9. Problem Area: Legs
When you’re not happy with anything that’s going on south of your hips, it’s time to invest in some leggings that will work overtime, like this classic black pair of Sassybax: Bottom Lifting Control Top Leggings ($68, barenecessities.com). Leggings are a wardrobe staple, and this pair is opaque enough to wear as pants or underneath your favorite dress or skirt. They’ll keep everything in control from your butt down, so you can rest easy.
10. Problem Area: All Over
And for those who would rather slim and tone everything in one fell swoop, there’s all-in-one shapewear like the Miraclesuit: Extra-Firm Control Strapless Body Briefer ($56, barenecessities.com). “It may conjure up memories of Grandma’s girdle,” says Jené, “but it’s a lot less scary (and a lot more stretchy).” By slipping on this on, your tummy, hips and midriff will look trimmer and your bust will be lifted and supported. So bring on the designer gown – you’re red-carpet worthy!
