Shapewear slips are designed to create a smooth, sleek silhouette under dresses and skirts and are especially useful under knits or other close-fitting fabrics. Using compression to hug the body, a slip smooths out bumps and bulges, accentuates the waist and even shapes the derriere. Many slips have a satiny smooth finish so that clothing glides easily without clinging or bunching. Styles range from full slips that fall at mid-thigh to high-waisted half slips and slips with built-in panties.
Full shapewear slips often have bust support, either underwire or a shelf bra. Some are constructed to cut under the bust, so you can wear your favorite bra and still get the control you want. Strapless full slips are ideal under everything from little summer dresses to evening gowns. Half-slips often feature all-over slimming in high-tech fabrics that are both lightweight and strong. Look for convenient features like silicone grippers along the hem to prevent ride-up or a nearly invisible laser cut hem. Curved side seams or vertical boning help accentuate natural curves while still providing shaping and control. The right shapewear slip can give all your knits and body-hugging dresses the perfect fit.
