Shortee Back-Smoothing Ultra-Comfortable Foam-Cup Bra

Vassarette Comfortably Smooth Slip Short Panty

These shorts are lightweight and seamless so they'll smooth without feeling too constricting. Think of them as a layering bottom that you can wear under anything.

Flexees Maidenform Shapewear Hi-Waist Brief

No more muffin top: The firm fabric smooths your belly, and a silicon waistband helps keep everything in place.

Bali Shapewear Lace 'N Smooth Body Briefer

This one-piece holds everything in comfortably and stays in place better than sectional shapewear. With the bottom closure, you can pee without changing into your birthday suit.

Yummie Lena Tank

Throw on this style under tops to slim and smooth — it'll basically replace your everyday layering tank. The midsection has increased compression, but it still won't feel as constricting as regular shapewear.

Squeem Perfect Waist Contouring Cincher

The structured boning and smoothing fabric work together to give you an hour-glass shape. It may look like an old-school corset, but the hook-closure up the middle lets you adjusts the fit to your liking.

Miraclesuit Shape Away Extra Firm Control Torsette Bodysuit
$48.97 (28% off)

This firm style has the stay-in-place benefits of a bodysuit, but you can wear your own bra. Panels in the midsection give extra support and the bottom closure is another lifesaver in the bathroom.

Destination Maternity
Bounceback Post Pregnancy Tummy Transformer

The belly sleeve has wide coverage for smoothing without being uncomfortable for new moms who recently had a C-section or are waiting for the tummy to shrink post-delivery.
