We certainly cannot get enough of Melissa McCarthy. Besides being one of the funniest people currently making movies and television, McCarthy has been nominated for multiple awards (Emmy and Oscar!) and she is downright lovable.
But Shape.com recently reported that McCarthy has had a difficult time finding dressed for red carpet events due to her not being a standard Hollywood dress size. Unfortunately, as most of us are aware, there is not a lot of variety in A-list celebrity shapes and sizes which is an incredibly disappointing realization in 2014. Because she’s not a size 0, finding good dresses is an issue, despite being a big-name in Hollywood.
Everyone, take a full, deep breath and step away from the shapewear. Whether you swear by your Spanx every day or just break them out for special occasions, you aren’t doing your body any favors.
Shapewear is specifically designed to suck you up and hide any “blemishes” your body might have. To do that, of course, it has to be pretty tight. According to three doctors interviewed by the Huffington Post, that tightness can be dangerous.
The doctors, a gastroenterologist, dermatologist, and chiropractor, said that shapewear actually compresses your internal organs. Let’s say that again. Shapewear is compressing your internal organs, like your stomach, intestine, and colon.
There’s no doubt that today’s top TV shows feature some of the most beautiful people we’ve ever laid eyes on. My personal favorite is English actress Michelle Dockery who plays Lady Mary Crawley on the series Downton Abbey. The star’s petite figure, elegant costumes and defined cheek bones are enough to compel a full-on girl crush.
