Shape wear is one of those things that has two totally different sides. Our bodies are beautiful, no matter what shape or size, and we should embrace them proudly! Our curves and shape tell a story about us, and we wouldn’t want to cover that up. Shape wear brands have taken a whole new approach to the concept and have merged to a mentality of enhancing bodies, just as a little bit of lipstick would enhance a gorgeous smile. Another angle is that shape wear can be much more comfortable than an unsupported bra that might dig into the skin. When trying to find a way to add a little bit more support or comfort to your wardrobe, these selections may surprisingly be the solution.
Yes, shape wear can be comfortable! More comfortable, in fact, than an actual underwire bra. No wiring is going to be pressing because the bra within the bodysuit is wireless. Soft, subtle support is what you will get with this full body shaping piece. It scoops extra low, so options are endless when it comes to showing off your gorgeous back – go ahead and buy that daring dress.
Focusing specifically on smoothing the lower tummy, these compression shorts create a seamless comfort fit from below the belly button down to your lower thighs.

We love that this piece from Skims is all about enhancing our natural body shape. The barely-there soft fit ever so gently shapes the butt and waist while adding a little bit of lift to the chest.

The best part is that the fabric is designed to be breathable, so you likely won’t be sweating five minutes after putting this one on.
The high-waisted brief will not only help control the full abdominal region, but it leaves the legs free and clear to flaunt themselves!
