Best Spanx For Tummy Control – SPANX OnCore Bodysuit Review

Tummy Control

The demand for modern shapewear has been rising as more women are becoming more conscious of their figure.

Unfortunately, many of us do not have the ‘flawless’ figure. To many women, the most common issue they have with their figure is their tummy bulge. Many women, regardless of age and size, face this tummy issue!

More women have been wearing shapewear as a solution to make their tummy bulge look less obvious.

With the demand for such shapewear increasing, more players are entering the Shapewear market.

Each of these companies introduces their own unique features into their products to differentiate their shapewear from other brands.

With so many options present, it can be quite challenging to look for the best shapewear for tummy control.

To date, SPANX remains one of the most popular shapewear brand, especially with the brand being the favorite among many celebrities.

In this post, I will be writing about the Spanx Oncore Mid-Thigh Bodysuit as one of the Best Spanx for tummy control.

This is a very popular choice among women as it does the job and is very comfortable. There are also good reviews on this Spanx bodysuit.


SPANX Inc. is founded in Atlanta, Georgia by Sara Blakely.

Sara got her inspiration from cutting off the feet of her control top pantyhose, in order to obtain a smooth look under her white pants, for a party.

Now, SPANX is located in more than 50 countries worldwide and is one of the leading manufactures of shapewear!

Which Part Of The Body Does The SPANX OnCore Bodysuit Targets? SPANX Bodysuit For Tummy

The SPANX OnCore Mid-Thigh Bodysuit targets shaping from just below the busts to the waists. In other words, it really targets the tummy area!

As there is a fully bonded tummy panel at the front, it is very effective in flattening the tummy bulge.

The tummy is tugged in snugly but yet not too tight. As a result, the tummy will appear flatter without feeling the discomfort due to too much constriction.

There are also two bonded side panels at the left and right side of the tummy. These two side panels provides a non-squeeze slimming effect on both sides of the waists.

As such, your waist will appear much slimmer and sculpted.

The squeeze-free slimming of the two panels allows the wearer to move freely without much restrictions.

In this way, you will be able to perform daily duties with ease!

The presence of the front and side panels provides an all rounded shaping around the waist area.

What you will get is a slimmer and curvy figure with maximum comfort!

Material, Design Color & Shaping Level

The SPANX OnCore Mid-Thigh Bodysuit is made of 80% Nylon and 20% Imported Spandex/Elastane.

Elastane is a premium material which provides permanent elasticity.

This means that even though the material is stretched, it will always revert back to its original shape and position.

With the presence of elastane, you can be assured that this bodysuit will be able to last you for a long time.

The material is light-weight and it has a seamless design.

These two features make it possible to remain unnoticed when worn under any light-weight clothing.

The seamless design also extends to the leg openings which enables them to stay invisible under any clothing!

Hence, there will be no awkward and visible lines across the thighs even if you wear thin, flowy dresses or pants.

The OnCore Mid-Thigh Bodysuit has a Shaping Level of 3 – the highest support level in Spanx shapewear.

It is rather amazing to me that despite being light-weight, the shapewear is still able to provide powerful shaping/sculpting ability.

Therefore, this shapewear is both powerful and comfortable!

This OnCore Bodysuit comes in two colors, namely black and nude colors. Spanx Bodysuit For Tummy

More Features

The SPANX OnCore Mid-Thigh Bodysuit has bonded neckline and underarms.

This makes it possible for the material to remain lightweight without compromising comfort.

This bonded feature prevents the material from rubbing against your skin.

There are also enhancing pockets for the butts.

These pockets will prevent the butts from appearing to be joined together (uni-butt), which can be rather unsightly and make women appear less attractive and sexy!

The presence of adjustable straps means that this bodysuit can be adjusted to suit women with different heights or torso length.

This feature provides more comfort as you will not face with the common problem of wearing a bodysuit with very tight shoulder straps.

SPANX also added a double gusset opening to help make going to the restroom easier for the wearer.

While many bodysuits requires hand washing, the OnCore Mid-Thigh Bodysuit is machine-washable as long as it is washed under gentle cycle and cold water.

Ironing is strongly not recommended.

The SPANX OnCore Mid-Thigh Bodysuit comes with non-compression bust.

The advantage of having non-compression bust is that it not only prevents flattening of the busts, but also provides more comfort.

However, for women who are looking for shapewear which also provides enhancement to the busts, the non-compression bust can be a disadvantage.

One way to solve this is to wear an additional shapewear bra which provides support and enhances the busts at the same time.

If you have fuller busts, even if you are not looking into enhancing the busts, I strongly recommend wearing a bra to provide some support for your busts.

Women with much smaller busts might not need to wear a bra at all.

Things To Note

According to many women, their first impression of the SPANX OnCore Mid-Thigh Bodysuit is that it appears to be too small for them.

They were worried that they would not be able to put on the bodysuit.

However, many has confirmed that they did manage to fit in after all.

In addition to this, once they manage to wear the bodysuit, every thing kind of went into place by itself!



The OnCore Mid-Thigh Bodysuit is a durable piece which provides all rounded and effective shaping to the tummy.

What is most amazing is that it is able to shape and slim everything without feeling uncomfortable constrictions.

This bodysuit might be a little costly. However, it might be a good investment as it has almost everything we would like to have in a shapewear – effective shaping, comfort and durability.

  1. Thank you so much for giving such a thorough review. You’ve provided so much valuable information, and I’ve gained so much knowledge by reading it. I’ve been thinking of getting shapewear, but with so many options I wasn’t sure where to start.

    I loved finding out that Spanx has come out with this comfortable option in shapewear. It seems just about everyone would be able to use the Spanx OnCore without feeling constricted – which is one of my concerns. Machine washable, knowing they don’t stretch out and actually retains its shape are all winning attributes in my book.

    I’ll definitely look into getting one and thank you for making the decision process so much easier.

  2. This bodysuit sounds like the perfect one! I’ve currently got some shapewear that is high around my waist but as I wear it, it bunches so isn’t comfortable and I don’t feel like I can trust it to stay in position. This bodysuit sounds like it would not have any issues with moving and would allow my tummy to look flat. I love that shapewear is growing in popularity and making it possible for so many of us who have a tummy, especially after having kids to have a flatten look. Thanks heaps for sharing.

  3. Thanks for your sharing here. I like the way you talked about these shapewears with a lot of useful details, not only its advantages, but also included the things to note points. You also provided some solutions to the problem of non-compression bust. Your tips are helpful to customers who have such problems.

    I think the The SPANX OnCore Mid-Thigh Bodysuit is better than the first one. Comfortable to wear is very important to me. I will choose some shapewears which are made of material that prevent rubbing against my skin. The adjustable straps are good, can make it longer or shorter.

  4. Hi Lynn

    For me, it’s all about comfort and pulling in my torso. I’m definitely looking into these a little further. I’ve never really owned spanx before, but as a 42 yr old woman who has delivered two babies…… it’s time.
    I’m glad that you mentioned that a number of woman saw these as too small at first but once having wore them in, became quite comfortable. Now I know to keep that in mind when I order my pair. I love that it’s flexible to accommodate each woman’s shape and size, that’s fantastic.

    Thanks for this informative review, the more I read about spanx products the more I think it’s time to make my first purchase.

    Thanks again for the information, very helpful.


  5. Wow,
    This is a great practical review with just enough detail- and a handy link, thank you for this. Also yes haha! They can look too small but have faith in my experience spanx items do fit well even when it looks like they wont 🙂

  6. The Spanx mid thigh bodysuit sounds like the perfect solution for tummy bulges. I love the idea it’s lightweight and holds it’s shape. The bonded side panels are a nice touch, especially as they allow you to move freely without feeling restricted in any way. I was thinking about buying a shapewear garment and will definitely consider this one. Thank you for sharing:)

  7. Hello, thank you for all this information. Can I ask you, from your experience, do you find that they are uncomfortable to wear for a long period of time. I just can’t seem to visualize myself wearing these if I was out at a special event for the whole night. Does it affect your circulation at all?

    1. Hi! I do not wear shapewear everyday. However, I do wear shapewear whenever I am wearing outfits which are more snugly to hide my tummy. Normally, I wear it from morning 8am till latest 9pm. I do feel some constrictions when I started wearing shapewear but after some time, I seemed to be able to get used to it now. The feeling of constriction at the beginning is also not to the extend of being uncomfortable, it was just like I was able to feel that I wore an additional layer inside! Hope you will find my explanations helpful!

  8. These are great for those who have a tummy buldge I like that they are made out of breathable material. How would I know what size to choose? Would it have to be a size smaller than what you actually are?

    1. Hi! Thank you so much for your comment. You can refer to their size chart to determine the right size for you!

  9. I didn’t know that this existed. It appears to be very practical and comfortable. I would love to try it out to flatten my litlle tummy, although it really isn’t a big tummy “issue” 😉 fortunately 🙂
    Thank you for giving such a thorough explanation. I will be looking into this.
