The Thong Shapewear People Actually Love to Wear

When it comes to perfecting your undergarment collection, there are a few no-fail pieces you should certainly add to the mix. A comfy bra—you know, a good one that you aren't going to take off the second you get home from work—is a must. A no-slip bandeau bra that pairs well with your strapless tops is another essential. And of course, we can't forget to hone in on your shapewear supply. While it's not something you're going to be wearing every day, certain occasions or clothing items (looking at you, form-fitting bodycon dress) definitely call for the shaping essentials that promise to give you a little bit of extra help when you need it.

Today's focus leads us to the vast world that is thong shapewear, specifically. As the name suggests, it's much like any other compression piece, in that it lifts, shapes, tucks, and smooths without giving you those pesky panty lines. And because we're all for finding those staples that people actually like wearing (believe it or not, not everyone can stand the constrictive nature of shapewear), we scoured the reviews for those standout finds that people loved. Keep reading to see and shop the best thong shapewear on the market.


"LOVE THESE! Makes me feel more confident for sure! I had shapewear before that would give you weird panty lines, but the thong back is perfect." — LLAMB326

"These are some of my FAVORITE thongs! I bought them about six months postpartum because I was still having trouble with the underbelly button area (sad face). I feel like the extra support is awesome as I'm still healing and it makes me feel more confident. The thong is nice because the regular underwear kinda cuts into your bottom and is a little obvious under form-fitting dresses." — Meaghan McDowell

"I love it and is exactly what I expected. It smooths everything out so I look better in my clothes. I'm going on vacation to Mexico and of course, I want to look my best, and my clothes look really nice." — Kindle Customer

"Perfect for a little tug. They fit nice, and my lines are not that noticeable. These are my second and third; you just never have enough especially for those tight summers dresses."  — MomlovesBebe

"Okay this is probably the most comfortable shapewear I’ve ever worn, and I’ve tried many different ones. It’s very soft and stretchy! And the bones are great with preventing it from rolling down. It sucks you in without suffocating you. Not easily visible underneath clothing (I wear a pretty snug T-shirt for work). I love it. And the thong design in the back is great because it doesn't flatten your butt. Highly recommend." — Lizzy

"This is great, keeps the fat in all the right places. I haven't worn it for a long period of time yet, but I can gauge that it will not slide down during the day." — Jannamc

"Fits great and still supports where needed. Well made. I expect to get a long wear time with these." — Tommy F.


"It DOES NOT roll down! Yay! I was looking for medium support to hold me in smoothly while wearing summer dresses. Bodysuits are a pain when it comes to all-day wear and using the toilet. High waisted panties roll down and show through fitted dresses. This is perfect and performs beautifully." — Calioc

"I just ordered two more of these thongs. They work very nicely under the new higher waist pants/jeans and all dresses. I love this thong! It makes my tummy flat." — Laurie

"These do not budge! It stays put all day/night. Wore these under a dress and under pants. Did not roll up on the sides, which most thong-style Spanx do. I would definitely recommend. Pretty accurate with sizing. Great price!" — AnaliseM

"This is the first shapewear I bought and it was for a wedding! You could not see it under my dress, and it sucked my middle section in without being uncomfortable! The fabric is great and I got compliments all night I highly recommend! Thanks, Yummie!" — Kristen C

"I must say I'm impressed! I read the reviews and decided to try these. Well, I'm highly impressed that they in fact DO NOT roll down and stay up perfectly!! I love the breathable material as well. It smooths everything but doesn't suck it all in. Wore all day and is very comfortable! I'm glad I decided to purchase and bought two! Will be ordering more!!" — KR

"This is my first shapewear purchase and it is the best! It’s comfortable… I was able to dance the night away without it rolling down! Love that it was a thong and didn’t have panty line issues!" — IcePrincess08


"Feels like a second skin. Nordstrom had a hard time keeping sizes in stock. Wish they'd come up with different neck cuts, this scoop isn't super flattering in my opinion. The best part: no weird lines!" — Ltle90

"The material is soft and it smooths and holds you in without feeling constricting. The sides don’t come up too high so it works great with all pant rises. Great for layering too. This bodysuit will be a staple in my wardrobe!" — Catherine M

"I've tried a lot of different shapewear items, but this is by far the best I ever had. Comfortable for all-day wear. I already ordered another one and am about to order a third…" — Amazon Customer

"Comfortable, flattering, and does its job." — EMariaG

"I have NEVER been able to get a bodysuit that I like or find flattering on myself. This one shapes my body exactly how I'd want and it's easy to take on and off (I hate the bodysuits you need to climb into like a one-piece). Overall—THRILLED with this." — Bridie R
