Girdles seem to have an retro connotation to them. They seem like something our grandmothers used to wear. In fact, girdles are still popular. They just have new names now like “shapewear”, “body shapers”, or “slimmers”. They do the same thing as girdles, but they sound more modern. When picking a girdle you should decide whether you want a girdle with legs, a high waist, an open bottom or a brief. Girdles can also be used as lingerie, in which case the style you want is more about look than anything else.
