How to Fit – Padded Rear Shapers
Welcome! You’re about to learn how to find the padded rear shaper that’s the right size for you. To do so, you’ll be using your waist and hip measurements. If you’re ready, let’s begin. This presentation will only last a few minutes.
A padded rear shaper can be a great intimates choice.
It’s ideal for anyone who wants to add definition to her bottom. That’s because it’s designed with removable, gently-sloping, foam pads that create a natural-looking, full backside.
Before we talk about sizing, here’s a really helpful tip.
You’ll find that this garment will look and function its best when laundered according to its care label. Make sure you remove the padded inserts before washing and drying it, so the foam maintains its original shape.
Now it’s time to figure out which padded rear shaper size is right for you.
To do this, you’ll need to measure the lengths around your waist and hips.
You’ll need a flexible tape measure and a mirror. You may also find it helpful to have a buddy assist you.
Now, we’re ready to get down to business.
It’s best to take off your pants when measuring, as the fabric gets in the way of accuracy. Place the tape measure around the smallest part of your waist, following your body’s natural indentation. If you’re not sure where your smallest part is located, bend to the side to find it. Make sure that the tape lies flatly, and parallel to the ground, all the way around your body. Pull it snugly to get an accurate measurement.
Round the result, up or down, to the nearest whole inch. For example, if your measurement is 29 3/8”, round down to 29”. Or, if your measurement is 29 ½”, round up to 30”.
Next, we’ll measure your hips.
Stand with your legs together and place the tape measure around the fullest part of your hips. This should be approximately 7” below your waist. Make sure that it lies flatly, and parallel to the ground, all the way around your body.
Again, round the result, up or down, to the nearest whole inch. For example, if your measurement is 39 3/8”, round down to 39”. Or, if your measurement is 39 ½”, round up to 40”.
We’re almost done.
The two measurements taken together determine the size of the garment. Find your waist and hip measurements on the chart and you’ll discover the corresponding padded rear shaper size that’s right for you. For example, if your waist measures 33”, and your hip measures 42”, an average-size, extra-large, padded rear shaper will fit you well.
If your waist and hip measurements don’t correspond to one garment size, match only your hip measurement to the corresponding garment size. The fabric is very accommodating.
That's it - now you’ll feel confident when looking for the padded rear shaper that's right for you.
