Do Colombian fajas help you to lose weight?

This is not true. Girdles (silhouette shapers) provide compression and support to the body, which can help smooth and shape it, making it appear slimmer. However, they do not cause weight loss. Maintaining a healthy diet and exercising regularly to lose weight is essential.

Girdles are only for women with huge bellies?

This is not true. Fajas come in various sizes and styles, including plus sizes, to accommodate all body types. They can provide compression and support to the abdominal area, hips, thighs, and back, helping to smooth and shape the body and making it appear slimmer. They can also be worn to improve posture, reduce pain and discomfort, and enhance the body's shape.

Plus-size women may benefit from S-SHAPERS more than others, as they can provide additional support and compression to the abdominal area, helping to reduce the appearance of a tummy pooch. However, it's not just plus-size women who can benefit from S-SHAPERS. They can be worn by anyone who wants to improve their body shape or reduce pain and discomfort.

Can I do exercise with any kind of Colombian girdle?

Colombian girdles, also known as silhouette shapers, can be worn while exercising, but choosing the right type and fit is essential to ensure maximum comfort and support. Choosing a girdle specifically designed for exercise or physical activity is recommended. These fajas are typically made with breathable and moisture-wicking fabric, which helps to keep the body cool and dry during exercise. They also have a more flexible and stretchable design, which allows for a more excellent range of motion while exercising.

A girdle that is too tight or restrictive can impede movement and cause discomfort, while one that is too loose may not provide adequate support. It's recommended to try on different sizes and styles and choose the one that fits comfortably and provides the desired level of compression and support.

Are Girdles body-positive?

Yes absolutely. Fajas are often thought of as a tool for hiding or altering one's body shape, but in reality, they can be body-positive. The use of S-SHAPERS is not about hiding or changing one's body shape but rather about embracing and celebrating it.

S-SHAPERS (silhouette shapers) can be worn to provide support and compression to the abdominal area, hips, thighs, and back, helping to smooth and shape the body and making it appear slimmer. This can help to reduce pain and discomfort, improve posture, and enhance the body's shape. They can also be worn to support and aid in healing after surgery or pregnancy. Using S-SHAPERS can also be an empowering experience for many individuals. They can help individuals to feel more confident in their bodies, regardless of their size or shape. They can be worn as a tool for self-care and self-love, allowing individuals to feel comfortable and confident in their skin.

Can I wear my Colombian girdle to sleep?

No. Sleeping with your Colombian girdle on can be uncomfortable and restrictive, as the compression can constrict movement and make it difficult to find a comfortable position. Additionally, wearing a Colombian girdle while sleeping can also interfere with the body's natural healing and repairing process that occurs during sleep. This can cause discomfort and pain and even harm your body.

It is also important to note that Colombian girdles are not designed to be worn overnight. The fabric and stitching may not withstand the pressure and wear of being worn for an extended period, which can cause the girdle to lose its shape and effectiveness.

Can I wash my Colombian girdle in a machine?

It is not recommended to wash them in a washing machine. The heat and agitation of a washing machine can damage the fabric, cause shrinkage, and lose the elasticity and compression of the garment.

Hand washing is the recommended method of cleaning Colombian girdles. To hand wash, fill a sink or basin with lukewarm water and add a mild detergent. Gently submerge the girdle and use your hands to massage the fabric to remove any dirt or stains gently. Rinse the girdle thoroughly with clean water and gently press out any excess water. Do not wring or twist the girdle, as this can cause damage to the fabric.

Do Colombian fajas press on my organs?

No, they don't. They are made with high-quality, breathable, and stretchable fabric that allows for proper movement and circulation of the body. There is a common misconception that Colombian fajas press on the organs, which is not valid. S-SHAPERS are designed to compress the abdominal area, hips, thighs, and back, but not to the point of compressing the organs. They are made to be worn comfortably and provide support to the muscles and joints rather than to press on the organs.

Choosing the right size and level of compression when wearing S-SHAPERS is essential.

Remember, S-SHAPERS are not a weight-loss solution and should not be used as a substitute for a healthy lifestyle. Eating a balanced diet and regular exercise is essential for overall health and well-being. Please don't fall into the myths and misinformation about fajas, and always make an informed decision regarding your health and well-being.
