Will you be kind enough to tell me what your opinion on bulges is? What did you say? They are awful? Dreadful? You hate them? Sure you do. Bulges are uncomfortable, they totally make us squirm. Fortunately, fashion designers figured it all out and came up with what is called shapewear. Just as you heard it, wear and shape.
Finding shapewear is as easy as Hello. The intrigue raises when you’re trying it on and ultimately buying it. As this type of undergarment is created to hide or attenuate the unwanted bulges, you can see how delicate the whole thing is. If you’ve ever found yourself in the difficulty of choosing the right shapewear, let’s go together through this guide on shapewear fitting.
1. First of all, shapewear must be comfortable. If it’s not, ditch it. Also, if your skin bulges where the fabric and body meet, toss it. And highly important is to sit, stand and bend without feeling any discomfort. If the fabric is loose, put it back on the shelf.
2. If you’re trying on a body for a full body shape, check the bra size. The body size should match your usual bra size.
6. Oh the tummies…most women have tummy issues. Tummy shapewear resembles to a brief style panty and bares additional support for smoothing the tummy. They come in small, medium and large sizes. It’s important to purchase the right size for you.
7. Waists that need a bit of resize can be smoothened by what it’s called also a Waist. This kind of shapewear has a waistband that reaches the bottom of the bra. According to your waist size, you can choose out of small, medium and large sizes. Only when you try it on, you can really see how it fits. No matter what you do, don’t make the purchase if the waist is too tight. It won’t do you any good and it will look terrible.
a. Light control excludes binding and only smoothens and shapes the body.
b. Moderate control has more spandex and offers more support than light shapewear. The advantage is that you can wear it comfortably up to 9 hours, which is good news, especially if you compare it to firm and extra control.
c. Firm control is for women who have serious bulge issues and need to keep it under control. They offer great support, but I’ll be honest, you can’t wear it the entire day. It’s rather uncomfortable in a long run.
d. Extra firm support is the highest you get. This is a sure way towards an almost perfect shape. But don’t kid yourself, wearing it will be quite a challenge. Still, it becomes sort of natural after a while.
The most important thing about shapewear is that if you put it on wrong, it’s a disaster waiting to happen. Best way to do it is to step into the legs and pull it up to the point where you would like to start shaping the body. Pull it over your upper body and you’re done.
Don’t forget to check if the shapewear feels comfortable while sitting up, sitting down, bending over and walking around.
Now that our time is up, I bid you a good time shopping!
