Which size of stocking should I choose?
It often happens that we are mistaken when choosing the size of our stockings. Indeed, we believe that, to favor our shapes, we must take a larger or smaller size according to our expectations of results and not according to our comfort.
Indeed, we tend to always look at the size of the product before understanding how it works in general and its impact on our body. Remember that size is just a number and choosing the wrong size can lead to discomfort or even injury.
First, we think, for a classic bottom, it is enough to choose our usual trouser size. It has become a habit and we no longer realize it. However, it often happens that your underwear is visible under your skirt or pants. How to explain it?
Most lingerie brands advise choosing a larger size to be more comfortable in your bottom, to prevent it from fitting in unselected places and from marking under clothing.
When it comes to a shaper, we tend to believe that if we choose a smaller size, the bottom will tighten more and you will look even thinner. However, it can be very dangerous to practice this mania. Indeed, it can prevent your body from breathing, you could feel compressed and this could cause discomfort.

What you need to remember is that the choice of your bottom is up to you. It must correspond to your expectations and must be invisible under your clothes. It all depends on your outfit choice.
If your clothes are dark, do not hesitate to choose the black color, which will not blend under clothes. If the colors of your clothes are paler, prefer ivory or flesh colors, depending on your skin tone and the transparency of your overcoats.
We do not recommend the color black under light outfits because it may be visible under your dresses.
