Girdles have been around for a long time, and they’ve never gone out of style. In the past, people would wear them to stay trim or even cinch in their waists before photo shoots. But today, celebrities like Beyoncé are wearing them too.
Why? Girdles help you shape your curves and create an hourglass figure! They’re also more comfortable than ever with some being made with latex-free material. With so many options on the market today—including shapers that come in plus sizes—there’s no reason not to own a girdle!
Benefits of Wearing Girdles
Women wear girdles to give them a slimmer look, define their waist and make the rest of their body curvy.
Most types of girdles help improve posture by holding up the stomach area (or the entire midsection). As such, most people who wear girdles have better posture than those that don’t.
Stand straight with your shoulders back and you can see this for yourself. A study shows that after wearing a girdle for just several days, there was an improvement in muscular tone of postural muscles.
Girdles are used for those who have lost weight and want to regain their looks back by helping them shape up again. They also help women to get a flatter stomach area after pregnancy.
Others wear girdles because they want to look slim, sexy and attractive.
Some people who wear girdles with rubber pants or something similar complain that it makes them perspire more than normal; however, we do not know if the increased amount of sweating is caused by wearing these garments, rather than thermal effects associated with increase in temperature within the rubberized outfits themselves (rubber has high insulation properties).
