I resisted it for so long, but I’ve come to realise that shapewear can be an absolute gamechanger.
As we all know by now, Marks & Spencer is top of their game when it comes to underwear. Whether you’re looking for sexy lingerie or more practical shapewear solutions, it’s the first place you should go.
I’m not just saying that. You might think Skims has it all, but M&S’ budget-friendly options are way more accessible in terms of price point. In fact, every item we’ve found here is less than £30!
Despite the widespread use of shapewear—with an anticipated market size of $3.7 billion by 2028—it remains a controversial topic. Many people question the concept’s problematic nature. However, at Wear Next, we firmly believe that it’s all about personal choice.
We celebrate all beauty just as it is, without any need for shaping or minimising – but we also understand the desire to feel one’s best, however you choose to do that.
As someone who wears shapewear regularly, I can’t not share my top tips, can I?! I like clothes and underwear that holds me in, which is why I love jeans.
Not everyone feels that way, but if you do, investing in shapewear could be a good idea.
Today’s selection ranges from cami tops and thongs to bodysuits, skirts, and slip dresses – all designed to boost confidence and follow the natural contours of your body.
Given M&S’ reputation for comfortable and high-quality underwear, including their popular no VPL knickers and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s lingerie, I naturally gravitate towards their shapewear.
There’s a variety of control options, ranging from light to medium and firm, allowing you to select the level of support that’s right for you.
The collection boasts high-rise styles that are designed to cinch in your midsection, creating a streamlined and smooth silhouette. The use of breathable cotton-rich materials ensures superior comfort, while added stretch allows for ease of movement.
Here are our top picks.
