Finding good shapewear that gives you the control and smoothness you need under clothes, without being so tight you can barely breathe or eat, is up there with finding a flattering swimsuit.
It's stressful and fraught with failure.
Until now. Our high street stalwart, Marks & Spencer, always gives good underwear, and that also extends to the brand's shapewear, too.
Especially these £29.50 Magicwear™ Tummy Control & Thigh Slimmer Shorts, which are flying off the virtual shelves as we write.
And there's a myriad of great reasons why they're being snapped up by savvy shoppers.
Why we rate it
These Magicwear™ Tummy Control & Thigh Slimmer Shorts are designed to flatten your tummy, slim your hip area, and give you a sleeker silhouette.
They utilise M&S' special Magicwear™ technology which is all about smoothing and controlling, without having to sacrifice comfort.
If, like us, you're concerned about trying to struggle through a day wearing shapewear in the warm weather, M&S has you covered. Of course. The shorts also utilise the M&S Cool Comfort™ technology which is designed to ensure these shorts are cool to wear all day long.
Available in three colours (rich amber, opaline and black), the size range is UK 8 to 22.
No need for special washing instructions, either – you can throw them in the washing machine at 40°C, and you can tumble dry and iron them on cool settings.
Plus there's an added bonus – the shorts also stop thigh chafing, too.
What the reviews say
M&S shoppers especially love that this shapewear gives you a smoother, slimmer-looking silhouette, yet without feeling as restricted as you often can with this type of underwear.
"Great product, comfortable and stretchy. Not restrictive around the tummy but holds everything in."
"I have always bought Marks and Spencers lingerie, as they are so good to wear and wash brilliantly. These Magicwear are sooooo comfortable/ the best so far and pull me in all the right places, I would definitely recommend them, 10/10 for me!! Thanks again M&S."
"I purchased a size 12 so they would fit tight, well they flattened my hips straight away also didn’t feel too tight and held my tummy in."
"Does the job of holding your tummy in. Longer length stops thigh chafing. Stays put and does not roll up your legs."
