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.

Plus, the best body shapers remain totally invisible under even the tightest clothes to create a completely natural look.
