I vote 'yay' - more as a self esteem placebo than any actual effect it might have, for me.

'yay', as long as you can wear it with the right outfits. the stuff does help though, actually.

yay, I guess.
I personally wouldn't wear it, partly because they look so uncomfortable.
But if it works for you, I think it's a good idea.

Nay

but I say this for the people who wear it like everyday to make their waist or thighs look smaller,making them appear to be something they are not

I see those commercials that are like "you can lose 4 inches in minutes!" and shit like that..yeah it may smooth you out when your in your clothes..but Im pretty sure the new guy someone start dating is going to be thinking " what the FUCK happend ?" "you had a flat stomach 20 minutes ago?" when you(in general) get undressed..

Not as bad as seeing someone first thing in the morning without their makeup on?

Do you vote 'nay' on makeup, too? Surely they're equally as deceptive.

Actually I do vote nay for make up..Im 19 and the only make up i have worned was lip gloss and mascara and that was because it for my graduation when i was 17. Whenever I meet someone they see the real me..marks in my face and all, my skin is also very very sensitive so I can't even wear make up even if i wanted to.

So long as you're consistent. It just irritates me when people are all "So-and-so is bad. Except for this. Because I like it."

Apparently some of them are good for your back? I am intrigued, anyway.

I'm not sure I understand. What else is shapewear for, other than disguising bits your less fond of, and enhancing your shape?

I could believe that - the one I own gives me really good posture.

Yay, although I haven't worn it because it looks so ugly and uncomfortable in the shop. But the one that Ruth linked to... well, I'll definitely check it out!

I say yay, but only if you're not using them to hide the fact that you need to lose weight. If you want to look 10 lbs smaller, then hop on a treadmill, my friend.
