How do I choose my Shapewear size?

We recommend you select garments in your regular underwear size. However, keep in mind Shapewear is designed to be tight and firm fitting, if not, it won’t achieve the maximum effect. Please refer to the size guide for each garment on the product page.

How do you put Shapewear on?

Follow our 3 easy steps, Roll, Step into, Unroll!

For most styles we recommend you roll up the garment, step into it, and then simply unroll into place.

How do I choose my bra size?

A perfectly fitting bra is extremely important. You will need a tape measure and it will focus on two key areas; underband and overbust. The underband is a firm measurement which will determine your band size. Ensure the tape measure is straight across the back. Second is the overbust area which will determine your best cup size. Wrap the tape measure around the fullest point of the bust ensuring the tape is straight across the back and isnt tight, allowing for some room. Once you have these measurements, refer back to our size guide.

How do I know if I have the right fitting bra?

For the best fitting bra, ensure that the centre front is flat and against the torso and the underwire sits smoothly underneath the breast encasing the bust. The neckline should sit flat and comfortable with no digging in or overspill. The underarm band and back band should sit flat and straight across the back. All Nancy Ganz bras will include four hook & eye adjustments for best fit through time. Straps should sit flat and firm, with enough space to run a finger beneath.

When is the best time to buy a maternity bra?

You can buy your maternity bras as early as you would like. From as early as the first few weeks to months, breast tenderness can begin. Whilst your breasts are growing and changing, we recommend a wire free style such as our Revive Amelia Lace Bra which will provide more flexibility and comfort.

When is the best time to buy my Nursing bras?

As your breasts may continue to grow throughout your pregnancy, we recommend getting yourself measured and fitted for a nursing bra around the 8 month of pregnancy.

How can I tell if my nursing bra is fitted correctly?

Your breasts should be fully encased inside the bra cups, not spilling out of the top, sides or bottom of the cups. Your breast size will fluctuate in between feeds, so you don’t want the fit of your nursing bra to be too snug or tight in the cups. The underband will sit straight across the back firmly, fitted on the loosest hook & eye fastening. Once baby is born and your ribcage decreases, you can tighten the fit by moving to the next hook & eye. All Nancy Ganz bras have 4 rows of adjustment.

How many nursing bras will I need?

We would recommend that you have between 3-4 bras: one to wear, one in the wash and one or two in the drawer ready to be worn when needed.

What is the best nursing bra for me?

The best bra for you will depends entirely on your lifestyle and your personal preference. Seam-free or wire free are ideal bras for sleep, lounge, light activity and providing comfort for growing breasts. Contour bras are ideal for the T-shirt wearers who want a bra that will provide a smooth profile under clothing and feel similar to their regular non maternity bras
