When you are deciding on body shapewear to make your hips, thighs, and bottom look smooth, tight and slim – it can be confusing to know which body shaper will be the right one to make your rear look fantastic. Are you looking for medium support that you can wear everyday or are you looking for the firmest shapewear you can get? With all of the shapewear choices and even the number of choices even in one brand like Spanx – it can be overwhelming to choose your slimming underwear!

Here in order of control are the Spanx slimming undergarments for you to consider:

For Medium Control Medium control means it smoothes the lumps and bumps but is comfortable and forgiving so if you eat a big lunch, you aren’t going to feel too restricted. This is the entry level Spanx control undergarment.
SPANX Skinny Britches Hipster Panty – these come in lots of cute colors
SPANX Undie-tectable Panty

For Super Control (in between medium and maximum control) Super control means it flattens your tummy and shapes your body – giving contours to the curves. These can be worn everyday or will offer great slimming for special occasions.

Spanx Slimplicity Girl Short – just as it sounds- it is like a boy short but tames the tummy and sits high on the thigh
Slimplicity Panty – just like the Spanx girl short but just focuses on the tummy and looks like a normal brief panty
SPANX Higher Power Brief – this is a high-waisted tummy smoothing option combined with a comfortable soft brief style panty.

For Maximum Control
Maximum or super-duper control is for when you want to transform your body, look like you have lost inches and pounds. These target specific concerns using compression technology in problem areas. They might feel more restrictive, but with the inches lost – it’s worth it and they are still made with soft, comfy fabrics so you aren’t in a Victorian corset to get the shape you want.

SPANX Slim Cognito Shaping Bodysuit Shapewear– it doesn’t sound like briefs but it is a firm control high-waisted brief that comes with tiny straps that you can attach to your bra to stay up and really keep things firm and under control.
Spanx Slim Cognito control Panty –this ultra firm control brief even boosts your rear because it has little lifting pockets in the back. It ‘s like an instant tummy tuck with the added bonus of a little Brazilian butt lift.

So to recap – for lighter control, Skinny Britches, Undie-tectable.
Firm Control go with Slimplicity and Higher Power
Ultra Firm Control – go with the Slim Cognito ultra slimming underwear.

Now that we have addressed the briefs and underpants levels of shaping, let’s get to the other firming bottoms undergarments – thigh slimmers. Thigh slimmer’s offer tummy control, shape and define your bottom, slim your hips and thin your thighs. So, which are the best thigh slimmers?
