Is It Healthy To Wear Every Day?
Extrapolating the haunted past of an utterly uncomfortable, organ-squeezing, and rib-crushing corset with the modern-age flexible and relatively way more comfortable shapewear would be unjustifiable.
The flexible body shapers today are made with a combination of two, fabric and spandex.
These body enhancers, though tight, do not alter your bone structure, to say the least.
The materials in modern shapers are flexible and breathable. Your body can return to its natural shape as soon as you slip out of it.
However, it is recommended to use them in moderation, given their compressing and tight nature.
You can also consider wearing it for special occasions and not every day.

If you notice any discomfort from your shapewear, you can stop wearing it.
Selecting a different size may also help.
