Likely your lingerie drawer is overflowing with properly-fitted bras and comfortable underwear, but have you caught on to the shapewear trend?

Dating back to ancient times and the girdle, shapewear has changed tremendously over the years. Once used to change one’s body shape and create false curves, this form of lingerie is now used as a starting point to making outfits look more seamless – while remaining true to your natural bodytype.

Whether you’re a size 0 or 22+, shapewear works for all bodies, giving a streamlined base for outfits and making your clothes fit better. With the ability to flatter you in all the right places, shapewear is a clothing essential for most.

With bodysuits, shorts and bras to choose from, it can be tricky knowing which brands and styles are best.

The world of shapewear can feel overwhelming, so we’ve rounded up shoppers’ top picks below.

Spanx

Starting the shapewear revolution, Spanx has been around for decades – and for good reason. Helping women everywhere feel more confident and comfortable, their high rise briefs are a fan favourite for anyone looking for a little more support.
