What does the Body Shaper Actually Do?

Shapewear or body shaper and foundational garments can drastically change a person’s appearance in a blink of an eye. Your abdominal flab, big butt or fat thighs can “magically” disappear. Giving you a sleek silhouette without ever going to the gym. Who doesn’t want that, really?

So to elaborate on the definition, a body shaper is any piece of clothing you wear to give an illusion of a flatter and slimmer body. It is also called girdle, tights, body magic etc. It comes in different shapes, shades and sizes. Earlier body shapers came with iron which made it very painful as it keeps sticking into the body. The new body shapers come without iron and are more comfortable.

The one fact that is real about a body shaper is – they are guaranteed to give you a slimmer look wherever you need – temporarily!

Wondering how a body shaper functions? Well the science behind a body shaper is that when worn correctly. Body shapers simply move the fat into spaces where muscle is compressed. On the other hand, the fat is levelled into more desired areas for fat instead of simply sitting on your midsection. Body shapers do exactly what we have always wanted; it moves the fat into the places we want them! In addition, if worn correctly, it will help with posture correction. Which will also naturally help achieve that hour glass look.

The major benefits to wearing these specially designed body shaping undergarments are summarised as follows:

There is no question that wearing good quality shape wear can help to reduce your physical appearance.

Easy to achieve a better appearance

With people making up their mind whether they like you or not within the first few seconds of meeting you. Body shapers helps you build up the first impression, that counts for everything!


Compared to other weight loss or body toning solutions, shapewear can represent a considerable saving, most especially when compared to cosmetic surgery or high end diet programs.

Invisible beneath clothes

Thanks to the advanced, micro fibre construction of the Lycra-based fabric that makes up these undergarments, the resulting sheerness of the material makes them virtually invisible beneath clothing. That means you can wear body contouring garments and the only person that needs to know is you!

Compliments a weight loss diet and fitness program

Here is where shapewear scores highest as a way to get into the clothes you’ve been dreaming about wearing sooner rather than later. If it’s only an inch or two on your thighs and buttocks that are stopping you from putting on those designer jeans, a suitable shapewear undergarment can bridge that gap and make it possible to put them an and look great in them.

Let’s face it, you are probably already dieting to lose as much of the excess weight and fat that you are carrying in an attempt to be lighter and look slimmer. This can take several months of discipline and sacrifice, yet even after a lot of time has passed; you may still be a couple of inches and several pounds away from your targets. So, in between this time body shapers help you slip into your desired body hugging outfits. They are a temporary but surely the best solution until your dieting shows result.
