Panty Girdles


Panty girdles are excellent in tucking that extra flab around the hips, butt and thighs when you need it - fast. Compared to the old days, womens girdles have today become more refined and not least comfortable.

They're available in various styles; like for example the full body girdle that trims down your legs and up to your chest (it reminds you of a bodysuit) or the high waist girdle that extends from your thighs and up to your waist - cinching in your waist for that sought-after hourglass body shape.

Compared to shapewear slips, girdles are more practical. That's because they're designed as shorts to make it easier for your legs to move around under a dress or skirt. With a pair you can feel at ease, worrying less about how it sits under your clothing.

Most celebs are being caught all the time wearing shapewear so there's nothing to be ashamed of ;-)

Before you start shopping, take these factors into consideration:

How to Buy Panty Girdles

Get the Right Size

Find your measuring cloth and compare the measurements with the size on the item description of the girdles.

Tighter doesn't mean it will control you more. They're already made to fit snug. Too-tight shapewear can reduce the comfort and make it excruciating to wear. Not to mention that it can create extra flab around the edges.

However, if a shapewear is a little too big, it won't give the maximum effect so you will notice that it doesn't pull in as much as described.


Decide What You Want to Target

If you don't like the thought of having constrictive bodysuit full body girdles then look for other styles. If your waist is the problem go for high waist girdles. Or if your focus is on the butt go for shapewear briefs.


Consider buying girdles with open crotch hole

It might sound a little bit perverted but it's handy when you need to take pee without having to roll down the shapewear. Open crotch hole is also referred to as "hygienic hole".


Select the Right Girdle Style for Pants

Shapewear that starts at the thighs and up to your chest are best for pants. Most waist girdles leave an unwanted line or roll around the torso which might become visible if you wear a very fitted top. If you're worried about that opt for full body girdle that creates a smoother line around the waist.
