Finding the best shapewear from reputable brands such as Spanx can often be a little bit of a strain on the pockets, but not if you're looking for fantastic dupes and, more specifically, the best Spanx dupes. Wearing shapewear isn't about squeezing into that old bodycon dress in the back of your wardrobe. Whether you have a petite frame or are a plus-sized girl, shapewear is about control and support while feeling confident in your body. How to deal with this? Support your wardrobe makeover with the very best SPANX dupes on the market.

Celebs like Kim Kardashian - who launched her own underwear, loungewear and shapewear brand, SKIMS, back in 2018 - have put shapewear fully on our fashion radar, and we've been obsessed ever since. So, whether you're looking for a newer SKIMS dupe (trust us, there are TONNES) or just want some good ol' shapewear knickers, we've got you covered.

Spanx Thinstincts® 2.0 High-Waisted Mid-Thigh Short

Those dedicated OG shapewear users out there, who have been pulling up high-waisted pants for as long as they can remember, will be even more shocked to find out that SPANX history dates back to 1998 - the same year Britney Spears released her iconic Baby One More Time single. Nostalgia or what. Today, SPANX has branched out into shapewear bodysuits, bras, and activewear. Heck, they even make head-to-toe collections of blazers, suit trousers and more now. Still, as iconic as it was back then, this legendary shapewear brand can end up costing a pretty penny.

How to stop SPANX from rolling down

There's nothing worse than throwing some shapes at a wedding or dashing off to the supermarket and finding that your shapewear is starting to peel off your body. If you're looking for solutions to stop your SPANX dupes from rolling down, we've got you.

The first tip is to look for gorgeous tummy control shapewear that features a silicone waistband - this stuff will help the fabric cling to your body.

Alternatively, try pulling the waistband up under your bra and using the bra's underwire to keep it in place. If the length of the piece doesn't allow it, try securing it in place with some body tape.
