Firm Body Shapers – 2 Steps to Find The Right Ones

Shapin... ups... :) Sharing the Love
Firm Body Shapers

Firm body shapers refer to the medium-high or strong compression shapewear. Firm compression is the second intensity level meaning that the shapewear will shape and slenderise the body by lifting where needed and emphasising your curves.

By combining the functionality of contemporary high-elasticity materials with sophisticated design elements, firm compression shapewear will instantly slim down the waist, flatten the tummy, slenderise hips and thighs or any other target area of yours depending on the type of shapewear you have chosen.

Firm Body Shapers – Slimming the Body Instantly

There are many types of firm compression shapewear so it is about defining the targets and focus areas to make sure the shapewear meets the expectations.

But before that, there is one important thing to mention that comes upfront to everything else.

The Most Important Thing When Shopping for Firm Body Shapers

When shopping for firm body shapers (and actually any shapewear), the most important thing is to get the right size and fit.

Proper fit and right size of the shapewear is a must. Otherwise, the shapewear will simply fail fulfilling its promises and your intentions.

Shapewear that is too big will do nothing… because it is too big with no possibility to do what it is intended to do.

Although downsizing could feel tempting, it won’t do any trick, other than pinching and squeezing all the wrong places, creating lumps and bumps and definitely defeating the whole concept of the body shaper as that. But above everything, it will inflict unnecessary pressure on your body and organs by increasing the risk of blood clots, tingling and numbness.

Body shaper should fit like a glove to perform its job in a proper manner. So before any purchase for shapewear is made, you should measure yourself and check the sizing chart to make sure the right size is ordered. If any doubts, better to re-check with the seller for their suggestions.

High-quality firm compression shapewear will always be comfortable, if it isn’t – then you should size it up.

Choosing the Right Style of The Body Shaper

Body shapers are proven to enhance and smooth out the figure where needed. Moreover, they create a perfect base layer for your clothing (especially the tight and form-fitting ones).

Choosing body shaper is like choosing real estate with the main name of the game being LOCATION. Not everyone needs or wishes for a house near the beach (or enhanced rear… or firmer thighs… or cinched waist) to be on cloud nine. So it is about understanding the spots of your body you feel insecure about to turn them into a comfort zone.

The shapewear market is thriving and offering a vast range of different firm body shapers targeting different areas of the body.

  1. This is good to know before shopping so that it’s easier to narrow down the choices to the right kind of body shaper needed for the outfit. A firm control camisole shapewear piece would be great for an upcoming formal dress event — do you have a favorite brand or two that has the best quality that you would recommend? Thanks so much for sharing what each type of body shaper can do!

    • Hey Aly

      I would actually recommend you considering either firm control slip shapewear or bodysuit shaper for a formal dress event. You are welcome to check out on backless slip shapewear – a perfect choice underneath formal or any dress – here I would recommend Fleexes Maidenform due to the great quality, performance and fit this brand is proven to offer.

      Other good choice would be bodysuit shapewear – I am investigating this topic now and already made a choice for myself – as soon as I receive it, I will test and review, and let you know here.

      Up to now my favourite brands are Gotoly and Maidenform – these are reasonably priced and of good quality. But, without doubt, I continue my path to testing the shapewear pieces to continue building my shapewear wardrobe and helping others do so, as well, by publishing the results of my investigations 🙂

      Happy shaping, Arta
