5 Shapewear Style Tips For Petite To Curvy Women

December 8, 2022 | Shapermint Team

New Post

The world of #shapewear can be intimidating. There's no way to know where to start with so many different styles, fabrics, and cuts. When it comes to shapewear, it can take a lot of work to know where to start. Should you choose a control brief, a shaper panty, or perhaps a bodysuit? And what about the different fabrics? It all depends on your body type and the occasion you wear it. The most important thing is that you feel good in what you're wearing – and that comes from knowing your shape and how shapewear can help.

Shapewear is a real confidence booster when it comes to our wardrobe. From creating a smooth silhouette under that favorite dress to smoothing out your figure, shapewear is the total confidence booster for women of all shapes and sizes.

Shapewear Style Tips

Here are the 5 shapewear style tips for your body.

1. Get the Right Shapewear Size

One common mistake why women don’t get the most out of their shapewear is because of the sizing. Either it’s too big, or too small—resulting in an unflattering fit to your target areas. Each shapewear has its own sizing guide, so it’s a must to get your measurement and check the individual size chart. Check our complete guide to getting your measurements for shapewear here.
