Made with boning technology, this body shaper gives you the look of a corset but without discomfort.

If you want a body shaper that will tone your bottom, this high-waisted panty will do the trick. Made with eco-friendly fabric, it will have you supported and enhanced in seconds.
Decide how much control you want
Shapewear comes in different degrees of control. Ask yourself what you want the shapewear to do will be able to help you narrow down the type of control that best suits you. If you want to lightly smooth and define your waist, you would need a lighter control shapewear. If you have more fat around the midsection and want to flatten the tummy, then shaping a camisole that offers firmer control will be able to suck and hold the tummy in.
Select the right size
It is best to measure your waist and hips using a measuring tape to get the correct measurement of your body. Do not size down your shapewear as it will only cause unsightly bulges and discomfort. Buying shapewear that is too big will not be able to offer a good fit. Shapewear should always fit snugly on your body and does not dig into your skin.
