Now autumn is approaching, we're starting to think once again about layering. Deciding which winter coat and sleek boots to go for is all about being organised – the best new season buys always sell out, fast.
Around this time of year some sales are still on-going and promotions are coming in thick and fast. This is why, now is a great time to think about your entire wardrobe – starting with your lingerie drawer and the very best shapewear.
We're all for investing in great lingerie separates in soft silky fabrics and luxe lace, but it's shapewear that's gaining our attention right now. We've hunted down the styles that are gaining five stars reviews, and the ones that actually work to make you feel more confident in your everyday outfits. And they all have one thing in common – they're actually affordable.
Continue to see our edit of the best shapewear according to reviews that will make you feel as incredible as you will undoubtably look – see this is as your capsule edit at low price points.
Pour Moi? briefs
The ultimate high waist style is here, and it’s only £20. The best part is these have an incredible amount of stretch, can be found in sizes 10-20 and they’re such a bargain seeing as they’ve been given a five star rating by Figleaves’ customers. More good news? You can also get them in black.
Sometimes you want to be able to have all the benefits of a body, but prefer to wear your own comfy bra, right? Well, this strap slip sits underneath your bra and allows you to do just that. With 360 degree shaping, it's recommended to go a size up with this one for a flattering fit.
Marks and Spencer body
M&S has had an amazing 30% off selected shapewear for a few months now and the offer still stands. Stock up on favourites like this full body you can wear under any outfit for extra support. The gorgeous lace style is available in cup sizes A-E and back sizes 32-42 – we love how you can also remove the straps or turn them into a halter neck style.
H&M are always a go to when it comes to affordable lingerie which will actually go the distance. If you sometimes have chaffing under dresses or you like the smoothing effect of shorts under trousers then these are a must-have. The high waist holds in the tummy area, the clever push-up design lifts the bottom and the shaping fabric smooths the thighs. All for £12.99 – yes, really!
Boux Avenue thong
Yes, you can wear a full high waist style brief without having to have a VPL! Get rid of the panty line in tighter clothes by opting for a thong style – the same support, minus the visibility. This pair is from Boux Avenue's new autumn/winter affordable shapewear collection launching just in time for party season.
We believe shaping can shape your outfits, leading to feeling more comfortable, confident and secure from underneath your everyday looks. Most women have a capsule wardrobe for their outfits, this is is your capsule for shapewear: the high waist brief, the body, the slip, the shorts and the high waist thong.
