Can You Wear Shapewear Every Day?

To dive right into the question, if you want to wear shapewear every day, then this is something that is perfectly acceptable. Shapewear has plenty of benefits that make it appealing to wear regularly – it’s comfortable, makes you look great, can go with plenty of different outfits, and there are endless styles to choose from. In this article, we are going to look more closely at how it can be worn each day and if there are any potential disadvantages to wearing it too much. Read on for more information.

Considerations When it Comes to Wearing Shapewear Every Day

Some shapewear is probably easier and better for you to wear each day, for numerous different reasons. Here are some of the things for you to think about when it comes to wearing shapewear on a regular basis:

  • Material – when it comes to material, you want to ensure that your body is not restricted. High quality brands should use the best materials that make pieces more suited to wearing every day. Make sure it’s not a material that will irritate your skin, especially if you have sensitivities.
  • Style – there are plenty of different shapewear styles available, so to get plenty of wear out of them you should go for cuts that you can see yourself getting a lot of use out of. Plainer styles could be preferable as they are more likely to be worn day or night. SKIMS shape wear, for example, offers numerous different styles, lengths, sizes and colors.
  • Fit (size and control) – you need to ensure you get the size that fits you perfectly. If it’s too small, it will prove to be tight and uncomfortable. If it’s too large, it won’t be sculpting you the way it’s supposed to, which defeats the object. 
  • Activity – think about what you do each day and how shapewear would work with your lifestyle. If you take part in gentle exercise, like yoga, then you could wear shapewear shorts or underwear to do so. They’re not specifically designed for exercise, but when it’s not too strenuous the support shapewear offers, as well as flexibility works well. Some shapewear pieces can even be worn as sleepwear, such as the bodysuits, as they can keep everything in place as you slumber. Then, you have the obvious more typical everyday wear, under your clothing.

Are There Potential Cons or Risks to Wearing Shapewear Every Day?

There are no major cons or risks to wearing shapewear daily, but there are a few things that you may want to keep in mind. Mentally, it could have an impact on you if you wear shapewear every single day, as it could distort your image of your body in your head. You’ve got to remember shapewear isn’t a permanent body fix (if that’s what you want it for). It’s just a temporary way of enhancing your figure.

So, to reiterate, shapewear is perfectly fine to be worn every day – you can have a different style or piece for each day of the week!
