Shapewear and Stockings

Do you like shapewear and stockings but can’t seeing yourself wearing it? If so, why?

Elinor asked women this question and covered the topic in her vintage fashion blog, The Nylon Swish.




“I have heard so many women talking about how they love the look of retro shapewear and lingerie on other people but that they wouldn’t or couldn’t ever wear it themselves.

In this article I have outlined the top five reasons that women have given me to not wear shapewear and/or stockings and why I think those excuses should be forgotten about.”

The Modern Shapewear Garment.

Tomima of HerRoom, wrote an excellent article about the structure of modern shapewear and how garments comfortably contour bodies into classic silhouettes like those seen on Mad Men. You can read it on Lingerie Briefs.

She even went on to talk about Rago Shapewear. “Take Rago, for instance. They’re pretty much the Cadillac of shapewear manufacturers. With decades of design experience, they’ve honed the construction of their shapewear to deliver true, consistent contouring and smoothness.”
