Shapewear Styles

Shapewear comes in many different styles. They allow you the option of choosing where you want that extra support. They also come in different control levels. They go from light to extra firm control.

Body - Offers full coverage of the body and may include a built in underwire bra or soft cup. Most body shapers are bra sized.

If you wear a 36C bra, you would buy a 36C body shapewear.

Bust Style - Offers shaping that enhances the bust. This style is bra sized.

Hips - Offers support of the hips and tummy. Your size is based on the same size as your panty.

Thigh - Offers thigh shaping and tummy control. Usually is a long leg design with a special band to grip the leg and prevent it from rolling up. Size is determined by panty measurements.

Tummy - Offers tummy control with extra panel in the front that smoothes the tummy areas.

Waist - Offers shaping to create a smooth contour of the waist. Usually comes up to the bottom of your bra.
