Which Shapewear Is Best For Plus-Size Figures?


What Does It Mean To Have A Plus-Size Figure?

A plus size figure is defined as anything larger than a size 18 in the realm of shapewear. Most shapewear firms provide products up to a size 18 in their basic line. Over this size, there are fewer brands that make shapewear.

The Best Plus Shapewear Brands Are:

Trinny and Susannah

Plus-size shapewear from Trinny and Susannah is fantastic. Their all-in-ones fit up to a UK dress size 22, with a 40″ waist and 50″ hip measurement. The larger sizes are well-made, with plenty of length and fabric to help conceal and slim you down. They’re also made with EXTRA FIRM control fabric, which helps to keep everything in place.

One of my favourite items of shapewear is the Esbelt Waist Cincher. Because it is so powerful, it truly TRANSFORMS your figure. It’s boned and made of latex rubber (with nice cotton inside), so it can truly hold you in and make a difference. The 4XL is the largest size available, and it fits the UK dress size 28 or a weight of 20 stone.


Spanx makes a good amount of plus-size shapewear. The following are two excellent Spanx plus-size shapewear pieces:
