These seven shapewear staples are sure to elevate your closet. 

Nothing has the potential to ruin a fly outfit faster than a poor fit or a visible panty line. Now that we’re entering into the colder part of the year, most of us will be covered up a bit more. But more fabric doesn’t mean you won’t want to look your best at the New Year’s Eve party. Shapewear can help you make sure your lines are clean, your curves are accentuated. Check out our picks for the best shapewear for your winter wardrobe.

This long sleeve bodysuit is not only shapewear, this doubles as the perfect essential item for any wardrobe. It can go under a fly coat or with a nice pair of jeans. It also works well to hold you during the postpartum healing process. This piece is bra free but lifts and shapes your chest area. And while it will provide a nice hold, it’s easy to remove.

If you’re stepping out and need to make sure that you’re making an impression from all angles, this bodysuit is a great idea. It lifts your behind, making it appear fuller and rounder. This removes any lines so you can wear anything tight-fitting. This lycra fabric can be stretched easily but also rebounds well. 

Strapless Options

This slip is best because of its versatility. The straps are adjustable and removable so this slip works under many types of dresses. The shape creates a curve between your waist and hips. And if you’re worried about overheating and perspiration, this material is moisture-wicking to ensure that you’re cool and dry as long as you’re wearing it.

This cupped bodysuit is perfect for those sleeveless dresses where your décolletage is the star of the show. This suit has a low back so if your dress hangs a bit, you’re still good. The removable straps mean you can wear the back in five different ways: traditional, racerback, crisscross, halter, and strapless.

This bodysuit is high-waisted and designed to support your back as it smoothes your abdomen area. One of the best features of this suit is the fact that it has a crotch opening so you can use the restroom without having to remove the whole thing. 

With these high-rise shorts, you don’t have to worry about any type of slippage. This waistband will not slide down. These shorts promise to smooth and hold you in. And there’s also an opening in the crotch so you won’t be scrambling to shimmy out of these when you have to use the restroom.

This shaper has a built-in underwire bra so you don’t have to put on an additional piece of clothing. It lifts your breasts and creates an hourglass figure that is sure to compliment your outfit. There are two panels in the abdomen area but it’s still breathable.
