Now that you’ve found the perfect shapewear for your wardrobe, it’s time to make sure that each piece of Covergirl Shapewear retains its form and elasticity. As with all underwear and lingerie, there is a way to care for your shapewear in such a way that makes sure that the elasticity and support last. It can get a bit tricky and easy to overlook! Luckily, Covergirl Shapewear is here to help you with these essential shapewear care tips!
One of the best ways to ensure that your shapewear not only lasts but ensures that it retains its elasticity and support is to have enough articles of shapewear rotating in your wardrobe. If you have a specific style that you really love and it’s your go-to then you may want to purchase two or three in that style. It’s also a good idea to have a variety of shapewear; some that target your thighs, your tummy, and even one for when you decide to wear shapewear with skirts and dresses.
Not only will you look great, but you’ll also feel incredibly comfortable the whole week while you’re at it!
While you can and should wash your shapewear, there is a little more to it than just throwing your shapewear in the washing machine and calling it a day. You will want you to make sure that you wash your shapewear according to the directions on the tag to prevent from damaging the fabric material.
Washing your shapewear is quite easy, it just requires you to pay attention to the smaller details.
Like with any piece of clothing, the longer that you wear it the more stretched out that it becomes. This can be an issue with shapewear because you want it to fit snug and provide support. Washing your shapewear after every use will help the fibers retain their elasticity. Make sure that you don’t wear your shapewear more than a few (2) times in between uses.
Handwash your shapewear to make sure that you do not damage the fabrics. If your washing machine has a “gentle” or “delicates” setting, those will also be acceptable for washing your Covergirl Shapewear.
When washing your shapewear, you will want to buy a gentle detergent. There are specialty lingerie detergents that you can use on all of your underwear garments and shapewear that is well worth the investment!
In order to care for the elasticity of the shapewear, you will want to hang dry or air dry them after you wash your shapewear. Dryers are notoriously hard on elastic and latex materials so it is best to avoid them.
