Dos and Don’ts of Shapewear for Rectangle Body Shape

April 16 2020

People with a rectangle shaped figure usually have an athletic frame with the shoulders, bust, waist and hips measuring around the same size. Rectangle shapes can achieve balance creating the illusion of a more curvy appearance by defining your waist. Depending on your torso length or desired result, you can choose between either a mid-waist or underbust shaper. The key is to further cinch in your waist by adding a waist cincher. You may also go full glam by adding on either a pair of booty or hip pads, or both for an eye-catching va-va-voom silhouette.

Everyone’s body is beautiful, but sometimes we just need that extra help and boost to make us feel more confident and appreciate our body. Knowing how to dress for your specific body type will not only allow you to control your areas of concern but highlight your assets as well.

Keep on reading to find out the Do’s and Don’ts of Shapewear if you have a Rectangle Body Shape!

Our Betty Flexi-Steel Bone Corset is perfect for when you have a special event coming up and you would like to create a high impact hourglass silhouette and maximum tummy control and shaping.

 B Free Tip: To create an extreme hourglass look, you may add a Waist Cincher over the top of the corset (consider sizing down in the cincher if pairing with a corset). Then while wearing use your hands to squeeze in the waist to bend the bones in the corset to enhance the waist and create more curves.

 

The following section will now be divided into Petites or Average Height & Taller as your torso length will play a huge role in determining which type of shapewear is best for you. 

 

For Petite Frames

 

Do – Mid Waist Shapers

Shapewear with a tummy panel that goes just up to your waist is an ideal solution as the control panel will cinch in directly at your waist, making it appear smaller and giving you the look of a curvier appearance. However, this is a tricky one as the height of the tummy panel for optimum effect is totally dependant on your torso length.

If you have a shorter torso with a petite body frame then our Mid Waist Collection would be perfect for you. The control panel of these shapers are true to their name, fitting just up to the waist for a more comfortable wear as you don’t have excess fabric at the top (as you would if you wore underbust shapewear). With a double-layer maximum control panel, the Mid Waist shaping garments are effective in controlling and flattening the lower tummy. The smooth-touch microfibre fabric feels luxurious and soft for superior comfort while the seamless construction minimises irritation and bulges.

Available in a thong, shorts, or brief option, choose which leg finish best suits you and your outfit the best!

B Free Tip: For ladies who are thong wearers, a thong leg finish is a great option to enhance the shape of your bottom and hips while the tummy control panel sucks in the area above your hips and bottom to give you control and shaping where needed.

 

Don’t – Shapewear that goes up too high

Shapers with a tummy panel that goes past your natural waist, will not only cause the band to continuously go down but the extra fabric will cause it to bunch up, and will create unwanted bulges.

 

Maybe? – Mid Waist Padded Shapewear

Many women are intimidated and feel weird towards the idea of wearing padding. Padded shapewear is not up to everyone’s liking and that’s totally fine! This is just an extra option if you’re wanting to try and change up your look, and as long as you’re having fun with it that’s all that really matters!

The B Free Tummy & Thigh Shaping Hip/Booty Booster set features a pair of pads that can be interchangeably worn either on your hips to instantly creates rounder looking hips while also minimising the appearance of hip dips; as well as on your bottom too add more volume and booty boost. We have engineered the design of our pads so you can still feel and look natural yet have subtle to maximum impact. You may also pair this set with booty pads to achieve your desired look.

The Tummy & Thigh Shaping Shorts are crafted from a lightweight microfibre fabric that provides maximum compression from your waist to mid thighs for an overall smoother silhouette.

B Free Tips: The Hip/Booty Boosters are true to their name as you can wear them either on the hips or booty to suit your desired result.

For size 16 and up, we recommend wearing 2 hips pads on each side to create a bigger boost. To wear 2 hip pads, stack and offset the hip pads to make a longer and thicker pad for each side. 

 

For Average Height & Taller

 

Do – Underbust Shapers

If you are of average or taller height and have a longer torso, the mid waist style definitely won’t provide enough coverage and may attribute to the panel rolling down. Instead a better option is to pair the B Free Underbust Collection with a Waist Cincher so that your waist doesn’t get lost.

All of the B Free Ultimate Underbust Shapers features two pairs of adjustable and detachable straps in a matching colour and transparent to help ensure the control panel stays up. However rectangle body types definitely don’t need the straps to keep the band from rolling down. But it’s there if you need extra assurance and support for when you’re dancing the night away.

Choose from a variety of bottom finishes such as brief, shorts, thong or slip/dress to match your outfit, these will all work as they’re all made from the same fabrication, and strength of the tummy panel.

B Free Tips: It’s best that you tuck the tummy panel under your bra to further prevent it from rolling down. Also make sure that you fasten your bra in a comfortable tighter setting so it helps to keep the band firmly in place. This ensures that you achieve a smooth silhouette throughout with no bulges in between.

For ladies who are thong wearers, a thong leg finish is a great option to enhance the shape of your bottom and hips while the tummy control panel sucks in the area above your hips and bottom to give you control and shaping where needed.


Don’t – Shapewear that sits too low

For women that are of average height or taller with a longer torso, mid waist shapers may be too short on you with the panel barely reaching your waist. When this happens, it will cut you off around the flanks and cause love handles.

 

Maybe? – Underbust Padded Shapewear

Many women are intimidated and feel weird towards the idea of wearing padding. Padded shapewear is not up to everyone’s liking and that’s totally fine! This is just an extra option if you’re wanting to try and change up your look, and as long as you’re having fun with it that’s all that really matters!

We have engineered the design of our pads so you can still feel and look natural yet have subtle to maximum impact. The B Free Hourglass Padded Hip + Booty Shaper set features a pair of hip boosters that instantly creates rounder looking hips while also minimising the appearance of hip dips; the booty pads come in two sizes so you can achieve a natural looking boost under any outfit. To finalise your look, the Waist Cincher further cinches in your waist for an overall more curvy silhouette.
