Got a wardrobe hang-up? Good news—there’s shapewear for that.
Falke Bra Top
If you have a large bust but hate the way “maximum control” sports bras look...
Try Falke’s bra top. The double layered maximum support fabric and stylish full back keep everything secure and in place, no underwires, bulky clasps, or other gimmicks needed.
To buy: $88, luisaviaroma.com.
Yummie Tummie Dawn Wire Free Contour Bra
If you find underwire bras uncomfortable, but feel like bandeaus and bralettes don’t offer enough lift (or separation) ...
Try Yummie Tummie’s wire-free contour bra. Slightly padded, molded cups create shape and support—no wires required—and the extended band keeps it in place and comfortable all day long.
To buy: $38, yummielife.com.
TC Shapewear Just Enough Seamless Camisole
If you want light control that is comfortable enough to wear all day long...
Try TC Shapewear’s “Just Enough” camisole. A lightweight, seamless cami you can wear under anything (also available in nude), this tank’s front panel offers, as the name suggests, just enough control to create a smooth look beneath a top, but not so much that you feel constricted. A built-in shelf bra with molded cups is an added bonus.
To buy: $50, neimanmarcus.com.
Athleta Stealth Capri
If you wish you could wear shapewear to the gym...
Try Athleta’s “Sculptek” line. While not technically “shapewear,” their innovative new technology stretches in both length and width to solve the problem of tight spots and pinching, while strategically placed compression panels create a sculpted silhouette.
To buy: $89, athleta.com.
Spanx Faux Leather Black Leggings
If you love the look of leather leggings, but worry that they'll be tight and unforgiving...
Try Spanx’s Faux Leather Leggings. Convincing look-alikes made with the same shaping technology you already love Spanx for, these are a win-win (and available in three colors).
To buy: From $98, spanx.com.
Cosabella Low-Backed Bodysuit
If you have a top with a low back and don’t know what to wear under it...
Try Cosabella’s low-backed bodysuit. The full-body construction means it will stay in place (even if you completely remove the straps for bare-shouldered looks), and the “V” cut out between the cups means it works well for blouses that dip low in the front, too.
To buy: $148, shopbop.com.
