How to do, Style

Many of us have trouble knowing what pieces of lingerie to wear under our clothes. With a wardrobe full of different outfits, from workwear to jeans, and backless or tight-fitting dresses, it’s not one garment fits all.

Enter the Triumph shapewear range. Thank goodness! We’ll help you navigate these difficult choices with our quick guide. Learn how to choose the best shapewear and undergarments for any outfit, and discover a whole new level of confidence.

Best shapewear for dresses and skirts

The best undergarments for dresses and skirts are hidden from sight, minimise areas of concern and maximise your best assets. Here are our best shapewear tips to feel fantastic in any outfit.  

  • Best shapewear for short dresses and skirts

Full coverage helps you feel secure in a short dress or skirt, especially on a windy day. Help prevent wardrobe malfunctions with a pair of shaping briefs in a boy short style. The Something Else Tum-E-Lace Panty is a top-selling shapewear piece with a reinforced front panel for bonus tummy control. Its high-waisted fit provides full coverage, in a stretchy, breathable fabric, comfortable enough to wear all day. The stretchy fabric won’t slip or bunch through the day, and you’ll get a seamless look under your favourite outfit.

  • Best shapewear for backless dresses

Finding the perfect underwear for a slinky backless dress isn’t impossible. In your search, you have a couple of choices; match your skin tone for an invisible look or match your dress, to add a little something to your outfit. The Dream Spotlight Bodysuit falls into the latter category, far too stunning to hide completely. This gorgeous lace bodysuit hugs your body perfectly with a dramatic deep-v plunge at the back. Make a statement on the dancefloor!

  • Best shapewear for strapless dresses

Along with a strapless bra, make sure you choose the right size underwear for a smooth and comfortable look. TheShape Sensation Minimiser Brief features comfy circular knit fabric with minimal seams. The shaped inner control panel helps smooth out the tummy, offering the ultimate in comfort and coverage.

  • Best shapewear for plunging necklines

When choosing the best underwear for special occasion dresses or tops, make sure you give yourself time. Finding the right lingerie often means trying on several items with your outfit to see the overall look. The design of the Sheer Minimiser is ideal for plunging necklines. A feminine and elegant minimiser bra, it supports up to an F cup with a lightweight yet ultra-supportive construction.

  • Best shapewear for tight dresses or skirts

Shapewear bodysuits are where it’s at for tight dresses or skirts. No bunching, rolling or panty lines to worry about, just curves enhanced in all the right places! Triumph’s True Shape Sensation Bodysuit is invisible under tight clothing. Made with LYCRA®, for freedom of movement, with gathering in the bottom area to support your shape, it could become your new go-to.

Prefer a minimiser bra? The True Shape Sensation Bra provides the highest wearing comfort and ultimate support under a tight outfit.

  • Best shapewear for jeans

A pair of high-waisted seamless underwear will help your jeans fit you fabulously. With a reinforced front panel and rigid stretch fabric, the Belform Panty firmly holds the bottom and tummy for a smooth silhouette. Its high-rise cut and soft stretch waistband offer all-day comfort.
