"We call these Singlets or Mid-Thigh Body Suits. These are great for providing a full-body shaping solution and are a great option for those who don't prefer a slip and like the leg and movement of a short. Also, many of these come as a wear-your-own-bra option, making it a versatile piece for a more plunging neckline. Wear these with any dress!"

"Try a high waist brief with any A-line or fit-and-flare party dress. The high-waist option smooths you from the bra band down, and you don't have to worry about a panty line if your skirt is fuller."

"Shaping shorts are extremely versatile because they hold your midsection in place, from waist to mid thighs. They work under flowy dresses, pants, and even jeans."

"Bodysuits are a perfect solution for when you want your underpinning to stay in place. For example, I wear them with fitted button-down shirts and pencil skirts or tailored pants to smooth and streamline the silhouette."
