Despite the cute term “love handles”, no one loves them. Actually, love handles or muffin top, whatever you call it, causes frustration and feeling of embarrassment. Love handles are unwelcome and undesirable layers of the fat on sides of your waistlines. They make you look heavier, wider and bloated. They are caused by number of factors like stress, ageing, insufficient sleep, sedentary lifestyle and consuming more calories. The best ways to eliminate them are exercise and proper diet but these two ways require time and dedication. If you can’t wait for the effects of diet and exercise, then shapewear is the best way to hide those love handles and to appear slimmer.
Shapewears are very comfortable to wear and they can be worn as easily as a slip under all types of clothing. They are available in various shapes, styles and sizes. You have to first identify your trouble spots and then select the shapewear accordingly. Shapewears can smooth out or conceal those uneven sections around your body and instantaneously make you look & feel better in just about everything you wear. Shapewear can be easily purchased online but it is better to visit a store so that you can try on various brands and styles.
Shapewears are accessible in three different control levels: light, medium and firm. Light control shapewear smoothes out and shapes the figure and it is best for daily wear. Medium control shapewear is more supporting and define your figure without any unwanted jiggle. It is great for wearing with tighter fitting clothes. While firm one is the most powerful among all the shapewears. It lifts shape, smoothes out the figure as well as decreases your measurements and dress size.
