A bargain on price isn’t a true bargain if it leaves you unsatisfied. If shapewear doesn’t improve your figure to the degree you expect, or isn’t comfortable enough for you to want to wear, it isn’t worth buying – regardless of its price. Fortunately, shapewear worth buying does exist to fit every budget. Depending on the price you’re willing to pay, you can find good shapewear, better shapewear, or the best shapewear available today.

Good shapewear fits properly and is designed to improve the way your figure looks under your favorite fashions. It’s also comfortable enough that you’ll want to wear it. Of course, depending on the outfits you want to wear at different times, you may need different styles or silhouettes in your wardrobe to obtain specific results. That’s because, regardless of price point, any one piece of shapewear can’t improve all figure flaws. Good shapewear is perfect for any woman on a tight budget. It can be found at discount retailers that provide good-quality merchandise at affordable prices.

Better shapewear may be better than good shapewear because it’s made with fabrics of higher quality. Such fabrics help these garments comfortably fit more women. Better shapewear also may incorporate some extra features, like seams or panels, to improve its ability to smooth, shape, and/or slim. It may even have more decorations, which may be important in helping the wearer feel more confident. Better shapewear can be found at department stores that provide greater quality and selection than discount retailers.

How much do you usually spend on your favorite piece of shapewear?

Like better shapewear, the best shapewear also incorporates extra features for greater performance. But, it’s also made of the finest fabrics. Such fabrics are often woven with premium yarns. The construction of the garments, or the fabric itself, contributes to superior figure improvement and provides the most comfortable, accurate fits possible. And because of the materials used, these garments usually have the finest aesthetic appeal. They can be found at finer department stores that offer high levels of product quality, selection, and service.

Regardless of where you shop, remember that it’s always a good idea to spend some time in the fitting room to try on the garments you think you might like. That way you’re mostly likely to find the best combination of shaping and comfort at the price that’s right for you.

    I love the Cupid brand but the local Walmarts don’t carry anything over 2x even though I’ve asked the managers to do so. They did before but now they don’t. No other place here in the Rio Grande Valley carry Cupid shapewear in 3x or larger. Too bad as I like Cupid but I have to buy something else.

    Good news, Catherine. Cupid has just added a new style, #5322, at Walmart. It’s an Extra Firm Plus Size Brief, it comes in sizes 2X-5X, and is available in beige and black. If you contact Cupid through cupidintimates.com’s Contact Us page, they will be able to direct you to the location nearest you where you can purchase one.

    Hi Elaine. Unfortunately, style 5298 was discontinued. As part of that change, some new Cupid styles were added at Walmart, though none of those additions were bodybriefers. I would encourage you to check out the selection of Naomi & Nicole, Miraclesuit, and TC bodybriefers on our main website.

    I am also devastated that style 5298 is no longer available. It is comfortable, no underwire, but with lift and support. I have at least 5 friends who also used the style. now it is no longer available, and none of the other brands or styles can even come close. please cupid intimates bring this style back. There is a great need for this style. Thank you.

    Hi Jaymee,

    I’m sorry to hear how much you miss Style 5298. The good news is that next month, Style 5813 will be in stores and we think you’ll like this bodybriefer even more. It will have specially-designed control panels and our Wonderful Edge® finish at the leg openings. Also, it will deliver extra firm control and won’t have an underwire. Silhouettes often undergo an ebb and flow in popularity. Unfortunately, there just hasn’t been as much demand for bodybriefers lately as there had been in the past. Perhaps the tide is beginning to turn …
