Style trends come and go. And, while some continue to make a lot of sense, we look back on others trying to understand how this or that was ever a thing. When it comes to shapewear, fajas – whatever you’d like to call them, it’s clear that these are smart fashion choices. Unlike some of the facepalm-worthy pieces we all have hiding in the depths of our closets; shapewear is timeless, it’s elegant, and it’s functional. 

Here’s why shapewear isn’t just a temporary craze, and why we think you should probably incorporate a few pieces into your attire.

 1. There’s Shapewear For EVERY-Body

Many women wear shapewear because they want to sculpt their bodies to show off certain parts, while concealing others. Other women just like the feeling of an undergarment that’s snug and supportive. Whether you’re a size zero or plus-sized curvy, one of the fantastic things about shapewear is that it’s worn by women of all shapes and sizes, and for many different reasons. These pieces empower you to embrace who you are, and be who you want to be. That’s one of the things we love most about this garb.      

2. Shapewear Can Be Really Relaxed or Super Sultry

The versatility of these kinds of undergarments is true perfection. It’s not often that you’re able to find a kind of clothing that can be worn both on your morning run, like this tank compression body suit; as well as underneath a cocktail dress for a night out, like this shapewear slip dress

In many ways, certain kinds of shapewear resemble activewear, a trend that sought to turn comfortable, sporty clothing into fashionable everyday attire – a trend that saw a 42 percent increase in total value from 2012-2019. And, many experts say that it’s more than just a fad. On the other hand, with the pandemic waning, and people venturing out of the house to wine and dine again, formal wear is also making a strong comeback. Either way, there are definitely a lot of shapewear options for you.     

3. Shapewear is a Post-Operation Wellness Must

While many types of shapewear aren’t necessarily worn for therapeutic purposes, some of these garments are essential for post-op body sculpting care. According to the 2020 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report, about 188,000 women in the US opted for liposuction, about 193,000 underwent breast augmentation, roughly 94,000 had a tummy tuck, and about 21,500 had butt augmentation. If you’re one of the many amazing women who’s had, or who’s thinking about having some work done, we firmly believe that you should do you. Whatever decision you make with the help of your doc, we’ve got your back, 100%.

4. Shapewear is Something You Can Wear Year-Round

If you’d like to get the most out of your shapewear by wearing it in both cold and warm weather, you absolutely can. Many of these undergarments are fit for all seasons, while some are best in certain situations. Thermal compression shapers use advanced technology that provide muscle and tissue support – heating you up when you need it most. Other body shapers focus more on breathability to keep you cool and fresh in the summer months. Basically, shapewear can seamlessly become a part of your wardrobe whether it’s January or July.
