Shapewear – An insider’s guide

If you thought that shapewear was for special dresses and occasions, then prepare to be surprised. This wonder garment can be worn daily under your everyday clothes. Because shapewear is no longer just about looking in shape, it’s about comfort, support, and looking and feeling great in whatever you wear. For most women, though, shopping for the right shapewear can be quite frustrating with the seemingly endless styles and shapes. Read on for simple tips to find the best shapewear for you.

Stick to your size

It’s easy to get tempted to go for a size down in an attempt to achieve extra firmness. It only results in bulges and makes you actually look bigger. Add to it the discomfort of wearing a size too tight. Find the right size and make sure that you are comfortable in it.

Choose the right style

This is where most women get confused. Just think what body part you want to shape up or want to support, and then look for suitable shapewear. Here are some of the most common styles.

For a smooth line up to the torso, go for a high waisted piece, preferable those that go up to the bra line. The high waisted shaper from Plussize gives excellent support and shape to the waist and back.
To smooth up your tummy and thighs go for long leg shapers. The super firm long leg panty or the lace jacquard control long leg shaper from Plussize gives good compression, support and structure to your tummy, back and thighs.

If you are just looking for some tummy tuck and back support for everyday, try the ultra-soft microfiber full brief.
A camisole works great if you are looking for a seamless upper body shape and support. Check out the everyday shaper camisole from plussize for a flattering shape and added stretch.
If you are looking for something comfortable yet firming up for your whole body, the firm support corselette is just the ideal thing for you.
These are just a few styles that are used most commonly. Check out the entire range for shapewear and corselettes on Plussize.

Look for fabrics that suit you best

Shapewear is generally made of nylon and spandex for stretch and shape. If you need something more breathable, go for cotton lined shapers like the cotton lined control panty. Cotton allows moisture regulation and microfibers help control odour.

Postpartum shapewear? Why not!

Your little bundle of joy has arrived, your happiness is overflowing. And so are your bulges. All that fatigue and aches and you have little time to think about shapewear. But postpartum shapewear can actually help support your abdomen, waist and back while reshaping it. Check out our special tips for postpartum shapewear.

So, there it is. Measure yourself for the right size, decide what you want to tuck in and support and just go for it. As we always say, Love your body. You are unique and so is your body. It’s not just about style, it’s about comfort too. So, get that shaper on and look and feel great and go conquer the world.
