Comfort is key when it comes to loving your outfit, at least for me. I want to look and feel my best and sometimes it really comes down to those garments no one else sees. I try on most of my outfits with different bras, panties, and shapewear to make sure I have the flattering look that I desire along with optimal comfort. I rely on shapewear for many reasons. It's a must if I want a little more coverage under sheer fabrics. Shapewear gives me a smooth look and it can hide visible panty and bra lines under my clothes. I also love wearing shapewear in my never-ending quest to prevent chafing.

If you're new to the shapewear game or if you just want to refresh your wardrobe, here are some affordable, top-rated shapewear picks that are shopping editor-approved and customer-loved.

I am a 5'3" and weigh about 230 pounds and I always wanted something to help out my curves. This has helped out my curves and has left my waist snatched. I really do love it."

Maidenform Women's Comfort Devotion Shapewear Cami
