Perfect fit = perfect curves. A critical step to ordering shapewear is identifying the size that will fit your body best. Don’t make the mistake of ordering a size that's too small because you think you might look thinner. The opposite is true—if it’s too tight, it will be extremely unflattering—and uncomfortable. Follow each garment’s size chart closely; you’ll find it located at the bottom of each product description or image gallery. Note that some brands’ measurements may vary, so be sure to check the chart every time.
For all measurements, use a fabric or vinyl measuring tape and keep it level with the ground. Don't pull too tight—you should be able to slip a finger underneath the tape.
Your shapewear size is likely to be larger than the size you wear for regular clothing. Don’t be discouraged—it isn’t your body, it’s that brands run small! Popular brands are unfortunately the top offenders, including Amia, Ann Chery, Vedette, Leonisa, Co’coon and Fajate. If you’re debating between two sizes, we wholeheartedly recommend going with the larger size.

You may find it tempting to order a smaller size to make your waist as tiny as possible. But waist trainers are already designed to make your waist as small as it will get based on your current waist size (plus, waist trainers tend to run small!). Expect even the correct size to feel tight at first. Be mindful of a few brands that tend to run small, such as Amia, Ann Chery, Ann Michel, Fajate, Caribbean Shape and Flakisima. Below are two size charts; one for waist trainers with letter sizing and one for those with number sizing:
Corsets are adjusted by tightening the lacing in the back, which happily means you have complete control of the fit. Your current waist measurement is still your guide. Corsets are sized at 4-5 inches less than your waist measurement. Those 4-5 inches will be the gap in the back of the corset that you will close over time. For example, if your waist measures at 32 inches, your corset size is 28. Some of our corsets have letter sizing; in these cases only consider your current waist measurement and select the corresponding letter size:
