If in the past you've found yourself a little bemused about where to start, fear not; Triumph's shapewear expert Monica Harrington has shared with us her essential dos and don'ts for finding the perfect fit.


1. DO wear your correct size (follow your dress size, i.e. if you're a 14, try a 14!)
2. DO step into your shapewear as it's easier to get in and out of.
3. DO try on before you buy.
4. DO sit down in your shapewear before buying to ensure that you are comfortable.
5. DO wear a shapewear style which is suitable to underpin your particular outfit (if you're wearing a figure hugging dress a shaping dress will create a smooth looking silhouette).



1. DON'T squeeze into a smaller size, as you will not get the full benefit of the shaping.
2. DON'T put your shapewear over your head when you put it on as you may get a little stuck!
3. DON'T pull at your shapewear with sharp finger nails when putting on or taking off, as this may rip the fabric.
4. DON'T moisturise your body as it causes the silicone edging on your shapewear to slip and it won't keep you in place for long!
5. DON'T limit your shapewear to a special occasion, follow these do's and don'ts and you'll find it's comfortable enough to wear everyday!

As for?Spanx? We love their inspiring story. Spanx founder Sara Blakely was getting ready for a party when she realized she didn't have the right undergarment to provide a blemish-free look under white pants. A problem we've all had yes? Armed with scissors and sheer genius, she cut the feet off her control top pantyhose and from there, the Spanx revolution was born. With an amazing selection of problem-solving products all available in Arnotts, we simply can't pick our favourite! SPANX are shaping the world by focusing on one simple but significant mission: To help women feel great about themselves and their potential. We love it!

So, this Christmas, indulge in some essential but oh-so-special shapewear and what's more, sign up for an Arnotts Wondercard (details on how to get your hands on one here) and start earning points to spend on your next shapewear shop!
