Answering your questions about Shapewear
Before we dive into this article, I’d like to talk about the certain misconceptions and misunderstandings that float around the topic of shapewear. If there are any unanswered questions that you have when it comes to Shapewear, this article will help answer some of those questions, or at least provide a better understanding towards wearing shapewear! 

In order to find out more about shapewear, I have chosen a few areas that tend to cause a general misunderstanding around the topic of shapewear. So, this is what we will look into today:
  • How do you use shapewear?
  • Does wearing shapewear help lose belly fat?
  • Is it okay to wear shapewear every day?
  • Do you wear a bra with a body shaper?
  • How tight should shapewear be?

How do you use shapewear?

This might seem like a basic question, but you’d be surprised, there are a lot of questions when it comes to how exactly shapewear is worn. So, to help answer this, let’s start by asking what are you dressing up for? The right choice of shapewear can set the tone for the entire outfit.

Furthermore, what areas would you like to highlight on your body figure? Knowing your natural shape and being familiar with your body will help in the selection process of picking out the most suitable shapewear for you.  In this post, we will provide tips and useful information that will essentially give you a better understanding of shapewear.

Does wearing shapewear help lose belly fat?

To cut straight to the point, wearing shapewear will not help you lose belly fat. Nonetheless, what it will do, is provide you with an extra boost of confidence that is usually overlooked. Seeing yourself wearing shapewear can give you that extra dose of confidence that can push you to work on your figure. Wearing shapewear does enhance your curves, flattens your stomach area and enriches your body figure in an encouraging way. 

Is it okay to wear shapewear every day?

To put things straight, you don’t have to be dressing up for a special event to experience the confidence that shapewear gives you. So, yes you can wear shapewear for everyday use. The trick is to know what shapewear is suitable for everyday use. If you would like to use shapewear on a daily basis, you want to avoid any shapewear that is ultra-firm. Ultra-firm shapewear would be suitable for special events as the shaping will hold your natural body in a firm manner. For everyday use, you would want to wear a light fibre material that is seamless and also has enhanced ventilation to maximise comfort.

Take a look at MAGIC’s Bamboo Bodysuit as an example. It ticks all the boxes for everyday use!

The Bamboo Bodysuit is from MAGIC’s Body-Hugging Bamboo collection, which is made from natural, green and eco-friendly Tanboocel Bamboo fibres. The unique properties of the bamboo fabric provide softness, breathable ventilation, and moisture absorbent features. Take a step forward in the right direction by wearing the Bamboo Bodysuit and doing good for the planet!

Do you wear a bra with a body shaper?

This entirely depends on what style shapewear you are wearing. If we are looking body shapewear, it can be highlighted that most bodysuits do not come with built in bust support. But this is no problem! You can simply wear your own bra along with the suit. To give you a better idea, let’s take a look at MAGIC’s ForEveryone Bodysuit.

The ForEveryone Bodysuit combines smooth fabrics and bonded panels for firm shaping in all the right places. The bodysuit has charming feel providing ultimate comfort and an invisible fit to top it off.

We mentioned previously that most bodysuits do not come with built in bust support, well, not here at MAGIC! We have the elegant Slim Body Shapewear that can be worn with or without a bra. How is this possible? Well, the Slim Body Shapewear has support panels that upkeep the bust area, allowing you to wear the shapewear in comfort and style!

The MAGIC Slim Body is a seamless body that has a graceful and corrective effect on the entire torso. The soft, seamless fabric is comfortable, breathable and entirely invisible under your outfit!

How tight should shapewear be?

This question can be difficult to answer, so to make this simple, the key is: comfort. Your shapewear should feel tight and secure, but at the same time, it should also be comfortable to breath and move around in. It’s no surprise that an excessively tight shapewear can cause a variety of problems such as shortness of breath, irritation and can even distress your digestive system. Wear shapewear with confidence and allow it to bring you poise. There is no reason for you to root discomfort by wearing shapewear that is too tight. Focus on your body and wear shapewear that fits just perfectly whilst allowing you to breath easily and look glamorous! 

All in all, we highly recommend wearing shapewear for all the right reasons! We certainly hope the above information provided some assistance and clearance about shapewear. Want to explore our elegant collection of shapewear? Have a look here!
