The New Shapewear You Should Buy Now |
These days, every brand you turn to offers shapewear in some form. Whether it’s tummy tucking knickers or waist-cinching belts, every high street name has turned its hand to smoothing out those lumps and bumps – but, as we all know, you get what you pay for, and sometimes you have to spend that little bit extra for a really good effect. Enter Heist, the luxury tights label team SL have long relied on for flattering, durable hosiery…

The Brand

Heist is one of the most reliable tights brands out there, removing the seams, gussets and adding adaptive waistbands to guarantee they’re as comfortable and wearable as possible. And now, they’ve turned their winning formula to shapewear, finally launching the much-lauded Outer Body full body suit.

The Finished Look

The brand interviewed over 1000 women about what they wanted from their shapewear, and the result is a seamless style which lies flat and mimics your body’s natural curves, giving you an authentically smoother finish. It's designed to defines your waist without restricting or constricting your body, and can still take up to a whopping 5cm off your waist.

The Science

We all know there’s nothing worse than sweltering inside your shaping underwear, and Heist has thought of that too – there are 20,000 laser perforations in each piece, meaning they’re actually breathable, unlike many of the high street’s alternatives.

The Sizing

The Outer Body runs in 4 sizes, which range from a UK 8 to 22, plus it features thermal moulded cups that adjust from a size B to F cup. There’s also none of that lying on the floor, wrestling to get into the material with this one – it’s easy to pull on thanks to its stretchy fabric.

The Care

Heist recommend handwashing the Outer Body, but it is also machine washable – that’s music to our ears…
