Shoppers compare this $30 tummy-control bodysuit to Skims — it's a sleek 35% off

Let's be honest: No one wants to spend hours shopping for shapewear only to find that it makes no difference. Finding a bodysuit that smooths your body under your favorite outfits and lifts in all the right places is an exercise we've all taken on at some point. But now, scoring the right piece is simple. You can get the Shaperx bodysuit — a Skims alternative — starting at just $31, down from $48. It contours the body and adds tummy control when you need it. And dare we say, it's somehow ... comfortable?

A No. 1 Amazon bestseller, this shape-shifting bodysuit comes in 13 colors, from black to vibrant pink, as well as different cuts, like shorts and thong.

Shapewear can be pricey — something similar from Kim Kardashian's Skims costs $70. Even at its regular price, the Shaperx bodysuit is a bargain! But the price drop hasn't been this steep in weeks — so if you'd like to snap up some shapewear to feel comfy and confident in your summer sundresses, we suggest grabbing one (or two) of these now.

This bodysuit is an affordable option if you're looking to smooth your figure and add tummy control. It's made from 80% nylon and 20% spandex, which balances stretch and compression. So what makes shoppers rave about this pick? Most reviewers compare the smoothing effects to those of Skims bodysuits. Yes, it's that good.

The shapewear smooths your midsection and lifts your bust without giving a tight, compressed feeling. Instead, it hugs your body in all the right places, adding a seamless shape. The bodysuit is also lined and even comes in a thong design. It also has adjustable straps that fit all cup sizes, and the shorts versions add additional shaping to the thigh and booty areas. What's not to love?

Over 20,500 five-star reviewers give the tummy-control bodysuit their stamp of approval.

"I actually love this shapewear!" one shopper wrote. "Don't have extremely high expectations that it's going to transform you into looking like you just left Dr. Miami's office, but it definitely smooths, hugs and compresses you to accentuate your natural shape! Great tummy control, super comfortable and made me look great!"

Some compression bodysuits bunch up under your clothes, but not this one, as an "obsessed" customer attested: "It’s so comfy! It doesn't ride up. I wore this on a night out and didn't feel suctioned into it like I normally would with shapewear by the end of the night. I feel confident in my jeans again."

"Girl, when I tell you I'm shocked, I am!" said this convert. "I was so skeptical because I buy and buy shapewear, and it's always disappointing, but girl, this one right here is the one, and even better, it is so comfortable! I am definitely buying more!"

"I'm a Skims stan and normally don’t purchase dupes of Skims products because I rarely find something to be a true dupe. This, however, is gold," raved one fan. "I've worn it under tops where I wanted smoothing/slimming, and it's great for that too. For this item in particular, definitely save your money on Skims and purchase this one."

One devotee noted that "The only tiny thing that I haven't 100% loved about it is that the bust line is a little high," but added in their five-star write-up, "The wonderful thing about this shaper is that it actually works how it should. It doesn't ride up or down, it doesn't bunch, it is breathable enough that I don't feel like I am dying, and it smooths everything out and provides protection from chub rub. The shorts are short enough for cocktail dresses, and it is easy enough to pull them shorter if need be and adjust the shaper accordingly."

Another reviewer added advice for bountifully chested customers: "Large-busted ladies may need to consider that this may not encompass your girls entirely," they wrote. "There is definitely spillage. And because of the compression, the line at the top of the cup is not terribly comfortable and digs in."

Thanks to the adjustable straps, this shapewear can fit all bra sizes.
