Do you find that you’re constantly spending money repurchasing bodysuits, underwear, leggings and other shape-wear every couple of months? It’s partially no surprise because these are the pieces in our wardrobe that receive the most attention – we wear and pair these items with pretty much everything on a daily basis. But what would you say if we told you that there’s a way to save money and shop smarter? 

Most shoppers’ first priority when purchasing new clothing – especially in this age of fast fashion – is to save as much money as possible. This leads to shoppers spending their money on items that are the most inexpensive in price, but also lack in quality material. Because of this, the items that they’ve purchased do not provide long term wear, and they soon notice that they’re right back at that same shop, repurchasing those same pieces once again. 

This is a common shopping habit that urgently needs to be broken. Many people do not realize that investing in higher cost clothing, usually made with higher quality material, will not only provide them with the long-wear that they need; but will take them from having to repurchase those items every couple of months to instead every couple of years. Essentially, saving them the most money. 

Because underwear, bodysuits, leggings and shape-wear are the items that we tend to reach for the most in our wardrobe, the best way to improve our shopping habits overall is to start by first changing our purchasing habits around these items. Here are seven amazing brands that carry quality shape-wear that will allow you to save the most money and provide you with the best cost-per-wear out of your items. 

  1. 1. SKIMS

SKIMS is a shape-wear brand that has been raved about since its release in 2019. It is beloved because you can find pretty much any and every item that you need – from panties, to bras, to waist trainers, to leggings – all made with the best quality, and available in a plethora of colors and shades. It’s best-selling shape-wear piece is the Mid Thigh Sculpting Bodysuit with the Open Gusset. This piece promises to hold in your core, conform to your butt and chest and smooth your upper thighs. 

  1. 2. Zara

Zara may not be in the shape-wear business per se, but they are doing great work when it comes to bodysuits. The brand first caught attention back in 2019 when their Halter-neck Bodysuit went viral. Many fashionistas shared that the piece will definitely be a long term staple in their closet, as it exudes quality composition and a versatile color range at an extremely affordable price. The brand also features other styles such as their Ribbed Bodysuit and Stretch Bodysuit.
