I often get asked the question “can wearing shapewear help you lose weight?
The answer is yes and no.
Let me explain what I mean:
The act of putting on shapewear and wearing it for a decent period of time WON’T do anything to your figure permanently. There is no way a piece of fabric can change the makeup of your body. What shapewear WILL DO is hopefully give you a bit of body confidence.
Don’t Underestimate Good Self-Esteem
Think about a time when you were feeling good in what you were wearing. You looked good, you felt happier, it was a nice boost to your self-esteem.
So you are less likely to over-eat, binge or any of the other many bad eating cycles lots of us fall into. You are more likely to go out and do something, which is far better for us physically than sitting in front of the telly eating crisps.
Fitting into nice clothes also helps us psychologically. It encourages us to want to fit into MORE nice clothes, it boosts our will power to lose weight, get fit, get active and get healthy.
So yes, shapewear is a helpful gadget and now you can enjoy it in the most beautiful prints and patterns. What are you still waiting for?
