Shapewear Covering The Mid Thighs To The Midriff

Mid Thighs To Midriff Shapewear CoverageOne of the most common styles of shapewear on the market is the sort that covers from the mid thighs to the midriff (the midriff being the area around your ribcage just under your bust). They are usually in the form of high waisted magic knickers (they look like cycling shorts that have a long body) but they can also be high waisted skirts or slimming bodysuits.

There are several things to look out for when buying this style of shapewear:

  • Coverage. This will vary according to your height. If you have very short legs they will finish closer to your knees, and if you are very tall in the body, they will finish further down your ribcage. Lengths also vary with the brand, for example the Trinny and Susannah Bum, Tum and Thigh Reducer covers a lot more than the Spanx In Power Line Super Higher Power.
  • Straps or no straps. Most high waisted magic knickers and skirts are supposed to stay in place without straps. They have a sort of wobbly waist band, sometimes lined with silicone, that should hold them up around your ribs. However, if you are quite tiny around this area you might find that these don’t stay in place and will roll down on you.
  • Gusset (such a gak word!). Most pieces of shapewear in this style have an opening gusset. This means that you don’t have to wressle them down to use the loo. Not everyone likes the opening gusset though so there are a few sorts that are high waisted but with a closed gusset (Trinny and Susannah Bum, Tum and Thigh Reducer).
  • Wearing them with a short skirt or dress? You need to be careful with this mid thigh style of shapewear as they can quite often peek under your hem. Either go for a shorter legged version, usually called a “Girl Short”, or go for a knicker legged version such as a pair of high waisted briefs.
