Average Figure

- Go Happily Strapless.
The Look:
While strapless may be summer's classic style, it's what's underneath that determines whether you're easy breezy or always pulling, pushing and double-checking your look. And because summer dresses are often figure-showing knits and cottons, some seamless all-over shaping can provide the sleekness you want. Isn't the whole point of summer dressing to make it no sweat?

Shoe solution: It's not quite like going barefoot, but Hue's Adhesive Foot Cloud cushions the ball of your foot, even in summers thin-soled sandals. It also keeps your foot from sliding forward in high-heeled and wedge summer shoes.

The Lingerie:
The Maidenform's One Fabulous Fit Strapless Bra s a 2-time Undie Award winner for best strapless bra. Customers praise its comfort as well as the perfect fit-- from sizes 32 to 38 and cups A-D. It stays in place and the silky microfiber fabric is perfect under lightweight summer clothes.

For that bit of shaping try Spanx Slim Cognito Shaping Mid-Thigh Bodysuit. Bra attachment straps help keep it in place and the seamless construction allows your slinky summer dresses to flow. The view from behind will be great too, with Spanx unique 'Great Divide' back.

Petite Figure

- Small Size, Big Style.
The Look:
With summer dressing, the whole idea is that less is more. What you'll want under little strapless dresses and skin-baring tops is defined cleavage even with low-cut tops, and a smooth stay-put fabric--without lots of rigid material. And when it's 90 degrees what could be cooler than the barest of thongs? If you haven't tried one yet, it may become your summer lingerie staple.

The Lingerie:
Felina's Bra Of The Year Convertible Deep Plunge Bra s a customer favorite. Sizes from A all the way through DD love the fit and comfort. Smaller-busted women appreciate the bump pads and everyone praises how well this bra stays put. The detachable clear straps make this one really versatile bra.

Say yes to the thong. Hanky Panky's Low Rise Thong wins hands down as the Undie Awards best panty. The wide stretchy lace waistband is not only comfortable, but helps make the thong virtually invisible under clothes. On hot summer days, this is almost like wearing nothing. The luscious colors will brighten up your lingerie wardrobe too.

Petite Plus-Size

- No-Show Lingerie for Summer Styles.
The Look:
Bare summer styles mean it's strapless time. The trick is to get the support and staying power you'll need, with a lower cut neckline, smooth silhouette and light shaping. Speaking of shaping, you don't have to shy away from form-fitting summer styles. A bit of control here and there allows soft knits and light summer fabrics to flow.

Shoe Solution: Who wouldn't love a little massage pillow for their feet? Hue Ball of Foot Massage Pillows invisibly absorb impact, prevent sliding and give your feet a mini-massage al day long--even under the strappiest of summer shoes.

The Lingerie:
Keep It Classic Strapless Underwire from Wacoal is just that--a lingerie classic. Customers love how well it stays put along with side-boning support and gentle shaping. Terrific under spaghetti-strap tops and strapless dresses.

To get the control and shaping summer knits need, try Flexees One Fabulous Waist Nipper Brief Panties. They provide control for tummy, waist and rear while giving your waistline more definition. Since they're sized from small to 2XL, you're sure to find a perfect fit.

Plus-Size

- Everyday Support, Style and Comfort.
The Look:
Light-weight, bare summer clothes can be a challenge. You'll still want support to keep you comfortable, but with stay-in-place strapless design and maybe even a little minimizing under clingy tops or narrow, low-cut summer styles. The body-skimming fabrics of summer mean some control and shaping too, with virtually invisible lines. Summer's the time to be comfortable, especially when you'd like to bare just a little more skin.

The Lingerie:
The Lilyette's Tailored Strapless Minimizer Bra provides a clean classic look and all the benefits of both a strapless bra and a minimizer. HerRoom customers love the way it shapes, fits and stays put. The seamless cups are invisible under clothes, too.

TC Fine Shapewear Just Enough Shapewear Boyshort really does offer just enough control. Smooth lines, a fabric that allows your clothes to glide and lightweight fabric make these boyshorts a great summer solution.
