Long leg or thigh shapers are perfect for slim trousers or close-fitting skirts and dresses. Not only do they provide tummy taming, hip slimming and sometimes a little lift in the rear, they smooth out the top of the thigh. To get a really invisible look, try seamless long leg shapewear. Knit the same way hosiery is knit on specialty knitting machines, seamless long leg styles come in all levels of control and sometimes have firmer control for trouble spots, like love handles or muffin tops. Seamless long leg shapewear will usually feature perfectly flat waistbands and silicone grippers to keep garment in place. The leg openings are fused or held in place with silicone grippers. Look for silky smooth fabrics that clothes glide over and a split crotch for convenience when you need it. Some styles feature a high waist, providing control for the entire torso. There are also capri-length and legging styles, an ideal match with long tops or even short skirts.
