How To Prevent Shapewear From Rolling Up And Down

Even though there’s nothing more frustrating than shapewear that just won’t stay in place, is there anything that you can do about it? The answer is yes! Keep reading to discover:

Make Sure You’re Wearing The Right Size

The first tip that we have to share with you is to make sure that you are wearing the right size for you!

Even though this point should certainly go without saying, making sure that you are wearing the correct size for your natural shape will help to lower the chances of you having to deal with frustrating shapewear that keeps rolling down your stomach or up your thighs. 

If you haven’t already, you should make sure that you get measured correctly at either a lingerie store (such as one at your local shopping mall) or alternatively opt to measure yourself at home by using a tape measure and following a tutorial – there’s plenty of them online!

After you have effectively measured yourself, you will then be ready to proceed with purchasing the shapewear that you would like. 

In addition to making sure that you are getting properly measured, it is also important to make sure that you are also taking the time to refer to the size guide provided to you by the manufacturer.

The size guide is almost always located in the product page, so you will be able to find it located close to the size selection area. 

It is also important to make sure that you are taking into account what the compression level of the shapewear product you would like to purchase is, as all of these can offer slightly different fits.

Additionally, you should also note that the compression strength won’t make any difference to the sizing, so you won’t need to size up or down to achieve the support you’re going for.

Consider Wearing Hold-Ups

The next piece of advice that we have to share with you is to consider wearing hold-ups!

If you weren’t already familiar with what these are, hold ups are essentially small clips or straps that can be attached to your shapewear, such as your bra strap. 

Once they are attached, they will then be able to ensure that shapewear will be able to stay in place while it is being worn, which means that you won’t need to worry about it rolling up or down.

As a side note, if you don’t have any hold-ups to hand and you need a quick fix, you can always opt to pull your shapewear up as high as you can and then firmly tuck it under your bra.

This will help to hold in shapewear and stop it from rolling down your stomach. While this won’t work for lower body shapewear, this is a helpful tip that can come in handy if you’re having an emergency!

Opt For Silicone Hems

If you want to make sure that your shapewear stays exactly where you want it to be, then you’ll be making the right choice to opt for silicone hems!

Besides being far higher in quality than other types of hems used in shapewear, silicone hems have a much better ability to be able to hold onto your skin. 

Thanks to this, it means that opting to use shapewear that features a silicone hem will have a much greater chance of not only providing you with plenty of comfort, but also staying put while you go throughout your everyday life.

In other words, you won’t need to worry about having to deal with your shapewear rolling up and down while you wear it!

Take Your Time Getting Dressed

Last but certainly not least, the final tip that we have to share with you is to make sure that you take your time while you are getting ready.

To make sure that you are able to make your shapewear sit correctly on your body, you should make sure that you are getting dressed while your skin is dry and not too hot, such as right after getting out of the shower.

After making sure that your skin is dry, you can then begin putting on your shapewear.

You should do this carefully and slowly, so that you can make sure that you are putting it on correctly. Believe it or not, incorrectly worn shapewear can also cause rolling!

The Bottom Line

Now that you have taken the time to read through all of the above, we hope that we have been able to give you a better understanding of how you can prevent your shapewear from rolling up your thighs and down your stomach while you are wearing them! 

Plus, by following the tips and tricks we have shared with you above, you should find that you are able to make sure that your shapewear stays put – no matter whether you’re spending the day exploring a new city or getting ready for a busy day with meetings!
