Look, shapewear might not seem sexy – but the effect it has definitely is! Shapewear comes in all sizes and skin tones now, so no one has to get left out. It’s nice to be able to smooth out areas you’re self conscious about or just offer a little more support to the girls for a special night out. I got one of the SKIMS shapewear bodysuits, and I haven’t looked back since. We made it easy for you and rounded up the best shapewear on the market!
This is the product that launched my love of SKIMS: the sculpting bodysuit with snaps! I love wearing it with my more fitting dresses when I need the extra burst of confidence. On a more everyday basis though, the sculpting mid brief is great and the sculpting short are my go-tos when it comes to a skirt. And it’s not shape wear, but their viral lounge dress is perfect for Netflix and chilling on the sofa.
But, if you’re not down with SKIMS, there’s plenty of other shape wear out there! Let’s start with the heavy-duty, full bodysuit stuff. Before there was Skims, there was Spanx! I love this plunging low-backed bodysuit for the more daring of us. Their Power Shorts offer medium support and slim your tummy, plus the grip means it won’t roll down.
If you’re looking for a more supportive option, this TC Fine Intimates bodysuit has underwire to keep the girls lifted! I also love the smoothing panels at the waist and tummy for a sleeker you. Wacoal is one of my go-to bra brands, and their thoughtful shape wear bodysuit even comes with a minimizer! And in case you have a strapless dress, this Red Carpet Body Briefer can keep you lifted in all the places you want to be.
