February 8, 2022 | Shapermint Team

New Post

With more women embracing their curves, we’re happy to be part of their journey of self-love and body positivity. One of the keys to this fantastic, ongoing change in mindset is the newest technology in shaping undergarments or SupportiveWear which have helped empower all of us to celebrate our shape and wear confidence!

We know that ordering the right shapewear size online can be a little confusing, so on your first ever shapewear experience, we’re here to help you make it fun and easy.

As a first-time shapewear buyer, being familiar with the different styles and functions will help you in choosing the right one. You can start off with supportive outerwear or Core Essentials.
