Shapewear can be a bit tricky to put on, but if you step in to all styles, even camis and slips, you will find it a lot easier as it's almost impossible to get it over your shoulders. As you step in, gently pull the garment up over your waist being careful not to use your fingernails, this will help smooth and flatten any lumps and bumps on the way and leave you with a lovely silhouette.

Fabric & Garment Care

All Bella Bodies intimates, apparel and shapewear are designed in Australia and made in China and Portugal under strict ethical and environmental working standards.

Bella Bodies has an office and warehouse in Sydney and the UK where all orders are individually packed and shipped from.

Once you have worn a bamboo garment you will understand how soft and breathable it is making it the perfect choice for underwear, especially for those with sensitive skin. Bella Bodies bamboo underwear has incredible stretch and bounce back properties, meaning that it will stretch to your body with no dig in and then, once washed, will regain it's original firmness.

Needing only rainwater to grow and a fast growth cycle means bamboo is an extremely sustainable and eco friendly fibre. You will notice on our labels it says "Bamboo Viscose", viscose is the term given to any man made fibre made from wood pulp.

Our bra’s have a 7cm side opening - so many customers remove our cup inserts and put in their own silicone prosthesis / prosthetics / replacement after a mastectomy / surgery. Our bamboo fabric is extremely soft and breathable plus it’s also very stretchy so you can easily slip in whatever size you may need. Many women also wear them to bed every night because they are so comfortable.

If you thought Bamboo Viscose was super soft and felt amazing on the skin then you will love Modal. We think it is even softer than Bamboo. With its breathable and easy care properties, Modal is the perfect material for keeping you cool in summer. Our garments use Lenzing Modal (a cellulose fibre) which is produced from Beech Trees specifically grown in a sustainable way and yarns are produced via the Closed Loop system (meaning water and chemicals are reused over and over to ensure that minimal water is wasted and no chemicals are released into the environment.)

To keep your underwear looking great for many years we suggest you use a lingerie wash bag and wash on either gentle or standard wash cycle in warm water with like colours. We recommend taking out the removable pads in our bras before washing as they can get pushed out of shape.

Dry your Bella Bodies on the line. We do not recommend using a tumble dryer as the heat may damage the fibres.

Washing and drying instructions are found on the labels of all garments.

The main difference between the Bamboo and Travel ranges is the fabric. The bamboo range is made from a bamboo blend that is eco-friendly and the travel range is made from a polyamide blend that is light weight and quick drying fabric.
