The Best Shapewear for Every Outfit
Here, we break down the best shapewear option for every look: skinny jeans, a strapless dress, a pencil skirt, and more.
Clingy wrap dress
It's not easy to feel slim in such a tight dress. To the rescue: an all-in-one micro-thin full-body shaper slip like the TC Fine Intimates Even More Full Slip Torsette ($72; barenecessities.com) that lets you wear your own (most flattering) bra.
Off-the-shoulder (or strapless) little black dress
A super-slim, narrow fit shows everything, from tummy overhang to a rear that needs a little firming. You need new, not-your-mom's control-top tights with a high firming panel, Schwartz says. Try Hanes Hosiery Silk Reflections Ultra Sheer High Waist Control Top Tights in Black ($28; amazon.com).
Dress with a plunging neckline
Sheer or lace T-shirt
This wearable trend isn't too risqué if you slip on a long (so it won't ride up), smoothing, opaque camisole underneath, Altman notes. We love one of Rachel Zoe's "Major Must Haves" from Jockey—the Strappy Tank ($39; amazon.com). The bottom and top are knit T-shirt material, so if they peek out, no one can tell you're shaping.
