It’s the biggest shapewear challenge yet - A Current Affair compares the biggest brands for tummy-tuck tops and Bridget Jones bottoms on real women to determine which is the most comfortable, the most affordable and the most effective.
We've trialled shapewear for every size and here are the results
Danielle, our size 20-22, is a blogger and photographer at www.danimezza.com
Her favourite shapewear in the shorts range was the Slim Form from Big W - $20.
She found they were comfortable and didn't roll up - giving her nice smooth, round curves.
Her second favourite was the Long Leg Firm Support Brief from Target - $20.
She found they indented on her legs and weren't very flattering - it also had an unattractive seam.
Her least liked shapewear were the Dr Rey shorts, $39 from Target.
She said her thighs had never been in more pain!
Monica was our young mum and a size 12.
She trialled the slips and her favourite was the Clio Secret Slimmers from K-Mart - $20.
These were comfortable and changed her body shape.
Her second favourite was the Shape Your Body Seamfree Slip from Target $25.
These flattened her tummy but rubbed a bit between her legs.
Her least favourite were the Seamless Strapless Hold Me Tight Shapewear from Big W $30.
They were comfortable but cut into her arms a bit and hard to get on and off
Elise was our size 16 and tested the high waisted briefs.
She loved the Instant Shape by Anabella - $30 from Big W.
She said they even felt slink and sexy.
Her second favourite were the Ricky Lee Hold Me Tight High Waisted Briefs $25 from Big W.
They stood the dancing test and she had no lumps or bumps.
Her least favourite were the Dr Rey Shapers, $39 from Target.
They looked like Bridget Jones undies and were uncomfortable after wearing them all day
