Shoppers compare this tummy-control bodysuit to Skims — and it's just $30 at the Amazon Big Spring Sale

Let's be honest. No one wants to spend hours shopping for shapewear only to find that it makes no difference. Finding a bodysuit that smooths your body under your favorite outfits and lifts in all the right places is an exercise we've all taken on at some point. But now, scoring the right piece is simple, thanks to the Amazon Big Spring Sale. You can get the Shaperx bodysuit — a Skims alternative — starting at just $30 (was $48). It contours the body and adds tummy control when you need it. And dare we say, it's somehow... comfortable?

Check out the Shaperx below, and then take a peek at our additional Big Spring Sale coverage for even more sweet deals on apparel, home essentials, tech upgrades and everything else under the sun.

A No. 1 Amazon bestseller, this shape-shifting bodysuit comes in nine colors, from black to vibrant pink, as well as different cuts, like shorts and thong.

Why is it a good deal?

Shapewear can be pricey — something similar from Kim Kardashian's Skims costs $70. Even at its regular price, the Shaperx bodysuit is a bargain! But the price drop hasn't been this steep in weeks — so if you'd like to snap up some shapewear to help feel comfy and confident in all your spring sundresses, we suggest grabbing one (or two) of these now.

Why do I need this?

This bodysuit is an affordable option if you're looking to smooth your figure and add tummy control. It's made from 80% nylon and 20% spandex, which perfectly balances the stretch and compression. So what makes shoppers rave about this pick? Most reviewers compare the smoothing effects to those of Skims bodysuits. Yes, it's that good.

The shapewear smooths your midsection and lifts your bust without giving a tight, compressed feeling. Instead, it hugs your body in all the right places, adding a seamless shape. The bodysuit is also lined and even comes in a thong design. It also has adjustable straps that fit all cup sizes, and the shorts versions add additional shaping to the thigh and booty areas. What's not to love?

What reviewers say

Over 18,000 five-star reviewers give the tummy-control bodysuit their stamp of approval.

“I actually love this shapewear!” one shopper wrote. “Don’t have extremely high expectations that it’s going to transform you into looking like you just left Dr. Miami's office, but it definitely smooths, hugs and compresses you to accentuate your natural shape! Great tummy control, super comfortable and made me look great!"

Some compression bodysuits bunch up under your clothes, but not this one, as an "obsessed" customer attested: "It’s so comfy! It doesn’t ride up. I wore this on a night out and didn’t feel suctioned into it like I normally would with shapewear by the end of the night. I feel confident in my jeans again."

"Girl, when I tell you I’m shocked, I am!!!" said this convert. "I was so skeptical because I buy and buy shapewear, and it’s always disappointing, but girl, this one right here is the one, and even better, it is so comfortable!! I am definitely buying more!"

"I’m a Skims stan and normally don’t purchase dupes of Skims products because I rarely find something to be a true dupe. This, however, is gold," raved one fan. "I’ve worn it under tops where I wanted smoothing/slimming, and it’s great for that too. For this item in particular, definitely save your money on Skims and purchase this one."

One devotee noted that "The only *tiny* thing that I haven't 100% loved about it is that the bust line is a little high," but added in their five-star write-up, "The wonderful thing about this shaper is that it actually works how it should. It doesn't ride up or down, it doesn't bunch, it is breathable enough that I don't feel like I am dying, and it smooths everything out and provides protection from chub rub. The shorts are short enough for cocktail dresses, and it is easy enough to pull them shorter if need be and adjust the shaper accordingly."

So, what are you waiting for? Snap up this fan-favorite bodysuit at a serious discount while you still can.

Thanks to the adjustable straps, this shapewear can fit all bra sizes.
