No. Shapewear is actually painful for me, its binding and I don't think its very healthy.  I wear a half slip if I have a skirt on and I wear underneath tank tops but mostly for an extra layer of warmth.  I can't stand anything that is constricting.

@ALRATIBA. I was reading thru this thread...what type of shape wear do you have that has a built in bra....I am a 32 DDD and have never found anything that would support me like a bra does with an underwire....and I feel like I have looked everywhere.

Re: Do you wear shapewear?

Currently, Ambrielle from JCP.   I'm "barely" a "B" cup .. so bra support isn't an issue.   My issue is long torso - so I have to add "bra extenders" to bottom opening.


I also have some "wear your own bra" shapers that I've found in various stores.   


JCP and Hanes (online) are where I get most of my underwear.   For me - they have the best selection.

I heard a host ask a model if she was wearing shapewear!!!! I thought that was embarrassing and inappropriate

I can always see Carolyn's shape wear lines on her thighs.  They make longer ones where the lines wouldn't be visible but maybe she doesn't know they show.

I always wear some sort of shaper.  Been doing it all my adult life.


I think my clothes fit and look better with shapewear than without.
