What is Considered the Best Shapewear?

carola and teamShapewear is designed to fit any individual interested in this product, but what makes a certain brand of shapewear the best? Several factors set certain brands above the competition. These include shapewear that doesn’t irritate your skin, that accomplishes what you need and that makes you look and feel your best. Your Contour strives to meet those standards.

Shapewear has made its mark in society since the eighteenth century and is still as popular today as it was then. With celebrity endorsement, shapewear is a popular accessory to wear with any outfit for any occasion. As mentioned before, the best shapewear makes you feel as well as look good. Many first time shapewear buyers hold a common misconception that shapewear is supposed to only make you look good, but there will be discomfort. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth.

Shapewear “No-Nos”

Before purchasing shapewear, try on the product first to ensure that it functions properly. Here are some characteristics of malfunctioning shapewear:

  1. Rolls Down: Some brands of shapewear tend to roll down exposing skin that makes it appear like there are bulges under your clothing, ultimately adding problems when there were none. This is the number one complaint of poor-manufactured shapewear.
  2. Cuts Off Circulation: There are brands of shapewear that will slim you but cut off circulation at the same time. This makes it difficult to breathe and will truly bring you great discomfort.
  3. Shows Under Clothing: These usually include shapewear that consist of boning, zippers or seam lines in a place where they can be seen under clothing. Shapewear is supposed to appear non-existent under your clothing, which adds to your amazing look!

Thankfully, these types of shapewear malfunctions are decreasing due to the advancements in fabric technology, compression, breathability and aesthetics.
