SLIPS ✭✭✭✭ MAGIC SHAPEWEAR WAIST & THIGH (503324806) ABOUT R350; WOOL­WORTHS

Our testers loved this slip: it of­fered firm com­pres­sion un­der dresses and cre­ated a great sil­hou­ette and slim­mer out­line. There’s no bulging (no muf­fin top) and it lifts the butt. The slip is com­fort­able to wear for long pe­ri­ods and not too dif­fi­cult to get on and off. The sil­i­con strip pre­vents the waist­band from creep­ing down.

Verdict: Ef­fec­tive, com­fort­able and stylish. It’s in­vis­i­ble un­der cloth­ing and smoothes beau­ti­fully.

✭✭✭✭ SHAPEWEAR DRESS SHAPER (54789029) ABOUT R260; FOS­CHINI

This open-bust slip is ideal if you want to tar­get mul­ti­ple ar­eas. Most testers found that it made a no­tice­able dif­fer­ence to their over­all shape, but that the bot­tom rode up. One ex­pe­ri­enced bulging around her up­per thighs be­cause the fit was too snug. Larger-busted testers loved this slip be­cause they could wear a bra for added sup­port.

Verdict: This shaper is re­stric­tive af­ter a few hours, but well worth the smooth fin­ish for those spe­cial oc­ca­sions.
