Modern day shapewear vs. vintage shapewear. Which is better?

I recently came across this article on Racked: Modern-Day Shapewear Sucks, but Vintage Shapewear Rules. After spending the day in shapewear, the writers there discover their colleague has had a fantastic experience with vintage shapewear : « these items were designed to take in the shape of the woman wearing it and accentuate her best feature.
