Eliminate Panty Lines
Like them or not, thongs do this job best. Look for thin fabrics, like mesh or microfiber, to maximize comfort and invisibility. Try Commando precision-cut thong ($20, herlook.com) and OnGossamer mesh thong ($16, Intimacy, 877-224-4287). If you want more coverage, Nethero says, boy shorts with flat, minimally trimmed, or laser-cut edges are nearly undetectable, too. Whichever style you choose, she recommends letting "the shape of your underwear mirror the shape of your clothing." (Translation: If you're wearing high-rise pants, don't wear low-rise panties.)
Banish the Bulges
"Shaping products transform your body no gym required," Nethero says. "They help clothes fall smoothly and give you extra confidence because you're not walking around jiggling." Forget girdles: Today's versions are made of thin, stockinglike material and are more comfortable. Try Spanx Power Panty ($30, Nordstrom), which slims your midriff, tummy, butt, and thighs.
