Shapemate Essential Tips
We are aware that improper maintenance can cause irreversible damage to a bag, and our product designers make precise calculations for the space structure of each bag and hence suggest below to keep in mind while choosing and using your shapemates:
Tidy Up Shapemates are as flexible as you need them to be. Use one or stack them horizontally or vertically for a perfect fit. You can use a single piece or mix and match sizes in any bag.
Always choose a product whose dimensions are slightly smaller than your bags external measurements.
Bags with center partition: choose a product whose width is less than half the width of your bag. You can place a shapemate on each side of the bag.
Hardbound bags: choose a product whose measurements are 1 inches larger than your bags measurements.
Round and differently shaped handbags: please mix and match shapemates as per your need.
Never over-stuff your bag, this will ruin the bags shape.
