Best Spanx for Women TechnoBuffalo 2020

Spanx has become such an influence that the brand name is synonymous with the word "shapewear." Nary a red carpet affair is attended without a pair of Spanx underneath every dress. Spanx products go far beyond control-top underwear, however. See the list below for a full line of body-smoothing clothing, from undergarments to sportswear.

Classic shapewear: SPANX Extra Firm Control High Waist Shaper

Staff Pick

This is the classic Spanx undergarment. The tight spandex material hugs the body from the top of the ribcage to the mid-thigh, smoothing, and shaping as it goes. Say goodbye to lumps and rolls when you're wearing this number!

From $45 at Amazon

Fab faux leather: SPANX Faux Leather Leggings

Spanx don't just go underneath your clothes! These fab leggings look like leather, but the shiny nylon and spandex material actually provides the perfect subtle control for your lower tummy and upper thighs.

From $92 at Amazon

Best under-dress support: SPANX Strapless Cupped Mid-Thigh Bodysuit

You can't hit the red carpet without one of these. The strapless bodysuit is the complete undergarment to go under a tight strapless dress. It provides push-up support for the bust and body-shaping coverage for the tummy, butt, and thighs.

Best shaping sportswear: SPANX Women's Active Compression Cropped Leggings

Most gym wear is not exactly flattering. Too-tight tops and thin leggings can create unsightly lumps and bumps. Instead, opt for Spanx compression activewear that gives you full support, making you feel more confident during exercise.

From $80 at Amazon

Powerful panty: SPANX Higher Power Panties

Spanx Higher Power Panties are a great shapewear solution to pair underneath shorts, short dresses, and skirts. They provide excellent tummy support and smooth out your back and upper hips, without showing on the legs and thighs.

Best control tights: Spanx High-Waisted Body-Shaping Tights

The tights to end all tights, Spanx high-waisted body-shaping tights give your legs the sheen and coverage they need along with the smoothing, contouring effects of Spanx. They reach up to the ribcage to provide shaping support throughout the tummy and back.

Best for booty: SPANX Butt Lifter Body Shaper Shorts

For those who want a little extra lift through the backside, Spanx Butt-Lifter Shaper Shorts will create just the right contour to fill out a dress or jeans.

From $69 at Amazon

Smoothest bust support: SPANX Bra-Llelujah Bralette

Many wired and cupped bras bring a lot of wires and padding, but little comfort. Spanx's Bra-Llelujah Bralette has no underwire or extra padding - only smooth support and comfortable, seamless lift.

Bottom line

From top to bottom, the Spanx line of shape-enhancing undergarments and clothing will have you looking and feeling your best on any occasion. Our favorite is the classic High Waist Shaper since it provides a lot of shaping and contouring from the legs through the tummy. It will go well under most types of clothing.

If a formal gown is in your near future, then the Strapless Cupped Bodysuit will be your perfect companion, with one-piece support from the bust on down. And if you like to wear your Spanx on the outside, check out Spanx leggings, such as this fab faux leather pair. It's not just underwear! Spanx comes in all shapes and sizes.
