We all know that shapewear has been around for centuries. French aristocrats have been squeezing themselves into lace corsets and girdles as far back as the 1500’s. However, what once was a status symbol of beauty and wealth is now being worn by the everyday woman. Luckily for us, modern shapewear has become much more comfortable and way less restrictive.
Not All Shapewear is Created Equal
Shapewear is designed to smooth and contour the body, regardless of your body shape or size. But did you know that not all shapewear is created equal? There are different styles and types of body shapers, and certain brands may work better for different body types, so don’t just buy the shapewear on sale in the clearance aisle, make sure to buy the shapewear that’s right for you.
If you are a fit girl looking for shapewear, you should consider body shapers that provide only light to medium compression. You also want to look for styles that target specific areas of concern, such as smoothing out the hips and thighs and, of course, keeping the butt perky and lifted.
Some popular options of shapewear for fit girls are high-waisted bike shorts, bodysuits, and camisoles with built-in bras. Choosing a size that fits comfortably without creating any bulges or discomfort is the key. You can also look for options made from breathable materials to avoid feeling too hot, and always stick to stretchy, buttery fabrics so your shapewear stays snug without any discomfort.
Say Hello to Liftwear
Most women assume that shapewear benefits curvier women the most, as they have more to tuck-in and compress to create that hourglass shape. But what about the less curvy women? Do the fit girls get to enjoy the same results that shapewear brings?
At Perks, we believe that fit girls deserve the best shapewear that most suit their smaller body type. That’s why we’ve created what we call, “liftwear”, so girls with less-to-compress can focus more on getting that desirable lift in their butt. We don’t gatekeep either, our secret is all in our technical fit, which is specifically designed for slimmer figures. By incorporating, targeted compression, bonded side panels, and strategic gathering on the back, we’ve created an internal lift system that sculpts without squeezing and provides all the lift you need.
