Having a snatched waist is a year-long commitment. Your shapewear has to be able to hold you in any time you want to contour your curves. That includes the summer season.

But, in the summer, shapewear can easily get sticky and moist. Fortunately, breathable shapewear exists. There is a wide variety of styles available. Especially in silhouettes that can stay hidden under your favorite summer fits.


Skims first launched with a line that included shapewear. Over the years the brand has expanded to include unique shapewear pieces. The Solution Short Right Leg Exposed is one of them. And, yes there’s a Solution Short Left Leg Exposed.

It’s a high-waist sculpting short that cuts off at the hip, just above the right leg. And, there’s silicone banding to prevent rolling at the waist.

This short has a strong level of compression. Plus, the nylon-rich fabric lets moisture leave your body as you strut in the summer heat.


Do you know what makes you hot in the summer? Layers. For the most breathable experience try Yummie’s Short Sleeve Shaping Thong Bodysuit. 

It’s a thong bodysuit that has built-in temperature control technology and a hidden tummy control panel. It also has a snap closure so you can easily go to the bathroom when nature calls. 

This wardrobe staple comes in black and white in three sizes: S/M, M/L, and L/XL.

Yummie’s One Shoulder Shaping Thong Bodysuit takes the popular fashion trend to a functional level. This one-shoulder variation boasts similar features to the other Yummie bodysuit on this list.

It features a hidden tummy control panel, temperature cooling technology, and a snap closure. This Yummie bodysuit is only available in black in S/M, M/L, and L/XL.

Spanx OnCore Open-Bust Panty Bodysuit

Over time Spanx has become a household name in the world of shapewear. The OnCore Open-Bust Panty Bodysuit is one of those pieces that only Spanx could think of. 

It’s basically a high-waist brief with straps. Or, you could think of it like a bodysuit with the bust cut out. Either, this is a piece of shapewear that offers a firm hug around the waist to keep you snatched this summer. 

From the full coverage brief bottom, the entire piece contours your waist up to where you slide your arms though. That way you get some back smoothing too. And, it features a hook-and-eye closure for hassle-free trips to the restroom.
