Best shapewear for the tummy: From M&S to Spanx, Skims, John Lewis & MORE

Feel confident in any outfit with supportive shapewear - noone will know the difference

We are always on the hunt for comfortable, yet supportive, shapewear, and one of the most common areas to address is the stomach.

Kim Kardashian recently revealed she had to cut her SKIMS shapewear for the Oscars 2022 to make it fit under her electric blue awards dress, without anyone knowing she wore the suck-in creation from her own brand - and we were none the wiser. 

While some may wear shapewear to cinch in their tummy, others may wear for a smoother silhouette, or to sculpt the figure and give a little lift to enhance certain assets.
