Sexy Shapewear

The benefits of wearing shapewear.

I was drinking my morning coffee this morning and watching Kathy Lee and Hoda on TV. They were discussing yesterday’s pajama party show and Kathy Lee shared how she had worn full-body shapewear under her pajamas. Hoda was incredulous, as was I. Was it really necessary to hold things in under baggy nightwear? Then it had me thinking. I’ve been blessed all my life with a naturally thin stature. But as much as I hate to admit it I’m getting older and things aren’t exactly positioned where they once were. Gravity is a cruel and heartless enemy. Not to mention that having three children has left my stomach muscles loose and nearly impossible to retighten. Why shouldn’t I get a little help from some gorgeous man-made material?

Millions of women (and some men) can't be wrong

Millions of women (and some men too) wear shapewear under their clothes. And why not? Who wouldn’t want to look instantly slim and trim without all the dieting and exercise? Many of us find ourselves invited to weddings and other events that call for figure flattering attire, but a tummy bulge can ruin even the most expensive formal wear. Eating carrot sticks and running miles on a treadmill isn’t nearly as appealing as taking mere minutes to put on a waist-smoothing piece of spandex. And, fortunately, shapewear has come a long way in recent years. It’s definitely not your grandmother’s girdle anymore.

Comfortable and still sexy

The combination of nylon and spandex is a match made in lingerie heaven. Nylon is comfortably breathable and a natural choice for undergarments. Spandex, a synthetic polymer, has been around since the late 50’s and is hailed for its amazing ability to stretch and conform while maintaining its tight-fitting shape. In fact spandex can stretch up to 610% more than its original length without breaking and then return back to its former length and shape once again. When you’re wearing a sexy, slinky black dress that’s very encouraging and comforting to be sure.

Who cares what's underneath the shapewear?

I’d be remise if I didn’t address the issue of what happens when the shapewear comes off. I’m married, my husband has already seen the good, the bad and the ugly parts of me and I’ve made peace with that. How anyone else wishes to deal with the unwrapping of the goods when the time comes is completely up to them. I’m just glad there’s a wide variety of colors and styles of shapewear available for me to keep my goods attractively concealed.

      As a woman who once adored, get married, and then gave birth, body shape will change according to age and our activities. If the aim is to create a good relations between them, so I'd say "its all fine".
