Shapewear is not what it used to be. These days, women expect a lot from their body shapers! Women want their shapewear to offer support, flatter their curves, and smooth away any bulges. They also want shapewear that looks nice - the kind of undergarment that they won't feel embarrassed about when they undress.
As shapewear becomes more and more mainstream, there are trends in shapewear, just as there are in fashion. Here are the top five shapewear trends for fall 2010:
Pretty and Sexy Shapewear
As we said above, these days shapewear is not an ugly undergarment that offers support but must be hidden at all costs! More and more body shapers actually look great and are just as sexy or pretty as any other lingerie item.
Wearing shapewear used to be pure torture. Not anymore! Women now demand comfort, and shapewear designers are happy to oblige. In addition to several enhancement levels, you can now choose shapewear in light, breathable fabrics. Even the light shapers still offer plenty of support and a marked improvement in your appearance.
Shapewear Has Entered Mainstream
Women used to hide the fact that they were wearing shapewear, but with more and more celebrities openly talking about wearing body shapers and recommending it, women now realize that there's nothing wrong with wearing a shaper. Just like wearing makeup to enhance your best facial features and camouflage small imperfections, a good body shaper allows you to do the same for your body - enhance the best and camouflage your problem areas.
While celebrities love and endorse shapewear, body shapers are not reserved for the rich and famous. With fabulous shapewear under $50, anyone can now wear a shaper. There's absolutely no need to pay outrageous prices to look good.
Shapewear for Men
Men want to look good too! Many men have specific problem areas just like women do, in most cases the stomach area and love handles. Shapewear for men targets these areas and helps men look markedly better wearing suits or casual clothing.
