Debunking The Common Myth About Shapewear


You know when you go to put on that favorite dress of yours and after it’s on you see every little imperfection? I know we’ve all been there, ladies.

I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve definitely invested in some shapewear pieces to help smooth out those “imperfections”. But I hated them. I couldn’t understand why anyone would want to wear these types of garments and feel uncomfortable. Personally, I would have rather lived with those mini rolls than be uncomfortable under it all.

And then I was introduced to CYSM’s Shapers product line.

This collection includes a variety of body-control garments that serve one or more figure-shaping and enhancing purposes. The best part is the cooling technology thanks to seaweed based fabrics (which are also antibacterial). This was probably the number one factor I took into account when partnering with CYSM. I was excited to get my shapewear products in and test them out…especially the Ultra Silhouette Body shaper. I was really curious to see how I would look and feel in a full body undergarment. As soon as I put it on, I instantly saw a more smoothed waistline and it helped give more definition to my hips (which I’m learning to embrace!). I was pleasantly surprised to see that it gave some definition to my booty without being ridiculously noticeable or overwhelming. I wore it underneath a more form-fitting dress for Matt’s cousin’s wedding and didn’t have any issue with comfort! Risky decision, but well-worth it!

You might be thinking: “Why is she showing this outfit for this type of collaboration?”

Would you believe me if I said these jeans were also considered shapewear? Well, you should. Because they are! Yep, CYSM makes denim designed to help you show off your booty – and there ain’t nothin’ wrong with that! They’re also super-high rise (with lots of stretch) so your tummy is flattened and your curves are accentuated. I really loved the hourglass shape I was given in these jeans, it helped me confidently show off my curves! These were super comfortable to wear! I had them on from 7AM (when I shot these photos before heading into the office) to 7PM (when I got home from work). Basically, who wouldn’t want these jeans? I loved the distressed pattern as well as the raw hem. So not only are these jeans comfortable, but they are also trendy!

Who would have thought shapewear would consist of denim? Not this girl!

I now have a completely different take on shapewear: IT’S OKAY TO WEAR IT. Hey, I’m all about body confidence, so if these stylish and simple products help boost my ego — I’m all in. So the next time you’re ashamed of wearing shapewear…CUT IT OUT. It’s not worth it — allow yourself to wear the products that create instant satisfaction, are comfortable to wear all day long, and give you that confidence you’re looking for!
