As a wearer of Bali Intimates shapewear, I’m always sharing the wow factor that comes with wearing these pieces.  But sitting in the audience for the fashion show and in those girl-talk moments, I’ve heard some misinformation about shapewear.  Fortunately, after the Bali fashion show, celebrity stylist Jennifer Rade and blogger Afrobella did a Q & A with the audience.  And a few shapewear myths were debunked.

Myth: “Shapewear”  is code for girdle?

Truth: Absolutely not.  Girdles have boning -long verticle inserts sewn into them that squeeze you. The Bali Intimates Shapewear is a fabric infused with Lycra that targets specific areas adding control and support.  This is not your mother’s girdle.

Myth: Wearing shapewear says you’re not comfortable with who you are and misleads the man in your life? At some point you have to take it off.

Truth: Women wear shapewear for the same reason we wear bras. Support, style, and making you look fabulous in your clothes.

Myth: Shapewear is for overweight women.

Truth:  Not so. A smooth silhouette is attractive in every size.  The fabric of certain clothes will gather or pucker in some of the most un-flattering places.  Shapewear eliminates to keep checking, tugging, or pulling by keeping you tight and smooth, allowing you to move freely with confidence.

Myth: It’s OK to put my shapewear in the dryer.

Truth: The best way to care for your shapewear, is to handwash them in a delicate detergent and then lay flat or hang them to dry.  It extends the life of the fabric.

Myth: If I buy my shapewear in a size too small it will make me look even smaller.

Truth: Buy the size that you need. Buying shapewear that is too small buy even one size, defeats the purpose.  This is what gives you that sausage-casing look, where your body is squeezed in and you can see the lines of the shapewear.  Remember, your shapewear is designed to create a seamless silhouette-it shouldn’t be visible.

Ladies, have a great weekend.  Any shapewear or foundation questions, just ask.

    Thanks so much for this, RainyDayDiva and thank you, Afrobella! I got my first, official shapewear at Blogalicious (before that, I called them leotards, as I would wear them under my clothes sometimes, for a smooth fit) and I was and am sold! I’m glad you’re debunking the myths! xoxo

    @Patricia It really depends on where you need added control (thighs, tummy, etc) Bali has a size calculator on their site, where you can enter your measurements. And it always is best to get fitted. Personally, I really like the Torset, because I can wear my own bra. And there’s a high-waist thigh-control shaper–nice. But don’t underestimate a professional “fitting”; Let me know how it works for you!
