Shapewear Covering The Bottom To The Waist

Bottom To Waist Shapewear CoverageShapewear covering the bottom to the waist really only comes in the form of low waisted briefs/knicker/pants or thongs. Obviously these will only slim or shape the areas they touch, which at most is your bottom and tummy, so only choose this style if you are wanting control in those areas.

Things to take into consideration when choosing this style of shapewear:

  • Do you carry much weight around your waistline and tummy? If so these may not be any good for you. Most people with a bit of weight will bulge over the top of these and create what is known as the “muffin top” effect. This is not a good look and you may look much better without any shapewear on at all!
  • If you do need to go for this style due to your outfit, please do try to choose some with a non-binded waistband. Non-binded waistbands in general will sit flatter against your skin and are less likely to dig in a create bulges.
  • VPL (visible panty lines). If, like me you have a super squidgy bottom, be careful with this style of shapewear. As well made as most of the shapewear is, there is always the inevitable edging on knicker legs. This can dig in and create hideous VPL and again, you would be better off not wearing shapewear!

I don’t mean to sound all doom and gloom about this style of shapewear. I will admit that it is not for me, I am too overweight and squashy for this to help me. However, I know it can work really well on someone with a slimmer or more toned figure (like my Mum or eldest sister). They quite often just want to flatten their stomachs (not that I can ever see what they are worrying about!). My Mum always takes a little pair of Spanx Control Pants with her on hot holidays as they give her the tummy and bum slimming that she likes without all the hot trussing up of anything more substantial.
