Can I lose weight with shapewear?

Shapewear is basically any type of undergarment that shapes and supports the body.

Once brutally called "waist cincher”, today thanks to the innovation of the textile industry this special category of underwear is better described as "shaping" because instead of compressing the body with questionable aesthetic results, the latest generation shapewear supports, ‘wraps’ and shapes the silhouette, ensuring comfort and maximum freedom of movement. It is not a magical solution for weight loss.

In this blog, we will explain whether or not shapewear can be an aide for weight loss.

What is Shapewear?

Synthetic and synthetic blend fabrics typically used for shapewear are lightweight, flexible, stretch easily without losing their shape, dry quickly, and wick moisture away from the body.

Thanks to a combination of fabrics, reinforced and shaped parts, shapewear works through friction and shrinkage with the aim of massaging, stimulating the epidermis and reducing excess fluids through a squeezing action on some parts of the body.

Shapewear gives women the confidence to wear their favourite clothes without feeling uncomfortable. It is also great for the postpartum period or people with certain medical conditions.

Can shapewear help you lose weight?

Shapewear is not a fitness gadget and will not help you lose weight. Instead, it will allow you to cover up a multitude of imperfections to help you look good even if your body isn't exactly how you want it to be. The most important benefit, however, is another: it increases your self-esteem. In fact, any garment from the EvenLina range gives you the opportunity to look and feel your best, at any time of your day.

Shape wear works by compressing and redistributing body fat, but it does not actually remove or reduce fat cells. In order to, lose weight, you need to create a calorie deficit by consuming fewer calories than you burn through exercise and daily activities. This requires a combination of healthy eating habits and regular exercise. While shapewear can be a helpful accessory to enhance your appearance and boost your confidence, it is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle.


Shapewear can be a helpful clothing accessory for enhancing your appearance and boost your self-esteem, but it is not a tool for weight loss. To lose weight, a healthy balanced diet and regular exercise are essential.
