We can think about the difference between underwire and wireless bras like the difference between wearing shoes and socks. In shoes, your feet form to the shape of the shoes just as breasts do in underwire bras. In contrast, socks primarily form to the shape of your feet like breasts do in wire free bras. Let’s compare and contrast these two bra styles.
What are the Pros and Cons of each style?
*creates a beautiful breast shape
*separates the breasts for good cleavage
*strong and requires less breast coverage for good support
*very easy to find – large variety of styles, sizes and colors on the market
*Can be uncomfortable if the fit is not correct
*Can effect healing negatively if post-surgery
*some studies show underwire can block lymph nodes if too tight
*more forgiving fit – you don’t need an exact size as fit is less exact
*excellent option for pregnant or nursing women as breast shape/size can change quickly
*very comfortable since they are made of fabric only
*breasts may appear less lifted and defined
*there is usually more coverage in the center panel sometimes breasts may not be as defined
*not as many options on the market for wireless bras compared to underwire
To wear wire or not to wear wire…the decision is really up to you. Though wireless bras and underwire bras each have their own benefits, one style isn’t necessarily better than the other. It’s all about personal preference. You may choose to wear a wireless bra while running errands on the weekend or lounging at home giving you comfort and a casual look. For a more formal or fitted outfit, you may choose an underwire bra for a sleeker, more defined look.
You may want to own a variety of styles in each category to coincide with your daily activities and wardrobe needs. So don’t feel you have to pick a side and stick to it. Mixing it up is highly recommended. Have both styles in your lingerie drawer and enjoy the freedom of having both!
Do you have a favorite pair of pants that no longer fit because of your extra tummy fat? Is your tummy stopping you from wearing a slim fitting dress? Well, there’s an easy solution! How about shapewear? With shapewear, you will have no problem putting on your favorite pair of pants or being uncomfortable in a tight fitting dress. Shapewear will change everything about the way you feel and your confidence in clothing.
Shapewear comes in a variety of different styles that allow you to choose the option of what body part you want to support. Here are some areas of the body that shapewear targets:
● Tummy: helps to smooth the tummy and offers tummy control
● Waist: helps to smooth and contours curves in the waist
● Hips: offers support to the hips and the tummy
● Thighs: offers thigh shaping and also assists with tummy control
● Bust: these pieces of shapewear help to enhance the bust area
● Body: this type of shapewear offers a full coverage for the whole body
Shapewear is not as easy as just simply choosing the area of the body you want to target. It is also very important to consider measurements. It is quite common for people to believe that the tighter the shapewear, the slimmer they will appear. This is actually not the case. If shapewear is too tight, it will start to bulge under clothing; if shapewear is too large, it can be quite noticeable and not properly perform its function.
In this case, it is extremely important to take measurements for your shapewear. If you are close to a store, it is a good idea to ask if they will take measurements for you. If not, taking shapewear measurements is quite simple.
● First, you want to grab a tape measure.
● There are two areas of the body that you are looking to measure: your waist and your hips.
● Start off by wrapping the measuring tape around your waist area without cinching.
● Write down the number that you get on the tape measure and re-measure to make sure you get the same measurement twice.
● Next, wrap the tape measure around the fullest part of your hips. Make sure the tape measure is snug around the hips and then record the number.
● Below is a chart that can help you determine your shapewear size:
Now that you have your measurements, bring them into the local shapewear store and get a piece of shapewear for you! You will not be disappointed!
A good night’s sleep begins with the perfect sleepwear. How relaxing would it be to lay in your bed wearing comfortable sleepwear? Each person always has that one go-to pair of sleepwear that provides them with breathable material and the freedom to move around and rest. The type and quality of the material plays a huge role in the best sleepwear for sweet dreams. Below are some materials that experts believe are the best fabrics for a good night’s sleep.
Silk is one of the best fabrics to provide you with a great night’s sleep. It is one of the best because it has the ability to regulate temperature, hot or cold. Silk contains many amino acids that create moisture absorption so that your skin stays at a perfect humidity level. It will leave the skin feeling replenished, healthy, and glowing. The only con of silk sleepwear is it can be very pricey. But why not treat yourself to a good night’s sleep? It’s definitely worth it!
Flannel is a warm and soft material that will leave you feeling cozy and relaxed. If it is cold outside, then flannel is a great choice for those frigid climates. If you sweat at night and don’t like wearing warm sleepwear pieces to bed, then refrain from a flannel pair!
This is a good option for those who tend to sweat during the night and get really hot when they sleep. This fabric will help to regulate body temperature and reduce moisture build up.
This is one that is not as common, yet it’s great for warmer climates. Bamboo is made of natural material that is breathable and reduces moisture build up.
All of these fabulous sleepwear fabrics come in many different types. Whether you want a nightgown, a button up/long pant set, shorts, capris or others is totally up to you. It is the fabric that will make the difference and provide you with a great night’s sleep!
Shapewear is becoming a very popular piece of clothing item in the fashion industry. What used to be popular only in the past is now making its reappearance and taking up room on the shelves in many stores. Since shapewear is just regaining popularity, there are many people that have reoccurring questions about it. Some people may feel a little bit awkward and self-conscious about asking questions, but in reality, there is no such thing as a silly shapewear question. This article provides an effort to help answer some of the most common and uneasy shapewear questions.
Q: Is shapewear comfortable?
A: Yes, shapewear is comfortable because it’s supposed to be. To ensure that your shapewear is comfortable, it is very important to get the right size. If you wear shapewear that is perfect size (not too big, not too small), you should be comfortable and able to carry on your daily tasks with no issues. There is also the choice of different control levels of shapewear. Whether you like it very tight or very loose, the right size will be the most comfortable.
Q: If I choose shapewear that is small on me, will it make me look thinner?
A: This is a common thought from many people, but in reality, the answer is absolutely not! If you wear shapewear that is too small, you will feel very uncomfortable and it will result in bulges under your clothing.
Q: Should underwear be worn with shapewear?
A: Yes, underwear should be worn with shapewear. The only exception comes when a shapewear piece is specifically designed to act as underwear.
Q: Is it easy to pee while wearing shapewear?
A: Yes, you should be able to use the washroom with no problem. Some shapewear garments have a crotch opening that makes it easy to open up when you need to. Some garments you will have to pull down to use the washroom. Make sure you are comfortable in doing so before you wear your piece of shapewear out in public.
Q: Can you sleep in your shapewear?
A: It wouldn’t hurt to sleep in shapewear, but I would advise to not make a habit of it. It is good to give your body some rest while you sleep. You want to make sure you are completely comfortable. While there are no health risks for sleeping in shapewear, double check with your doctor.
This article covered some of the most common shapewear questions. If you have any remaining questions, feel free to ask a sales specialist or even pose your question in an online forum. Remember, no shapewear question is a silly question!

A Long flight implies a carefully packed travel bag. In addition to hygiene supplies, there must be, at minimum, a set of medicines and a moisturizing cream, but also the most comfortable clothing, which will still feel good after sitting in a chair for ten hours.
When preparing for a trip, it is worth thinking carefully about how to dress. During a long flight, skinny jeans, trousers or shorts, and tight jackets are not the best choice. Prefer soft, loose clothing made from natural fabrics. The traveler’s outfit should be comfortable and practical. In this case, pajamas, which have long stopped being just-for-home clothes, soft slippers, and warm cardigans come to the rescue. It’s also worth remembering a blanket and a mask for sleep: this will help create at least some kind of comfort zone and help you get enough sleep, regardless of the time of day.
Also, before traveling think about the underwear you are going to put on. Your underwear must be comfortable. Wear a bra and panties made of natural fabrics. A small kit that includes reusable underwear, fresh wipe and a panty liner would be ideal for short and long flights (try: Panty Fresh Kit).
Comfortable shoes are especially important in flight. Because of the pressure change, your veins are under severe pressure. Uncomfortable shoes, fettering feet, straps, pulling the shin – all this is extremely harmful. Tired legs will ache and swell. You can help your veins by wearing special anti-varicose compression socks before the flight – they are produced specifically for travelers and sold in stores at the airport.
Pregnant women and people with problematic veins are especially advised to wear these special compression stockings, pantyhose, and socks. But in fact, they are useful not only for those who have health problems, but also for those who plan a long flight or just fly often. Thanks to them, the veins are protected from stretching, twisting and other deformations. Such socks or pantyhose give the walls of the vessels additional support, improving blood circulation in the legs, helping to relieve fatigue and reduce edema. They also reduce the risk of deep vein thrombosis of the lower extremities (DVT) and other unpleasant diseases of the veins.
When you start a long trip, choose natural, “breathing” fabrics for your clothes. When it is hot they feel cooler, and when it’s cool, warmer. In addition, clothes made from synthetic fabrics will make you sweat more, and you will feel start feeling “dirty” sooner. This is especially noticeable during long flights.
Remember that improperly chosen clothing for the flight threatens blood circulation, which can lead to edema, headaches, and poor health after the flight, and may even lead to longer and more severe acclimatization.
Try to avoid dehydration. Drink more water during and after the flight; give up coffee and alcohol. During the flight, massage your legs from time to time and regularly move the shins and feet.
Wipe your face with moistening napkins or splash it with water from a canister, and apply a moisturizer. These simple actions will help to protect the skin from dehydration. We wish you a pleasant journey!

Losing weight in targeted areas can be quite difficult if eating healthy and exercising is not the thing for you. Shapewear is a garment on the market today that will help you smooth and slim down those problematic areas and look fabulous in any outfit. There are many different styles and kinds of shapewear, perfect to suit anyone’s needs. Shapewear helps to flatten targeted areas, but do the results actually last? This is a question that has been studied and examined for years. Many researchers have found that wearing shapewear can help someone to shed some extra weight.
What is Shapewear?
Shapewear is a type of garment that gives off compression to many areas of the body, helping to create a slimmer looking appearance. This means it can help to compress stomach fat, hip fat, thigh fat, arm fat etc. Shapewear is often worn under outfits and will help to give off a slimmer looking appearance from the outside. There are many styles of shapewear on the shelves today, some that is even quite fashionable. Some include spanx, corsets, compression tanks, slimming capris, tights, compression arms etc. Many famous celebrities own their own set of shapewear and are often seen on the red carpet; The Kardashian sisters wear shapewear under all of their outfits.
Shapewear and Weight Loss
This has been a controversial topic now for many years. Does shapewear actually help you to lose weight? There have been many studies looking into this question and they have found that these garments do in fact help you lose a few pounds and improve weight loss. Because of the tight compression fit, the garments are known to help someone lose weight by massaging an area and causing you to sweat. They believe that this helps to increase circulation and therefore improve weight loss. While these garments might help you shed a few pounds, they will not help you to lose major pounds. Eating healthy and exercising is a much safer and more effective way to lose weight.
Many people believe that the tighter the better when it comes to choosing shapewear, this is not entirely true. For maximum results, shapewear should fit tightly but should not fit too tight where it starts to hurt. There are many breathable materials that help reduce sweating underneath and feel more comfortable. If you start feeling sick, dizzy, itchy, or experience loss of breath, then you should refrain from wearing the shapewear immediately. It probably is too tight. The perfect shapewear should help you get the appearance you are looking for while feeling very comfortable in your everyday tasks.
Many ladies, especially those with excess pounds, dream of having a slim figure, or at least a proportionate, beautiful shape. A waist trainer does not protect us from heat or cold – it saves us from boring routine, creating a mysterious female character instead. This image has changed under the influence of fashion, but whether reserved or bountiful, it has always attracted and fascinated. The corset helped approach the ideal female figure, as it was originally conceived for the improvement of the body’s shape.
A waist trainer helps to reduce your waistline, make your breasts look like headlights, visually expand the shoulders, and create a proud bearing. The functions of the waist trainer also include soft support of the breasts: unlike a bra that transfers its weight onto the shoulders, a waist trainer supports it from below, distributing weight over the body.
How to choose and wear a waist trainer?
Nowadays the corset has again declared its existence, but it has been modified and improved. We now call it a waist trainer, because it is no longer just accessorizes, it is something that is supposed to train our waist for a perfect look. This spicy accessory can be not only an element of intimate clothes, but also part of the evening, and sometimes everyday attire, even something we wear for fitness class. Why does a female figure, fit tightly into a waist trainer, attract men so much? Because it can be used to establish the ratio of waist and hip 7:10, which is considered to be the most sexually attractive.
You can hear opinions that such a trainer distorts the internal organs and that wearing it is unhealthy. Modern corsetry fabric and elastic textiles allow you to create the perfect silhouette without making it difficult to breath or move. A good corset supports the internal organs, back and chest, no worse than a medical bandage. The woman feels slim, and she is guaranteed to receive attention.
Sophisticated design with plastic or metal underwire allows you to make your body 5-25 cm (2-10 inches) slimmer. The construction of a good waist trainer is designed so that when you tighten it, your smooth shapes are preserved. When starting, do not wear your waist trainer more than 2-3 hours. Before you go out there, practice wearing it at home for 20 minutes several days before the event: the body needs to get used to new sensations, you will have to breathe and move differently.
Before buying a waist trainer, define your purpose – emphasizing the body line or its modeling. We know everything about waist trainers, and we can share with you simple rules to wear one to make it work more efficiently on your body.
