Best types of shapewear
We have to wear panties every day, so why not wear a pair that doubles as a tummy-tucking panty. Shaping panties help to slim your waistline and tuck in your tummy and prevent that muffin top from forming.
Look for panties with control panels and a high waistline, which will provide firm control for your entire midsection, ideal for wearing under dresses, jeans, skirts and high-rise pants.
Hip reducer briefs or shorts
Smooth, slim out your thighs and hips and give your booty a little extra lift. This is one of the best body shapers you will ever invest in and will quickly transform into your favorite shaping panty. Naturally firming your butt, thighs, hips and waist. If you want a booty boost, look for a pair with an open bottom or a thong.
These are ideal for wearing under tight pants, dresses or skirts. Just make sure that the length of your shirt or shorts is long enough to prevent it from poking out from underneath.
For your strapless dresses, you will need a good quality bustier. It is something like a cross between a corset and a strapless bra. You will love the support for your girls, along with the slimming and smoothing support.
There are quite a few options for a bustier, some can be worn with your bra and others have a built-in hipster panty that provides compression for your thighs and hips.
If you love layering, then you will love the slimming cami. Often this type of shapewear for women comes with either a V-neck or a scoop neck. Whichever style you prefer, they will trim your sides and tuck in your tummy, plus adjusts to your body temperature.
Look for camisoles that are made from moisture wicking material and adjustable straps. Most styles can be worn out or under your clothes.
Tummy tucking slimming slip
This is the ultimate body shaper for women, erasing all signs of back rolls, muffin tops, bumps and lumps on your thighs. You will love the level of slimming a shapewear slip provides.
Look for styles that can be attached to your bra, to avoid sliding down and concealing that dreaded under boob bulge.
All-over control bodysuit
Sometimes, you need all over control to show off your silhouette and the all-over control provided by a bodysuit is your best choice. Providing total body slimming in only one piece of full body shapewear.
Make sure you look for shapewear bodysuits that have extra control panels and seamless edges, so they will look completely invisible even under the tightest figure-hugging dress.
Thankfully all of these styles are in all sizes including plus-size shapewear.
