HOW TO CHOOSE SHAPEWEAR/BODY SHAPERS

Shapewear is a wonderful thing that all women should take advantage of – but many don't! Why? Because they simply don't know how to find the right shapewearthat fits them as it should.

Choosing the wrong piece of shapewear can actually make your outfit look worse and completely defeat the purpose of wearing it in the first place. From choosing the wrong colors and sizes, to experiencing bulging at the top or bottom – these are all no-no’s and can be avoided with a little bit of knowledge and shapewear buying know-how.Luckily, ladies, we're here for you. We've done the research and found some tried and true methods to finding shapewear not only fits you right, but helps you look stunning whether it's for a night on the town or everyday wear

Follow these tips on buying the right shapewear and you’ll not only look amazing, but you’ll feel amazing too.

Tip 1: Know the purpose of your shopping trip.

Are you buying shapewear for everyday wear or a special occasion? The kind you'll need depends on why you're buying it and when you'll wear it. Keep this in mind before you head out so you know just what you're looking for and don't have to sort through as many options.

Tip 2:Choose therightcolor.

Shapewear most commonly comes in white, black,pink or nude – although some designers are now coming out with bolder colours in case you're feeling a little daring! If you're looking for something to go under a sheer garment, nude will be your best bet. If your outfit is a dark colour or a thick material, your colour of shapewear won't matter quite as much.

Tip 3: Get professionally measured.

Treat yourself to a trip to the mall or specialty department store to get professionally measured for your shapewear or visit our store NEXT SKIN. A majority of women are wearing the wrong size of shapewear so it ends up not doing its job – it either looks frumpy or is too tight so it's showing problem spots, even though it's designed to mask them. Spend a bit of extra time to get measured so you can be sure you're wearing the right size.

Tip 4: Identify your problem areas.

Shapewear comes in many different types designed to cover different areas of the body. Here are a few of the most common:

    • Body shapers – These “all-in-one” garments are used to help tone the whole body from the chest to the hips and everything in between. Body shapers are often purchased based on your bra size, so knowing the correct size is especially important.

    • Bust shapewear – This type of shapewear enhances your bust more than a push-up bra. It helps give you support (and a boost) while looking natural. It's also purchased based on bra size.

    • Thigh shapewear – Choose this shapewear to help tone your tummy, hips, and bottom. You can buy control briefs in a variety of lengths ranging from very short to mid-thigh. Some even include a band at the bottom so they don't roll or shift.

    • Shaping panties – These panties help flatten your hips and tummy while supporting your bottom for a natural look without pinching. You can choose this type of garment based on your normal panty size, waist and hip measurements.Waist shapewear – Waist shapewear is a great way to help define your waist and give it a smooth contour. The most common style is a shaping brief that extends right below your bra line to tone your bottom, tummy, and waist. You'll need to know your normal panty size, waist and hip measurements to get the right fit.

Tip 5:Try several brands.

Just like any other part of your wardrobe, shapewear can vary quite a bit by brand. Even if you've been professionally measured, make sure you try on at least a few different brands to find the one that fits you best before making a final decision.

Tip 6: Avoid white.

Buy beige,black or pink, but not white,.Even under a white T-shirt, beige looks better.

Tip 7: Pick the right fabric.

Consider the fabric of your outer clothes. Cotton may cling to a hosiery-type shaper,so opt for shapewear of a slicker fabric, like a polyester/spandex blend. Clothing fabric such as silk or clingy jersey requires seamless shapewear to make it invisible.

Make sure shapewear fits correctly. Since shapewear garments are designed to cinch certain body parts and fit smoothly over your skin, it's important that the shapewear you select is the right size and will not make you feel uncomfortable. Make sure all seams and panels are straight in the bustier or bodysuit you purchase.
