Shapewear: An Insider’s Guide


We are born into imperfectly perfect bodies in our own right. There are parts of it that we adore and others that we think could be better. Some of us desire a smaller waist, while others desire a bubble buttock. Then, of course, there is exercise, but there is also Shapewear till we can sweat it off in the gym!

Sometimes known as a woman’s best-kept secret, Shapewear helps you attain a pleasing silhouette in minutes. It’s exactly what it sounds like: an innerwear garment that helps you mold your body the way you want. It’s all up to you whether you want to enhance or conceal! There is something for everyone, regardless of body type: tiny, slender, or curvy.

Don’ts and Dos

Time to wear: Shapewear should be worn according to its level of compression. Low, medium, and high compression shapewear can be worn for 8-12 hours. Also, always listen to your body. If you need to go sooner, go for it!

Purchase the appropriate size: Smaller does not always imply better support. In addition, it is inconvenient and may cause long-term harm to your body. For the optimum fit, consult our sizing chart and customer reviews on our website.

Hygiene: Carefully read and follow the cleaning directions on the label. To ensure hygiene, always wear an undergarment or a panty liner with bottom wear shapewear. Sharing Shapewear is not a good idea.
