My small but mighty NYC closet is overflowing with Shapermint essentials in every color (hello new pink!). Clearly it’s a challenge for me to pick just one! But what I’m wearing the most? Definitely the Everyday Shaping Boy Shorts. I live in dresses so these give me the perfect amount of coverage, shape and never any chafe!

Jessie Murillo Professional Model & Mom

She hopes that through her own journey of self love and acceptance that she can inspire and encourage women all over to embark on their own journeys fearlessly. Her mantra is “you can have, be, and do it all!”

Carmen Rene Lymphedema Awareness Activist

Carmen Rene

Small town girl, Carmen Rene, currently residing in Los Angeles realized in her twenties that her passion was challenging our notion of beauty and empowering women around the world to feel beautiful in their own skin. Born with primary lymphedema, a rare, long-term condition where excess fluid collects in tissues causing swelling in the legs and feet, Carmen wanted to share her own experiences and insecurities on her path to self-acceptance and self-love.

In 2017, she created @EatTheCakeToo on Instagram. Her honest, fearless, and thought-provoking posts challenging the unrealistic standards of beauty and breaking the stereotypes surrounding fat bodies struck a chord with men and women across the globe. Her dedication to helping others on their own journey to body acceptance remains unwavered. Carmen is strong, confident, charismatic, and a driven self-loving warrior and she is just getting started.

Comfort, support and beautiful fluffy thighs that don’t always need to be touching each other. That’s why I love my Shapermint products the most!

The Agenda

Agenda Strike your Empowerment Pose


We're Redefining National Shapewear Day

For National Shapewear Day 2022, Shapermint redefines the traditional “Power Pose” as the “Empowerment Pose”.

Redefining National Shapewear Day

The Empowerment pose is you showing up as you are and empowering others to celebrate their shape and wear confidence. No need to adapt to what society deems as powerful, whether that’s how you move your body, what you wear, how you look, or where you’re from.

Let’s view ourselves as the powerful women we are, and empower the women around us. Because in the Shapermint community we know and love…

empowered women, empower women.
