It is January, and it means it is time to prepare for the new year. And let’s all be honest, we are all happy to say goodbye to 2021 (and its 2020 hangover). We are focused on starting this year with enthusiasm and optimism, and a desire to make sure we look our best at all times! But if you are anything like most of us, this pandemic has resulted in some of us picking up a few pounds. But don’t worry. With a slight refresh to your wardrobe, you will start to feel like your old self again, regardless of what you are wearing. How you may ask? With the right shapewear!
ShapewearFor All Occasions
Shapewear is not just for those special occasions, and 2022 can become your year to embrace shapewear for all the outfits in your wardrobe. Yes, you can invest in shapewear for that little black dress or a sleek ballgown. But you might not know about shapewear that you can wear to the gym (like high-waisted control briefs and sports bras) that will give you a better shape while you are working out and more support. Or shapewear shorts, a corset, or tankini can also be worn under workwear clothes to provide you with a tailored look transforming those everyday outfits into “office chic”. Here is more information on how to choose and care for your shapewear.
The Size Trap
If you have decided to buy a few shapewear items to start your new year, you must ensure you are buying the right size. It is common to make the mistake of buying one size every time, but these sizes often differ when it comes to the garment type or even the brand. This means you should be looking at the exact measurements on the shapewear items and then compare these measurements to what you feel comfortable wearing to make sure you buy the right fit. Keep in mind, that if you have shapewear that has started to stretch out, now is the right time to invest in a few new pairs. There’s a high demand for plus size shapewear, for more information google search plus size shapewear UK.
Caring For Your Shapewear
If you have never owned shapewear before, you might need a bit of advice on how to care for these garments. And even if you already own shapewear, keep reading as you may have forgotten a few things! To begin with, avoid overwashing your shapewear. Try and wear the garment two to three times (if possible) before you decide to wash it. It is also much better to rather hand wash your shapewear, but when you are in a rush you can also wash these garments in your washing machine. If you do put them in a machine, first place the garments in a protector or a lingerie bag.
These are netted bags that allow soap and water to flow through, and enough space so that the shapewear moves around to agitate the grime and dirt. The protective layer will stop the shapewear from getting damaged or snagging on something else in the machine like a zip.
Use a gentle and cold cycle to make sure your shapewear lasts for as long as possible. One important tip to remember is to never put your shapewear in your tumble dryer! Rather let the garment dry flat, or you can hang them up. When you pack them away make sure they are in their original or natural shape to avoid misshaping or stretching the garment. We hope this information will help you to choose just the right shapewear for your needs.
Always remember that you should be looking at the exact measurements on the shapewear items and then compare these measurements to what you feel comfortable wearing to make sure you buy the right fit. Keep in mind, that if you have shapewear that has started to stretch out, now is the right time to invest in a few new pairs.
