Body Shaper

What is Body Shaper?

Body shapers—also known as shapewear—are pieces of clothing or undergarments that are designed specifically to smooth, shape, and slim your body. Most body shapers are supposed to be worn invisibly as a foundation underneath your clothes, while others can be worn discreetly on their own. Shapewear leggings for women and shaping tank tops are both good examples of body shapers that are meant to be seen.

Shapewear varies widely in the level of compression it provides; somebody shapers delivers maximum compression to effectively sculpt your figure, while others offer more gentle, natural-looking smoothing. A body shaper can refer to any piece of clothing or undergarment that has shaping properties to smooth or slim your figure.

Why Wear a Body Shaper?

There is a lot of misinformation out there about body shapers. Many people believe that body shapers damage women’s self-esteem and make them feel like they have to hide their curves in order to feel good about themselves. On the contrary, wearing a body shaper can actually increase your confidence and help you celebrate your body just the way it is. Shapewear is not designed to conceal your figure; it simply sculpts your natural curves to accentuate them and give them a smooth finish.

Other complaints about body shapers are that they are uncomfortable, feel restrictive, or look unnatural. Quality body shapers like the ones you’ll find in this collection can be very comfortable and should not restrict your breathing or range of motion in the slightest. Plus, the best body shapers remain totally invisible under even the tightest clothes to create a completely natural look.

Types of Body Shapers

There are many different types of body shapers. In this collection, you’ll find a top-quality selection of some of the most popular body shaper styles—including high- waisted panties, short shapers, and full-body shapers.

High-Waisted Panties

High-waisted panties are some of the most discreet, comfortable, and useful types of shapewear. Every woman should have at least one pair of high-waisted panties in her underwear drawer at home.

Most of the high-waisted panties in this collection are available in nude and neutral shades for a natural finish. They look just like normal panties, except their waistband is extra wide to provide shaping coverage for your tummy, waist, hips, and love handles. Also, many of the high-waisted panties in this collection double as both functional everyday underwear and sexy lingerie. You might not think shapewear can be sexy, but the flirty, feminine high-waisted panty shapers in this collection prove otherwise.

Short Body Shapers

Short shapers are designed to shape common areas of insecurity—including the tummy, waist, hips, love handles, backside, and thighs—without getting in the way of your outfit.

These discreet tummy shapers focus on slimming your midsection. The short shapers you’ll find in this collection double as rear-lifting shapewear; they simultaneously lift and smooth your backside and sculpt your thighs.

Full-Body Shapers

As their name suggests, full-body shapers are designed to shape your whole body instead of just narrowing in on one body part like your midsection or backside. These shapers offer a good amount of compression to sculpt your figure from the top of your midsection down to your mid-thighs.

Quality full-body shapers like the ones you’ll find in this collection don’t feel suffocating or restrictive, and their shaping properties are very effective at smoothing, slimming, and sculpting your figure. Many full-body shapewear pieces are zip-up body shapers, which offers a more comfortable fit and allows you to put the shaper on and take it off with ease. All of the full-body shapers in this collection are designed to remain invisible underneath even the tightest clothes for an impressively natural-looking finish.
