  • Who's Your Body Type?

    Many women underestimate the power of well-fitting undergarments.  Just because you can’t see what’s underneath, doesn’t mean it’s less important. Something that feels and looks good on, will likely make you feel good as well!  The confidence you will feel when you present your best self to the world is empowering.

    Knowing what size bumbrella will work best for you will allow you to take full advantage of all the wonderful features bumbrella has to offer. Meet my new friends and see who looks most like you

     

    Who's Your Body Type?

    THE BUMBRELLA FIT: Good to know!

    1) bumbrella is not shape wear! It will not squeeze or shape your body.

    2) It comes with a built-in panty in two fits: hipster brief and thong.

    3) bumbrella is meant to hang freely around your hips in it’s comfortable A-line shape.

    4) The waistline is adjustable in design. It allows you to adjust the length of your hemline and waistline height up to 1” by sliding up or down the fabric around the the waistband.

    5) bumbrella's waistline sits below your belly button.


    FIT TIPS: 
    Figuring out what size you are

    1) If uncertain what size bumbrella to get, measure yourself around the waist and hips, and follow our sizing chart above. Be sure to measure around the fullest part of your bum and at your natural waistline (your natural waist is where you would naturally bend).

    2) Do not size down! bumbrella is NOT shapewear. If your bumbrella is too tight, the fabric will have a rippled effect and it may not stay in place. If your bumbrella doesn’t hang freely around your hips in it’s comfortable A-line shape, you risk the nuisance of ride-up.  The slip portion will pull tightly across your bum and creep up when you walk.  This is NOT a good fit.  Don’t be afraid to size up. Size is only a number! You are so much more than that.  We want you love bumbrella as much as we do and appreciate it’s superior comfort. 

    3) If you need help with selecting your best fit, you can always contact us for fitting advice.  We want to offer you the very best customer service.  Email us at customerserice@wearbumbrella.com. Provide us with your height, weight, dress size and which of my friends best represents you and we will help you find your perfect fit!

    Free yourself from the grip and squeeze of shapewear and enjoy a new-found freedom with bumbrella. You don’t need to feel the pressure of looking like your favorite celebrity or even your best friend…just be yourself! Your body is uniquely your own, so own it! Embrace all your curves and even those last few stubborn pounds you’ve been working hard to lose.

  • The evolution seen in women’s fashion through the ages to today calls for a new kind of undergarment that will cater to that new demand. Trends in the history of undergarments have a tendency of changing based on social and overall views of the time. Pre-suffrage and industrialization, women bound themselves in corsets for the idyllic image of feminine beauty.

    The 20-40’s, women liberated themselves from the squeeze and long hemlines, as they explored their place in society and were forced to help out during the war. Comfort was key when working long shifts in factories and keeping the country going while men were drafted to war.

    The 50’s was a time of relative wealth and peace, women were expected to be “the perfect homemaker”, wives and mothers with tiny waistlines and fuller skirts,  resulting in the return to constricting shapewear in conjunction with longer slips.

    The 60-70’s allowed women to rebel against these societal expectations as they sought out equal rights and their return to the workforce, allowing them to shed these constricting undergarments for more colorful and comfortable pieces.

    The 80’s boxier shapes worn mainly in the work force, allowed for less fitted silhouettes and are largely responsible for today’s granny slip. 

    The 90-2010 brought back a more modern version of the same shapewear of the past, women were now not only struggling to fit in a man’s world but were also trapped by a new idea of perfection based on what is portrayed by the media and heavy re-touching. 

    Since the turn of the millennium, with the focus on wellness and healthy living, women have started questioning how they live and are learning how to love theirs bodies, bumps and all. They are more educated, look at food labels, they care about the environment, they exercise, they are mothers, wives, workers, with varied interests and love for self-expression.  Until now, there has not been a pantyslip out there that can provide comfort, coverage and style that makes you feel confident and beautiful. Bumbrella is perfectly positioned for the modern woman who doesn’t want to be bound by her undergarments. It’s smart, makes sense and it’s contemporary.

    “Slips made in the 1940s were mainly made of 100% rayon due to the war effort. In the late 1940s, some nylon slips began to appear on the market, and the vast majority of slips made in the 1950s were nylon. In the 1960s, slips were offered in a much more variety of colours, including multi-coloured slips. Slips with a floral print design were also made available.” (1)
