Shape Up1 of 10
By Tiffany Tse
Forget squeezing into constricting undergarments. The best way to conceal those extra holiday pounds is with clothing that has shapewear built in. We've found nine stylish pieces that discreetly slim your figure with sewn-in bodysuits, shaping panels and more. So go ahead and enjoy that slice of pie or second helping of stuffing—no one will be able to tell.
Good Jeans2 of 10
Levi's recently debuted a collection of shaping jeans made with a specially formulated fabric. The classic skinnies compress common problem areas (like the inner thighs and stomach), without losing their original shape—no matter how many times you wear them.

Jump Off3 of 10
If you think a jumpsuit's a bad idea to wear after a huge holiday feast, you'd be right in most cases. But Shape FX's sleek one-piece is constructed with a built-in bodysuit that tucks in your torso area, while the tapered pants drape easily over your legs. Dress it up with pointy-toe pumps and a statement necklace for a night out.

For a layered look that's not bulky, style Spanx's collared tank beneath a V-neck sweater or blazer. On top, it's a crisp button-down shirt, perfect for wearing to the office. On the bottom, it's slimming shapewear that sucks in your belly and love handles—and your coworkers will be none the wiser.

New label Project Gravitas lends an extra advantage to the already flattering little black dress. Each of the brand's dresses comes with built-in shapewear that's sewn to an empire-waist band inside.

Out of the Blue7 of 10
While it's easy to find casual shapewear basics like tanks and T-shirts, tracking down dressier options is another story. But Shape FX's embellished one-shoulder top, which has a hidden control panel to guarantee a flat tummy, is perfect party attire. If blue's not your color, it comes in two other shades.

It's a Wrap8 of 10
We all know wrap dresses flatter the figure by cinching the waist, but Saint Bustier's sophisticated dress does it one better with built-in shapewear. The result is a streamlined silhouette that smoothes out lumps. As a bonus, this dress accommodates women with bigger bust sizes—anything up to an H cup.

A body-con dress is the last thing you want to wear post-Thanksgiving. But if you've got a cocktail soiree on your calendar, try slipping into Yummie by Heather Thomson's printed mini. The dress comes with a comfortable built-in slip that shapes your stomach, hips and thighs, so the slimming side panels are just an added perk.
