What Is Shapewear And Why Do We Celebrate National Shapewear Day?

Have you ever heard of #NationalShapewearDay? Not many people have. In fact, it's one of the most underrated holidays for women. While we're all aware of other days celebrating the undergarments that we wear such as National Lingerie Day and National Bra Day, National Shapewear Day is lesser known. However, it deserves to be celebrated just as much!

What is Shapewear?

Shapewear, also known as body shapers and SupportiveWear, is a foundation garment designed to shape the body and enhance your natural curves. They come in different levels of compression depending on the result you are aiming for. Nowadays, women choose to wear shapewear because it helps them wear confidence and celebrate their shape under any outfit.
