Hi, I’m Ellie. Welcome to our shapewear site. Here is where you’ll find the answers to your style issues! Want a smaller waist? A bigger behind? A flatter tum? Thinner arms? The confidence to know you’ll look good in that dress? These are just some of the things bodyshapers and shapewear can provide.
How I Learned that Size Doesn’t Matter
I’ve been obese since childhood. In the last few decades, my weight has varied between 140 lbs and 250 lbs. Mixed into those years are two pregnancies and a long time breast-feeding, stretching and shrinking my body further. I usually weigh around 180 lbs these days, but it’s a constant struggle, as many readers will know.
Previously, I didn’t feel confident dressing at any size. Losing weight meant that the scales would look better but I had gained more loose skin! Putting on weight made me feel sad and anxious to cover up my body.
Looking back now, I wasted literally years dreading going to parties and special occasions. I would spend a lot of time and money on my hair, my make-up and my outfits but would still feel self-conscious about the ‘wobbly’ bits. I felt I would be judged on my appearance and this definitely cut my enjoyment of these events.
I remember being devastated by overhearing cruel comments in the ladies room or catching pitying stares.
I discovered shapewear over ten years ago. It was a revelation! I could look good at any size! The garments gave me the silhouette I wanted, boosted my confidence and made me look forward to going out. It made me much more likely to chat to people and to participate, rather than hide at the back of the crowd.
How to Look and Feel Good
Thankfully, there are now so many solutions available to us. No matter what shape you are, there’s shape wear to accentuate your great parts (we all have them) and hide your less great parts (we all have those too).
Never again worry that a bump is sticking out where it shouldn’t be! Shape wear will give you that added confidence to enjoy your favourite clothes, to look forward to special events, to feel good both inside and outside.
My Wish For You
I hope that anyone reading this will try shapewear and experience how wonderful it is. In a world where we are often judged by appearance, shapewear can give you peace of mind that you are looking your best.
