Gone are the days of unforgiving shapewear that squeezes you to the point of suffocation. It’s no longer about flattening your figure nor is it about hiding what’s underneath your body-shaping garments. Today’s shapewear is all about lifting, smoothing, and enhancing your natural curves while keeping you both comfortable and confident. Plus, with the new range of supportive styles you can wear under almost anything — or on full display should you choose — you’ll be feeling like Beyoncé before you know it.

These shaping shorts smooth your thighs, butt, hips, and midsection with extra emphasis on the tummy. The high-waisted design has a zigzagged double-ply panel for targeted control without feeling too constricted and silicone bands along the edges to keep it from rolling in all the wrong the places. Available in nude and black; sizes S-2XL.
You probably already know Yummie for their shaping tanks, but what we love about this new style is its versatility. It has two built-in compression panels that offer targeted control where you want it most, whether on the tummy, love handles, back, or all around. All you have to do is change the way you wear it (aka one panel in the front and one in the back or both in the front or both in the back). It’s virtually invisible under clothes, but because it’s so inconspicuous, you can also wear it alone as a tank. Available in white, black, frappe; sizes XS-3X.
This lightweight, long-legged shaping suit is designed to smooth the entire body with zero lumps or bumps. It fits seamlessly under body-hugging dresses a la the Kardashians and stays in place better than sectional shapewear. Plus, it’s shockingly comfortable! Available in black and beige; sizes XS-3X.
Equal parts smoothing and sexy, this cheeky French design delivers medium compression in the tummy and waist. The lacy leg openings and boyshort-cut bottom not only add a feminine touch, but they prevent dreaded VPL, whether you’re wearing a skirt or skinny jeans. Available in nude and black; sizes XS-XL.
Keep in mind this top isn’t a compression piece. Made from hosiery yarns, it’s designed to smooth — not shape — the arms and bra-induced back fat. Wear it under long-sleeves or layer it under a sleeveless dress, like tights for your arms. Available in multiple colors; sizes XS/S-L/XL and 1X-2X.
