We almost all have an area or two on our bodies that we wished was smaller or simply have a desire 

to look better in the clothes that we wear. For those of you out there, like me, that have a little extra in the tummy, hips or thighs that have been searching for a solution then slimming undergarments may be just what you are looking for.

There are a lot of options out there for women's body shapewear. Amongst those products you will find universal garments designed for use with any clothing option (dresses, pants, skirts, shorts) that target several body areas or more specific slimming undergarments such as panties made to slim just the tummy or lift the buttocks areas.  Here are some of the garment styles available that will help you to look thinner, more sculpted and feel more confident in your clothes.


Slimming Undergarments - Body Shapewear Styles (Browse Body Shapewear)

Boy Shorts - This style is designed for a little extra coverage and support. These shorts offer compression in all the right areas leaving you looking more slender in the tummy and with the right pair - the  hip area too. 


Hi Cut Briefs - These slimming undergarments more directly affect the stomach area. So if this is your problem area (as it is with most women) then this may be something to consider when shopping for shapewear for women. These garments can be worn with all clothing from jeans to dresses. Make sure that the compression is strictly in the abdominal areas though (when wearing jeans) - we want a slimmer tummy not a flat derrier. 


Full Briefs - Much like the hi cut briefs - full briefs offer built in compression panels that target the stomach area but with the cut of this slimming undergarment it also offers some additional body sculpting help in the hip areas as well. 


Knee Length Body Suits - This style of body shapewear for women is one of the most popular choices amongst the ladies for best overall firming. The cut typically offers support in all major problem areas such as the hips, thighs, tummy and buttocks. With the length of this garment it is easy to wear with most outfits. The most common style features a tank styled top with spaghetti strap sleeve some with and some without a built in underwire support. 


Bathing Suit Cut Body Shapewear - For those struggling to cover up those muffin top figures or those who need just some mild shape control in those areas this slimming undergarment can be ideal. Overall it offers a form fitting fit with a hi cut brief leg opening for optimal comfort. 


Long Shorts Body Shapers are more for those looking for additional support and sculpting in the stomach, thigh and butt areas. The long short extends between waist and just above the knee area and offers mild compression, smoothing and firming in the buttock, thigh and abdominal areas. Perfect under long skirts, dresses and most pants. 


Corsetty Style Tops and Vests - These tops offer some extra smoothing in the midriff and also most often back areas. For those women who wish they had a more sleek looking back area this may be the solution. The styles can vary and some will feature built in breast support while others will be cut under the breast areas and designed for use with your own bra. 


Tank Tops - Perfect for wearing under nearly any shirt style these tops can offer bust control as well as a sleeker looking tummy area. 


The above are just some of the most popular styles of body shapewear for women. There is, however, a much larger selection of colors, designs and styles so shop around and find the slimming undergarments that best target your own individual "problem areas".
