Shapewear and Its Uses

Wearing shapewear has been a practice long before. I know because I see my mom use this back in the 80s or maybe it even started longer than that. After seeing Netflix’s Bridgerton, I think shapewear started with corsets and evolved from there. Women’s desire to have a good body shape hasn’t really disappeared all these years and what’s good is that shapewears have been changed for the better; better material, better comfort, better use.

Shapewear After Pregnancy

I have to admit I never used shapewear after pregnancy, but my mom who had a cesarean (C-section) birth, I remember she used to wear a post pregnancy shapewear to help slowly help flatten the tummy. I believe they are called postpartum belly bands. Postpartum belly bands, postpartum belly wraps and postpartum shapewear products are meant to be worn around the waist to help support your body after childbirth. They're usually made of adjustable elastic materials that cover your torso from ribs to hips

Shapewear During Workout

I used to go to the gym and I remember some women wearing shapewears during our aerobics class. I never really appreciated workout waist trainer for women then unlike now; the more I understand their purpose, the more I’m intrigued by it.  I really wished I could have used one then. If I did, then perhaps I could have had a flatter tummy by now. Here’s one the most common shapewear I see in gyms:


NeoSweat™ Firm Control Double Belts Waist Trainer

Shapewear for Plus Size Women

This is always the area where I would often look in a clothing website and it’s the same for shapewears. One of the my most favorite benefits from shapewears nowadays is the support it gives at the backs which helps ease back pain. This is one of the shapewears I personally like from the plus size shapewear section:


NeoSweat™ Firm Compression Sport Waist Trainer Vest


  • The zipper design for easy wear and tear, allow you to hide it and give you slimmer reinforcement support.
  • Three waistbands design can strengthen the control level and convenient for adjusting.
  • 9 steel bones can strengthen the shape effect.
  • Vest with wide straps can relieve back pain, reduce backpressure, and protect the back of the spine.
