Our #ShapermintCrewLove Series continues, and this time, we’re excited to introduce one of our Shapermint Crew Brand Ambassadors, Omaira Garcia. Read on to find out how she wants to shape change with us.
You’re one of our Brand Ambassadors, part of the Shapermint Crew! What inspired you to join the Crew?
First and foremost, the product itself. I knew about Shapermint for a while and I had been using the Shaper Shorts and Shaper Panties for a while and loved how these essential items made me feel with my outfits. I felt comfortable and I noticed that I wore dresses more often because of how the shaper shorts made me feel confident. I believe that when you have experienced a product that gives you confidence and enhances the outfits you wear on top of your shapewear, you want to share it with others so they have the opportunity to try the experience and feel the same way you do.
What do you enjoy most about being on the Crew?
The thing I enjoy the most about becoming part of the Crew is the opportunity of being creative with Shapermint shapewear, finding ways to be fashionable with the shapewear essentials, and sharing these fashion trends with others that probably are self-conscious of their bodies, just like me and convince them to try Shapermint Shapewear.
How do you want to shape change with us?
By continuing to be part of the Shapermint Crew and spreading the word of how great these shapewear essentials are by sharing my experiences in using Shapermint.
How do you define body positivity?
I define body positivity by supporting other women who feel confident in their own skin. I think that when women support women, the word empowerment grows stronger. - Omaira
We absolutely love the fact that you use social media as a liberating force to celebrate body positivity and other movers & shapers out there. Are there any women on social media who inspire you to be your best self?
Yes! And her name is Lizzo, the singer. For me, she is a vivid example of someone who feels comfortable in her own skin, empowered to feel sassy, sexy, and confident of who she is and how she feels with her curves. Lizzo sets an example to those of us who may look similar to her in size, but just need a bit of a nudge to feel as confident as her.
How important has stocking up on basics been to you during the quarantine?
It has been very important as the quarantine gave me time to think outside the box on what essentials I needed to stock up on in order to put my outfits together and be ready to go back to work after quarantine.
What are your top tips for breaking out of a fashion/style rut?
My top tips for breaking out of a fashion /style rut are 1. See what outfits you have in your closet that you haven't worn in a while. 2. Check out which Shapermint essentials you can use to enhance those outfits and try them out. 3. Reach out to other women who use Shapermint and share fashion tips.
What is your favorite Shapermint style? How do you like to style it?
I actually have two favorite Shapermint styles, #1 the Scoop Neck Cami, and 2# Shapermint High-Waisted Shaping Leggings. I love styling the scoop neck cami with a pencil skirt and jean jacket. It makes me look slimmer and the style enhances my body shape. I love combining my Shapermint Shaping Leggings with my scoop neck cami, a belt, and a blazer to create a business casual look for work.
Want to share anything else?
I love the fact that Shapermint continues to be innovative in creating these personal essentials to make women feel comfortable, confident, and empowered in their everyday shapewear.
