It's rare to find a bodysuit that is flattering, affordable and comfortable, but Amazon shoppers and TikTok users seem to have found the perfect trifecta in the Brabic Tummy Control Bodysuit. The shapewear first blew up on TikTok after user @moreclothesthansense posted a video comparing the flattering piece to the viral Skims bodysuit and saying that after trying both she preferred the cheaper Amazon lookalike. Since then, nearly 2,000 reviewers have given the shapewear item their seal of approval by way of a five-star rating, with many even calling it the “best bodysuit ever” — and it's on sale for only $17.
The viral video starts out with the user trying on the Skims bodysuit and raving about how “snatched” it made her look. She then switched into reviewing the Brabic option and noted the only difference she saw was that the back isn’t as low and the front straps are higher than the Skims bodysuit. But after wearing both, the TikTok creator said the Amazon dupe definitely sucks her in more. “Am I crazy or does this kind of make me look even more snatched than the Skims one,” she exclaimed. A commenter agreed, writing, “the Amazon one makes your waist look smaller…and it’s cheaper!”
The affordable bodysuit is made from a polyester and spandex blend that is not only soft and breathable, but will also hug you in all the right places thanks to its firm-control midsection, which sucks in your waist. “This is one of the best tummy control suits I’ve ever had,” raved one shopper. The bodysuit also has adjustable straps and provides full coverage in the back that will help lift and shape your bum. The three-hook closure at the crotch makes it bathroom-friendly — a must in bodysuits.
And TikTokers aren’t the only ones who like the bodysuit better than its brand-name counterpart. “I ended up returning my Skims shapewear for this,” wrote one reviewer. “It is very easy to put on, sucks in your waist, and is very comfortable compared to other shapewear out there.”
Another wrote, “OK, this is an absolute MUST! Not only does it snatch your waist but it's not uncomfortable either! I was actually shocked. (I've already tried two others and they SUCKED.) This was my last try, because people said it was better than the Skims. …They were RIGHT. I am buying another one and am very happy with it.”
While it’s designed to create a seamless base underneath your clothing, many shoppers say the bodysuit is so flattering that they wear it as a top underneath skirts or jeans. “I have been on the hunt for shapewear that is both comfortable and effective,” said one. “This one is perfect, held in my tummy and love handles but was really comfortable all night. It was pretty enough to pair with jeans without it being obvious it was shapewear, and I was confident having nothing over it.”
Sizes range from XS/S to 3XL/4XL, and it comes in both black and nude. Perhaps best of all, the popular piece of shapewear can be yours for as little as $18 when you click the on-site coupon for double discounts — meaning you can buy about three Brabic bodysuits for the price of one Skims (which will set you back $62).
