Panties with shapewear? Is it a no-go or are there exceptions to the rule? Most of the time, we find that our shaping briefs, shorts, and bodysuits are underwear in their own right. No need for extra layers that can cause lumps and bumps!
With slips, skirts, leggings and tank tops, however, feel free to slip on some lightweight panties if it makes you feel more comfortable. Read on to discover when and how to best wear shapewear.
Do You Wear Underwear Under Shapewear Shorts, Briefs, and Thongs?
In short, the answer to this question is: no. That’s because you can get complete support and full shaping power without compromise from shaping briefs and thongs.
Let your shapewear breathe by wearing it directly next to your skin rather than above underwear. Our UltraThin - High Waist Shaping Panty and ShapingShorts-High Waist Tummy Control are perfect for dresses and high-waisted skirts in the fall. What other underwear can keep your core snuggled and cozy like these?
Even shorts, like our ShapingShorts-High Waist Tummy Control are designed to be as slim-fitting and comfortable as underwear. Too many layers result in heat getting trapped and no one wants that! Instead, this shapewear is ultra-flattering and provides a subtle bum-lift for that just-finished-a-workout feel.
Pairing Shaping Panty With Shapewear Tank Tops
Of course, you’ll want to wear underwear with your shaping tank top, but we’ve put this here just to say that shapewear comes in many more forms than just shaping bottoms! In terms of wearing a bra with your shapewear, it’s up to you – unless one is already built-in. Tanks like our Women's Slimming Hot-Top are designed with wide straps to conceal your bra straps underneath, so no worries there.
You shouldn’t ever feel exposed in your shapewear; it’s there to provide you peace of mind and a bit more coverage than your average panties, not less. For this reason and to ensure there aren’t any unwanted bulges, you should generally consider the answer to “do you wear underwear under shapewear?” is no. However, there are a few exceptions and of course, we ultimately write our own rules for how to wear shapewear, don’t we ;)?
