Shapewear is an undergarment made of elastic material that is both flexible and rigid, designed to provide support and smooth any bulges. Shapewear fabric is created in a comfortable and unobtrusive way while looking seamless under clothing. Shapewear is perfect for occasional use as it can pull in the stomach and improve posture.
