  1. 1

    Wear underwear that is a lighter colour than your clothing. For example, if you are wearing a white shirt or trousers, wear white underwear. Make sure you cannot see your underwear through your garments.

  2. 2

    Slim your body with under garment support. Wear a body slimmer under a dress or tight clothing. Regardless of your size or shape, wear a body shaping under garment for control and support.

  3. 3

    Choose your bra correctly. For example, when wearing a halter top, wear a bra that converts into a halter bra. In this instance, a bra strap will appear tacky. Buy a convertible bra to keep in your wardrobe. This way, no matter what type of top you wear, you will have a bra that can easily convert into a halter bra.

  4. 4

    Avoid the dreaded "panty line". To avoid a visible pany line, wear a body shaper, thin boy shorts, g-string or thong underneath your clothing. Choose a light colour.

  5. 5

    Avoid wearing satin or silk underwear in the summer. Consider light, cotton underwear to avoid being uncomfortable, or worse, starting to sweat, which will make you feel awful.

  6. 6

    Wear underwear that compliments the shape of your clothes. If you are wearing a low v-neck, wear a bra that is appropriate for that type of shirt. If you are wearing a pair of low-waist jeans, wear underwear that will not stick out the back.

  7. 7

    Wear supportive underwear when exercising. Wear a sports bra and cotton underwear to increase comfortable during exercise.
