There are two basic slips to choose from:
  • 1. Full body shaper dress: This is available in a strapless body shaper-style - which is ideal when you're wearing a tube or halter dress. If you're wearing a simple wrap dress or anything with long sleeves, go for the regular slip with straps.

  • 2. Half-slip skirt (looks exactly like a skirt). If you just need something to hold in your hips and thighs it will do the job.

I've already done the work for you by gathering the best brands and styles on one page! Before you shop, make sure to review my tips on selecting the best body shaper for your needs to ensure that that you'll get the most out of your money.

How to Buy a Body Shaper Slip

Keep the Neckline of the Dress in Mind

Just make sure that you don't show the undergarment when wearing the dress (unless it has a cute lace trim on top). Remember to take measurements of the top of the garment and compare it with the measurements of the body shaper you're buying.


If You Like Having the Freedom of Moving Your Legs a Lot

Consider purchasing panty girdles instead. They remind you of cycling shorts and are the perfect choice for active women or for those who tend to fidget with their clothes. Girdles are available in both panty and long leg styles.


Check the Bust Style

Most body shaper slips are made to minimize the bust, however if you want to enhance your breasts or create the illusion of bigger breasts to fill out a dress - look for padded busts or underwire for support if you already have large breasts.
