When it comes to choosing a girdle, each woman has a specific need.

It doesn't matter if you are curvy, lean,younger or older, what is true for all women is that e at some point they need to feel better about their bodies, whether that means highlighting the best of their curves or hiding what they do not like so much. Girdles are a quick solution that will help women achieve their goals.
It doesn't matter if you are curvy, lean,younger or older, what is true for all women is that e at some point they need to feel better about their bodies, whether that means highlighting the best of their curves or hiding what they do not like so much. Girdles are a quick solution that will help women achieve their goals.

I am going to share with you some data that we obtained from a virtual survey conducted by Leonisa, starting in 2020, with 500 women using our shapers.

One of the questions we asked was what is the the main reason women wear compression clothing, and these were the top answers:

  • When wearing compression garments, they feel better in the clothes they wear.
  • They feel that shapewears help them catch the attention of others: their self-esteem / confidence rises.
  • Shapewear helps them feel full faster when eating.
  • They feel that compression garments help them to lose weight and achieve a more enhanced figure.
With this data, we realized that each woman has a clear objective when wearing girdles and a specific need, but we noticed that there is something in common: this need is directly associated with the area of ​​the body that they want to improve, accentuate or control.

The need to wear a girdle is directly associated with the area of ​​the body you want to improve, accentuate or control.

For this reason, our team also asked during the survey which areas are the most important to control.

Here are my findings:

  • Approximately 7 out of 10 women seek to shape and style their abdomen and waist. There is no doubt that it is one of the areas where fat is most concentrated and rolls can be hard to get rid of or lead to insecurities. In addition, many women confirmed that they start to explore the world of shapewear after a pregnancy because it’s an easier way to help get their bodies back to what they looked like pre-pregnancy..

  • Another area most women want to slim is the hip area. If you are looking for a garment that makes you feel tighter and slimmer, then try the strong control girdles, designed by experts in the shapewear field.

  • And without a doubt, the back rolls are also a focal area. Generally, these rolls develop after wearing a very tight bra for years. If this is something you relate to, this can be largely avoided if you wear the correct bra size.

Keep in mind that your needs, the areas you want to control and how you feel when wearing shapewear will surely coincide with many other women. Remember the specific occasions when wearing a girdle is a good idea: a party, wedding, a special event or simply when you are going to wear tighter clothes.

Do you want to know about my relationship with the girdles?

I’ll confess that I feel a little insecure with my hips and thighs, I wish they were more toned. For this, I have 3 types of garments that I love and I cannot live without them, they are the best instant solution:

1. I love control shorts

These shorts are essential when I wear a loose skirt or dress. I feel more secure because I can move or sit quietly; I don't have to worry about a thing. I look skinnier and when it's hot my legs don’t rub together—, they truly are the best.

Control Slip

2. I have a light control slip

I like to wear light slips under my tight dresses or clothing made from thin fabric. My stomach looks flatter and the cellulite on my legs is hidden. In addition, this slip is a life-saver when I wear very transparent white linen, so my underwear does not show

3. I love to wear control leggings

Usually, when I’m at work I spend all day standing in one of our Leonisa stores, and these leggings allow me to be stylish while also improving my circulation . I especially recommend them if you are going to wear white pants or very tight / slim ones.

This garment goes with absolutely everything and will make you feel secure 24/7. The best thing about these panties are the variety of styles, you can find them in brazilian or cheeky designs. These panties include an invisible effect so you don’t have to worry about panty lines and they have some detail like lace to make you feel more feminine.

Panty shorts:

If your hip or legs make you feel insecure, this shapewear piece is perfect for you. The panty short offers perfect coverage that goes from the mid abdomen to the thighs, it will help you to hide the famous "cameltoe" and cellulite.

This is one of my favorite silhouettes to wear under skirts or dresses because it makes you feel more secure when moving around while slimming your abdomen and waist.
When should you wear these shorts? You can choose different styles according to the occasion because some are longer than others. If you are going to wear a dress or short skirt, make sure that the shorts do not show.

If you consider your legs to be "chubby", as many consumers mention to me, you’ll have a hard time taking off these panty shorts as they prevent your legs from rubbing together and help keep you much cooler.
Additionally if you’re looking to enhance your butt more, Leonisa also offers control shorts with removable pads.

I am going to tell you a secret: these are my favorite shorts.

I use these shorts without pads because I don't need them, but it truly fascinates me how soft and comfortable these shorts are! They flatten my abdomen, my skin doesn’t roll over the seams th, and they don't ride up. I wear this shapewear piece with all of my dresses.

Maternity and Postpartum Girdles:

These girdles help you to feel comfortable before and after pregnancy.
If you are pregnant and you begin to feel that your tummy is stretching, I recommend using a maternal girdle that has reinforcement in the lower abdomen and back to give you the necessary support and relieve weight as the baby grows more.
Do not worry! These girdles have the ability to expand in the stomach area, so your baby will be comfortable all the time. In addition, they can help you prevent back pain caused by the weight of the belly.

For after pregnancy, nothing is more comfortable than a postpartum girdle. I am sure of this even thoughI am not a mother,because I have advised many women and friends who are pregnant and they loved them!. Their comments are always positive: "I loved the girdle, I feel less swollen, it is comfortable and I have seen changes in my body
The postpartum girdles are also practical— they utilize Velcro that will allow you to measure the girdle to fit your body and adjust more over time. So you can continue using the shaper and tracking your progress.
