Shapermint Guide To Buying Shapewear

More and more, women of all shapes and sizes are embracing their curves with confidence and body-positivity. One of the keys to this fantastic, ongoing change in mindset is the newest technology in shaping undergarments, which have helped empower all of us to feel more confident and (most importantly!) feel more comfortable in any outfit of our choosing.

But knowing how to order the right size of shapewear online can be a little confusing, especially the first time around. And there's nothing more disappointing than finally receiving your awesome shapewear in the mail, only to discover that it simply doesn’t work for you.

At Shapermint, our number one priority is that you enjoy our products, so we wanted to make the process a little less daunting! So, we put together a detailed guide featuring expert tips to get you started. With these useful insights, you’ll be better able to order with confidence!

Rethink Shapewear

Shapewear for Rookies

Shapewear is no longer just for special occasions - it can give us that extra va-va-voom each and every day, and there are so many options available. As you embark on your shapewear adventure for the first time, it’s important to get familiar with all the different styles at your disposal. From shaper shorts and butt lifters to camis, the sky’s the limit, and there really is an option for every occasion and need.

Do your research!

Shapewear do your research

If you’re reading this post...yay, you! Before placing your order for the first time, it’s so worth it to take some time and browse our website: read our blog posts and guides so you know exactly what are the best options for your needs. There is no one-size fits all approach to shapewear, so this is an important step!

Size Matters

Shapewear right size

It’s true! Ordering the right size can make all the difference. The wrong size can leave you feeling squished, frumy and uncomfortable. Take the time to look over our sizing guides which show you how to correctly measure yourself for an ideal fit.

Quick tip! If you are between sizes, we recommend going a size up if you're looking for more comfort, or a size down if you're looking for more compression.

Still confused? Have an actual human being help you out - you can contact us right here. We'd love to help you out to make sure your first time shopping for shapewear is a positive one!

Know Your Shaping Goals

Shapewear need to smooth lift

Want a generally smoothed-out look? Or maybe you have a skin-tight dress you want to feel more confident in. Whatever your priorities, it’s important to have a general idea of which outfits you’ll wear your shapewear with.

Quick tip! Go for extra compression if you're into bodycon dresses and pencil skirts. Likewise, check out Empetua shaper panty for feeling tummy-comfortable during the day or some good quality Butt lifter shorts to get your thighs in check all day long.
