Jessica Alba, Oprah, And Gwyneth Paltrow Make Shapewear Cool

Shapewear used to mean girdle for grandma, but according to WWD, after four decades of flat sales, the shapewear industry is becoming cool, thanks to celebrities like Jessica Alba, Oprah Winfrey, and Gwyneth Paltrow extolling the power of Spanx. Lady Gaga, Rihanna, and Beyonce‘s lingerie-inspired costume looks also energized the industry. While we don’t expect you to wear a leotard to work, there are some shapewear options that can second as lingerie or actual apparel. Here are four pieces that you won’t hide in the bottom of your drawer:

You can wear these Sassybax: Bottom Lifting Control Top Leggings ($68) under a pair of slacks or by themselves. These leggings have knit-in support that  separates and lifts the bottom while making your thighs look slimmer.

A camisole like this Yummie Tummie Lace Camisole ($86) is a great layering piece for spring. You won’t want to hide the lace on the bodice or the hem of the cami.

For a camisole that you can wear under a cardigan or blazer, this SPANX: Slimplicity Scoop Neck Camisole ($44) is a great option.

This Body Wrap: Moderate Control Underwire Shapewear Slip ($98) doesn’t look like your typical slip. The geometric seaming and sheer panels make the slip (that comes with straps) look like sexy lingerie.

Check out Spanx newest line of swimwear, and then see our guide to the best shapewear, body shapewear, sexy shapewear to show off, the best bras, and the best underwear.
