Where to Shop for the Best Shapewear in Australia
Ah, shapewear. Sometimes I wonder what life was like before you came into our lives. We’ve all been there; the time has come to finally have a night out with your besties but things just ain’t where they used to be! Thank god for Sara Blakely having been crowned the fairy godmother of the modern-day shapewear movement when she first invented Spanx in the late ’90s.
From underwear to tights, body suits, camis and more, shapewear in Australia has come a long way since the '90s and there are loads of shapewear brands to choose from the next time you want to camouflage a few of your bumpy bits.
Six of the Best Shapewear Brands in Australia
1. B Free Australia
If you need to fit into that figure-hugging dress for an upcoming event, B Free Australia have developed the largest shapewear range in Australia that offers not one but three levels of control. Their firm and stretchy foundation garments have been developed using modern seamless technology to smooth and slim your body - magic!
When shopping the B Free Australia shapewear range, you can choose from three levels of control to create a smooth silhouette:
- Maximum control comes with an extra firm, double layer knitted tummy panel to take inches off your waist.
- Medium control provides firm shaping and support with a single layer fabric.
- Light control gives you the ideal everyday smoothing layer with super thin yarns that combine powerful control with lightweight comfort.
2. Nancy Ganz
Australian made Nancy Ganz is a modern-day version of the traditional girdle. As one of the first shapewear brands to come on the market all the way back in the '90s, it's safe to say that Nancy Ganz have certainly earned their reputation as the number one shapewear brand in Australia.
