Whether new to shapewear or a long time customer sometimes we all make mistakes when shopping for shaping garments. At Curveez® we always want to make sure you are happy with your purchase and feel great in any of our styles, so we made of list of common mistakes to avoid when buying shapewear.
Buying The Wrong Size
Buying the wrong size is the most frequent mistake many women make when buying shapewear. Women sometimes buy a size that is too small thinking it will make them look slimmer, but it ends up being too tight and very uncomfortable. A second issue is buying a size without checking the size chart, which may also result in uncomfortable and ill-fitting garments. Both problems can easily be solved by measuring yourself and reviewing measurements on the chart before choosing your size. Shapewear is specially designed with targeted compression zones that match the body measurements listed on the chart, so it is important to know your correct size. Not sure where to start if new to shapewear? Try a lower compression style to help you get more familiar with shaping garments before moving up to higher levels. Whatever style you choose we want you to feel fabulous, look great and above all be comfortable! TRY IT:
Not The Right Style For Your Body
Women's bodies are different, and we all don't use the same variety of shaping styles. Start with identifying what areas of the body you need support to help narrow down your choices. Want more cinched waistline, lifted butt or smooth legs? Curveez® have you covered. Also consider your height, shorter styles will work on most body lengths while longer ones won't work as well on some petite frames. Only you know what works best on your body, and even if a style that doesn't quite work, we offer hassle-free exchanges.
Having The Wrong Expectation
It is important to understand how shapewear fits, expect it to be snug against the body smoothing some areas while lifting others, it is never meant to fit loose. These styles temporarily alter the wearer's body shape and may take some getting used to if you haven't worn these types of garments before. Our compression levels are:
light shaping ideal for all day wear
conceals some bulges while keeping you comfortable every day
for a more toned look keeping targeted areas in place for slimmed figure
use for maximum support and body sculpting compression. Knowing how much support you want and understanding what they do will help you make the right choice for your shapewear needs
Not Considering The Occasion
We all want to put the past few years in our rearview mirror! It's time to go out to and be social again with family and friends saying goodbye (mostly) to sweatpants. Curveez® has styles for any occasion in different compression levels for going back to the gym, a night on the town with friends or date night with your significant other. When trying to decide which style to buy consider what you are using it for and if applicable under what type of clothes. Do you need maximum comfort, maximum support, or something in between? Will your shapewear need to disappear under your clothes when wearing more body-hugging designs? Answering these questions and others will help to enhance your wardrobe choices and shapewear experience helping to make you look your best.
