Shapewear

Ever since my son was born 4 years ago I starting wearing shapewear religiously. I currently own 6 different types and wear them all the time! I don't care how small or large you are, if you have had kids or not, I  just think the body looks nicer smoothed out in clothes. 
Have you ever seen the movie Steel Magnolias? There is a quote where Dolly Parton says "I haven't left my house without lycra on since I was 15 years old." Shirley MacLaine's response, "you were raised right." lol If you think about it generations upon generations of women have always worn tight undergarments under their clothes. Maybe I'm old fashioned but I agree. I rarely leave my house without shapewear under (unless of course I'm just hanging with the kids or running errands or something like that).
Here are examples of the 6 different kinds I own:

What do you guys think? Are you a shapewear lover like me or not so much?

I love shapewear! I call them skinny shirts. I have 3 of those styles and wear mine almost everyday too. My hubby even has a skinny shirt.

I've never worn shapewear, but now I'm feeling like I should give it a test run.

I have 2 I wear the most and thats the "high-waisted long leg" and the cami tank. They stay in place and the high waisted one is great under maxi dresses and dresses alike! ;)

We are SERIOUSLY obsessed with shapewear. Marshalls, Nordstrom Rack, and TJ Maxx are great places to find discounted ones.
