WAIST-TO-LEG SHAPERS

Fairlady - - TESTING, TESTING... -

✭✭✭✭ TRI­UMPH SEAM­LESS LONG LEG (3239-2) ABOUT R390; TRI­UMPH OUT­LETS

Our plus-sized testers felt that this shaper smoothed and gave them a tauter-look­ing butt. It was fairly com­fort­able for some, while oth­ers felt it was tighter around the waist­band and dug into the tummy. While there is no bulging, the leg seam is slightly vis­i­ble un­der cloth­ing. This gar­ment gives your mid­dle and thighs def­i­ni­tion, and shapes the butt well. It’s also easy to put on and take off.

Verdict: Out­stand­ing con­trol and very wear­able.

✭✭✭✭ LONG LEG SHAPER (54789034) ABOUT R260; FOS­CHINI

If you’re okay with ef­fec­tive­ness over com­fort, this is the shaper to get. It of­fers ex­cel­lent con­trol and strong hold, and com­presses from the waist to thighs. The gar­ment also lifts the butt. The fab­ric is soft and thin, but less stretchy than some oth­ers tested. Testers found this shaper fairly com­fort­able but re­stric­tive af­ter a while; some noted pinch­ing on the sides.

Verdict: Most testers found the shaper tight and in­flex­i­ble but highly ef­fec­tive.

✭✭✭✭ SHEL­LEY FIRM CON­TROL LONG LEG SHAPER (53821629) ABOUT R169,95; EDGARS

This was a favourite among testers. The soft fab­ric is firm yet has lots of give – the shaper sup­ports with­out feel­ing re­stric­tive. It smoothes over cel­lulite, of­fers great con­trol and gives the butt a lift, all with­out caus­ing un­sightly bulges. While the thick waist­band pre­vents the shaper from creep­ing down, it can be hot in warm weather.

Verdict: A highly ef­fec­tive shaper that’s com­fort­able and easy on the pocket.
