Body Shaper tips
When buying a body shaper you should check if you should combine it with a separate bra. This is mentioned as 'WYOB' (wear your own bra). Size wise you'd better wear your regular size. Don't pick a size smaller as you might think this will make you look even more skinnier. This often makes you look the opposite and is not that comfortable.
