True & Co Better Way to Shop for Shapewear and Bras

Shapewear and Bras that Actually Fit

Often, one of the worst things about buying undergarments and shapewear is trying on shapewear in the cold harsh light of a store dressing room. Although some shops have realized that soft lighting and a comfortable dressing room make the try on process a lot less painless — now, there are even better options.

Often when looking for shapewear, we are looking for the right bra, waist cincher or slimming bodysuit for a special occasion. It is necessary to try on the shape wear with the dress or outfit we are planning to wear to the special event. Bringing your special occasion outfit to a variety of stores to try on shape wear is not always an option. This is another reason why home try on makes sense.


Imagine being able to try on various shapers and bras in the comfort of your own home. Good lighting, your own mirror, unhurried, and the ability to try the bras and shapers on with pieces in your closet to see if they have the desired shaping effect with a variety of garments.

Of course, you could buy several shapewear pieces from various stores or online and then return what doesn’t work – however this isn’t necessarily the most cost effective or best use of time.

Enter True & Co. True & Co is a website that offers a wide selection of undergarments from basics to special, and a great free try on option.

The site is unique in that you answer a fairly short questionnaire to determine your specific shape so that you get more customized recommendations for bras and undergarments that will suit your specific bust and shape. These go beyond the normal bust and cup measurements and I found them to be quite accurate. The site then offers you recommendations based on your shape and sizing issues you’ve had with previous bras with the ultimate goal of offering the best fit possible.

The site does not offer a huge selection of shaping undergarments but what they do carry is attractive and more importantly, there is a review rating system so that you can see what other people had to say about the shaping capabilities of each shaper. True & co notes that they’ve tried many different shapers to come up with their curated offerings

There are actually some *gasp* pretty shaping slips that you wouldn’t be embarrassed to show off. My favorite is the Berlei Berlei control shaper slip in black – it’s very pretty with lace panels and a unique shape and still offers contour and support under dresses. . You’ll find things from DKNY, Yummie, Scandale and more with different levels of shaping for different needs and occasions.


I must admit having a nicely wrapped box of shapers and bras arrive at your doorstep within a few days is very appealing. When they arrive, you can try on your bras and shapers in the comfort of home, with the different items you will wear them with to determine which are your favorites. You keep the ones you want and send back those you don’t in a ready return shipping pouch – so easy.
