Rosebuds under a skirt: nice ("You don't want an orthopedic-looking foundation garment," Nethero says). A lace boy short has a vintage pinup-girl vibe—the color is "antique" beige—but the thin, second-skin control fabric is comfortably modern.

"All women have lots of soft tissue, even when we're not overweight," Nethero says. "If your panties grab hold, the lines are going to show." This low-profile shaper has a front panel to control jelly-prone hips and bellies; people with flat-butt issues will love its derriere-enhancing back seam.

Now you can get thongs and shapewear in one package. A waist-to-hip control panel targets the areas accentuated by the skirt; the longish panty is sheer but strong. Don't worry if you work long hours; finespun microfiber is a flexible companion.
