To ensure that you get the most out of owning a shapewear, be wary of these do's and don’ts:



Check with Your Doctor which Shapewear You Need

Whether you’re given birth or had a liposuction, it's always best to get your doctor's opinion, especially as to which body shaper you should use. There is body shaper  that has high compression level that may or may not be good for you.

 Wash Your Shapewear as Instructed

There is specific shapewear that needs extra care such as those with special stretchable fabrics, lace, and intricate designs that might get ruined easily if you wash it through the washing machine.

Just like this Plus Size Lace Bodysuit that needs to be handwashed because the lace might get entangled with other clothes in the washing machine, therefore ruining the gorgeous design.

It's also best not to use bleach on black shapewear as this may cause the colors to fade. At the same time, avoid ironing but choose to steam instead.

Wear Shapewear Depending on the The Body Part You Want to Shape

There are different body shapers that cater to different body parts. Although there's a full bodyshaper, you have to ask yourself whether you really need long-sleeves, shaping shorts and tummy cincher all in one.

If you simply want to cinch your waist, you can wear a tummy control shaper or a post surgical compression garment. If you want to look extra fine in a pair of fitted jeans, then shaping shorts or butt lifters would work best.

Getting an all-in-one shapewear may not always be a good idea especially if you have to wear mini skirts or dresses. This is why it's important to know what works best for your body by identifying which part of your body needs a bit of support.
