THE ULTIMATE GUIDE SHAPEWEAR GUIDE
Best how-to that will ease you into the best shapewear experience ever with the expert guidance of Sugar Shapewear team.
HOW TO WEAR A WAIST TRAINER
1. With the Sugar Shapewear label on top and facing your body, place the waist trainer around your midsection.
2. Pull the waist trainer from both sides and start hooking from the bottom to tuck and lift your lower belly.
3. Place your thumbs inside the waist trainer for better grip of the hooks, with index fingers guiding the hooks to the buckles.
4. While hooking, adjust the waist trainer from time to time to your comfort and ensure the bone at the back is in line with your spine.
WAIST TRAINER MISTAKES
Dont's: Hooking from top to bottom
What happens when you start hooking your waist trainer from top to bottom, this causes spillages, bulges and your lower belly to be saggy. As your lower belly protrudes, this will force your waist trainer to fold up.
Do's: It is a crucial step to start hooking your waist trainer from the bottom to top.
This will help your belly & love handles to be tucked and lifted for long lasting firming results.
HOW TO WEAR TUMMY TUCK
1. Sit down and roll the Tummy Tuck legs to make a donut.
2. Pull up the rolled donut on both legs alternately, keeping it rolled up to your groin/crotch.
3. Drag the fabric bit by bit by maximising the stretch all the way up your tummy, before dragging the fabric down on your thighs.
4. Ensure that every inch of the Tummy Tuck touches your skin for optimal comfort.
#Never slide your shapewear as it may cause the fabric to overly stretch and tear.
The right postpartum shapewear eases your mind and body into restorative long term postpartum healing.
