Sometimes, beauty is pain, but our generation is lucky.

When comes to our bodies, it is not much of a secret that most people aren’t happy with the body that they have while others are euphoric with their bodies. This is where shapewear comes in. While it is known that shapewear help to make the body look slimmer much sexier, not much is known about how exactly the various kinds of shapewear makes a person’s body fat just ‘vanish’. There is also not a lot known to the consumer as to do when it comes to choosing the right size.

Back to Basics… Kinda…

Okay, so before we start talking about where the fat goes and the sizing measurements, let’s go back to what Shapewear is, what it is used for and what makes it unique over other types of undergarments that are available.

Shapewear is the body-slimming underwear that gives the body a much slimmer appearance in target areas such as the buttocks, breasts, hips, thighs and stomach. Of course, it will depend on the product you are using.

The uniqueness of what makes shapewear what it is is the way that the garments are created which can be considered, unlike any other undergarment that has ever been created in the history of undergarments. The clothes are made with special techniques that allow the material to ‘flatten’ the target areas of the body.

How does Shapewear make the Body appear Skinny as well as Sexy?

Okay, so now that we have rediscovered the basics, here is how Shapewear makes the body appear slimmer and sexier.

The reason the body looks thinner upon wearing shapewear boy shorts or body suits is that of the way that the material that is used in the manufacturing of the garment is itself created. The material is sewn or knitted together with elastic or fabrics that are rigid and are cut into a pattern when the material is worn which allows for the material to help give a target area a much slimmer appearance.

The fabric is also hosiery-style (as in stockings) and has seamless knitting that contributes to flatten the body’s curves when a product is worn on the body.

The Health Issues and Health Benefits of Shapewear

While a lot of reports say that Shapewear causes health issues such as acid reflux and blood clots, most experts say that Shapewear is safe to wear and that there is no need for alarm or fear that it will cause your body harm. Wearing the garments will be okay as long as the garments are worn for their intended purpose and the right size is chosen.

According to the experts that are all ‘for’ shapewear and them helping the average body woman in their quest to look good, say that shapewear, when properly can have significant health benefits. Saying this, they say that wearing shapewear actually can stimulate circulation and gives support to the muscles.

There are even specialised shapewear garments that can be worn during pregnancy that serve the same purpose as the mainstream clothes do but they support specific target areas during pregnancy. However, before such garments, it is advised that a GP is consulted beforehand.

Okay, so where exactly does all the Fat ‘disappear’ to when the Garment is being worn?

That is an excellent question. Here’s the answer to your question.

When a shapewear garment is worn on the body, the fat is moved into places on the body where the fat is compressed like that of muscles like the abs. In more basic terminology, the muscle is moved to places on the body that are more desirable and require more work to look good.

To add more attention to detail, shapewear helps to guide whatever excess weight you have to help give your body that much slimmer appearance that makes up about 1 or 2 inches of slimming. If you push your hands on your belly, you can press the fat around.

The additional bonus is that the fat can be used to give the body a sexier appearance around the breasts and buttock.

Scientific Facts

What type of people wear Shapewear?

Do you need an answer to that question? Well, okay then.

Where to find right size shapewear?

So, you can’t have shapewear if you don’t know where to find it and how to find the right size to fit your body.

You can find shapewear in any clothing store that sells underwear. The garments are also sized differently depending on what brand and what product you buy. If you are purchasing a shapewear bra for example from any shapewear shop, say B Free, your bra size will help determine what size to buy. If your bra size is one size, when you are buying Shapewear, be sure to buy the next size up because the Shapewear will be tighter on your body.

Shapewear Sizes will also come in anything from XS (extra small) to 3XL (3 extra-large) in products such as panties, leggings and bodysuits.

Moving house can be a nightmare if you are not well-prepared for it. There are so many things that could go wrong. The only way to avoid moving day hassle is to diligently plan and organise your move, ensuring that you minimise the possibility of any last-minute disasters. Let me help you plan your move by telling you about my hassle-free, smooth move. Moving, as it turns out, does not have to be a chaotic, messy affair. With some good planning and organising, you can turn your moving day from a horrible nightmare to a pleasant experience. I made sure everything was under control by writing down a long list of to-do things a month before the move. This helped me figure out the logistics and take care of other details such as packing supplies and such. Knowing what needs to be done is the first step toward a successful move. Once you’ve got that part sorted, you can move on to the actual moving process.

Here are ten tips to help you avoid moving day hassle:

1. Book a Moving Company in Advance

The earlier you book a moving company, the better. Always choose professional home removalists who are highly trained and always compare quotes and talk to the concerned people to finalise the details. Most moving companies have a tight schedule. So booking them in advance is the smart option.

2. Inform People About Your Move

It is very crucial to let people know about your move in advance. From your neighbors to the utility companies, schools, and post office, inform all the relevant people about your move. Avoid last-minute address change by informing them well in advance of your new address to ensure that no unnecessary confusion or complications arise at a later date.

3. Sort Out Your Things

One of the biggest chores when it comes to moving is sorting out your stuff. To make the process easier, go room-by-room, sorting out the stuff. Discard any items that you’ve been hoarding for long and make sure that you only retain things that you actually need. Moving is a great time to de-clutter your house, so make full use of this opportunity. Avoid wasting time getting nostalgic and reminiscing over items of sentimental value; you’ll be surprised at how much time can be wasted doing just that. So stick to your chore of sorting through your stuff and do not get side-tracked in any way.

4. Pack and Label the Boxes

Buy packing supplies and start packing up your things. Make sure you use a lot of tapes to secure the boxes and label each box as and when you finish packing it up, to avoid confusion later. Knowing what’s in each box will make unpacking and organising your things so much easier than if you had to haphazardly rummage through all the boxes to find things. Labelling boxes as fragile, when needed, will also let the movers know that they need to handle the box with care, to avoid damaging its contents.

5. Prepare a Moving-Day-Essentials-Box

This is a very handy tip. Prepare a box of things that you will need when you arrive at your new house. From a glass to your toiletries, phone charger, and night clothes, pack everything you’ll need. Trust me, not having to hunt at the end of the day for every little item that you need will make a world of difference.

6. Talk to The Movers

A week before scheduled moving day, you should call your movers to ensure that everything is in order. You don’t want any last-minute chaos as far as your moving company is concerned. If possible, have someone from the moving company come and have a look at the boxes and other stuff to be moved. It will give them a clear idea of what they’ll need and help them organise the move efficiently.

7. Schedule The Cleaners

If you are opting to have the house cleaned by a professional cleaning company, then scheduling them at the right time is a very important step. Ideally, schedule the cleaners to clean the new house (the one that you’re moving into) a day before the move, and the old house (the one that you’re leaving) a day after the move. This will ensure that there is no overlap between the cleaning and the moving process. There’s nothing worse than hurrying up your moving process because you’ve scheduled the cleaners to arrive, and don’t want to be in their way when they do.

8. Request Your Friend to Take Care of Your Kids/Pets

Have your friend or family take care of your kids and pets for the day. Having children and pets running around stacked boxes is a recipe for disaster. By leaving the children with a friend you can ensure that your kids are having a pleasant day, while you take care of the whole moving and organising process without any interruptions or distractions.

9. Figure Out the Parking

This is one of the most overlooked but very crucial part of the moving process. Figure out the parking for the moving vehicle both at your old place and the new one. Check with people to ensure that trucks and other big vehicles have somewhere to park to avoid last-minute panic. Arriving at your destination with all the boxes, only to realize that you’ve got nowhere to park can be a total bummer.

10. Get to Know Your Neighbors

One of the first things to do upon moving to a new place is to introduce yourself to your new neighbors. Let them know that you’re moving in and try to build a rapport with them. If it so happens that you later need a ladder or a hammer and can’t find one in your place, you can always pop over to your neighbor and borrow theirs.

Use these ten tips to help make your moving day a hassle-free experience. But remember, no matter how well you plan, there will always be some things that just don’t go your way. And in such instances, learn to go with the flow and figure things out instead of getting worked up over it.
