Shapewear Covering The Mid Thighs To The Waist

Mid Thighs To Waist ShapewearShapewear covering the mid thighs to the waist usually comes in the form of low waisted magic knickers. These look like tight cycling shorts that finish at your waist (not covering it). The most well-known brand of these is the Spanx Power Panties which are favourites of celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow and Oprah Winfrey, (must be good!).

There are several things to bear in mind when buying this style of shapewear:

  • If you carry a lot of weight around your waist and tummy you will probably bulge over the top and create what is known as the “muffin top” effect. If you are prone to this always go for a high waisted version, such as the Spanx In Power Line Super Higher Power.
  • If you do carry weight around your waist but need to go for a low waisted version because of your outfit, always look for a non-binded waistband as that will sit flatter against your waist and will hopefully not create the dreaded bulge.
  • The gusset on this style of shapewear is almost always closed, so you will need to pull them down to use the loo. This usually isn’t a problem as they don’t tend to get in the way of your clothing.
  • The leg coverage will vary person to person, depending on the length of your thighs. If you are very short in the leg they may come down too far on your thighs.
  • Take care if you are wearing a short skirt or dress as the legs might show under the hem of your outfit. Many a celeb has been caught out by the paparazzi flashing their mid thigh shapewear under their dresses! If in doubt I would always recommend wearing a version of shapewear with a knicker leg, it saves a lot of blushes.
