How to Choose Plus Size Shapewear for Yourself

Every body, no matter its size and type is beautiful. Women should have the chance to feel confident and sexy no matter what they are wearing. Say goodbye to baggy clothes and ill-fitting outfits. Now is the time to start embracing your curves and celebrate your body shape. Besides stocking up your lingerie drawer with supportive bras and panties, it should also be filled with great shapewear pieces that are designed to boost your confidence.  

Shapewear is an amazing and functional garment that not only is the solution to a smooth base underneath our clothes but it is also something that helps to firm and lift our bodies in all the right places. Much like searching for the right bra, choosing the right shapewear or post surgical compression garment is not an easy task. Selecting plus-size shapewear has its own set of challenges.

How To Pick The Right Plus Size Shapewear?

Ahead are some of the tips on how to choose the seamless body shaper for curvy women that will help to accentuate the curves. 

1. Knowing your measurements

The first thing you need to know is to find out your measurement. Get the shapewear size that you would normally wear for your underwear. If you are still unsure, remember to check the sizing chart provided by the shapewear brand to choose the right size according to your measurements. 

2. What Is Your Body Shape

Knowing what is your body shape will help you narrow down your options for your unique shape. Body shapes can be categorized as apple, pear, hourglass, rectangle and strawberry. 

3.  Pick The Support Level You Want

Once you know your body shape and measurements, the next thing is to decide on the compression level you want. Shapewear comes in three different compression levels such as light, medium and firm. 

Light control shapewear are pieces that will smooth the areas you want and it is something that you can wear every day such as this high waisted panty below.

Medium control shapewear will add a bit of contour to the body and smooths the tummy like this Seamless Sculpting Bodysuit.

Firm compression shapewear is usually worn for special occasions such as a formal dinner or underneath a wedding dress or gowns. Such pieces offer more contouring to the body shape such as a waist trainer wrap
