Who doesn’t love being cinched in at the hips, waist, and thighs? I know we do! Covergirl shapewear can transform any shape for extra confidence and a whole lot of sass in an outfit. When done properly, of course. There are a few shapewear mistakes many women make that we’d like to address. But hey, don’t worry if you’re wearing your shapewear wrong. We all did at some point and it only takes a few tweaks to get the right one. The following mistakes should be avoided at all costs for proper wear and optimal confidence.
If you experience your shapewear constantly rolling up or down, you’re most likely wearing the wrong size. Size does matter when picking out shapewear and the trick is to try things on. When trying on shapewear, be sure to move around in it. Sit down and walk around to assess whether it fits or not. Pick the size that works to rock what you’ve got.
Pick shapewear for a specific goal in mind. Do not buy shapewear targeted for the thighs when you are working on controlling the tummy during the day. Many women make the mistake of buying shapewear to shape the booty but instead end up flattening it altogether. Finding the right shapewear that fits your body is key.
If you’re planning on wearing something sheer, prepare to pick the right shapewear for your skin tone. Wearing darker shapewear with darker outerwear works well. However, dark shapewear with lighter outerwear just doesn’t work.
Just like we clean our underwear, we should be cleaning our shapewear. Since shapewear has direct contact with your skin, you should be washing them after each use for proper hygiene. To protect the elasticity of the shapewear, avoid the dryer and hang dryer instead. They will last longer and you will avoid having to always replace your shapewear.
It can be tempting to buy a product that looks great and maybe feels great, too. However, when it comes to shapewear, reading the reviews from other women is so important. We know that not every woman is created equal, but there might be valuable information in those reviews. Feedback from the community is very helpful as it might help determine which size or type of shapewear to choose.
