Does your #shapewear roll down or ride up? Is there a way to prevent that from happening? We know how frustrating it can be when you keep on tugging, adjusting, and pulling down your shapewear.
Shapewear are designed to support women and so they celebrate their shape and wear confidence in any outfit. If your shapewear is preventing you to be carefree because of the roll down and ride up, then read to discover how to make it stop.
Why does roll down happen?
Shapewear rolls down or up when you’re not wearing the right size and shapewear style to fit your body type. That is why it’s not ideal to wear shapewear that’s too tight or too loose.
Knowing how to get your accurate measurements is the key to getting the perfect fit. Check our complete size guide on how to get your shapewear measurements here.
How to stop rolling down or riding up?
1. Put on your shapewear correctly
Never rush when putting on your shapewear. Make sure you pull it high enough and smooth out any rolls or creases before you put on your clothes.
Tip: Avoid applying lotion on areas where your shapewear sits since lotion can make your skin greasy.
2. Choose shapewear with a non-slip silicone strip
The stay-put silicone strip around the waistband grips onto the skin and prevents it from rolling down.

3. Choose shapewear with straps
Get over-the-shoulder shapewear that offers more support by wrapping over the arm to smooth the tummy and waist, without any chance of rolling down.
