Shapewear is a must-have in every woman’s wardrobe, but for those who might not own a pair, here’s 10 reasons why you should invest in shapewear:



Shapewear gives you a slimmer, streamlined silhouette so you can wear those tight-fitting dresses without having lumps and bumps

Never have a VPL again - there’s different styles of shapewear, from shorts to slips to help prevent this

If you’re dress shopping, whether it’s for your wedding day or just a night out with friends, take shapewear with you – it will help the outfit look more flattering and may even change the dress size you need

Celebrities are big fans of shapewear – Eva Longoria, Holly Willoughby, Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Abbey Clancy and Vogue Williams amongst some, all wear shapewear

Shapewear isn’t just about helping you portray a slimmer waistline and flatter stomach, it also helps clothes hang smoothly on your body without ruching up

Don’t let Bridget Jones put you off wearing shapewear as designs are constantly innovating. SPANX recently launched the Spotlight on Lace collection, a beautiful mix of bralets, bodysuits and high waisted pants featuring lace detail for a sexy look that offers light shaping too

Shapewear doesn’t stop with pants! Brands have been utilising the shaping technology within leggings, sports wear and jeans to give a super flattering style that hugs all the right places

Posture can also be improved from wearing shapewear as it supports the spine

If you’re pregnant shapewear can help to boost your growing shape without causing discomfort. SPANX have the Power Mama Maternity Mid-Thigh Shaper Shorts which comfortably shape the rear and thighs, whilst providing lower back support. The tummy panel grows as you do, with the soft yarns stretching to accommodate your burgeoning bump

Ultimately, shapewear helps you to feel more confident! It helps you to eliminate those pesky self-conscious feelings so you can enjoy yourself to the maximum
