Muffin tops, “Tina The Tummy”, saddlebags, love handles—these are just a few of the terms we use to refer to those unsightly, flabby, jiggly parts of our bodies.
When you feel that way and there's a big party, presentation, parent-teacher conference, wedding or reunion to attend, choosing clothes to wear becomes a burden. In your mind, you're probably thinking, "Who wants to ruin a sexy pencil skirt or figure-hugging gown with flabs?"
While it is true that motherhood could bring about big changes in our bodies, it is not something to be ashamed of.
Thankfully, there are wardrobe godsends that can give a little oomph to your womanly assets. We’re talking about shapewear products that lift, tuck and smooth out in the right places, so you’ll feel confident whatever you’re wearing.
Read on and discover these recommended items!
Spanx Assets Focused Firmers Adjustable Strap Full Slip in Dee Black
Spanx’s Focused Firmers collection delivers unmatched slimming through focused firming zones. Targeting the tummy, hips and love handles while remaining completely invisible under clothes, these styles remain undetectable but offer results you can see.
Tip: “Slip” it under a tight-fitting spaghetti strap dress or gown, and see the puson-control magic at work!
Spanx Spoil Me Cotton Black Tank
Sumptuous cotton, visually slimming seams and a hug of shaping (thanks to double-layer tummy control) make this collection the softest way to slim.
Featuring a V-neck silhouette which flatters the bustline, the Spoil Me Cotton Tank is perfect to layer under sheer tops or a blazer. Its tank style straps also keep your bra straps from playing peek-a-boo.
Tip: Inner wear as outer wear? It’s not as scandalous as it seems! With this basic black and neckline-flattering tank’s satiny feel, you’ll want to pair it with anything! Try it out with jeans or a skirt to see its tummy-flattening effect.
Maidenform’s Comfort Devotion Collection
Designed with plush fabrics and delicate trims that mold to the curves of the body, you’ll be able to pull off that sexy, seamless look with these undergarment essentials.
Maidenform’s Comfort Devotion bras are embellished with delicate Angora lace trims and offer plush cloud foam-lined cups with super soft wire casing. The bras are also complemented by a smooth wing and leotard back for the ultimate fit and feel.
Their shapewear pieces are made with a soft, buttery mesh inside along with a no-sew technology that makes it luxuriously comfortable and virtually invisible under clothes. Panties are elastic free and made with an incredibly soft fused fabric that simply molds to the body and eliminates panty lines.

Tip: Because of its smooth cup, you can wear t-shirts or satiny blouses under the Maidenform Comfort Devotion bra. It also scoops those side-boob flabs, so get those sleeveless tops out! The shapewear panty will work wonders under a tight dress, bodysuit or jeans, since it smoothens out those love handles and tones the tummy.
Spanx Active Compression Pant
Whether you’re hitting the yoga mat, throwing body shots on the punching bag, or maybe covering some distance, make sure you get the most out of your workout with quality workout gear that’s not only comfortable but figure-flattering as well.
SPANX Active is a collection of figure-flattering active wear that comes in sleek-to-the-touch and comfy cotton-soft fabrics that bend, breathe and wick away moisture – making them great for running errands, going on a run or running after the kids.
These Spanx Active Power Pants come complete with a Built-In Bagel Buster™ made of Slim-X® compression fabric to tame the tummy and hips and “ponte knit” legs that fix flaws. Shaping compression styles feature all-over moisture-wicking technology that prevents overheating. A “back seams only” rule on all pants creates an impressive rear view while keeping any and all toes only at your feet.
Tip: For non-workout activities, balance the pant with loose tops. Try wearing them with a comfy, oversized sweater, long-sleeved polo and white sneakers for a preppy look.
Spanx Boostie-Yay! Cami
With the slew of endless parties, cocktails, reunions, and get-togethers coming your way this coming holiday season, the last thing you need is to look less than flattering in what could otherwise be a sexy and fabulous ensemble.
The new Boostie-Yay! Comfortable Corsetry luxe collection offers comfortable spot-control corsetry and a bustier.
The below-the-bust Comfy Corset’s super-duper compression provides targeted tummy taming as well as a structured fit that perfects posture. For comfortable corsetry – minus the pulling and squeezing, try on the Camisole with Built-in-Bra. This retro-inspired, structured style offers super-duper slimming in a chic, new way!
Tip: Get that hour-glass figure and wear your most figure-flattering dress with this. If you’re feeling extra daring, wear the cami under a low-neckline top the next time you’re out with hubby.
