This post is long overdue. I literally thought to myself, “you can tell everyone what you’re wearing but you don’t tell people what is underneath.” I guess I told myself off! Some of the shapewears below you may have heard of, but this post is different because these 5 shapewear essentials are also seasonally based. What I wear under a dress in the Summer time may not be the same garment I wear in the Winter.
Tights are a girls bestfriend AND control tights are the absolute best thing in the WORLD! These located here are seriously my new favs. These go on without a hitch and last a very long time. I love to wear tights in the cold months, because I get to give my shapewear a break.
Spanx (Thigh Length)
Spanx are located here I know, I know you are probably tired of hearing about how great a good pair Spanx are, but I can not deny the fact they are awesome lightweight shapewear. I usually wear Spanx with jumpsuits because it smooths everything out. Spanx are perfect for the Spring and Summer time because they are light and airy.
These are located here and are perfect year round!!! I wear the panty spanx under work slacks, tights that are not control tops, jumpsuits, and leggings. Occasionally wear my panty spanx with too short dresses because my thigh length shapewear is too long (see above picture) to control my stomach and booty.
These are located here and have to be the best kept secret in AFFORDABLE shapewear. Only $13!!! I absolutely positively love these because they make bodycon dresses worth while! The boning in the back helps them stay up and the gripping in the leg area prevents them from rolling up. Now I highly recommend these for the Fall and Winter, because they do not have ventilation.
Lane Bryant Shapewear
These located here are perfect with flowy maxi dresses and skirts. These are super light but controls the giggle and restricts inner thigh rubbing. Now these are not heavy duty so don’t count on them sucking everything in, because they are light weight.
