We love shapewear, but if we had to just choose only one piece of body shaping wear, it would be without a doubt our shaping shorts.
It has to be the ultimate piece of shapewear due to its versatility, comfort and soothing powers.
Also, you can literally wear them with just about everything you have in your wardrobe, except for maybe, those short shorts and your bandeau top.
Shapewear, in the past, had a horrid reputation and for a due reason, it was stiff, bulky, uncomfortable and we might even dare say “torturous.”
Thankfully, shapewear today is made from innovative fabrics that smooth away all of our concerns but without making us feel like we are being stuffed into a sausage casing.
We all know how a good pair of hair-waisted shorts can empower us, as it hugs to our curves, smooths out any lumps and bumps.
Plus, our clothes fit perfectly and seem to accentuate all of our best assets.
But I don’t know if you have noticed this point, but our favourite type of shapewear has suddenly grown into a family.
There are so many different types of shorts for women from butt-lifting shorts to thigh shapers.
If you go online and search where to buy women’s shorts, you will be surprised to see a long list of different types and styles.
Each one is suited for different occasions and circumstances.
So, here is a quick overview of some of the various types of shaping panties or shorts that you might want to add to your shapewear collection.
High Waisted Shaper Shorts
The high waisted shorts are essential for every girl’s lingerie drawer, as they create a smooth, streamlined silhouette from your midsection to your thighs.
They are ideal for wearing under pencil skirts, dresses or trousers.
They are designed to flatten your tummy and erase that muffin top that loves to pop out and haunt you.
Some styles come with bra clips to help keep them in place.

The girl short is every girl’s go-to panty when she is in her teens because it is both playful and seductive at the same time.
But a more sophisticated version of your nostalgic panty is the high waisted shaper boyshorts.
Since it hits mid-thigh you don’t have to worry about chafing as you walk, plus it will magically maximize your butt, making it look rounder and more youthful.
Butt Lifting Shorts

These shorts don’t only make your booty look perky and rounder, but they also create a perfectly smooth silhouette throughout your midsection and thighs.
Butt-lifter shorts are the ideal type of shapewear to wear under body-hugging dresses, skirts or pants.

Once you slip into a pair of these, you will instantly see the benefits. Trust me, these will be your favourite style of shapewear this summer.

Many styles of semi high-waisted shaping shorts have a reinforced construction that provides compression to naturally enhance the natural shape of your butt and thighs while flattening your belly.
We love shapewear, but one of the drawbacks is that most styles can’t be worn 24/7, but there is one exception – seamless shorts!
Seamless designs might not have the strongest compression, but it feels whisper-soft against your skin.
Yet, still providing enough support to smooth out your imperfections, giving that perfect fit that you have come to love from the rest of your shapewear.
