Top 5 Tips for Perfect-Fitting Shapewear & Trainer

1. Embrace the Measuring Tape: Forget clothing sizes – your natural waist measurement in inches is the key to the perfect fit! Measure your actual waist size: Our high-compression Waist Trainers and Shapewear are designed to reduce your waist by 2 inches. Ditch the confusion of clothing sizes and choose your natural waist size in inches for a snug, comfortable fit that delivers results.Grab a tape, breathe comfortably, and measure around your narrowest torso point (where you'd tie a belt).

2. Size Chart Savvy: Utilise our detailed product size charts, but remember, they're a guide. Our high-compression Waist Trainers and shapewear are designed to reduce your waist by approximately 2 inches so choose your your actual waist measurement for the most accurate fit. No measuring tape? No problem! Use our approximate UK dress sizes as a guide but remember waist measurement is key!

3. No need to size down: The garment you receive will already be approximately 2 inches smaller than your chosen waist size to ensure optimal compression and results. Don't be tempted to downsize! Our waist trainers and shapewear are designed for effective compression and waist reduction using your true natural waist size. Aim for snug, not suffocating.

4. In-between sizes? Opt for comfort and choose the next size up if your waist falls at the higher end of a size range for a more relaxed fit that also delivers the results you want.

5. Expert Assistance: Still have questions? Don't hesitate to call our experts on 01923 225545 or email us to offer personalised advice and ensure you find your perfect fit.

FAQ / GENERAL SIZING QUESTIONS:

1. Should I size down for a tighter fit and faster results?
No! While it may seem right, sizing down in a latex waist trainer can be uncomfortable, unhealthy, and counterproductive. Our waist trainers are designed for effective compression at your true waist size. Opting for a smaller size can restrict breathing, cause pain, and even lead to injury.

2. My waist measurement falls between two sizes on your chart. Which size should I choose?
Always size up! A snug but comfortable fit is essential for effective waist training and body shaping with our high compression shapewear. Choosing the larger size ensures you can breathe easily and move comfortably while still experiencing the desired compression and results.

3. I'm new to waist training. Do you offer different compression levels based on size?
Yes! Some brands offer graduated compression levels across their size range. However, The London Corset Company provides all our men's waist trainers and women's waist trainers with the optimal compression and adjustable levels for each size, ensuring effectiveness regardless of your size or gender. Our size range from XS-6XL - UK 4-32.

5. I have a short torso, what waist trainer short I wear?
