The 5 Body-Positive Rules for Choosing Plus Size Girdle

Know Your Plus-Size Girdle Measurements

How do you pick the right size of girdle? The first thing you need to know: buy girdles in your size or, if you are not completely sure, one size larger.

Also, girdle sizes don’t always correlate to underwear sizes. Don’t assume that you are the same size in a girdle just because you usually buy a certain size of undies.

If you’re unsure about your size, you can check out our sizing charts and our help center to learn more about choosing the right girdle size according to your measurements.

Know Your Body Shape

What’s your natural silhouette? Great girdles enhances your natural body shape. No matter your size, knowing your body type helps you choose the best body shaper options for your unique build.

Choose Your Support Level

Once you’ve figured out the correct size and which areas you want to accentuate, it’s time to decide on how much compression you want.

The three different types of compression:

  • Light compression: Light control, everyday girdle pieces will smooth target areas so you can wear clothes more comfortably.
  • Medium compression: Are you looking to accentuate your curves?
    • Firm control girdle is made with supple, stretchy fabrics that move with your body while adding subtle contours to your shape.
    • You should get hours of comfort from firm control pieces.
  • Firm compression: Often used to provide more contouring to your shape.
    • Firm and extra-firm control pieces are perfect for formal, structured clothing like wedding dresses, prom gowns, evening gowns, and cocktail dresses.
    • You should feel toned and sturdy without feeling constricted.

Match the Right Plus-Size Girdle to the Occasion

The amount of compression and support you need will depend on the occasion and the outfit.

  • Everyday wear: For lounging or for days that you need a little pick-me-up, your best bet is a light or medium support girdle.
  • Workwear: If you work in an office with a dress code, try this medium-support piece that will help give your business separates a clean, tailored look.
  • Evening wear: A nice medium to firm-support bodysuit will help you show off your shape in your evening dress.
  • Formal wear: Going to a wedding or other affair that calls for glamour? You’ll appreciate the extra firming power that comes from heavy-duty girdle pieces. Getting married? Congrats!
