Best Shapewear on a Budget
Everyday Shapewear: Assets by Sara Blakely
Do you dream of Spanx, but can’t afford the high price tag? Then you’ll love Assets (we really love assets), the less-expensive version of Spanx sold at Target and now JCPenney. They don’t have quite the engineering of the originals, but it’s a little easier to get in and out of them–and easier to breathe.
Fantastic Firmers control panties are $14-$16 (the Spanx verison is $40), and a full slip is $42 (approximately half of the higher-priced option). We’re also huge fans of the Assets tights–we go up a size for maximum opaqueness.
