Shapewear is an essential part of every woman’s wardrobe. It can be used at any time for the purpose of shaping and smoothing your figure. Whether you need to wear it under a dress or just want to feel more comfortable in your everyday clothes, shapewear can help you look and feel your best. So, here’s how to choose shapewear.
When choosing shapewear, you will need to consider the type of garment you are looking for: whether it is a bodysuit or a pair of shorts, as well as if you require any other features such as tummy control or crotchless panties.
One of the most important things to consider when purchasing shapewear is your body shape. Shapewear is designed to smooth out lumps and bumps and make you look more streamlined. Unfortunately, many women don’t know what type of shapewear will be best for them. So they end up buying the wrong type of shapewear and then return it later on, which is a waste of time and money.
Shapewear should be chosen based on your body type and not just by what looks good on other women. For example, if you have large hips and thighs, you may want to look at a slimming girdle or something similar that will help slim down those areas that need it most.
If you’re smaller around the middle but have larger breasts, a bustier could be ideal for you. It will compress your chest while it lifts up your breast tissue so that they appear fuller than normal without having to wear a bra underneath!

What type of shapewear do you want?
There are two main types of shapewear: body-shaping and high-waist. Body-shaping shapewear is made from a mesh fabric that provides compression and smoothes the lines of your body. It’s often used under clingy clothing to create a smooth silhouette. High-waist shapewear has an elastic band that runs around the waist and works best under loose clothing.
What level of control do you need?
There are four different levels of control: light, moderate, firm and maximum control. Light control offers very little shaping while maximum control offers maximum support as well as tummy taming. If you’re looking for something in between those two extremes, moderate or firm might be right for you.
How far up your thighs does it go?
If you’re looking for something that goes all the way up to your waistline, look for a product labeled high-rise. Otherwise, it should stop just below your belly button (or higher). This will prevent chafing or discomfort during wear because it doesn’t rub against sensitive skin.
