Thousands of high quality couture made Colombian made shapewear and corsetry products known as fajas were already circulating in the international market when Kim Kardashian, the famous American celebrity, uploaded several photos to her Instagram wearing an elegant Ann Chery waist trainer made in Colombia. Since then, Colombian fajas have quickly grown in popularity. So much so, that Kim has recently released her own Colombian Faja inspired shapewear line.
Today, Colombian Fajas are the best-selling control undergarments in the world. However, its benefits and designation of origin go well beyond the use that celebrities give it.
Fajas are made to change the body. Not just shape it.
What is a faja used for?
Fajas are made of fabrics such as spandex, lycra, nylon and latex among other high quality materials. In Spanish, faja means wrap, and the compression garments made in Colombia are proven and popular for women and men recovering from tummy tucks, liposuctions procedures, brazilian butt lifts, industry experts say.
What is the material used to make fajas?
Old proven design principles continue today, with the benefit of a diversification of a high-tech workforce and significant advances in raw material: intelligent hypoallergenic, antibacterial, vitamin packed fabrics, even thermal properties are used to manufacture some fajas. The large Colombian fajas brands have already made strategic alliances with Indian companies that are leaders in the textile manufacturing sector worldwide.
If that still does not convince you, original brands such as Salomé, MyD and Diane Poitiere incorporate in their institutional guidelines the development of the region, social participation and environmental campaigns. In fact, for its contributions to economic development and national GDP, the Government of Colombia has been a strong ally to the fajas sector.
How did Colombian Fajas come to market?
In the nineties there was an increase in cosmetic surgeries in Colombia. Women from other countries, and even men, traveled to the country only to be operated by important Colombian plastic surgeons. National entrepreneurs saw a business opportunity and thought about creating specialized garments for post-surgical care.
This is how the first Colombian girdles came to light: garments that take care of the skin, optimize the recovery process and improve the final appearance of surgeries.

in addition to postsurgical fajas, the Colombian fajas market offers:
Sports Fajas. These garments are designed with bloat reducing materials such as latex or neoprene that promote the increase in body temperature in areas such as the abdomen. They are ideal for exercise because they help burn fat and eliminate bloat in the desired areas. Some of the more popular products in this category are waist trainers and belts.
Molding Fajas. The perfect under garments for daily or occasional use: they shape the figure, stylize/exaggerate the curves and control the waist. Some offer butt lift, breast enhancement and abdomen control. Also, some models are designed to reduce waist. Among the manufacturing materials, Powernet, Nylon and Lycra are distinguished.
Invisible Fajas. Some know them as slips or invisible girdles. They are soft girdles, without hooks, zippers or seams. These are garments that are not noticeable under clothing, easy to put on, comfortable and flexible.
Postpartum Fajas. Similar to the post-surgical girdles, the postpartum girdles are specially designed for the recovery of the body after natural birth or caesarean section. This category offer orthopedic control garments that help correct posture and strengthen the lower back after giving birth.
Colombian fajas have sizes and solutions for all the figures and styles in which the feminine beauty of today is manifested. You can find, for example: body type girdles for dresses and short clothing, full body girdles, or plus size girdles in large sizes up to XXXXL.
