The Hero Items Our Editors Always Wear Under Their Clothes

Adding to our underwear draw is like doing our weekly food shop—it's pretty much essential. But if you choose the right items you shouldn't have to add to it as often as you may think. Luckily, Heist is a one-stop-shop when it comes to shapewear and our editors are big fans. Assistant Editor Nell Block said, "I've had my same pair of The Thirty tights for over a year. They've lasted so well, have the perfect amount of stretch and don't go baggy—even through wearing them as my maternity tights. I literally recommend them to anyone and everyone!"

Tights can be tricky to style with dresses, but once you find the right pair, it's made a whole lot easier. From nude styles (in seven different shades, mind you) to fishnet pairs for parties, Heist has got you covered, quite literally. It's not just tights either—Heist's smoothing bodysuits are gaining a lot of interest, and the WWW team has already tried The Body with a top worn with jeans. There's no more hiding away your underwear solutions, people. If you've got them, flaunt them!

Party season might be a distant memory, but we can all do with a helping hand with spring weddings coming up, and the high-waist smoothing briefs and shorts are guaranteed to give extra confidence to those floral midi dresses. So, what are you waiting for? Scroll down to see our favourite shapewear picks.

1. The Body

Designed to smooth and support, the body is no longer made to be hidden, these ones look just as good worn as a top, too.

Brown shades are the new black this season, so this body will work well with a tonal outfit. 

So good with cream jeans and snake-print boots. 

Layer this under a silver sequinned dress. 

2. The High Waist

Because big pants are comfortable, seamless and make us feel confident in all the right places, they get everyone's approval. The bigger the better, in our opinion!

The high waist style will also keep you cosy. 

Bridget Jones, eat your heart out. 

3. The Short

This longline underwear solution will not only keep you cosy during the cooler months, but they'll also have a smoothing effect under party dresses. Get them in black, brown or cream. 

Just like cycling shorts, you'll be able to wear them under dresses.

The longer length will help you avoid chaffing.

They come in sizes extra small to extra large.

4. The Tights

There's no denying it's tights weather and Heist has a pair for everyone. Switch from the iconic Thirty to Fifty to Eighty styles as the temperature drops. Add to this the nude pair in seven different shades and the ideal fishnet for wedding season, and you have your tights collection sorted. 

Opaque tights are essential for autumn/winter. 

Wear with a long-sleeved minidress and heels for evening.

Pick your shade and layer under trousers when it gets extra chilly.
