Finding Your Perfect Shapewear

Finding Your Perfect Shapewear

Love it or Hate it, there are times when nothing else will do…

Read these Top 3 Tips from The Bra Guru on finding your

Perfect Shapewear!


Contrary to popular belief, Shapewear, will not help you drop a dress size… and choosing an incorrect size can only have an opposite effect and is sure to give you a night of indigestion. Nor…is it only reserved for the fuller figure.

Shapewear has the power to enhance and it can be comfortable, I Promise. So if you are not finding it comfortable, perhaps it’s time to look at some tips that will turn that dreaded circulation thief into your undercover best friend!


1. Don’t Buy Shapewear that is too small

Gosh, have we been getting this wrong for years?
Shapewear firms up your current size and in order to create a streamlined look, you want to go with a comfortable size. Start with your current brief size.

Too Small


2. How to put on Shapewear without dislocating your shoulder

Maybe a mild muscle strain is more accurate, even when you buy your right size, it can be a trifle tricky to get on.  Our recommendation is to step into your shapewear rather than trying to get it over your head. You should step in one leg after the other, then it’s a steady pull up.

Painful Shoulder


3. Choose the right style

If your tummy is your biggest concern, then control briefs are what you are after, if you are wearing a figure-hugging dress, then a shaper dress or shorts will smooth out any lumps or bumps.
There are definitely benefits to having a reliable pair in your cupboard when the occasion arrives. Here are my top recommendations:

Breast Changes during Pregnancy

Breast Changes during Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a time in your life when everything changes. Your life is about to evolve in the most real and wonderful way, however a lot of preparation and consideration is involved as your special day approaches. The first thing that happens most commonly is that our breasts get very sensitive and can increase by an entire cup size from one week to the next. It is quite extraordinary. Unfortunately we often fail to notice this as a remarkable event because all of our focus is drawn to our bulging breasts in an all too small bra. It is at this very moment when the words “bra size” might come into play. It may go something like this: “What on earth?”, “So what is my bra size?”, or “How do I find out what my bra size is?” and “Why do things have to change?” and then “Argh, @#@!,*8%#!!”. All a very normal part of this process even though it may not feel like it at the time.

When you come to the realization that you now have to go bra shopping and you do not even know where to begin, this is the moment that you should seek out the help of a professional Bra fitting specialist.

A lot of ladies ask me if it is worth investing so much in a bra for pregnancy. This is such a personal question and only one that you can answer. I know from personal experience that when I finally came to get my bras it was worth every single cent, When I fell pregnant with my second son, it was the first thing I budgeted for, so it all becomes about planning.

You don’t have to buy the most expensive bra when you are pregnant, but you should consider the importance of finding the comfort of a perfect fitting bra. You will be buying a bra that has been designed to give you the most essential support during your pregnancy and nursing. These bras are made from superior quality fabrics. They are hypoallergenic and allow your skin to breathe. They are also complete with “grow with me” technology that is unique to the Maternity range. It is this technology that allows the wires and fabrics to expand and support your breast during this time of change. If anything, it is important to spread the message that knowing your correct bra size is essential, and getting the right support will help you to look and feel better. When both of these elements is right, we can accomplish anything. 

“There is no role in life more essential and more eternal than that of motherhood.”
