Oprah has talked up shapewear since it first became popular, and she is a big supporter of full figure shapewear. Oprah has gone to lengths to discuss the virtues of plus size shapewear, mostly because she has reaped the benefits of wearing these items herself. In Oprah’s Panty Primer, she teached women how to wear slimming solutions to reduce visible panty lines with non-binding edges and thong style full figure shapewear. Oprah did a series called “The O Panty Intervention,” where she taught women to wear their shapewear right, including plus size shapewear. In the year 2000, Oprah discovered Spanx and she brought the product on her show to share with the public. This was the first time she touted the benefits of plus size shapewear. And since that time, she has always been a believer. She even says she gave up wearing underwear entirely in order to wear shapewear every day. She encourages full figure women to do the same and wear full figure shapewear not just for special days, but for every day.
Full figure women deserve to feel good about their bodies and have a fabulous body image just like every other women. And since not everyone is built the same, plus size shapewear is the great equalizer.
