It's no wonder so many women consider shapewear to be a wardrobe essential. The right shaper—whether it's a waist cincher, a mid-thigh bodysuit or a high-waisted thong-style panty—helps the wearer feel more confident and more at ease. Clothing fits the way it's designed to fit when bulges are strategically slimmed and smoothed. Among the top brands offered at Nordstrom, you'll find genuine SPANX shapewear, the label that modernized the industry in 2000 after founder Sara Blakely cut the feet off her control-top pantyhose to cure a bad case of her own VPL: visible panty line. Nordstrom offers a deep range of styles designed to work under any garment, from a T-shirt to slacks to a dramatic strapless gown. You'll also find a full range of sizes, including petite and plus-size shapewear—plus maternity shapers that support the belly to ease back discomfort.
