'They smooth out my tummy': Get 4 pairs of sweat-wicking undies on sale for $18

'For the win — no wedgies': Over 67,000 Amazon shoppers say they're the triple threat of panties: breathable, soft and supportive.

Undies with tummy control may not always be the cutest undergarments out there, but they're certainly handy when you're looking for a little extra support. But finding a pair that's comfortable is a feat. Luckily, unicorns do exist — and over 67,000 Amazon shoppers have found one in Wirarpa High-Waisted Cotton Briefs. They say they're much comfier than shapewear, with more coverage than the skimpier styles that seem to be taking over these days. The best part? Prime members can snag 'em on sale for under $5 a pop!

We love these jewel tones, but the undies also come in a dozen other combos, whether you like brights, pastels, neutrals or all of the above (prices vary depending on selection). Get them in sizes up to 5X.

Why is this a good deal? 💰

Finding a multipack of comfy tummy-control panties will usually run you $30 and up — and sometimes you can pay that for just one pair from higher-end brands. And since $31 is the regular price for this four-pack of Wirarpa High-Waisted Cotton Briefs, grabbing them for $18 is a great deal. Not a Prime member? They're still on sale for $20 — not too shabby!

Why do I need this? 🧐

What sets these briefs apart from the rest? They provide moderate tummy control that's not constricting, fans say. These super-softies sit over the belly button to keep you feeling nice and supported, and the extra-thick band won't roll down.

Made of a breathable, sweat-wicking cotton-spandex blend, they're stretchy enough that you'll be able to move around in comfort, while their wide band acts as a supportive panel to help keep everything in place. Another plus? They've got full-coverage backs, in case you're not a fan of "cheekier" undies, and many Amazon customers assure us they don't ride up (the worst).

You have your pick of 13 different sets, meaning you can grab a nude pack for white pants season or mix it up with bright colors. You do you! Just keep in mind the price may vary depending on your selection.

What reviewers say 💬

With over 67,000 perfect ratings, Wirarpa High-Waisted Cotton Briefs are bona fide Amazon legends. Reviewers of all ages sing their praises.

Pros 👍

"Finding anything that helps flatter my natural curves can be difficult," wrote a happy shopper. "It's my first time ordering these, and I love them. They are really comfortable. They don't roll down. They don't cut into me ... they smooth out my stomach and backside just enough to look sexy but still realistic. These aren't uncomfortably tight. They don't feel restricting, either ... This shapewear won't 'snatch your waist' like others, but if you just need a little something to hold you together around your stomach and hips, these are great!"

"These are the best panties I have found that actually hold your stomach in," wrote another rave reviewer. "I'm not skinny or fat, [but] I have the 50-year-old pooch that does not look smooth in tight clothes. These panties smooth out my tummy and make me look flat-bellied."

"These are the softest, most comfortable underwear I've ever worn," a third enthusiastic fan said. "They are more of an everyday thing and since I am retired, everyday wear is my go-to. By that I mean shorts, jeans, billowing sundresses, etc ... Washing and drying were no problem. These did not shrink or become distorted in any way. Oh, and for the win — no wedgies!"

"Beautiful, colorful and comfortable!" exclaimed another shopper. "I've given up trying to buy panties at stores. Everything is thongs, boy shorts, high-cut, etc. My body just doesn't work with the 'new' panty selection. These panties are wonderful. They are comfortable. The colors are vibrant. I won't buy anything else."

Cons 👎

Some reviewers say the cut isn't quite perfect, while others say these aren't the most stylish undies in their collection.

"Just restrictive enough to keep your wobbly bits from, well, wobbling, but not so much that you're wanting to yank them off in a public bathroom and flush them," said a fan. But they had this critique: "Four not five stars because I wish the leg openings were a little bigger, but then they'd maybe ride up, which they don't."

"They're not very sexy, but since I've gained weight this last year, I've decided to embrace the granny panties!" said a final shopper. "These are comfortable and offer some much-needed belly support without being unable to breathe or move."

These neutrals should be a staple in everyone's wardrobe.
