6 Ways To Wear Your Shapewear With Stay-Up Straps

Posted on 28 March 2017


Get the most bang for your buck by choosing one of our “stay-up” styles when selecting your shapewear. These pieces come with removable straps that can be worn a multitude of ways. Choose between wearing fabric or transparent straps depending on the look you’re going for - all shaper styles with straps come with one pair fabric, one pair of transparent straps.

We’ve designed our latest range of shapewear with removable straps to give the wearer as much versatility as possible. Every woman is different, and every body shape has different needs when it comes to looking your best in shapewear.

For apple shaped figures, we recommend wearing your shaper with no straps at all. This is because the straps are designed to prevent rolling down on figures with defined waists, whereas women with apple shaped figures shouldn’t experience this problem. To see the shapewear styles we recommend for women with apple shaped figures, click here.



1. Standard - two straps over shoulders

Wearing your straps this way will offer you the most figure support for wearing under dresses with straps. This will prevent any rolling down, keeping you comfortable and hassle free all night. For underbust styles, tuck your shaper under your bra and wear your straps under your bra straps. This will give you a super effective, overall torso slim down.


2. No straps

Best for strapless outfits and especially tricky necklines, you can wear your shaper completely strap free for the most revealing of outfits. For the best level of figure support, choose an underbust style and wear it tucked into your bra. This will slim your entire torso and prevent rolling down without the use of straps.


3. Cross back

Wear your straps this way for underneath cross back dresses, or for a cute look under dresses with no back at all!


4. One shoulder cross

This strap style creates an excellent level of body support for wearing under dresses that have a one shoulder, across body style.


5. One shoulder

For wearing under dresses that only have one shoulder free. The strap can be worn at different points across your shoulder to suit a range of one shoulder dress styles. For minimum visibility, opt for wearing your transparent straps rather than the fabric ones provided.


6. Halter neck

Great for wearing under halter neck styles, your shaper can also be worn this way for backless dresses when wearing your hair down. Your hair should cover any visibility of the strap, hiding your shapewear from view. For an especially invisible look, wear your transparent straps rather than your fabric ones.
