If there’s one thing most celebrities swear by on the red carpet — even if they don’t admit it — it’s shapewear. These highly functional pieces have become important parts of an outfit, lifting up and sucking in anything and anywhere that may need a bit of smoothing. And who doesn’t love that?

We all want to look and feel our best when we get dressed and SPANX is a great way to help achieve that if you want a little help smoothing things out (or if you’re just looking to purchase quality underwear that doesn’t show visible panty lines). But with so many shapewear options available in the market, it can be difficult to know exactly which styles work best under each outfit without adding bulk or bulge in the wrong places. That’s why we’ve picked out our favorites from the industry leader, SPANX (all of which are under $100) and matched each one to the outfit they work best under.

These are the best under-$100 SPANX shapewear pieces to shop:
