Types of Plus Size Shapewear and Buying Tips
At Classic Shapewear, we offer a wide selection of styles specifically catered to plus size beauties. Browsing through so many different solutions can take a toll even on the most enthusiastic shopper, so we’ve put together a few helpful shapewear buying tips and strategies to ensure that you get the results you expect.
Always check the measurements
Different brands mean different sizing charts, so don’t rely on guesswork when it comes to finding your right size. Review each garment’s sizing information for the most accurate fit, and don’t hesitate to size up as needed. No one knows the size but you, and a good fit is a flattering fit.
Consider your body’s unique needs
Are you looking for shapewear that whittles your waist, or are you focused more on your thighs and hips? Do you have a special occasion coming up that requires a special bra, or are you looking for an all-around body shaper that smoothes and defines your features? Knowing your exact needs will make your shopping experience much simpler, as many shapewear items target multiple issues in one smart design.
Buy the correct size for your frame
It’s so tempting to size down, and many people assume that tighter shapewear is a guaranteed way to look even slimmer in your clothing. The truth is that ill-fitting shapers aren’t going to fit correctly and are more likely to bunch or roll down in an unflattering display. Save yourself the discomfort and fuss by purchasing the size that reflects your proportions.
Become familiar with your options
Torsolettes, brasselettes and bralettes – oh my! So many options exist in the world of shapewear, and that’s a great thing! Multiple style variations can seem intimidating, however, when you’re not sure what each design is capable of or which piece is best for your individual goals. Sip a cup of coffee and unwind while browsing through the main styles featured on our site. To target specific concerns, click through our categories for various figure-shaping solutions like waist-cinchers, post-surgical garments, anti-cellulite technology and butt lifters.
Don’t sacrifice style or comfort
Shapewear should contour your body, not suffocate it! Look for soft and cozy fabrics like microfiber and cotton for a shaping solution that’s both effective and comfortable. We also offer sexy and stylish lingerie and clothing styles that shape your silhouette and your closet.
