My package is showing as delivered, but I did not receive it. What should I do?

If your tracking information says the package was "delivered," first double-check the area where the carrier would have left it. Ask neighbors too in case the package was dropped at the wrong door. Also, look for any "attempted delivery" notices, which means the carrier tried to deliver it, but no one was home. If you still don't see anything, wait until the end of the next day, because some carriers' electronic systems may show the package as delivered, even when it's still on the way. Still no luck? Call the carrier with your tracking number for more information.


If the carrier is unable to provide a resolution please contact our Customer Care Center at (877) 442-4530 or send an email to info@hourglassangel.com.

How do I choose the best shapewear or cincher for me?

If you have questions or need further advice on choosing a shaper, feel free to contact us directly at 877-442-4530 or send an email to info@hourglassangel.com with your questions. We’re here to help!

I just had a baby. How long should I wait until I use your products?

Congratulations! You can typically wear a cincher as soon as one week after giving birth. If you had a c-section, it is often advisable to wait two weeks. Every body is different, so please consult a doctor for a professional opinion.

I'm seeing words I don't understand – what do they mean?

Shapers and intimate apparel are described with a range of technical terms that can be confusing at first glance. Use our glossary to help decode what it all means and make your shopping even easier.

I need more control, should I go down a size?

No, a smaller size won't fit right and may be painful – ouch! Shapewear comes in different levels of control: minimal control, slight control, moderate control, strong control, and maximum control. Instead of going down a size, go up a control level. This will ensure your shapewear provides the support you need and stays comfortable too.

How do I know which size to buy?

You can use our Size Chart for a quick glance at the recommended measurements for each size. Each product has it's own sizing and it's best to review the size chart on each product page. The most important thing to review is waist size. If you still need help, just give us a call at (877) 442-4530 or send us an email at info@hourglassangel.com.

What size should I select if I plan on losing weight?

Our shapewear will mold to your body, so we recommend selecting a shaper based on your current size. Remember that our shapewear can make you look up to 2 dress sizes smaller instantly, depending on the compression level – but it shouldn't cause discomfort.

You can check our Size Chart for a quick glance at recommended measurements. We recommend you go up a size if you experience numbness in the legs, shortness of break, sharp stomach pains or pinching.

What are my measurements?

Review our Measuring Instructions on our Sizing Page to learn the right way to measure your bust, waist and hips. It's easy – all you need is a cloth or vinyl body-measuring tape. And if you don't have either, simply print and put together your own measuring tape, click here to download.

I'm in between sizes. What should I do?

We understand, not all bodies are the same! You can also use our Size Chart & Measuring Instructions to see recommended measurements for each size. If you're outside the lines, don't worry. Here are some simple tips to help you select the right shapewear:


Never size down! Our shapewear is designed to slim and smooth, so picking a size too small will cause bulges and discomfort.


Email or call us. We have a team of customer service representatives who are happy to answer your questions and help you select the right size for your body.  You can contact customer service at (877) 442-4530 or email info@hourglassangel.com.

I’m unsure about my size or I have another question about fit. What should I do?
