Fashion Shapewear

Shapewear has played a controversial role in the fashion industry ever since it became popular to wear due to celebrity endorsement. However, though the debate still exists, many individuals are thankful for it and its power to slim and tone problem areas.

Those that don’t use shapewear are skeptical as to if it really accomplishes to transform your body the way it claims to. These figure-flattering undergarments contain a few secrets that prove the science behind it is real. At Your Contour, we have provided answers to the most sought out questions about shapewear to confirm that it really works to make you look and feel great!

How does Shapewear Slim Down our Bodies?

Shapewear is designed to give the person modeling it a toned and skinny look. This is achieved by sewing the elastic or rigid fabrics together and cutting them into a pattern that nips and tucks the body. The slimming effects of shapewear also extend to encouraging good posture, confidence and your gait.

Does Shapewear Succeed in Slimming our Bodies?

This undergarment does succeed in slimming our bodies just by its design. The sewing and cutting of the fabric makes it easier for designers to pinpoint accuracy and create curves in the most ideal places. The fabrics used consist of a certain amount of control that makes the problem area smaller, and the body appear thinner and smoother.

Are there any Dangers to Wearing Shapewear?

There have been various reports that claim that one common danger of shapewear is constriction, followed by blood clots, acid reflex and breathing problems. However, this only happens if shapewear is not worn correctly.

Shapewear has been popular in the style of corsets since the turn of the century; the only downfall to it in those times was that beauty meant pain. Fortunately, with the advancement of technology, fabric, stitching and high-quality design, shapewear can be worn comfortably and without concern for health risks.

Where does Shapewear Store the Fat?

Many of our consumers have wondered this question at least once after experiencing the magic of our shapewear. Shapewear slims and tones by storing fat into spaces where muscles are compressed or into more desirable areas, such as the breasts and busts. It is engineered to funnel excess weight to help you appear slimmer by 1 to 2 inches.

A new year means a new you!

This is the perfect time of year to either renew old goals or begin new ones. At Your Contour, our goal is to provide you with firm and comfortable fitting shapewear to motivate you to stick with that exercise routine or diet plan.

Confidence is an admirable characteristic to possess when in the process of achieving your fitness goals. However, if problem areas are clouding your confidence, our shapewear can easily reveal it again by eliminating those areas with our guaranteed slimming effects.

Our Body Slimmers offers you the opportunity to see the final product of your hard work before any work is done. We have provided you with a list of the most common problem areas and which shapewear can give you that desired look.


The Back

The back is one of the most overlooked body parts because it’s not the first thing you see in the mirror. It is prone to lumps created by restrictive bras and clothing, hence developing back fat. One product that could help reduce the risk is our Glamore Body Briefer. It offers 360-degree shaping throughout your midsection and back.

The Glutes

Achieving a slimmer look could cause some concern for those who want to flaunt their assets. However, showing off your glutes is not an issue for Your Contour. Our Siluet Loto Boy Shaper slims your waist while accentuating your bottom. Its open back design lifts and rounds out your cheeks to give you that show stopper appearance.

The Hips

Depending what look you desire, you can either slim your hips or enhance them with shapewear. If you decide you would like to slim them, we recommend trying our High Waist Brief, and if you would like to accentuate them we recommend our Cyclone Lace  High Waist Brief.

The Legs

Shapely legs can give anyone a confident strut. Our High Waist Long Leg Slimmer is the perfect candidate for those who are looking for something to shape and tone their stomach, lower back, hips, rear, thighs and legs. Leg shapewear can give you a seamless look under any type of jeans or pants.

The Lower Abdomen

The lower abdomen is one of the most problematic areas of the body, solely because it’s hard to control and minimize (even with a proper diet and fitness routine). Typically, those that struggle with this area the most are postpartum women. For these individuals, Your Contour has a line of postpartum shapewear that can assist in smoothing and reducing the look of the midsection, while lifting up the breasts and lengthening the spine for a leaner look. Other shapewear that can help with this area are our top, body and bottom shapewear.

The Midsection

For mid section control, we recommend either our top or body shapewear, specifically our Firm Control Waist Cincher. These types of shapewear were manufactured to provide instant abdomen control and back support while reducing your waistline.

The Thighs

Thigh shapewear is a blessing in disguise, not only does it shape your upper legs but also your lower abdomen, hips and rear simultaneously. If you’re interested in finding a solution to this problem area, we recommend our High Waist Thigh Slimmer.

All Over

Body shapers are Hollywood’s little secret for how male and female celebrities stay so thin. These shapewear combat a multitude of problem areas all at once, solving all body insecurities in an instant. At Your Contour we offer our Passion Flower Lace High Waist Long Leg Slimmer to do the trick!
