What are fajas colombianas?

Fajas colombianas are a type of shapewear originally from Colombia. These bodysuits were initially worn by women who had just given birth or had surgery, to protect the body's shape while they recovered. However, due to their excellent body shaping capabilities, they are now a trending form of shapewear, and are sometimes referred to as waist trainers.

Fajas shapers, as a kind of compression girdle, make the body look slimmer, smoother, and more curvy in desired areas. Some models also provide back and bust support.

How to wear

Fajas colombianas shapewear are typically put on in the morning, and fastened from the bottom up. It is often recommended that beginners don't wear their compression garment for more than 2 hours at a time, and that these waist trainers should not be worn to sleep.

Product features

As fajas are tight and worn close to the skin, it is important that they are made of good quality, non-irritating, hypoallergenic material that is flexible, yet strong. The hooks and fasteners of the bodysuit must also be sturdy and high quality to hold the fabric together over long periods. These fasteners are the perfect size if they are easy to open and close, yet do not interfere with the wearer's comfort.

Having a wide range of sizes and accurate sizing guides is important for fajas colombianas, as if the garment is too tight, this could cause breathing problems, tingling or numbness in the legs, or even acid reflux. On the other hand, if the shapewear is too loose, it will not perform its aesthetic and other functions properly.

For more compression, fajas colombianas with a higher latex content are suitable. However, as not all customers can or desire high compression, and in fact, for post-surgery use, the garment should be loose enough to allow circulation and draining. Thus, size aside, consider producing a range of shapewear with different elasticity levels.
