Dos & Dont’s For Buying Dermawear Shapewear Bust Shaping Products

? Never get a smaller size product and expect better results. Shapewear doesn’t work that way at all! It’s best to adhere to the sizing guidelines of the brand you are purchasing.

? If this is your first time trying out a shaping bra, don’t wear it tight or try a lower sized one, as you might feel discomfort or breathlessness, especially during the strenuous activities like dancing etc

? If you are trying Dermawear’s bust shaping product for the first time, then we suggest you start with one product first and then build on your bust-shaping-gear set gradually.

? To ensure a comfortable fit, do try to wear shaping bras twice or thrice before the ‘big occasion’ or event.
