Unwanted lumps & bumps. We all have them. But as ever, shapewear guru Spanx has come to the rescue once more, creating even more treats for our shaping collection and leaving us body confident in the process. From the ultra-lightweight to the gym bunny friendly, there?s even a pair of sheers to deliver a J-Lo inspired derri?re! Simply choose the shapewear that ticks most of your boxes and voila ? that enviable outline is a mere click away…
Proving that shapewear needn?t be clunky or overbearing, the ultra-thin Trust Your Thinstincts range combines all-round smoothing with a lightweight feel. What?s more, the clever designers at Spanx HQ have listened to our suggestions, adding in a non-compression bust to their tops & slips. Squash & squeeze free, the range is also equipped with nifty stay-put details for the best possible fit.
For those wanting to tackle tricky tummies, the Thong Body is a?must. Using a medium slimming level, the bodysuit will trim & slim in seconds, smoothing stomachs and skimming love handles. With adjustable straps and a non-compression bust that adapts to all cup sizes, the bodysuit is perfect for wearing underneath your work shirt or a slightly sheerer blouse for the evening (as the top can be disguised as an everyday camisole, shh!). If the idea of VPL (visible panty line) gives you chills, worry not as the silky microfibre thong sits incognito once on. If the ultra-thin quality appeals but you?re after more coverage, the Tank Full Slip from the collection is perfect. Ideal for both work & play, the full length slip also uses a medium control, but this time round the lightweight shapewear will lift bottoms and trim thighs alongside tums & muffin tops. To keep your slip in place, a bodysuit has been used underneath whilst a silicone hem grips against skin for a secure feel. Comfortable enough for everyday wear, the seam free slip will go under shift dresses and LBDs with ease, leaving those around you none the wiser. To avoid a Monday morning kerfuffle, Spanx recommend that you step into the slip instead of trying to put it over your head & neck.
As the first ever cotton shapewear range from Spanx, the Spoil Me Cotton collection is quite something. Possibly the softest way to slim yet, the breathable shapewear on offer will keep you refreshed in your hour (or day!) of need. Hectic schedules have met their shapewear match as the High Waisted Panty not only feels gorgeous but leaves behind a silhouette to be desired. Designed to streamline your figure from just below the bust to the bottom, the panty uses a medium control and a high cotton content to keep you body confident at all times. Offering full coverage for your derri?re thanks to a flattering cut, the panty also features visually slimming seams on the centre section which hug you in all the right places. What?s more, to up the ante when it comes to the tummy control, a double layer of fabric has been used. Phew!
Forever on the go but can?t bear to part with your Spanx? Making sure you don?t have to, shaping gurus Spanx have added the Shaping Compression Knee Pant to their active wear Active Bottoms collection. This is one product that I regularly wear, meaning no longer do I worry about bumping into a friend en route to the gym! Reaching to just below the knee, the sleek trousers offer a medium control to tame thighs & bottoms instantly ? leaving you to tackle that cross trainer in style. Unlike most trousers, these actually come without a middle seam as a clever curved one has been used instead. Narrowing hips & bums with the illusion, the flat lying seam provides that extra boost of confidence when you need it most (read: that dreaded spin class). When it comes to styling your knee pants, you can choose to wear them as a secret layer or by themselves ? or failing that, you can always pop them underneath your favourite shorts.
And last but by no means least, the Booty-full Sheer Tights. ?Working to give your derri?re the pert makeover that you dream of, the clever 20 denier sheers use a zoned control to lift & define. Concealing a medium shaping control in the boxer brief, the control will transform thighs and tums too whilst the specially designed contours (you?ll recognise these as heavily reinforced strips of fabric) will grant your booty an uplifted and youthful look. Ladies, these ought to be at the top of your lust have list for the season ahead!

Until next time ladies…
