Use the Bare Necessities Guide to Shapewear to find the best fit for you:



Determine What Size of Shapewear You Need

One of the biggest misconceptions about shapewear is that you should buy the smallest size possible, but if you buy shapewear that’s too small, you’re either going to feel wildly uncomfortable and/or end up with more bulges than fewer. The whole point of shapewear is to smooth yourself out, not suck yourself in. When you choose the right size, you won’t find the garment rolling down, and you won’t have to constantly pull and tug it into place.


Find the Right Level of Shapewear Control:
Light, Medium, or Firm

It doesn’t have to feel like armour to work! Shapewear comes in different compression levels. Shapewear isn’t meant to sculpt your body but to make your clothes fit better and smooth you out. For example, light control shapewear can be great for first-timers or everyday use. Heavy control shapewear works for a wedding or a night out when you plan on wearing it for a shorter length of time.


Light Control Shapewear

With a smidge more coverage than your average underwear, choosing from our light control shapewear options is as easy as getting dressed. Pull on a seamless tank or a sexy bodysuit—bet you didn’t know that they’re the definition of a light control body shaper, offering slight smoothing that’s comfy all day long.


Medium Control Shapewear

A smooth, trim silhouette? Check and check. Medium control shapeware lets you flaunt your curves with confidence and without sacrificing comfort. Pieces like open-bust camis, half slips and leggings have literally got you covered.


Firm Control Shapewear

Seeking extra support in life? Firm control shapewear will lift you up, smooth you out and keep everything right where you want it. With cutting-edge designs and sexier-than-ever silhouettes to decide from, these styles go boldly from day to night.

Choose Among Shapewear Styles to Suit Your Outfit

You can also select shapewear by what outfit you’re wearing. If you’re looking for something to go with a wrap dress, try a shapewear slip. For everyday shapewear, consider shaping briefs. For clingier outfits where you don’t want visible panty lines, go with a shapewear thong.


High Waisted Control Panties

Everything old is new again, and nothing says retro glamour these days like a pair of high waisted control panties. The shape of tummy control underwear flatters your figure, and they’re about as comfortable as it gets. Sometimes, more is more.


Thigh Slimmers

Such a smart invention: A thigh slimmer is thigh shapewear that can turn shorts, pants, skirts or dresses from snug to slinky. If only everything in life could be smoothed out as easily.


Open Bust Shapewear

Need a little smoothing but still want to wear your usual bra? An open bust body shaper is the answer. You get the same shaping and support up top while slimming your waist, thighs and bum, with no weird flattening or squishing in the wrong places.


Shapewear Leggings

Did you know that slimming leggings are a thing? Not only are they form-fitting, comfortable and stylish, shapewear leggings also make your legs look their absolute best. They’re pretty much the perfect pants.


Thong Shapewear

Looking for tummy control without visible panty lines? The solution is simple. A thong body shaper comes to your booty’s rescue. Helping to tone and tighten, thong shapewear streamlines your silhouette while making it look like you’ve got nothing at all underneath that body-conscious dress.


Shaping Bodysuit

The bodysuit is the new camisole. Paired with a blazer or the perfect pair of jeans, the only way it can be any better is if it’s also is a body shaper. From racy and lacy to straight-up shapewear, you can stock your drawers full of all the smoothest, latest and greatest.


Control Top Pantyhose

These aren’t your mama’s control top pantyhose. Think of them as a high-tech version that flattens and flatters your tummy and bum while creating that lovely airbrush effect on your legs. Pick a pair in every color so you’re always prepared.


Shaping Panties

Slimming and stylish, our shaping panties are the simplest kind of shapewear. You’re already wearing undies—you might as well get the double-duty slimming effect from a pair of control top panties.


Slimming Camisoles

A shapewear camisole smooths you in all the right spots, four seasons a year. Wear these slimming tank tops alone or layered underneath a jacket or sheer shirt. You’ve got to ask why you would ever wear a tank top that doesn’t multitask again.


Slimming Pants

Your search for the perfect pair of control pants is over. These shaping versions work harder than the typical trouser. These slimming pants look stylish while sculpting legs, and you never feel like you’re wearing shapewear at all. You’ll want to stay in them long after clocking out.


Shapewear Slips

What if coverage for a sheer dress or skirt had an added benefit? Enter the shapewear slip that looks as flirty as the original. The difference: The body-conforming version won’t bunch up on you mid-stride, so you always look polished and put-together.
