It was time to take a look at the market for shapewear and what I discovered was that it’s so much more than Spanx. In reality, women have been wearing shapewear garments for centuries, and since Spanx has paved the way for body shaping brands to double as trendy items and the ultimate fashion accessory, here are three other brands that will help you look fabulous in clothes you never thought you could flaunt. There’s no shame in shaping here.

The Marilyn Slip (seen right) marks shapewear as more than some garment women wear to hide their muffin top. Better put, this slip is a styling tool used by celebrities with “perfect” bodies. They may be in great shape, but even they need help to make sure they look their best in the beautiful gowns and cocktail dresses that make up evening wear. As the ultimate celebrity styling tool, it can work for you too, whether you need to control your curves or give them a little boost.
House of Layla
For all the new mommies out there who are feeling blessed with a new little one, but not so much about the newfound 10 pounds in the abdomen region, House of Layla can help give love and support to your new baby in style. In what seems like a perfect world, this piece will do more than just compress your body fat into your skinny jeans. The Neuro Bands are placed to promote natural, neuro-muscular responses and are designed to make your muscles work for a perfect posture while the fibers in the fabric produce just enough heat to invigorate your body to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
At the heart of this brand is the need to get rid of the muffin top. Just in time for fall, Lysse Leggings has come out with some on-trend leggings that feature pops of pleather and fit in perfectly with the equestrian look that has found a way into our wardrobes. Since leggings themselves have been welcomed as thee comfy go-to style, Lysse Leggings happily solves the issue of the ill-fitting style that often comes with this semi-new staple.
