One of the primary reasons that women avoid shapewear is that they find it too difficult to put on. Many funny stories have been told about having one's arms trapped or falling over in the struggle to pull on a spandex garment. Always step into shapewear, even camisoles, and pull the garment up over the hips to avoid trapping the head and arms in the shaper. Also, bunch up the shaper like pantyhose and pull it on while gradually releasing the fabric. Do not try to put it on like a regular piece of clothing.
Too many mince pies at Christmas have left many of us fighting to beat the flab this January. So a little lift is exactly what we need to help us feel more cheerful during a month of abstention. Now the latest, state-of-the art 'bum shaper' tights promise to give us a rear of the new year in seconds. Their release follows the success of the supermarket's Great Bum Jean last year, which sold pairs a minute in the first hour of going on sale.
