Shapewear Shorts

Top FAQs

Do body shapewear shorts work?

Yes! During pregnancy, shapewear shorts can help offer essential support around the belly while lightly compressing your legs and tush to encourage increased blood flow. Many medical professionals also recommend wearing shapewear shorts postpartum to help ease discomfort and support your core.

What do shapewear shorts do?

A lot. Women’s shapewear shorts help eliminate panty lines for a smoother, more polished look, provide extra coverage to prevent chafing between your thighs, and most importantly, offer additional support and compression when needed. Maternity shapewear shorts in particular are designed to offer extra support around your core and belly while gently compressing your legs and tush to promote healthy blood flow and help prevent varicose veins.

When should you start wearing maternity shapewear shorts?

Whenever you like! Belly Bandit’s maternity shapewear shorts are designed to grow with you, so you can start wearing them as soon as the first trimester.

Will shapewear shorts ride up?

Not if you’re wearing the right size. The legs of your shapewear shorts should be snug, but not uncomfortably tight.

Are shapewear shorts breathable?

Yes! All of Belly Bandit’s shapewear shorts are made with our patented, lightweight WonderWeave® material that’s not only breathable, but also helps keep lotions, creams, and oils on your skin so you can fight stretch marks and keep your skin hydrated.

Is it safe to wear shapewear shorts every day?

Yes and no. While maternity shapewear has been shown to have many health benefits, every woman will vary in her body’s reaction to it. Some women can wear shapewear all day long and feel comfortable, while others prefer to only wear it for a few hours at a time. You should pay close attention to your overall comfort while wearing shapewear and consult with your doctor about how everyday wear may affect you and your situation.

What are the best tummy control shapewear shorts?

We know we’re biased, but we think the best shapewear shorts for tummy control are our Mother Tucker Biker Shorts! These biker shorts are intended for post-pregnancy wear and utilize our Muffinology® compression technology to keep your tummy securely tucked. Remember: You should never wear shapewear that compresses your belly while pregnant.
