Over 65,000 shoppers adore these comfy, tummy-taming undies — stock up while 4-packs are down to $14

Underwear with tummy control that's actually comfortable? It might sound like an oxymoron, but these unicorns exist — just ask the more than 65,000 Amazon shoppers who are five-star fans of Wirarpa High-Waisted Cotton Briefs. These super-softies sit just over the belly button to keep you feeling nice and supported, and the extra-thick band stays put, reviewers say. They're much comfier — and more breathable — than compression shapewear. The best part: You can snag 'em on sale for under $4 a pair.

"Oh my gosh, underwear that fits perfectly," one reviewer gushed. "I'm in my 70s with a flat butt that most underwear slips up on, but these fit and hold me together, even after many washings."

Why is this a good deal? 💰

Finding a multipack of comfy tummy-control panties can run you $50 or more. Wirarpa High-Waisted Cotton Briefs regularly run just $20 to $31 per four-pack, but with the current discount, you'll save about 30%, making them an even better deal.

Why do I need this? 🤔

Here's what sets these briefs apart from the rest, fans say: They provide moderate midsection control that's not constricting. Made of a breathable, sweat-wicking cotton-spandex blend, they're stretchy enough to let you move around in comfort while their wide band helps keep everything in place. They also come in a range of colors, so you can find a pair that works best under white sundresses or light-colored trousers.

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 actual worst!).

What reviewers say 💬

With an impressive 65,000-plus perfect ratings, Wirarpa High-Waisted Cotton Briefs are bona fide Amazon legends.

Pros 👍

"Finding anything that helps flatter my natural curves can be difficult," wrote one 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 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."

"Beautiful, colorful and comfortable!" exclaimed a final fan. "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 👎

Shoppers warn that these panties run a little small. Many reviewers suggested choosing a size up, especially because they tend to shrink.

"I love these panties, the fabric and the fit," wrote one person. "But after the first wash, they were tighter. I would recommend going up one size, which is what I will do on my next order."

"Just pay attention to the measurement guide when ordering, especially hip measurements," advised another. "I'm glad I did that; I went by the hip measurement vs. waist measurement, which resulted in me ordering a size up. I’m glad I did, because they fit so comfortably ... I hate underwear that digs in or rides up, and these do neither."

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