sexy, but she still has a belly bulge she can’t get rid of. So, to make her look better and more confident, she decided to use the Waist Cincher Shapewear to “smooth things out”. Normally, she would pressure herself to diet and to do hundreds of crunches to remove love handles, but since she can use shapewear products to help her out she decided to just let go. She really loves the ‘instant magic’ of shapewear!

2. They also want to ‘hide’ their flabby arms

Never ever think that only plus size women have flabby arms. They also exist in women who are conquering the gym two or three times a week or women who diet religiously. Physically fit women, like Willow, can easily get rid of flabby arms by doing some arm exercises for a few weeks. However, what if you have a date tonight? You have the perfect blouse, but unfortunately it might expose some upper arm fat. Well, the arm shapewear is the best solution! Like Willow, you would love the feeling of tight upper arms.

3. They also want to slim down their curves

All women dress to impress. They want to sashay confidently without thinking of their belly bulge or love handles going haywire. Yes, believe it or not, women with hourglass shape also have these problems! A nice formal dress won’t fit perfectly if you have love handles in the midsection and back. Clothes that cling to a belly bulge or love handles are never flattering to your contour! The slip shapewear is the best weapon to smooth down some unwanted curves.

There you have it! Plus size women and hourglass shaped women BOTH use shapewear garments. It is their secret weapon to get that “perfect” contour! Even stars like Katy Perry, Kim Kardashian, Rihanna and Jennifer Lawrence use these undergarments to tighten their whole body and look fantastic during big events. So, don’t be disappointed or ashamed if you have a belly bulge with your contour. Forget about starving yourself too! If you want a better looking tummy, a nicely shaped midsection and back and a great tight upper arm in an instant, then grab a shapewear garment!
Yes, it IS that easy! Don’t waste your time! Order a shapewear today!

Your Contour Celebrity Shapewear blog

Celebrity in Shapewear..

Planning to enter the movie or fashion industry soon? Here is a tip for you!

Well, before divulging the big secret of the stars, do you know that celebrities and models deal with a certain gadget almost every day of their life? This ‘gadget’ may be work-related, but most of the time it’s not. Some celebrities or models may like the attention it’s giving them, some may not. What is definite is the feedback (positive or negative) they will get from the public. What is this gadget? Cameras!

When you are a movie star or a well-known fashion model, your privacy is almost nonexistent. Thanks to reporters and paparazzi with Hi-tech cameras, the world will see you in a matter of seconds. With just one click of their cameras, everyone will see your moves, style and fashion disasters!
Fortunately, celebrities and models have a secret weapon to even things out.

Are you ready for the tip?

To always look great, most celebrities and models use shapewear garments!

To make sure they stand out in red carpet events, big stars like Jennifer Lawrence, Kirsten Stewart, Nicole Scherzinger, Jamie Chung, Ariana Grande and a lot more ‘tuck’ their bodies using shapewear. They may have done some dieting and workouts before the big event, but to ensure they are ‘free’ from belly bulge or love handles, they use a shapewear under their expensive designer outfits. Remember the nude dress style presented by Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian and Rihanna a few years back? (Oh yes!!!) They sashayed excellently in the event because their ‘bulges’ were all smoothed out by shapewear garments! It’s like magic!

Moreover, actresses who are now mommies use shapewear to tighten things up too. Jennifer Alba admitted that after giving birth, she felt fat and was unhappy about it. So, she decided to use shapewear garments to help her get the hourglass figure back. Alba admitted she wore a double corset day and night for three months! Will she recommend it to new mommies? Well, not exactly. Alba also admitted, “It was sweaty, but worth it. It was brutal. It’s not for everyone.”

Oops, let’s not forget the goddess looking models. According to Tyra Banks, a former international supermodel, shapewear can “suck you up”. She added, “No matter what red carpet, I got ‘em on. I look like a granny before I put the dress on, but when I put on the dress, and it’s like ‘palow!”
Well, maybe the movie business and fashion industry is not very glamorous, right?

The bottom line is everyone has flaws! Celebrities and models are also ‘normal’ people with ‘normal’ problems like belly bulge or love handles! They just buy shapewear garments to deal with it. Moreover, shapewear garments are NOT for plus size women alone, but for hourglass shaped women as well.
No reporters and paparazzi to hound you? That’s okay. With or without them, if you have problems with your contour, do what the stars do! Grab a shapewear and let the magic (and selfie shots) begin!

Your Contour Shapewear and Body shapers

WOMEN SHOULD NEVER STOP LOOKING AWESOME!

Truth be told, there are women who tend to shy away from fashion after reaching a certain age. Aside from that, they also mention kids, work and weight gain as reasons for avoiding ‘dressing up’.
I understand these women because I was once like them. I simply use the most comfortable clothes I have – sweatshirt and denim – every day. Don’t get me wrong, I love fashion, but I don’t wear them.

Well, things can change, right?

When I started Your Contour Company, I decided to do two things. First, I made sure to update myself about fashion. I am very interested in clothes for curvy women, older women and new mommies. Second, I started wearing trendy clothes that would flatter my contour (thank goodness for shapewear!) and my age. I had to show other older women – married or not – that looking great is not a bad idea!

So, here are some general fashion tips for older women.

1. Evolve! IN now, OUT next month.

Fashion is never stagnant. So, know the latest trend and see if it is your style. Remember, you must also be comfortable with whatever you are wearing. Pick wisely!

2. Less is more!

When it comes to wearing accessories, some older women tend to go overboard. They want to use all their jewelries at the same time! Use just a few items and let them stand out!

3. Be Confident!

Sometimes, the real reason an older woman shy away from fashion is because of her bulges and love handles. She covers them up by using black or oversize clothing. Well, shapewear products are the best solution. They give you contour you never dream of. So, buy clothes that are flattering, use a shapewear undergarment and just feel confident!
Avoid using kids, time, bulges and love handles and even age as excuses to look great! You know you deserve to look fantastic! Remember, Fashion IS and WILL ALWAYS BE for everyone – YOUNG and … YOUNGER!

ShapewearDepending on where you live, you may have already busted out your spring wardrobe or you might still be fantasizing about warm temperatures to come. For many, warm weather clothing is more form fitting than cozy winter sweaters. But everyone has days when baggy pajamas sounds much more appealing than a fitted suit or dress. Bloating can often ruin how you feel in your favorite outfit and might also lower your self-confidence for the day.

But did you know that there are foods that will help ease your bloating? Take a pro-active approach to preventing bloating by incorporating these foods into your daily diet. And remember, Your Contour is here to help you look and feel your best. Our lines of body shapewear are both comfortable and fashionable looking. We carry both women’s and men’s shapewear to meet your most every need.

Water with Lemon: When your body retains water (i.e. start to bloat), it is doing so in order to avoid dehydration. Therefore, you should drink more fluids rather than cut back when you begin to feel bloated. Lemons are a natural diuretic and a gentle laxative when combined with warm water, thus helping to reduce the amount of salt that is retained in your body. Tip: Drink from the glass rather than a straw to avoid taking in excess air.

Celery: This veggie has a history of being used as a digestive aid for regulating bowel movements and controlling gas. The natural chemicals in celery are known to decrease your retention of fluids and help get rid of your body’s toxins. Other veggies to include in your meals are leafy greens, summer squash, parsley and cucumbers.

Watermelon: Not only is this juicy fruit incredibly refreshing on a hot day, watermelon also provides a great balance potassium and sodium, which is beneficial to controlling bloating.

Turmeric & Rosemary: Generally thought of as simply adding taste to a dish, turmeric and rosemary both hold properties that can help deflate your belly. Turmeric has long been used in Asia for inflammation and pain and is thought to help ease unsettled stomachs and reduce bloating. Rosemary has been utilized for a wide range of ailments, including gas and digestive troubles. Try incorporating a little spice or herb into your favorite meals!

Arm Shapewear

Let’s be honest; most of us aren’t in love with the appearance of our arms. The average woman, such as myself, would love to have Madonna’s perfectly sculpted arms. Not having access to a personal trainer nor the luxury of spending hours a week on arm exercises will most likely prevent my dream from becoming a reality.

This is why I founded Your Contour and started our popular line of stylish arm shapewear—to help individuals to look and feel their best while also boosting self-confidence.

However, as the end of winter quickly approaches, sleeveless shirts and dresses will be replacing sweaters in the closet. Consider taking up yoga classes in the coming months. Not only does yoga work to firm and tone many muscles throughout your body, many find the practice a wonderful stress relief that brings peace and calm to an otherwise hectic schedule.

Below are just some of the benefits of practicing yoga: 

  • Improves flexibility: The more you practice yoga, the more flexible you’ll become, which will translate over to your common aches and pains either lessoning or disappearing all together.
  • Improves posture: Poor posture can contribute to neck, back and other muscle and joint problems. Yoga strengthens muscles and helps you to become more aware of your body positioning.
  • Increases muscle strength: Specific yoga poses target different problem areas, building strength and toning muscles.
  • Decreases blood sugar: Yoga has been found to lower blood sugar in people with diabetes by decreasing cortisol and adrenaline levels, improving your sensitivity to insulin’s effects, and boosting weight loss.

As you begin strengthening your arms, remember that Your Contour is here for you! Available in up to 11 shades (dependent on style) that include black, nude, blue and lime, our long sleeve arm shapewear looks sleek and is comfortable to wear. Lace patterns create a more feminine shapewear that is playful with a little sass and a lot of comfort.
