About Popilush

What is Popilush?

They are an online women’s shapewear brand that empowers women and takes an inclusive approach to beauty. The brand’s mission is to celebrate women of all shapes and sizes, offering high-quality shapewear in a diverse range of sizes.

Is Popilush sustainable?

No, they likely are not. According to their About page, they are committed to reducing waste by following practices such as using textiles that biodegrade rapidly and minimizing plastic waste through their packaging practices. Since they don’t substantiate some of these sustainability claims, I am inclined to think they are green-washing. I can confirm, however, that some of my items arrived in biodegradable packaging.

Expectation: It isn’t what I was expecting in terms of overall appearance. The front and back are MUCH more narrow in person (in other words, less coverage on both the front and back sides than I expected). I did wear these backwards, but they are about the same width-wise on both sides.

Quality: In my opinion, the quality is pretty good. See my Quality Comparison & Rating Chart to know my current quality-rating standards.

Fit: I ordered based on the size guide provided, and it is not the right fit for my body shape (too big in the top, and too tight in the waist). View my Body Measurements for size reference.

Keep or Return: I would return this Popilush shapewear swimsuit.

While it feels overall well constructed, is double-layered, and the material feels pretty thick, the fit is not at all suitable for my body shape. The top’s band fits well, but everywhere else (the straps, cups, etc.) is too big. You can see lots of wrinkling and sagging. The bottoms also fit very strangely. The waist is AT LEAST one size too small, the coverage area in the front (and back) is one to two inches too narrow, and the overall length of the bottoms is MUCH too long. If I pulled them up all the way (like they are supposed to be), the waistband would come up to my upper-ribcage.

2) Denim Tummy-Control Bodysuit

  • Color, Size, and Cost: Blue / M / $59.99
  • Country: Made in China
  • Material: 77% Polyester / 23% Spandex

Expectation: It is exactly what I was expecting in terms of overall appearance.

Quality: In my opinion, the quality is good. See my Quality Comparison & Rating Chart to know my current quality-rating standards.

Fit: I ordered based on the size guide provided, and it fits on the tight size (I could probably size up). View my Body Measurements for size reference.

Keep or Return: I would return this Popilush shapewear bodysuit.

Regarding the positives, it is double-layered, unlined (no padding but compresses and holds up my chest well), gives me a great hourglass shape, the overall length is a good fit as it didn’t give me a wedgie, and it overall feels well made. As for the negatives, the fit isn’t perfect. The top half fits like a glove, and the bottom half is about one size too small. If this were one size bigger, I would probably keep this.

3) Built-In Shapewear Wide-Straps Mini Lounge Dress

  • Color, Size, and Cost: Light Brown / M / $74.99
  • Country: Made in China
  • Material:
    • Exterior- 92% Modal / 8% Spandex
    • Interior- 62% Nylon / 38% Spandex

Expectation: It is exactly what I was expecting in terms of overall appearance.

Quality: In my opinion, the quality is good. See my Quality Comparison & Rating Chart to know my current quality-rating standards.

Fit: I ordered based on the size guide provided, and fits about one size too small. View my Body Measurements for size reference.

Keep or Return: I would return this Popilush shapewear dress.

While I really like the way it looks from the front, the fact that it is double-layered, and has an open crotch making it easier to use the bathroom, the fit isn’t quite right. It is so tight that it almost straightens my figure and blends out any hourglass shape I have. If this were a size bigger, I would probably keep this.

Similar Sites & Analysis

According to Copyleaks (premium), the below plagiarism is detected:

Additional Notes:

  • They claim to be ‘body positive’ and loving of all bodies, yet they state things like, “Just slipping into shapewear first would get rid of the rolls, enhance your bust region, and define your curves perfectly”.
  • Lots of awkward sentences that read like a translator and thesaurus were used. This could be indicative of an overseas-run shop.

Do I Recommend This Shop?

Based on my experience, they are a legitimate company. I paid for my items, received them within the estimated time frame, successfully completed a return, and received a full refund.

With that being said, I would absolutely shop here again! 

The clothing seems to be good quality, the prices seem reasonable for shapewear, they use recyclable packaging (at least for part of my order), they have a very generous return window of 60 days, and the return cost is reasonable since the return address (provided to me) is in the U.S., and their customer service is SPEEDY and to the point! I am pretty satisfied with my overall experience.

To wrap up this review, regardless of my experience, be sure to read as many customer reviews as possible. If you found this post helpful in your search for Popilush reviews, please consider sharing and commenting (via Reddit) below. Have a great day!
