The Best Shape-wear to Enhance Your Silhouette!

After my second pregnancy, I tried many shapewear and belly bands to support my belly and help give me “slim” silhouette. But, I must say, some of them were uncomfortable because the materials or the design were just off. I was tempted and lured by many shapewear ads, and I also know that you can't rely just on shapewear to get back in shape since it is temporarily. So I tried and tested, here's a list of my favourites:

First up, the Spanx OnCore Mid-Thigh Bodysuit. This bodysuit is an excellent option for those looking for full-body coverage. The compressive design targets the tummy, hips, thighs, and rear to create a smooth silhouette. Plus, the lightweight, breathable fabric is comfortable to wear throughout the day. It provided me with lots of support and I was able to breath the whole day which is obviously important!

Another favorite of mine is the SKIMS Sculpting Seamless Bodysuit. This bodysuit features a seamless design that smooths out lumps and bumps. The comfortable, stretchy fabric hugs the body and provides support, I just love the feel of the fabric.

If you are looking for something that targets the tummy area specifically the Maidenform Tummy-Control Shapewear Brief is an excellent option. The tummy panel provides extra support and flattens the tummy area, and the comfortable, stretchy fabric provides all-day comfort. I used this later on in my postpartum journey since it was just too uncomfortable when I was a bigger size, could be also that I purchase a size too small.

Finally, the Yummie Seamless Shaping Brief is another excellent option for tummy control. The high waistband provides extra support and smooths out the tummy area. This is my go to as I love the seamless look under the clothes. I am still wearing it now even though I am a lot fitter and slimmer. It hugs the body very nicely and I absolutely love the waistband support.

Choosing the right shapewear can be overwhelming, but I've been there, trust me! Just remember to select shapewear that fits well and is comfortable throughout the day. We all have different bodies and needs and with the options discussed above, you're sure to find something that suits your needs!
