It’s no secret that shapewear has become a basic must-have for most women. They come in different types and transform ones look, boosting confidence.

When it comes to tight-fitting clothes and slinky fabrics, a shapewear (also known as a foundation garment or Spanx) can give you a confidence boost by helping smooth and contour your silhouette. 

The thing is, not a lot of women are aware of the different kinds available and what goes best for what outfit, that’s why I decided to make this post.


Back in the day, shape wear used to be too tight and it would push the fat in the wrong way, which was just not flattering. Worn properly, they should be relatively comfortable, and you don’t have to wear something that will totally change your shape. You can choose what spots to target.

It could be just your thighs, butt, stomach or multiple areas.

Let’s go into the best waist trainer for women shall we?

When purchasing a shapewear, always consider your size. You don’t necessarily need to go down a size. The idea is to smoothen areas out and create that silhouette I previously talked about. These under garments already have shapeshifting properties. You do not need to suffocate yourself all in the bid to get the desired results.

Bear in mind that too-tight shapewear may lead to health problems & If you are prone to bladder infections, or GI symptoms like reflux, wearing shapewear every day may not be such a good idea.

You can wear them under body con dresses or any outfit that will cling to your body. Be sure to do a sit test to check if you’re comfortable in it when you sit.

Now let’s get into the shapewear panty. Just like the waist trainer, these panties also play a role in making women look good in their outfits. They eliminate pant lines as well as smoothen out and hide those “areas” we don’t want anyone noticing.

They also help in accentuating the hips and butt. As with the waist trainers, do not get a size too small/tight as this will be uncomfortable and you’d end up dealing with those awful wedgies. Lol 😂

The benefits of wearing these undergarments are:

  • Instant slimmer curve.
  • Affordable alternatives.
  • Invisible under clothes.
  • Posture support.
  • Increase calories and exercise better.
  • Confidence and self-esteem.
  • Praise weight loss diet and fitness program.
