One of the most common questions that we get asked is what kind of undergarments can be worn under Herve Leger. We're here to tackle that very private question. :) Here are the panties and shapewear that we recommend for tight sexy Herve Leger dresses.
This guide can also be used for any bandage or body-con dresses.
The best panties to wear under Herve Leger are seamless bikini style bottoms. Other underwear like boy shorts or panties with bows and lace may show, depending on the Herve Leger dress.
Seamless panties are easy to find. You can pick them up almost anywhere: Target, Victoria Secret, and department stores. There are many reasons to love these panties. Besides being seamless, they are some of the most comfortable panties one can find. Here are some options: here or super seamless Commando panties.
Btw, the Commando panties are truly amazing. They are incredibly soft, smooth, and really difficult to detect under clothing.
You really don't need to wear shapewear under Herve Leger. The dresses are generally made of thick bandage material that sculpt the body anyway. However, if you're greedy ;), shapewear can provide extra control and shaping!
There are a few rules to follow when selecting shapewear for Herve Leger:
1. The shapewear should be high waisted and start underneath the bust. Shapewear that starts mid-waist is easy to see when worn underneath Herve Leger.
2. The shapewear should also end ideally at the panty-line to be the most invisible. If you want shaping for the thigh area, shapewear with partial legging is usually ok too.
3. Stay away from lace, bows, boning, and other embellishments.
4. Look for the words "firm" or "extra firm" in the description. These shapers will provide the strongest hold.
5. Finally, the shaper should have rubber grips to prevent rolling at the edges.
Here is a pic of shapers that follow the rules:
