The Under Layer Debate: To Wear or Not to Wear Undies with Shapewear

The ongoing debate about the appropriate undergarments to wear with shapewear continues – is it appropriate to wear underwear beneath, or is omitting them a well-known fashion faux pas? If you've ever found yourself in front of the mirror, contemplating whether to combine shapewear with underwear, this blog post is designed for you. We aim to provide detailed guidance to assist you in determining whether your shapewear bodysuit ensemble should include undergarments or allow your figure to be showcased more prominently.


The Delicate Balance of Comfort and Functionality

Shapewear is all about sculpting and contouring your body to enhance your natural silhouette, giving you that smooth base for your clothes. But what about traditional undergarments? You might think it's just about layering up, but it's really about finding that sweet spot between feeling comfy and practical.

Going Commando for the Smoothest Look

Choosing not to wear underwear with your shapewear can give you those super smooth lines under your clothes. This usually means no visible panty lines (VPL) messing up the sleek look you're going for. Plus, a lot of today's shapewear comes with a cotton gusset, so you can skip regular underwear and still be comfy and hygienic.

When Two Layers Are Better Than One

On the flip side, popping some undies on under your shapewear has its perks too! For starters, it helps your shapewear last longer by guarding it against oils and sweat that can wear out elastic and spandex over time. Plus, if you're planning to rock your shapewear all day, having that extra layer can be a lifesaver for menstrual protection, personal comfort, or just sticking to your style vibe.

Considerations for Different Types of Shapewear

The decision on underwear with shapewear isn't one-size-fits-all; it largely depends on the type of shapewear you're wearing and the occasion for which you're dressing.

High-Waisted Shapers and Bodysuits

High-waisted shapers, especially those that cover your torso, are pretty comfy without undies. They usually have a built-in gusset that gives you all the coverage and support you need. Bodysuits are great too! They bring the shaping benefits and the ease of slipping into a one-piece. Plus, they're perfect for anyone who prefers going underwear-free since many have a thong or built-in coverage. Take the PowerConceal™ 2.0 V-Neck Thong Bodysuit, for instance—it shapes and smooths your waist, core, tummy, and back beautifully. And with its cotton gusset and snap closure, you’re all set for comfort and convenience.

Shaping Shorts and Shapewear Dress

Shorts and shapewear dress are a great mid-thigh option for anyone looking to smooth and lift their lower body. 

Take, for instance, the Ruched Deep Plunge Midi Shaping Dress - it's all about enhancing your natural curves! This midi dress not only offers a flattering shaping effect but also features a deep plunge neckline that's totally eye-catching. With its comfy mesh shaping lining and soft modal outer layer, you'll feel great wearing it all day. Plus, the invisible zipper and chic ruched detailing add that perfect elegant finish.

In the End, It's Up to You

Deciding on underwear with shapewear is totally up to you. It's all about mixing fashion with function to boost your comfort and confidence. Everyone's choice is going to be different. So next time you're getting ready and can't decide, why not mix things up and go with your gut? Whether you're rocking a strappy dress that screams for no undies, or cozying up in your go-to full-body shaper, make sure the layers under your shapewear are as unique and thoughtful as your outfit. And hey, fashion's all about tweaking things to your taste, so don't be shy to change up your base layer as you please. Because let's be honest, what's underneath matters a lot, doesn't it?
