Adaptive shapewear is a type of underwear, which helps in looking slim and improving the body figure by compressing the fats and skin folds. As people nowadays are very conscious about their appearance and their social status, achieving the ideal body shape and complying with beauty standards in society has become critical. For this purpose, people are increasingly using adaptive shapewear products. This will continue to boost the market.
Shapewear helps people in achieving the ideal body shape without going to gym and dieting, gaining demand among ladies as well as gents. They also help people to deal with body deformities.
Shapewears are increasingly popular undergarments in the fashion business. These shaping underwear are designed for certain areas such as the stomach, waist, hips, and thighs. People can utilize the appropriate shapewear depending on their needs. Because shapewear instantaneously provides optimum figure and body configurations, the working population, particularly women looking for work-leisure attire, is acquiring and wearing it.
More than 40% of women use shapewear to improve their waist and hip shape. Bodysuits, corsets, control tights, control panties, control slips, girdles, slimming camisoles, and many other types of shapewear for women have been introduced to the market, and are available in a variety of sizes to fit any type of body.
Technological improvements in the garment and fabric sectors are increasing adaptable shapewear innovation and, eventually, sales. Laser cutting and bonding technology aided in the removal of shapewear seams and fastenings that caused them to be uneven.
Because they are flexible and tensile, synthetic materials such as neoprene, spandex, and lycra are often utilized for shapewear. These enhanced fabrics breathe better, are softer, and have toning characteristics for excellent body sculpting. Because people became accustomed to wearing comfortable clothes during the COVID pandemic, manufacturers are focusing on improving the comfort of shapewear.
On the other hand, there are certain factors limiting the market expansion. These include the use of cheap and poor quality fabric by small manufacturers, availability of alternatives to the shapewear like activewear and sportswear, and health complications that can occur on excessive use of these shapewear.
