First of all, let us say what's the difference between a body
shaper or "bodyshaper" and a body slimmer or "bodyslimmer"...
- A body shaper or bodyshaper is any compression
garment that holds everything in or lifts up any part of your
body to make you look thinner and slender.
- A body slimmer or bodyslimmer
is a bodyshaper that additionally heats some areas of your body
to make them sweat and reduce your measurements.
We have several materials...
- Latex: Latex makes you sweat and reduce your measurements
gradually. It is always covered with cotton/lycra in the bottom
so your skin will not be in contact with the latex to avoid
allergies. Sometimes it is also covered in the top. Some items
are made of lycra and have latex in the abdominal area only
(control level 5), other items have latex all around in the
back and front from below the bra to the hips (control level
6). The corsets are totally made of latex and have boning and
hooks to adjust them (control level 7). The more latex it has,
the more it will make you sweat and the stronger control it
will have because the latex does not stretch. All the items
that have latex say "Thermal" or "Thermic"
or "Latex" in the title or description. You should
ask your doctor before buying any item with latex for use after
surgery. The latex does not let your skin breath through.
- Lycra: Control level: 4. Strong control while letting
your skin breathe through. It will not make you sweat, and it
will make you look thinner while you wear it. The material is
similar to several layers of pantyhose. It is stronger than
pantyhose but it is still delicate. It looks small, the material
doesn't stretch easily and it's not easy to put on (you must
pull it up from the bottom) but if you buy your correct size,
you must be able to put it on and be comfortable. They don't
have zipper and are completely seamless.
- Powernet: Control levels 2 and 3. Medium control while
letting your skin breathe through (will not make you sweat).
It is thicker than lycra but more flexible and easier to put
on. Some of them have a zipper. Recommended if the comfort is
your priority or if you need a plus size.
- Microfiber: Control level 1. Low control, does not
make you sweat. Very comfortable and easy to wear. Makes you
