For many full figured women, wearing a girdle, also known as a body shaper, makes them feel extra feminine and sexy while providing needed support for their abdomen and lower back. Depending on the style of girdle, additional benefits include:
- A firmer and flatter abdomen
- Reduced waistline
- Reduced saddle bag area
- Raised buttocks
- Eliminate bumps and bulges in the hip, thigh and leg areas
- Eliminate midriff bulge
- Help with better posture

Ranging from panty girdles to long leg shapers to full-body briefer styles, plus size women have a variety of types and styles of girdles available to them. Many of the styles also offer different degrees of support, referred to as light, medium or firm control.
Briefs and Long Leg Styles
One of the most popular girdle styles is the panty girdle also called a brief. This style girdle gives support to the tummy, hip and butt areas. High waist briefs are also available. Another popular style, the long leg girdle provides support and smooth lines from the tummy area to the thighs. Variations of the long leg style include:
Body Briefers and Body Girdles
Resembling a one-piece bathing suit, a body briefer all-in-one girdle provides full body support. This type of lingerie has a hook-and-eye gusset closure at the crotch and is also available in a long leg style. A full figured body girdle sculpts your figure into luscious curves as it slims your waist and flattens your tummy. Body girdles are manufactured in long leg, capri and pant lengths.
Open Bottom Girdles and Full Slip Shapewear
Open bottom girdles offer a slimming alternative to wearing a garter belt with your stockings. This girdle style, with its attached garters, is available in many beautiful styles and lengths including brief, high waist and long leg.
