What Do The Washing Symbols Mean?


Have you ever asked yourself what do the clothing symbols mean? We guess a lot of times.

Read now ShapeWear SIZE’s washing machine symbols guide and use it daily!

Each clothing label should tell you what the fabric is made from, and include few symbols that let you know how to care for it.

Here’s our small essential guide to what each symbol means:


If the garment is machine washable, then you’ll either see dots or numbers inside the bucket symbol, representing the recommended maximum temperature: one dot means cold water, two dots warm water, and four dots hot water. If you find the hand wash symbol on your garment’s fabric care label, wash the item by hand at 30-40 °C (86-104 °F) or lower, or use your washing machine’s hand wash program.

If you want to enjoy your body shapers for a longer time, then wash them only by hand in lukewarm water.

 If you see an empty triangle, that means you can safely use bleach on your piece of clothing when necessary.

But don't bleach body shapers by ShapeWear SIZE.

Do not iron the shaping underwear!

If you DON'T want the shaping underwear to stretch, also to stay in high quality for a longer time, then DO NOT dry it in the dryer machine (use only dry flat).

But what do the washing symbols on clothes tags mean?
Well, you already know that these are brief instructions on how to take care of the good appearance of your clothes and underwear.
