Having a belly is more common than you think. Unfortunately, the belly / lower abdomen is undeniable to most stubborn part of our body.
Despite efforts to lose weight through regular exercises and dieting, the belly is always the hardest part of the body to slim down.
Many women became frustrated as this may mean that wearing tight-fitting outfit is out of the question. Women with obvious belly protrusion often resort to wearing baggy clothes in order to make their belly less prominent. The worst thing is, most of the time, these clothes are not flattering at all!
As such, shapewear for tummy which targets the waist area as well as the lower abdomen, became increasingly popular among women. It is a great instant solution to achieve a slimmer waistline and flatter lower abdomen.
Shapewear With Different Levels Of Control.
Modern shapewear comes in mainly three levels of control, namely, light control, medium control as well as maximum control. Women have the flexibility to choose the level of control depending on how flat they want their tummy to be.
Shapewear which offers lighter control tend to be more comfortable. However, you will not be able to achieve the level of flatness as compared to wearing one with more control. Therefore, it is up to you t to create a balance between comfort and control, and this balance varies with each individual.
Shapewear According To Occasion
If you intend to wear shapewear as an undergarment on a daily basis, shapewear with light or medium control will be more appropriate. This kind of shapewear provides comfort throughout the whole day. It also provides more flexibility and therefore, you will face fewer restrictions while performing your usual tasks as compared to wearing one with maximum control.
On the other hand, if you are intending to attend a special occasion such as dinner, you might prefer to wear a shapewear with maximum control in order to look your best. This is especially true if you are wearing outfits or gown with lighter fabric such as silk.
Wearing shapewear with maximum control will most likely be less comfortable than wearing one with lighter control, but what you will get is a much flatter tummy.
Therefore, if you are attending a special occasion which will only last for a few hours, do try maximum control shapewear for better slimming effect.
Shapewear Which Targets The Belly.
Today, there are many kinds of shapewear in the market. Fortunately, there are quite a lot of shapewear options for slimming the waistline and flattening lower abdomen.
For me, Shapewear Waist Cincher is the best option to effectively targeting the belly area.
Waist cincher starts from just below the busts down to the hips. It works by evenly distributing excess fats from the tummy area towards the busts and what you will get is a more obvious waistline and flatter tummy. Waist cincher is also rather effective in preventing bulge at the back.
Other types of shapewear which is effective in providing control at the belly area are the High Waisted ones.
High waisted shapewear will provide control over the belly as well as the sides around the belly area. Some high waisted shapewear comes with additional layers at the belly area. These additional layers will provide extra control which will lead to slimmer waistline as well as a flatter belly.
Choose High Waisted Thong if your intention is just to slim down the belly area. If you are interested to extend control below the belly, try the high waisted shorts.
High Waisted Shorts extends all the way to the thighs. It provides shaping for the hips, providing lift to the butt as well as shaping the upper part of the thighs. The effect is a slimmer and natural look from above the waist level up to the thighs.
If you will be wearing a skirt, do opt for Shapewear Slip. A Shapewear Slip is in the form of a mini-skirt. Therefore, it is most suitable to wear under skirts or dresses.
Do choose one which is high waisted for more control. A High Waisted Shapewear Slip extends from just below the busts to below the hips. As control starts from as high as below the busts, a smoother and more natural look can be achieved.
The Importance Of Choosing The Right Shapewear.
No matter which type of shapewear you choose, it is vital to choose one which is your true size. Some women choose to wear slightly smaller size to achieve a slimmer waist and flatter tummy.
This is really not recommended. Besides the discomfort arising from wearing smaller size, the fats from the belly might be pushed to some other part of the belly and cause unwanted bulges. This is really not what we want to achieve from wearing shapewear.
Wearing a shapewear which is too tight will also cause the shapewear to roll down easily. It can be a nuisance especially when you are outside. I definitely do not want to keep going into the ladies to adjust my shapewear!
As opposed to the above, although rare, there are some women who choose to wear shapewear which is one size larger than their true size. This could be due to the fact that they feel warm and constricted if they wear their true size.
Wearing a larger size can cause the shapewear to shift its position easily. This really defeats the purpose of wearing shapewear. Moreover, in order to achieve a flatter tummy, some level of constriction is unavoidable.
Fortunately, most modern shapewear are made of materials which are more airy. Many women find wearing shapewear rather comfortable. With this, wearing a shapewear of the right size is no longer a problem.
Most of the manufacturers’ websites do provide instructions on how to choose the right size.
There are various options of tummy control shapewear.
However, it is important to note that while shapewear does flatten the belly, it might not necessary give you a totally flattened tummy. Of course, wearing shapewear with more control will produce the effect of a flatter belly.
