The 25 Best Shapewear Pieces To Shop Right Now

While shapewear may well be a contentious issue with several people regarding its very nature – that is, tweaking ourselves into an alternate form – problematic, at GLAMOUR HQ we are firmly of the opinion that feminism is all about choice.

It goes without saying that no one should squeeze themselves into lycra because of the pressures to look a certain way in society, but we appreciate having the option of smoothing the surface beneath a silk slip dress ourselves and, if you do too, then you’re in the right place. Shapewear should be empowering

There’s multiple reasons as to why solutionwear is something we’re all reaching for these days; perhaps we’re not feeling as confident after the last two years we’ve been through, maybe we want our outfit to look more seamless, or maybe we just like the support it gives.

There’s another possible reason for the shapewear frenzy, too: Kim Kardashian. Skims (the “solutionwear” brand that she founded back in 2017) became available to shop in the UK for the first time ever in 2020, and the internet went wild. So much so that a tonne of pieces – like the popular sculpting shorts and plunge bras – sold out within an instant. Hardly a surprise, considering she has an impressive Instagram following of 189 million people and the pieces start from just £22.

Luckily, most of the SKIMS best-sellers are in stock at Selfridges, and there’s a whole plethora of other shapewear brands (just as good) waiting to be shimmied into. So why should you? Shapewear nowadays is designed with every body and skin tone in mind – something we love. There are tons of different tonal hues available across various brands, and most of them are available in sizes from XXS to 5XL. Far from frumpy or old-fashioned, shapewear encompasses everything from cami tops and thongs to full blown bodies, slip dresses and high-waisted shorts which are all designed to flatter every curve, make you feel confident and follow your natural figure.

If you’re still sceptical, note that shapewear has come a long way from being an embarrassing secret for the body conscious. In fact, if you’ve ever worn shapewear before, you’ll know that a good piece can really make you feel as though you’ve hit the lingerie jackpot. It’s not about conforming to standards prescribed by others, but rather making yourself feel your most confident; in the same way a flash of red lipstick or a bleached-root touch-up would. And we all know they’re not natural looks either.

In celebration of self love, we’ve made an edit of the very best shapewear around – that’s still in stock, too. Alongside Kim’s wonder-working pieces, you’ll find the best from the likes of M&S, Spanx and more. Just please remember that everyone – and we mean everyone – has insecurities. These differences are what makes you you, and what makes your friend your friend, your mum your mum, and your sister your sister. And you wouldn’t expect them to conform to body standards if it made them uncomfortable, would you?
