Finding the right shapewear can be life changing! Seriously, it can change every aspect of your life. Let’s be honest here, how many times have you cancelled meeting up with someone because you felt a little insecure with how your body looked? We have all been there.
No matter what your weight or dress size or fitness level, we all need a little “pick-me-up” to give yourself a confidence boost just to get through your front door everyday. Let me share a little secret with you, those red carpet perfect celebrities you see strut their stuff at award shows or on TV shows, feel exactly the same way you do. But they are all wearing shapewear!
But if you are like me, purchasing shapewear can be as painful as getting a tooth pulled. Maybe you have purchased some in the past that left you feeling like a stuffed sausage instead of sexy and confident, so now it is collecting dust in the closet.
I must admit that the first time I purchased shapewear, I did everything wrong. I went to the store and a toothpick thin girl was attending to the lingerie department, so of course I wasn’t going to ask her how to conceal all of my wobbly bits. So I just grabbed something that I thought would help me and of course in order avoid the skinny girl, I didn’t try them on! That night it was an aerobic session just to squeeze myself into them. All evening I felt as if I was in a prison sentence that was rolling up and down.
After this traumatic experience, I decided to give body wear one more try, but this time I was going to order it online, so no pressure of feeling judged by this world’s so-called skinny people.
Whether you are a size 4 or a plus size, you should look good in what you wear and shapewear can help smooth out those lumps and bumps. But there is no need to waste your time looking at thousands of websites trying find the right shapewear for you, here are the three best websites for shapewear (at the best prices too).
All three of these websites offer completive prices, wide variety of different types of shapewear, practical advice on choosing the correct shapewear for your body and outfit.
The Shapermint Marketplace is actually one of my favorite websites for buying shapewear with an attitude. I love the fact that their models are “real women” with curves and not some fourteen year old shaped like an adolescent boy. The philosophy behind Shapermint is that they believe that every woman has the right to feel sexy and confident.
Also, on Shapermint they are only dedicated to intimate shapewear for women and are experts on the subject. All of their products, including their bodysuits, leggings, butt lifters and camis come with an easy-to-follow size chart, to ensure you get the correct size.
Shapermint reviews have a following on social media of more than 500,000 happy customers. You will love the fact that on their website reviews of Shapermint products include actual pictures of real woman (like me) wearing shapewear. It is a heart-warming to find a website with real reviews.
Bare Necessities is dedicated to everything related to women’s intimate wear and recently they are trying to break into the shapewear market. They offer a wide range of shapewear products from a number of different brands.
One of the aspects that I like about their website are the prices but all of their models look like they haven’t been eating for weeks and if you want to see what they look like on real women, they send you to a special website dedicated to plus size woman. I am not plus size just a size 16, don’t make me feel bad about buying something designed to make me feel good about myself.
All of their products come with an easy-to follow size chart and reviews, but not too many pictures of the customers actually wearing the product they purchased.
We all love shopping on macys.com because basically we can find everything here, including the kitchen sink. But how does Macy’s Marketplace for shapewear rate to the other websites? Again, the models they use to display their shapewear, don’t have an ounce of fat on their bodies, unless you go to the plus size section.
Macy’s offers one of the widest selections of shapewear available, but they don’t tend to restock certain items, so finding the correct size can be a challenge. The star rating system makes shopping easy to check out the reviews. As they sell a variety of brands, some of the sizing charts can differ and be a challenge to understand.
