High-waist shapewear panties eliminate tummy bulges and give you a smooth unbroken look from torso to thighs. Since shapewear is meant to hug you firmly, panties sitting at your natural waist can sometimes look and feel like they're cutting you in half. High waisted shapewear panties solve that with control for midriff, hips, tummy and rear. Many styles are made with gripper strips or dots along the top to keep your shapewear firmly in place. Some styles are surprisingly lightweight, while still providing firm control. Look for seamless construction or seamless sides to keep your high-waist panties invisible under clothing.
