Ladies, Here Are 7 Reasons Why You Should Not Wear Shapewear Every day.

Corsets and other form-fitting clothes, such as belly tucking undergarments, are intended for women who want to achieve a flawless hourglass figure. Corsets have a long history, reaching back to the Victorian era when they were made of cotton, linen, or fine fabric like satin wrapped around steel, with cane and plastic boning added later. Elastic is currently used to make corsets and other form-fitting clothes that are breathable and flexible.

Shapewear and corsets compress the body to give it a specific shape. Although shapewear appears to be something that every woman should have in her wardrobe, it's important to remember that wearing it too often might have major health effects.

Hamper lung function.

Corsets compress your lungs' bottom lobes, preventing them from fully expanding when breathing and perhaps compromising their function over time.

Affect blood circulation.

Because the waist is constricted, the heart has to work harder to pump blood, which can produce palpitations. Shapewear is now made of breathable fabrics and isn't as tight as corsets, so it may not affect blood circulation as much.

Affect digestion.

Shapewear compresses the stomach, colon, and intestines all at the same time. Food mobility is hampered when pressure is applied to the intestines, which can cause digestive problems. Contracting the stomach can also induce acid reflux, which can be followed by heartburn.

Cause bloating and abdominal discomfort.

When your stomach is constricted, food digestion is impeded, resulting in bloating and abdominal discomfort, similar to what you might feel when wearing tight trousers and eating a large meal.

Compress your bowel.

Shapewear affects bowel movement and may aggravate Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

Pressure on your bladder.

It's inconvenient to go to the bathroom while wearing a corset or other form of shapewear, so most women avoid it. This increases the pressure on the bladder, perhaps resulting in stress incontinence and leaks.

Make you more prone to infections.

Since shapewear is tight and tends to trap moisture, it creates an excellent habitat for bacteria to thrive, potentially leading to skin rashes and infections.

Given the plethora of problems that shapewear can cause, you should use it sparingly and avoid wearing it daily.
