Avoid Silk Pant Style Tummy Tuckers

To avoid looking 3-4 months pregnant

Yes, you are right. Only silk dresses are reputed, not silk tummy shapers. The reason you should avoid them is that-

The upper rim of the Pants would just squeeze your waistline. And the main part of your abdomen (your stomach) would be as it is. Untouched and uncompressed. In fact, it would look, even more cutely round. We don’t want this to happen!

Don’t buy Short or Too High Waist Tummy Tuckers

That’s because it will just enhance and highlight your belly region by pressing your pelvis area. With a medium size tummy tuckers, you can be assured of better coverage too. Hence, you should avoid buying short or low-waist shape wears too.

    Hey, I face a problem with this tummy tucker, it slips down to my navel level while sitting. Do you have any tips to hold it or you have any special type of tummy tucker that won’t slip down. I would be grateful.

    • Sapana

      Hi Arti,
      The tummy tucker should not be very tight, if its smaller sized then it tends to roll down. also depending on the body for some women the high waist suits better but for some low waist. You will have to try both types to know which one suits best to you.

    • Sapana

      Hi there,
      Any shapewear which tucks the tummy effectively to make your tummy look flat is not going to be Comfortable. Its true. If you have only loose skin you wont feel much comfortable.

    hi Sapna, very helpful article. it was first time for me to purchase n try a shapewear. I have purchased 2 types from above. as u hv mentioned i hv only lower saggy tummy n its effective. but i feely itchy on the longer type shapewear. Is there anything that can be done for the itching. I wear it for about 5 6 hrs in a go. is it ok?

    • Sapana

      Hi Neha,
      Usually these shapewear are not 100% cotton and hence using it for long in hot weather will make it irritable and itchy.
      You should have a 100% cotton clothe in touch with your skin, so you may try to use a long waist cotton underwear inside the shapewear.
