Top FAQs

Is it OK to wear shapewear everyday?

It’s recommended to use moderation when it comes to wearing tight undergarments. Some experts suggest only wearing it for special occasions and not every day. There are some health risks from clothing that constricts your body, but not all shapewear is constricting or tight. If you notice any discomfort from your shapewear, you should stop wearing it.

Can you wear shapewear while pregnant?

Yes, it's safe to wear regular shapewear or maternity shapewear. While many things can be a bit riskier during pregnancy, you aren't compressing your baby by pulling on your favorite pair of shapewear. There is no medical reason that you shouldn't wear shapewear during your pregnancy at all. It's perfectly safe, since your baby is well cushioned by a lot of amniotic fluid and other protections, so the mild compression of shapewear won't cause any harm at all.

What are the advantages of wearing shapewear during maternity?

Maternity shapewear can help improve posture and take weight off of your back as your pregnancy bump grows. It can also be more comfortable than your regular underwear or tights, which are prone to slipping and bunching. This is especially true at the beginning of a pregnancy, as pre-pregnancy underwear might still technically fit but don't always sit right on your changing body. As long as you aren't wearing the type that constricts at the tummy, it is completely safe, and likely to be very comfortable, to wear maternity shapewear. Maternity shapewear can also provide a smoother, smaller silhouette

How do I choose the right maternity shapewear?

The right maternity shapewear will offer support, create a smooth silhouette under clothing, and not feel restrictive or uncomfortable. Choose maternity shapewear that targets your growing body, like your belly, breasts, butt and thighs like our Maternity Bump Support Leggings.

How long should I wear shapewear while pregnant?

You can wear shapewear for the entire duration of your pregnancy as long as it feels comfortable, not, and offers support.

Does shapewear help postpartum?

For new mothers, shapewear is an excellent way to help manage pain after delivery. The compression of a girdle or belt can help manage lower back pain, cramping, and pelvic pain when used consistently. It can also help new mothers feel more confident and like themselves quicker.

What is the best shapewear after pregnancy?

You can wear shapewear right away after birth. For belly bands, most moms use compression wraps like the Postpartum Luxe Belly Wrap for up to 12 weeks postpartum. You can use with or interchange the Belly Wrap with other supportive shapewear like our Mother Tucker® Postpartum Compression Leggings.

Do shaping postpartum belly wraps really work?

Yes! Most experts agree that light support postpartum—when tissues and organs start moving back into place—can help you feel better.

How long should you wear a belly wrap after pregnancy?

You can wear a belly wrap for as long as you need to each day to feel comfortable. However, it’s recommended that you only wear them for up to 12 weeks. Postpartum shapewear is a great alternative once you’ve graduated from a belly wrap but are still looking for support.
