Is Spanx better than other shapewear

7 tips for shapewear

Shapewear has long since nothing to do with underwear that you prefer to hide at the bottom of your wardrobe. Quite the opposite: the figure-shaping underwear has become a popular helper for small problem areas and helps you to optimally showcase your figure and your curves. We give you tips about shapewear and which clothes go with it.

1. Tighten properly

Tight shapewear is a little more difficult to put on than normal clothes. Shapewear is not very elastic in the high shape level, which results in its strongly shaping character. That's why our tip for you is: Always get into shapewear from above. Regardless of whether it is a panty, shirt, body or shaping dress. This makes it much easier for you to put them on and the shapewear fits snugly on your body.

2. Buy the right size

Shapewear has to fit really tight and cut off your breath? Is that why you buy your shape underwear one size smaller than your clothing size? No, do not do that! When buying your Shape underwear, pay attention to the size you normally wear. Only then will the underwear fit you perfectly and you can also benefit from the shaping effect in a comfortable way. If you want to increase the modeling effect, buy shaping underwear with a high shape level instead of one size smaller.

3. The slip question

Are you planning an evening in a sexy mini dress or are you invited to a wedding and want to wear your great tight shift dress? Your first reach in the linen drawer is for the tight string, after all, your underwear should match the style of the dress and not cut into anything? Rather not. Because a string, possibly made of lace, can quickly be seen under a tight dress. Reach for shaping high-waisted panties. It is seamlessly processed and hides small belly curves perfectly. Pulling in your stomach all day is no longer on your list at these events and you can score points with your great body shape.

4. What am I wearing underneath?

There is a simple answer to that: Nothing! You should wear shapewear next to your skin. Underpants, including strings, have no place under shapewear, because the edges would show through. The only exception is shaping dresses. You should wear seamless panties underneath.

5. Only for small problem areas?

Shaping underwear is suitable for every body. At ONMYSKIN you can find them in all sizes, from XS to XXL. Because even slim women have one or two small flaws that they would like to hide with figure-shaping underwear. Shape lingerie offers fuller bodies the perfect opportunity to clearly define their feminine curves and transform them into a great feminine silhouette. Women with cellulite problems also benefit from shaping underwear. And we women all know that even slim women can be affected by these dents. So, into your shape lingerie and into your pencil skirts, bandage dresses and figure-hugging outfits!

6. Shapewear Problems

Nothing is more embarrassing than a shapewear speed camera. To avoid this faux pas, you should make sure, for example, with a short dress that the legs of your shaping pants are a good deal shorter. Because when you sit down, your dress slips up and, whoosh, the shaping pants flash out. Make sure you choose the right color when choosing your shaping underwear. We recommend nude tones under transparent fabrics. You can choose black shapingwear with black clothes. Very smooth fabrics such as silk or viscose stick to the smallest bumps, so when it comes to shapewear, always rely on top processing with laser cut without rough spots or noticeable seams.

7. Proper care

Shapewear is best washed in the washing machine without fabric softener on a wool or hand wash cycle at 30 degrees. Then let the laundry dry on the line. Higher temperatures quickly put stress on the elastic material and could damage your shapewear, just like the dryer.
