What Shapewear Can Do For You

Updated: Oct 21, 2020

It doesn't matter what size you are, EVERY woman should own a good piece of shapewear! Whether you are a size 2 or a size 22, shapewear is a necessity for every woman's wardrobe.

Here are 5 Tips to help you choose the right piece of shapewear.


1.) Never purchase shape wear that is too small or too tight. The constriction will create bulging in other area, so it defeats the purpose of wearing the shapewear. So stick with your actual size. Remember shapewear meant for smoothing out lumps and bumps, not to make all your curves disappear.


2.) Nothing is worse than wear ill fitted shapewear in the warmer months. It is hot, sticky and beyond uncomfortable. When shopping for shapewear, look for pieces made with breathable material like cotton blends.


3.) It is best to get a full body shaper if you are looking for more coverage. Trying to find two pieces that match and do the same job equally is almost impossible. A full body shaper will give you a seamless, smooth appearance.


4.) Different fabrics create different levels of constriction. Medium to lightweight fabrics are made to smooth and tone your body, whereas, tighter and stronger fabric creates more constriction and creates full figure transformation. Being aware of the difference between the fabrics and knowing what look you are going for will help you choose the proper shapewear.


5.) All shapewear is not created equally. There are different styles for every occasion and outfit. Choose shapewear styles that suit your outfit. Wearing the proper cut or style will create a beautiful and seamless look. No one wants their shapewear showing or peeking out!
