What is a Body Shaper?
A Body Shaper is an undergarment made of stretchy materials created to wear around your midsection and provide high-compression to instantly shape and mold your body, redistribute fat and slim your waistline. When worn over time these results can become permanent.
What are the benefits of wearing Shapewear?
Well first and foremost you’ll look instantly slimmer! The results are pretty dramatic and immediate. You’ll look 2 even 3 sizes smaller as soon as you put it on! Shapewear will smooth out your tummy and back rolls and will help you look and feel better in any outfit. Shapewear such as waist trainers and bodysuits also reduce inches off your waist, provide a more effective workout, help you eat less, tighten loose skin, mold your body post lipo-surgery or postpartum and improve posture and circulation.
How often should I wear my undergarment to permanently reduce my waist?
Wear your undergarment everyday. If you are new to this we suggest you wear it loosely for an hour or two and gradually wear it for longer periods of time until you become more accustomed to the tightness. For Example: On day one where it for 1-2 hours, on day two where it for 2-3 hours etc until you feel comfortable wearing it at least 8 hours a day. The longer you wear it the better.
How do I choose the correct size?
We understand choosing shapewear online can be a little tricky but it’s quite simple. The most reliable method to choosing the correct size is to measure your waist which is right above your belly button and is the smallest part of your stomach. Take a deep breath in and on the exhale, measure your waist. Then refer to the size chart to find the corresponding size. Once you have your measurement you can also use the height and weight or jean size to be sure but keep in mind that this is a general guideline since we all hold our weight differently. If you are between sizes ALWAYS CHOOSE A SIZE UP. Our undergarments are meant to fit very tight, and you may need help getting it on the first time until it breaks in a bit.

Is wearing a body shaper or waist trainer safe?
Absolutely and they are an effective way to reduce inches off of your waist. It is very important you wear one that is the correct size and listen to your body. Yes, the undergarment should feel very tight and may be difficult to put on at first but it should not pinch you, hurt you or shorten your breath.
How long do I wear my body shaper before I go down a size?
This is different for everyone. Some people size down in a month and others in two. Everyone’s body works differently so the answer varies. However people who are incorporating a proper diet and exercise routine along with wearing a compression garment seem to lose inches much faster.
Can I sleep with my body shaper on?
This isn’t a common practice but it is entirely up to you. If you don’t feel comfortable sleeping with it on then don’t. If you do then go for it. We highly suggest sleeping with your undergarment on only if you are post lipo or tummy tuck surgery but always double check with your doctor first.
Can I wear shapewear Post-Pregnancy?
Absolutely! We suggest you waist train post-pregnancy to tighten your skin up and go back to that pre-pregnancy body as quickly as possible. Most Doctors suggest wearing a compression garment after birth but be sure to get the okay from your doctor first.
Can I wear shapewear while pregnant?
No you should not. It is not safe to compress your stomach while pregnant and we highly advise you not to.
I am experiencing pain around my ribs after wearing my undergarment. Is that normal?
Yes, it is absolutely normal to feel a little discomfort & pain when you are new to waist training and shapewear as your body is adjusting to the compression. Within 5 to 7 days the pain will go away. If it persist for more than a week please consult with your doctor.
How do I put on my undergarment?
It may seem difficult at first to get all of the clasps on your undergarment in place but once you get the hang of it, it will become second nature. Clasp the hooks from the bottom up and gently pull up as you go.
How do I clean my undergarment?
Waist trainers and Vests with boning should be hand washed only with cold water and gentle detergent. Then hung indoors to dry. We suggest you wear a thin tank top underneath your garments to keep them clean longer. You could wash your Fuego Curves bodysuit in the washing machine with cold water and soft detergent and then hang indoors to dry.
