The Evolution of Shapewear Underwear

Shapewear was sturdy and tight in the 1910s, usually using a strappy shapewear waist to create a slim waistline. Kickers were worn inside the tights, with straps below the waistband to hook the socks.

When shapewear came in 1920, it was criticized by liberal women because the corset constricted women's bodies and freedom of movement. The shapewear of this period changed to a lightweight and boneless shapewear waistband and loose underwear, with straps still used to hold socks under the waistband.

In 1930, with the development of industry, rayon, latex, cotton, and silk elastic threads were invented and more elastic one-piece shapewear became popular, the waistband and bra were combined into one shapewear, the one-piece shapewear of this period was still in the style of a skirt, and socks were fixed by long straps at the hem.

In 1938, Time magazine said, "In 1938, the perfect figure had to have curves, round, high breasts, a slim waist, and gently rounded hips."

In 1940, when shapewear came to the war years, women's shapes became more defined, bra became civilianized, "torpedo bra" and "bullet bra" became popular, and people in this period preferred to wear split underwear. The hemline of the skirt style was still fixed by long straps for socks.

Then came the 1950s, as women's clothing began to develop into modern fashion, the bullet corset became more exaggerated and obvious, still popular split underwear sets, the waistband began to feature the addition of inserts, by compressing the abdomen, exaggerating the chest to achieve the hourglass curve of the body.

In the 1960s, women were more fashionable and free, and bras were less constrained and thinner. Colored bra and panty sets were very popular at the time, and lace decorated shapewear shorts became popular as a direct replacement for traditional shapewear underwear, with long straps at the legs to hold socks.

In the 1970s, a time when Bras had political implications, women began to protest against bra-wearing, and during this period, light knitwear was still very popular, giving a seamless look. popular simple style

By the 1980s, women were wearing bodysuits made of soft lace under the popular power suit, and the pretty lace elements often appeared in a sexy style, so the line between lingerie and outerwear became blurred.

The free and modern 90s saw the birth of bowl-shaped lingerie made of cotton, using steel rings to hold the shape, which made small-cup women look fuller, and lingerie sets popular with simple styles. Logo printing on the waistband of the underwear became popular.

In 2000, women's clothing into the 21st century more fashionable, high elasticity shapewear became the new fashion, invisible shapewear, high elasticity shapewear became popular to this day shapewear design concept. During this period, there was a wide variety of shapewear to choose from, and high technology brought innovation in process and technology, and high elasticity seamless shapewear became the new trend.
