  • Shapewear Style Guide

    At Brastop, we really love curves, and we’re on a mission to make you love yours too!
    For the ultimate in confidence boosting enhancement, shapewear solutions are the perfect way to control and sculpt your figure, whatever your shape or size. Shaping lingerie works by targeting a specific area and smoothing it to create a silhouette, and, as such, there are several tips for choosing and using it. Take a look at this dedicated shapewear style guide for our best tips to shapewear heaven.

  • Shapewear Types
  • Shapewear Types

    The sky is the limit with regards to types of shapewear available. From briefs with slight control to full body shapers, there is a shapewear solution for pretty much every situation out there!

    With regard to specific figure enhancements, control slips generally focus on the tummy and bust while waist cinchers focus on the hips and lower stomach. For the thighs, a selection of shaping tights and shorts are available in many different colours.

  • Shapewear Sizing Rules

    Sizing down in your shapewear will give extra firmness and better curves right? Sadly not... In fact, as with buying a bra that’s too small, doing this will cause unwanted ‘muffin-tops’, not to mention high levels of discomfort if you’re wearing the lingerie for an extended period of time.

    Due to the construction of shapewear, it will feel adequately firm when you buy it in your normal underwear size so you should start by ordering this and go from there. When trying on your new lingerie for fit make sure that you try sitting down and walking around in it to ensure that it’s comfortable and that it stays in control of its necessary areas!

  • Shapewear Sizing Rules
  • Choose the Right Firmness for your Needs

    To make things slightly more complicated, shapewear solutions are generally available in light, medium or firm constriction. At the next level, medium shapewear gives a smooth line to your tummy, thighs or bust. For slight shaping with very low levels of firmness, light products are perfectly adequate. They won’t drastically change your figure but they are good for summer as they are not too heavy.
