Women who prefer the look and feel of thongs, yet still want some tummy control and a shaped figure are in luck. Manufacturers today offer many styles of waist cinching shapewear with thong backs. High waisted and corset style waist cinchers tone torso, tummy and hips, using compression and stretch fabrics. They not only slenderize, but offer back support which keeps you from slouching. Some styles also incorporate boning or side shaping bands.The minimal rear coverage of the thong back means no panty lines. Another advantage to the thong style of waist cincher is, while controlling tummy, it doesn't flatten the derriere, accentuating your natural curves.
