Shapermint Guide To Buying Shapewear

With more women embracing their curves, we’re happy to be part of their journey of self-love and body positivity. One of the keys to this fantastic, ongoing change in mindset is the newest technology in shaping undergarments or SupportiveWear which has helped empower all of us to celebrate our shape and wear confidence!

We know that ordering the right shapewear size online can be a little confusing, so on your first-ever shapewear experience, we’re here to help you make it fun and easy.

Rethink Shapewear Comfort

Forget about only using shapewear for limited occasions and figure out how you want to feel every time you go out. Shapewear are everyday essentials you can count on for your shaping and support needs. As a first-time shapewear buyer, being familiar with the different styles and functions will help you in choosing the right one.

With different levels of compression control, you can decide how tight and slimming the fabric will feel on your skin. We recommend that first-time users choose the level of control based on their own comfort and the occasion, and not so much on style. Opt for lower levers for everyday use and higher levels for special events.

Do Your Research 

Going to the shops to make your first purchase is so last century. Join the online revolution and build your own shapewear collection online. Believe us when we say that it pays to read all the 101 blogs before placing your first order online. 

The best way to do that is to identify specific body areas that need shaping and choose shapewear accordingly that will be a perfect fit for your unique curves. This way you can make sure you have shapewear essentials that not only provide the desired shaping but also guarantee comfort without causing any discomfort or unsightly bulges.

Figure Out Your Size 

The goal you should achieve when getting your first shapewear is to feel comfortable in it. Your body shape (whether it’s hourglass, rectangle, etc.) influences the choice of suitable shapewear.

The right size can make all the difference, so it’s important for you to check our sizing guide to know how to get your measurements accurately.

Our Fit Experts are also available 24/7 to help you with your sizing needs.

Pick Your Style

Need to smooth, lift, cinch, or just feel comfy? Whatever your priorities, you also need to choose a shapewear color that matches your skin tone and compliments the outfits you intend to wear.  

It’s important to have a general idea of which other items from your wardrobe you want to match your shapewear with. This will allow you to shine as all your pieces will match together to create a start look regardless of the occasion.
