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.
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!
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!
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.
