The Science Behind Shapewear

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.
