Shapewear Covering The Tummy To The Midriff

Tummy To Midriff Shapewear CoverageShapewear covering the tummy to the midriff comes in the form of waist cinchers. They cover the bit I dislike most about my body. I know I should love my body for what it is, but sorry I don’t. In my slim teens and twenties I was pretty much straight up and down with no “in” bits to talk of. Now, since having a baby (ok stop blaming the baby,  far too many glasses of wine and bars of chocolate) I go out where I am supposed to go in, if you see what I mean. Fortunately, waist cinchers are the strongest style of shapewear available and (in my opinion) give you proper, jaw-dropping, yay I have a waist results!

Some things to think about when choosing this style of shapewear

  • Style. There are 2 main styles to choose from: the tube which you step in to and doesn’t have any fastenings; or the belt which you wrap around your middle. The tube is usually a lot less effective in pulling you in as it is usually seamless, made of compression fabric and not boned.
  • Fastenings. The belt style will usually have hooks and eyes to fasten it down the front. However, some also come with zip fastenings.
  • Boning. A lot of this style of shapewear is boned. This is what gives it a huge amount of strength (and therefore the power to change the shape of your body).
  • Length. If you are quite short in your body then you need to make sure that the sort you choose isn’t too long for you. If it is it will roll up at the bottom. In general, Esbelt tends to be long in the body than the Miraclesuit.
  • Heat. You will feel quite hot in this, so don’t even think about wearing it on an exotic holiday (unless you invite me)!
  • Food! Because this style of shapewear tends to be really really tight it is quite hard to pack away a nice big Sunday lunch. So don’t wear this style if you need to eat lots. However, it is perfect if you want to appear all lady-like and peck away at a little green salad!
  • Drink! As above. You are not going to be able to sink pints of lager but smaller sippy drinks will be fine.
