How to Pick the Best Shapewear for Your Body Type

Kim Kardashian

No one is ever satisfied with their body. I’m not satisfied with my body. Who is?! No matter what, without a doubt, we’ll always find something wrong with ourselves and you’re not the only one. No one is perfect even though we’d like to think Ryan Gosling is the most perfect specimen ever. Just remember, you’re beautiful just the way you are. I learned that from Bruno Mars.

It’s not like there’s nothing we can do about it either! What better way to show your confidence than just working with what you got. Thanks to, we have tips and tricks for you to pick the best shapewear for your body type.

For a better idea, what better way than to refer to a handful of iconic celebrities!
Got a small waist-to-hip ratio? Or even a full bust and broad shoulders? You’ll want a shapewear that will define your waistline.
Suggested looks: corsets & cinchers or shaping camis

Long and lean ladies with portions of your body similar in proportions, then you my friend, can refer to bubbly Cameron Diaz! Add some curves and definition to your body, girl!
Suggested looks: butt-enhancing shapers and cincher vests


We all know one of the queens of the hourglass look is Kim Kardashian. Any surprise there? What you want to do is smooth and define the curves you already own with your body shapewear!

Cue the Ginuwine’s “In Those Jeans” song because granted, you know how to work it with jeans! This body type has curvy hips and slimmer waists just like Queen B. For this, wear shapewear to create balance in your figure.
Suggested looks: thigh-slimming shapers or braless shaping tanks/camis

Opposite to Beyonce’s body type, all your magic happens on the top with your bust and broad shoulders. Most likely, you’ll have narrow hips as well. What you want to do is move the attention to the bottom.
Suggested looks: enhancing panties and shapers or full-body shapers.
