A Guide to Choosing the Right Shapewear for Women

Staying in shape is the dream of every woman so that she can wear all the dresses she wants to without feeling bad about her figure. However, this dream doesn’t come true for all. While a few women diet or work out rigorously so that they are in shape, there are others who go the smart way and use the magical garment known as the ‘shapewear’.


For those of you who want to use the right shapewear, there are a few important things to take into account while shopping. So, here’s a quick guide that can help you through choosing the best shapewear for women.


Pick the Right Size


Most women have the misconception that a smaller size will make them appear slimmer. However, this is not true. It will rather make you seem bigger as the extra bulges will pop out. It will also make you feel uncomfortable, which will show on the outside. So, choose the accurate size as shapewears are designed such that they can cater to the needs of women of all sizes.


Know Your Body Shape


Women generally fall into one of these body shape categories - triangle, apple, pear, or hourglass. If you know your body shape, it gets easier to choose the right shapewear to flatter your body type. For example, a woman with a slim waist but approximately same sized hips and bust comes under the hourglass category and high-rise briefs or a waist cincher would suit her the most as it accentuates the waist.


Find the Target Area


You are the one who knows your body the best. Analyze your body and find the target regions that need utmost shaping or smoothening. Is it your heavy thigh, protruding tummy, big bust or cellulite legs? If you have a huge tummy, go for the best tummy tucker. Once you identify this, it is easier to choose the right shapewear.


Consider Your Outerwear


If you have been wearing the same shapewear for all kinds of outfits, you are making a fashion blunder. Know that shapewears are designed specifically for each kind of outfit. Whether it’s a saree, trouser, bodycon dress or skirt, there are different shapewears. So, choose the right one accordingly.


Further, there are different materials from which shapewears are made, including cotton-mix, spandex, and more. Based on your comfort level, pick the material appropriately.


With this, you now know what to look for in a shapewear before slipping into one. Keep these points in mind and your shopping experience and wearing experience will be the best one ever.
