Tummy control is your biggest obstacle here. Luckily, high-waisted control-top panties guarantee a smooth line all the way up your torso (as in, all the way to your bra line). Tuck your shirt in and no one will be the wiser.
Visible panty lines plus side spillage? Ack. Solve both problems in one fell swoop with a shaping thong.
They say wrap dresses are flattering on nearly all body types, but it’s not always easy to feel slim in slinky fabric that clings to panty lines. To the rescue: an all-in-one micro-thin full-body slip. It will tighten the areas you want (tummy and thighs) but won't flatten the ones you don’t (errr, your girls).

Control-top shorts that slim your upper thighs and rear are the way to go. But be careful about length. Pro tip: Try them on in-store with your dress to ensure that they won’t peek through when you sit down.
A super-slim fit reveals everything. But that doesn't mean you can't rock it in confidence. The easiest way to feel put together (without creating additional fabric friction) is with good old control-top tights.
VBL (visible bra lines) are a real thing. For tight-fitting tops, find a bra that won't add unnecessary bulges. This one from Yasmin Joseph smooths unsightly lines without looking like it's working too hard.

With some cleverly placed shapewear, that’s how (and then maybe by banning said terms from our vocabulary). Read on for the best shapewear, no matter what type of issue you’re trying to glaze over.
