Today, August 10, is National Shapewear Day! (Yes, there’s a day for that.) During this day, carve out some time to explore the vast world of shaping garments outside of a tummy control brief.

Shapewear offers a world of creative solutions to your wardrobe struggles. You can shop for shapewear that holds you where you want that extra hug. And, you’re able to browse unique cuts. There are also options for different levels of control to shop. 

Feel free to opt for something with less of a hold to smooth out your curves. Or, go all the way with a high-power sculpting piece.


This National Shapewear Day try out HoneyLove’s CrossOver Bra + SuperPower Short Bundle. By shopping this bundle you save 15 percent off of the usual $158 price. As the product name says you’re getting a smoothing bra as well as the shaping shorts. 

The bra is free of underwires and has adjustable straps. It features bonded support technology that keeps you lifted to a comfortable height. Plus, there are panels along the sides of the bra to prevent any bubble over. 

As for the SuperPower Short, it’s the piece that can go under any dress, skirt, or pair of pants.These high-compression shorts run from under the bra line to  land just past the mid-thigh line. From the hip creases up to the waist you’ll be held in 360 degrees. The outer legs on the shorts are made of mesh so that you can avoid chafing while letting your thighs breath. 

It’s available in six color choices in sizes XS to 3X.


WACOAL’s Red Carpet Medium Control Convertible Bodysuit is a versatile wardrobe staple. It’s a bodysuit that comes with adjustable, and removable, straps. It features hook-and-eye closures behind the bust as well as under the cotton gusset. 

At the top there are molded cups that stay up on their own when you need them to. The whole thing is made of a medium control mesh for a breathable hold. To grab yours, shop by your bra size. 34C to 40G are available in two neutral colors.

If you get annoyed when your shapewear shifts, this Skims Open Bust Thong Bodysuit is for you. As an open bust bodysuit it’s sort of like wearing a control thong with comfortable suspenders. 

The hi-cut thong avoids visible panty lines under your clothes. Meanwhile, from under the arms to all around the waist, the supportive nylon-spandex fabric gives your waist a firm hug. 

All you have to do is step into this shapewear piece and adjust the straps to what you feel secures this bodysuit in place.
