Finding the Best Shapewear For You

Finding the Best Shapewear For You

This post is sponsored by Kohl’s. I received the included shapewear as compensation.

It wasn’t until recently that I became a shapewear believer. When thinking about shapewear in the past, words like uncomfortable and unsexy would come to mind. It wasn’t until my cousin’s wedding two years ago that I learned just how wrong I was. My cousin chose strapless, mermaid-style gowns for her bridesmaids. I realized right away that none of the undergarments I owned would work with the dress, so I knew I would have to go shopping. On what I thought was an unrelated trip to Kohl’s to buy new towels, I stumbled up their shapewear section. I was seriously blown away by the selection, and I was shocked to see so many different fabrics and textures. From that moment on, I started wearing shapewear regularly.

As I said, the Kohl’s shapewear department is unreal. There are so many pieces, brands, and sizes to choose from. Most people think of shapewear as an afterthought, but it really can make or break a look. I love being able to wear dresses or form-fitting clothes, without worrying. With shapewear, all of your looks can be seamless.

The three pieces of shapewear I wear the most are the ASSETS Red Hot Label by Spanx Sleek Slimmers Tank Slip, the Bali Firm Control Lace Briefs, and the Bali Lace N Smooth Firm-Control Body Briefer. The ASSETS Tank Slip is great because it can be worn underneath virtually any dress. The silhouette makes it extremely comfortable, and it hugs your curves perfectly. The material is so soft and breathable. I honestly forget I’m wearing it.

The Firm Control Lace Briefs have been a complete game-changer. I love wearing high-waisted pants and skirts, and these briefs make sure my waist looks perfectly smooth. Before discovering these briefs, I would be left with obvious panty lines, which was a huge no-no.

My third and final favorite piece of shapewear is the Bali Lace N Smooth Firm-Control Body Briefer. What drew me to this piece initially was the fabric and color. I just thought it was so beautiful. I was happy to find out pretty quickly that not only does it look amazing, but it also makes my clothes fit amazing. I love that the straps are adjustable and the built-in underwire cups.

If you’re on the market for shapewear, I highly recommend heading to Kohl’s or Their selection is endless, and they carry all the best brands in shapewear from Bali to ASSETS Red Hot Label by Spanx to Maidenform.
