We tried some of the best-selling women’s shapewear on Amazon! Not only are all the pieces totally affordable, but we’re sharing if these tummy control, butt lifting, and shorts with an actual butt work… or if they fell flat.
1. Emily’s body shaping women’s shapewear shorts
If you’re looking to slim up in one of your favorite dresses, these shorts will be the perfect addition to enhance the curves you already have! These breathable shorts are not just comfortable to wear, but they slim your mid-thighs, tighten your butt, and reduce your waistline while sucking in your abdomen. What’s not to want?!
Emily already looked fabulous in her Amazon dress before she tried on her Amazon Nebility Waist Trainer & Body Shaper Shapewear Shorts, but you can really see how they gave her a little boost in her dress! She feels even more confident and ready to hit the town.
Here’s what Emily has to say about her shapewear:
“I used to wear a similar pair of Spanx (I wear shapewear anytime I’m going to an event), but I’m blown away by this slimming bodysuit from Amazon and have been using it for over a year now! It was a little intimidating at first with the boning, compressed fabric, and the butt sections in the back, 😂 but it WORKS amazing!
It might feel like it runs small, but it’s meant to be in order to really compress everything in so just trust me on that. The leg opening starts to feel snug, even when pulling up around the calves, but it stretches like crazy and is really comfortable once it’s in place. I’m very prone to bloating but even when I tried to push my stomach out to how it normally looks when I don’t focus on my posture, there was no movement at all—secure and tight!”

2. Jill’s tummy control women’s lace panties
These shapewear panties are a great way to still look sexy while giving you the boost you’re looking for. The lace detail around the legs is something you’d find at an expensive lingerie store, like Victoria’s Secret, but for half the price! Plus, they help control your tummy and lift your butt.
Jill is looking flawless, literally! I was loving her in this dress before, but you can really see the difference that these Amazon panties made in her abdomen and backside. These panties slimmed her up in all the areas she was hoping for and, best of all, you can’t even tell she is wearing them! Win, win!
Here’s what Jill has to say about her shapewear:
“This shapewear is so comfortable to wear, and I really love the added lace feature on the bottom of the panties. I like the boy shorts fit and felt so comfortable in my dress! These are so versatile, too, and would work even better under a pair of jeans or skirt. It totally flattened and smoothed all my lumps and bumps, which is exactly what I was hoping for. I’m already looking forward to wearing them out for our next date night, paired with my favorite dress!”
3. Erica’s mom’s corset body shapewear
This waist trainer does so much more than just suck in your stomach! It’s a great piece that provides excellent back support, helps with post-partum recovery, and even helps push up breasts for an improved hourglass shape.
This shapewear is an easy, concealed way to improve multiple areas of your body while doing nothing at all, so you can go about your errands or even wear it while working out since it’s moisture-wicking!
Hip Tip: Speaking of working out, you need these flattering Lululemon knockoffs in your life!
Erica actually gifted this waist trainer to her mom who has had twins and struggled to get her abdomen back to where she wanted it. You can see in her before and after that this Amazon corset vest totally improved her posture, slimmed her waist, and lifted her chest.
Here’s what Erica’s mom has to say about her shapewear:
“I was so excited to try this on! In my younger years, I was always thinner and bounced back to my normal shape with my first two babies. And then… I decided to have one more! However, this didn’t happen. I got pregnant, but I ended up pregnant with twin boys – two full-term over 7-pound babies at that! Boy, did they change my body! They stretched me out so far, my skin just stayed wrinkly after I lost the weight, and it has never gone away all these years. It’s just something I have had to deal with and accept.
With that being said, I was really excited to get this shapewear product in the mail. I am in LOVE! It fits nice and snug, but it’s comfortable and does the job. As you can see, it really pulls me together and gives me that hourglass shape! Wow! What a difference this thing makes! And, it fits nicely under shirts, dresses, etc!“
4. Sara’s butt enhancer shapewear shorts
- Amazon Seamless Butt Lifter Panty Enhancer Underwear | $13.99-$14.99
Whether you have some improvement to do on your bum (or you’re like me and have no bum), these shorts are NOT what you need in your life! 😬 That’s right, sorry friends, but I’m not a fan of these and would rather embrace what I already have (or don’t have for that matter, lol!)
You don’t have to look too closely to see that this butt enhancer is extremely noticeable. HAHA! Sometimes you just need a good laugh, and this definitely gave me one. If you take a look at my right thigh you can even see how it’s squeezing my skin when I move.
I even tried it with my favorite white dress thinking maybe something lighter would help mask the lines, but it just doesn’t at all. My recommendation…if you’re still looking to buy a pair of these, only wear them with loose clothing…or just take my advice and don’t do it at all! 😂
