Why spend good money on occasion outfits - a fancy dress for a wedding or birthday bash, only to have your shapewear let you down. Shapewear is designed to help you look your best and boost your confidence. Shapewear roll-down is the fastest way to undo all that good work. But how can you stop it from happening?

Our tips will help you spend less time in the loos fixing your look and more time tearing up the dancefloor.

Why does shapewear roll down?

Why, oh, why? The unsightly shapewear roll-down also feels mighty uncomfortable under your otherwise stylish outfit. If you’re wondering why it’s happening to you, it could be down to your choice of shapewear garment. The wrong size piece can not only lead to roll-down but in some cases, lumpy or ‘bubble legs’. Here are some tips on how to stop your shapewear from rolling down.

How to stop your shapewear from rolling down

Buy shapewear in your actual size

You may be inclined to size down in your shapewear, for a smoother, sleeker look. However, wearing the wrong size only makes the situation worse. Your shapewear may roll up or down because it’s too small and therefore too tight on your body. It can also create a lumpy look from overflow where the shapewear meets the skin.

If you’ve chosen a piece that’s too long, it may not grip as well, which also causes roll-down. When buying shapewear, the best place to start is always with your true size and take it from there.

Take your time getting dressed

Don’t rush the preparation. Take all the time you need to put your shapewear on, making sure your skin is clean and dry. Allow your body to settle into the garment, helping to create a sleek look to last all night.

Get crafty with pins

If you’re happy to get creative, you can learn how to hook shapewear to your bra. This technique works best if your garment has a crotch opening to help manage your loo breaks throughout the night.

If your bra has no hooks, you can use safety pins to securely attach the shapewear to the band of your bra to help prevent rolling. Make sure once you’ve hooked the safety pins in place, they’re lying flat. It may not look sexy, but this nifty trick works a charm. The pins underneath will be your little secret to getting the smooth, confident look you are after.

Take good care of your shapewear

Good quality shapewear is an investment in your look and the way you feel. If you want it to last the distance, it’s essential to treat it with respect and love. Wash and store your shapewear garment properly to extend its life and help it work its magic every time.
