Fashion & Fajas

by Tai Brown • Taime out Massage Owner

Fajas, or compression garments, are commonly used by many people to help achieve a smoother, slimmer appearance. They’re also much needed swell retardant tools after plastic surgery. Whether you’re trying to create a more streamlined silhouette under a fitted outfit, heal from surgery, or simply looking to boost your confidence, fajas can be an incredibly useful tool.

However, hiding a faja under your clothes can be a challenge, particularly when it comes to professional fashion and attire. In this article, we’ll discuss the struggles of hiding a faja under fashion and provide some helpful tips to make the process a little easier.

Struggle 1: Visible Lines and Bumps

One of the biggest challenges when it comes to wearing a faja under clothing is the risk of visible lines and bumps. Even the most seamless faja can cause visible indentations and ridges under tight clothing, particularly around the waistband and thighs. This can be particularly frustrating when you’re trying to achieve a sleek, streamlined look, as visible lines can ruin the effect. To combat this issue, choose clothing made from thicker, more forgiving fabrics, such as bandage dresses or structured cotton, and avoid clingy materials like jersey or silk.

Struggle 2: Difficulty with Zippers and Buttons

Another common issue when it comes to wearing a faja under fashion is the difficulty with zippers and buttons. Compression garments can be incredibly tight, which can make it difficult to fasten clothing with zippers or buttons. This can be particularly problematic when you’re getting dressed in a hurry or trying to change outfits quickly. To make the process easier, try using a long-handled zipper pull or button hook to help you fasten your clothes more easily. You may also want to consider wearing clothing with stretchy waistbands or adjustable closures, such as elastic or drawstrings, which can be easier to maneuver over a faja.

Struggle 3: Visible Faja Straps and Waistbands

Finally, one of the most frustrating struggles when it comes to hiding a faja under fashion is the risk of visible straps and waistbands. Fajas can be incredibly tight, which means that they often create visible bulges or lines under clothing. Additionally, the straps and waistbands of fajas can be difficult to conceal, particularly if you’re wearing a low-cut or backless outfit. To combat this issue, select fajas that are designed to be worn under specific types of clothing. For example, Tributo fajas offers garments with removable straps or low-cut waistbands that are designed to be worn with backless dresses or tops. Additionally, consider investing in fashion tape or double-sided tape, which can be used to keep straps and waistbands in place and prevent them from slipping.

đź’ˇOther Tips Include:

✨ Wearing clothes with print, lines, and patterns to disguise faja lines.

✨ Get fajas that do NOT stop mid-thigh; get one that comes to the ankle, the knee, or bot-shorts cut to avoid the garment indentation line coming through (this is secretly how the bloggers fish out which celebs had surgery. Dead giveaway.

✨ Wrap dresses are LOVE! They make faja life and fashion easier.

✨ Loose fitting long flowy dresses are always a great option. Hides the bulk and compression bulges so you can walk around like the Michelin-man NY State cream puff in peace.

✨ Peplum tops, crinkle/pleated skirts and pants, and layered fashion compliment faja life perfectly!

✨ Hiding a faja under fashion can be a challenging and frustrating process. However, with a few simple tips and tricks, it’s possible to make the process a little easier. By choosing clothing made from forgiving fabrics, using long-handled zipper pulls or button hooks, thicker materials, patterns, and investing in fajas designed for specific types of clothing, you can help reduce the visibility of your compression garment and achieve a more streamlined, confident look.
