Compression Shapewear
Getting the right size is the key to comfortable and satisfying compression shapewear. This is one piece of advice women always offer at the beginning of their shapewear journey. However, this is easier said than done. Since compression shapewear comes in all styles and brands, you may find that you need to use a variety of sizing guides. Sometimes you may need to choose based on clothing size, others may follow the M/L/XL range. Or you may need to specify in inches, centimeters, or even bra size.

Whatever you do, don't fall into the trap of wearing a dress that is too small. Hopefully, the compression will allow you to wear a smaller dress, making it more likely to get lumps and lumps where you don't want them to. Much better to buy at your true size and get a lovely smooth silhouette. 

Likewise, don't worry about discomfort as a counter-productive, big-ticket purchase. Modern compression shapewear fabric has just the right amount of stretch to keep you comfortable in a garment that fits your size. Get bigger and the clothes are more likely to shift or roll off. The Sheinshaper compression shapewear, for example, has three levels of compression where you can find the balance between comfort and the results you want to achieve.
Measurement Skills


Make sure to measure the correct location! This sounds obvious, but it's easy to measure too high or too low and end up with a completely inaccurate number. For underbust or bra sizes, measure directly under the breasts and round to the nearest whole inch. Your bust should be measured while wearing a supportive but unpadded bra. Find the waist point by bending slightly to one side and finding where the crease of the body is.


Use a suitable measuring tape and make sure it lies flat against your body when measuring. Get someone to help if you need it, it pays to get accurate measurements! If you don't have a tape measure, use a piece of string and measure with a ruler.

Clothing Size

Waist-focused shapewear, such as camisoles, briefs, or shapewear shorts, are often sold with a dress sizing guide. If you tend to struggle between dress sizes, choose the dress size that corresponds to your waist measurement. So if you're choosing between shaper shorts in a size 14-16 or 18-20 and tend to hover between a standard size 16-18, measure your waist only and consult the brand's sizing guide.

Bra Size

Anything that involves cup sizes, such as corsets or underwired catsuits, will use your bra size to guide you. That's why it's crucial to check your bra size before choosing. All women's bra sizes will vary throughout their lives, so you should check your measurements regularly, especially when shopping for new items.


If you want to use compression shapewear to enhance or change your body shape, the key is not only to choose the style but also to choose the right size. This is especially tricky for women with apple and pear shapes. If you were born with different dress sizes for different parts of your body, what would you choose when it came to compression shapewear? The trick here is by measuring the parts of your body that are stressed. So, for example, a pear-shaped woman who wants to compress her thighs should choose shaping shorts that fit her hip size.
