How to choose the best shapewear for your body

We all love to look and feel our best - confident, fashionable and sexy. Whether it’s for a day in the office, a night out with the girls or a special celebration, it’s what’s underneath that counts. The right shapewear can give you the confidence boost you’re after, without having to compromise on comfort or style. The Triumph shapewear range works with your unique shape, amplifying and minimising where you want it most.   

So, which shapewear works best? That depends on your body and your needs. Here’s our useful guide to help you choose the very best shapewear for you. Feel your best every day with our ultra-comfortable shapewear collection.

Best types of shapewear for a look you’ll love

For a smooth tummy

Choose the best shapewear for the tummy to create a sleek look under your clothes. Minimiser briefs are a lingerie wardrobe staple for smooth lines in any outfit, no matter your shape. The Minimiser Tummy Panty features super comfortable microfibre-feel fabric with minimal seams. The shaped inner control panel helps smooth out the tummy and minimise the waist.

For a minimised bust

If a minimised bust would boost your confidence, minimiser bras are the lingerie drawer staple you need. But, gone are the days of uncomfortable or downright daggy options. Triumph’s minimiser bras are timeless in design, with a focus on all-day comfort. The super soft jersey True Shape Sensation bra reduces your bust cup by one size, offering support and sleek lines under your clothes. For a sexier look the embroidered Wild Rose Florale Minimiser bra smoothes out your back while creating sensational cleavage. The specially curved ergoline wire adapts perfectly to your body for extra stability and comfort.

For slim hips, a defined waist and a perky bottom

Minimiser briefs are some of the best shapewear for your hips, waist and bum. The high-waisted design of the Jolly Comfort Panty is a supreme waist-shaper, while the rigidity of the fabric also means a seriously toned bottom. You’ll wear anything from jeans to a party dress with confidence. The Minimiser Hips Panty features a smooth seam-free microfibre-feel fabric for a sleek look under clothes that gently lifts and shapes your bottom.

For toned legs and full-body slimming

Shapewear bodysuits are where it’s at for full-body slimming. The best shapewear for a muffin top or love handles, bodysuits let you wear the most figure-hugging outfit with confidence. The Modern Soft + Cotton Bodysuit contains LYCRA® for a fantastic fit that moves with your body. The natural, moulded cups, tummy control and elastic tapes offer the ultimate in comfortable shaping. Thanks to its delicate and feminine look, your shapewear can look as sexy and beautiful as it feels.

How does shapewear work?

Shapewear uses many construction elements to help achieve the desired outcome.

  • Minimal or seam-free garments offer a smooth, sleek look.
  • Closed gussets lift your butt into a perky position.
  • Inner control panels smooth out your tummy.
  • High-waisted designs and rigid fabrics smooth out lines and offer support.
