Love handles can be a touchy subject for so many people. Though they are just one small part of your beautiful body, they are infamous within diet culture for being something that needs to go away. The truth is that even healthy bodies have love handles sometimes! They're a sign of strength, growth and bringing babies into the world.
Having said that, love handles can still be a little annoying every now and then when it comes to certain outfits. They can create an unwanted bump or curve near the hip and cause some fabrics to bunch or stretch in that area. If you want to smooth them out for certain occasions, then shapewear is a great way to make you feel more confident and comfortable. If you'e new to shapewear or are targeting the love handle area for the first time, read up on our shapewear favorites for love handles.
