Remember One Thing; IT IS NORMAL!

So, before moving on to the solution, it is essential to acknowledge, without shame, that it happens to every one of us. Even celebs, like Kim Kardashian, admitted to peeing all over her Spanx. (1)

The most key fact to remember when using the washroom while using shapewear is that this is normal and that you are not alone!

And that’s just fine…below we have found some solutions.

Does Shapewear Have a Pee Hole?

This is a common question among females. Shapewear comes in a variety of styles and types.

Since Shapewear comes in different styles and types. And  Not all shapewear has a pee hole in it, if you are looking for something easy, I would suggest you choose a pair of Spanx that is specifically designed with a pee hole.

Unfortunately, with a hole, it creates a hell of a mess while peeing. It is not a real solution. You will not be completely at peace with these either.

5 Ways to Prevent Peeing on Shapewear while Using a Bathroom

1. Using Tissue Paper

This trick is for shapewear with a pee hole. All you have to do is insert a toilet/tissue paper at the edges of the pee hole so that during peeing, your shapewear will not get dirty.

2. Keeping Your Legs Closed

If you have a longline shirt, you could try to pee with your legs closed. Tuck any exposed strings on the shapewear, and think before acting so you may not have to remove the outfit to pee.

3. Use a Medical Device

It is also recommended to use medical devices like the peeLUX that make peeing easy in shapewear. However, remember that it is also helpful for shapewear with pee holes. (2)

4. Squat at a 45 Degrees Angle

You can kneel at a 45-degree angle in tight-fitting shapewear styles like bodysuits or any figure-shaping lingerie while still keeping a little space between your thighs, allowing for convenient peeing. This is far more convenient than using the restroom while standing up with your legs touching.

5. DIY Pee Hole

Create one yourself if you have shapewear that does not have a pee hole.

However, it is not as easy as it seems… You must proceed cautiously, or your shapewear will be ruined. I would recommend consulting a tailoring and stitching specialist.
