  1. I had no clue about the existence of Arm shapers. That’s in face genius and made for me. 😀 A lot of women are hesitant about using shapewears but I find these completely normal. It’s like makeup for the body – help in enhancing your body. I forced my sister to try Bust shapewear and now not only she feels more confident, regular use has improved her figure a bit too.

  2. It is like a closet full of clothes but basic & essentials like body shapers we tend to overlook usually. Buying in different colors and experimenting should also be fun 🙂 Interesting post! Had no idea about the arm shapers though 😛 A gentle reminder to go get some body shapers, time to pamper the closet 😀

  3. This post is really very interesting n fruitful to me coz I am a mother of 5 month baby and I need tummy shaper urgently. My question is which brand serves better??
