2. Wear Your Shapewear the Right Way

Some people find it challenging to wear shapewear, but the trick is to identify how each style should be worn to make dressing up a breeze. For bodysuits, shorts-style shapewear, and shaping cami, start from the bottom. Step into the shapewear and gradually pull it up, ensuring a smooth and even fit. If your shapewear has hooks or zippers, fasten them securely for added support.

 Stepping into your shapewear allows you to pull it more easily, and to avoid it from getting stuck in your shoulders, which may require more effort. Check out our step-by-step guide on how to wear your shapewear.
