When you just can’t go without full-on shapewear, Wacoal’s COOL Definition Shaper is the one for summer. It lowers your skin temp with cooling yarns made of recycled coffee grounds—sounds nuts, I know, but it promises to keep you cool while controlling odor! This slims everything from your tummy to your thigh and won’t have you peeling off your shaper before lunch.
A Soft Bra Camisole from Bradelis combines a soft bra with a camisole in pretty colors. (Let the straps show!) The stretch tulle is slimming and very breathable—plus the bra is lined in cotton to absorb any under-breast sweating. (Sorry, we all know this happens in the summer!)
A shaping slip can be very hot under summer dresses, but this Weightless Comfort Slip from Flexees is very lightweight. Buy it in nude to wear under everything from sheer daytime to formal dresses.
Chafing in the thighs sucks, and Bandaids are not the answer. Try a smooth shaper that covers the upper thighs but is still short enough to go under a mini, like this Slimplicity Boy Short from Spanx.
Lightweight and luxe? Yes-it does exist. Wolford’s Individual Nature bodysuit is silky smooth for just a touch of shaping where you need it. This second skin is light enough to wear under everything.
