Body shapers are the perfect solution when you want to look slimmer or tighter when wearing specific garments. Think of (tight fitted) dresses or a tight shirt. There are different types of shapewear, a body shaper being one of them. A body shaper mainly focusses on your upper body.
What does a body shaper do?
A body shaper makes your upper body look slimmer. It makes your tummy look tighter and it corrects love-handles and visible bra lines on your back. A body shaper focusses on multiple areas: tummy, upper legs, thighs, hips, breasts, back and buttocks. So a body shaper tackles different areas!
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.
