Shapewear harmful?

I am a big fan of shapewear, I think it is great espeically after having a baby and want to feel good about yourself and look good. However I was wondering, by wearing these things does it do any harm to our bodies?

  • If it doesn't hurt when you have it on, then no. If you wear a boned corset all the time, you can develop weakened back and abdominal muscles. That's only for the serious lace up kind that nips your waist in many inches and then only if you wear it regularly. Regular Wal-Mart support garments are completely safe!
