Hi-cut shapewear panties have higher than average leg openings, lengthening the leg and minimizing panty lines. Moderate and firm control panties are usually constructed with a panel to add extra tummy control, while providing all-around shaping. You'll find hi-cut styles in a variety of rises. Choose a high rise, sitting above the waistline, if you want to smooth out muffin tops. Lower rise styles are perfect under today's low-rise pants and skirts. Whatever style you prefer, you'll benefit from a trimmer tummy, perkier rear and a smooth leg line.
