What size should I choose?

Unlike regular shapewear, you don’t have to go for a size smaller, as our shapewear leggings are meant to give you comfortable control. All our products have sizing charts, so make sure you know your pant size. For example, a size 8 would wear a size Medium in Svelte.

How should I wash them?

Our shapewear leggings are made of highly elastic knit fabrics, so definitely don’t put them in the dryer. Wash them with similar colors, in cold water and on a delicate cycle. Then hang them dry. This will prevent any shrinking.

Of course! Our shapewear leggings are meant to be worn as outerwear, that’s why we developed thick, high quality, opaque fabric for them so that you could wear them without fear of transparency.
