What’s the difference between shapewear and bodywear?
Traditional shapewear was the go-to solution for event dressing - weddings, galas, balls and fancy dinners. Unfortunately, they are designed to compress and reshape your body into someone else’s ideal and are often uncomfortable to wear for longer than a few hours - maybe even less if eating or sitting are on the cards!
Bodywear is designed to accentuate your natural curves, not fit you into a mould. The firm fabrics often used in shapewear are replaced by intelligent knitting technology paired with refined yarns to create elasticity that balances “hold” with the organic movements of your body. The result, an undergarment that is perfect for everyday wear and virtually undetectable under clothes.
In short, traditional shapewear is more restrictive and compressing, while bodywear is supportive while still letting you breathe and move.
