Alright, I'll be the first to admit that my shapewear collection is a bit old and tattered—and out of the best tummy control tank tops on the market, it took me a while to finally make a purchase. I haven't bought a new pair of Spanx in years. Really, it's been years. I still reach for the ones I bought for my senior prom in high school, and that was a good seven years ago—yep, don't shame. And I'm still in the midst of building a solid collection of shaping bodysuits, underwear, and tank tops for those occasions when I need a bit of extra support (looking at you, formfitting bodycon dresses). 

I was finally compelled to purchase a particular tummy-control tank top when I came across it during Amazon Prime Day, and this one wasn't even part of the deal. I was just utterly intrigued by the reviews and the nearly 425 positive comments praising the tank's capabilities. "This is the most amazing lingerie product I've ever purchased," wrote one customer. "Life-changing!!!" shouted another (as expressed by the three exclamation marks used). You can see why I was tempted.

The tummy-control tank in question was Bali's Lace 'N Smooth Cami, and let's just say my life did, in fact, change. The top isn't like your usual shapewear pieces in that it's actually super pretty, thanks to the all-over lace design that's quite romantic. Let's just say I actually feel good wearing it. It also has softly lined cups for added support, which means I don't have to wear a bra. I also noticed that the length seemed a bit longer than most, so it smoothed out my stomach and hip area and made for super easy tucking, which is great, whether I'm wearing it with my favorite summer jumpsuit or a tee-and-jeans combo.

I am now officially a tummy-control tank devotee, and I'm never turning back. Ahead, see the cami that seriously changed my life and 14 more of the best tummy-control tank tops with amazing reviews, plus, some more of my favorite shapewear picks.

What to Look for in the Best Tummy-Control Tank Tops

Finding the best tummy-control tank tops was no easy feat, but we think we’ve found the best of the best in our top picks, below. When looking for a tummy-control tank top, there are a few things we kept in mind:

Fit: Since tummy-control tank tops typically have some sort of compression aspect, pay special attention to the word "panel” when making your purchase.

Size: Sizing for the best tummy-control tank tops is honestly all over the place, so we suggest relying heavily on real customer reviews. Some run normally, while others you should size up or size down. It truly depends on the specific tank in question!

Material: Common materials used in the best tummy-control tank tops include nylon and spandex. If a tank has one of these materials, you’re probably in good hands. For your convenience, we’ve included the materials in all of our favorite picks, below!
