#TheBodysuitChallenge - A Perspective from a Shapewear Manufacturer

Is Shapewear harmful in light of the Tiktok generation and their hype around it?

An exploration into the controversy surrounding shapewear, its effects, and responsible usage

Interviewer: Charlotte Sauvignac, Intern at Le Parisien
Expert: Asiya, Founder of Crescentt Shapewear

Charlotte: Thank you for joining us, Asiya. Let's dive right in. What are your thoughts on the recent #bodysuitchallenge and its association with potential health risks, as highlighted by Dr. Choukroun?

Asiya: It's a pleasure to be here, Charlotte. The #bodysuitchallenge has undoubtedly sparked conversations about shapewear and its implications for health. Dr. Choukroun rightly pointed out concerns regarding ill-fitting garments and their potential dangers. It's crucial to address these issues and educate consumers on responsible usage.

Charlotte: Absolutely. Could you elaborate on the importance of choosing the right size when it comes to shapewear?

Asiya: Selecting the correct size is paramount. Ill-fitting shapewear can lead to discomfort and even health risks. At Crescentt, we emphasize the importance of precise measurements to ensure a safe and effective fit. Unfortunately, some brands, like Kim Kardashian's Skims, have strict return policies, discouraging women from exchanging items that don't fit properly.

Charlotte: That's a valid point. How do you address concerns about the potential health risks associated with shapewear, particularly in the context of the #bodysuitchallenge?

Asiya: The health risks associated with shapewear primarily stem from wearing garments that are too tight or restrictive. Our waist trainers, for instance, are designed for short-term wear—typically 8 to 10 hours—and should never be worn during sleep. The challenge arises when individuals wear shapewear that constricts their breathing, which can lead to long-term health issues. It's essential to emphasize proper sizing and usage guidelines to mitigate these risks.

Charlotte: Thank you for clarifying. Do you believe these health risks are primarily a result of improper sizing, or are there other factors at play, such as marketing strategies employed by certain brands?

Asiya: Improper sizing undoubtedly contributes to the controversy surrounding shapewear. However, marketing practices can also influence consumer behavior. Brands like Kim Kardashian's often promote unrealistic body standards, leading consumers to believe that shapewear can magically transform their bodies. This misconception can prompt individuals to purchase ill-fitting garments in pursuit of unattainable ideals, exacerbating the risks associated with shapewear usage.

Charlotte: Fascinating insights. Lastly, what steps can consumers take to ensure safe and responsible usage of shapewear?

Asiya: Education and awareness are key. Consumers should prioritize accurate measurements and opt for reputable brands with transparent sizing guidelines and flexible return policies. Additionally, it's essential to manage expectations and recognize that shapewear is not a substitute for healthy lifestyle habits. By approaching shapewear as a tool for enhancement rather than transformation, individuals can make informed choices that prioritize both their appearance and well-being.

Charlotte: Thank you, Asiya, for sharing your expertise on this important topic. Your insights will undoubtedly inform our readers and contribute to a more nuanced understanding of shapewear and its implications.
