A Good Foundation
My clients have all heard me talk about the importance of wearing good underwear. But by that I don't fancy or expensive, but simply the RIGHT underwear. Looking great in our clothing starts with a good foundation underneath. As our bodies change and age, shapewear can help smooth things out a bit and give us a sleeker silhouette under our clothing. Here are my top three ways to incorporate shapewear into your wardrobe:
1/ Ladies, f you're wearing a clingy knit dress, PLEASE ditch the thong. It creates a distraction and really does show every line, lump and bump (no matter your size). Instead, reach for a pair of Power Panties ($26) (they do breathe) and say good-bye to bumps. Added benefit - aside from a smoother look, you'll also create a slimming silhouette, instantly shaving off pounds from your body.
2/ Under trousers try this Shaping Brief ($14.40) to eliminate VPL. They're comfy, stay put and keep you looking sleek and smooth. Because panty lines are just not attractive.
3/ Got Backfat? We all have a little and it's just not fair. But wear a Sassybax Torso Trim ($75) under your most clingy tops and dresses and you'll wonder "where's the backfat?"
Because shapewear is an integral part of every good wardrobe we're giving away a gift certificate for $30 to Freshpair.com to use on the shapewear or lingerie of your choice. To enter, just leave a comment and tell me what item of shapewear you'd choose, along with your email. Deadline is Tuesday, October 6, 2009.
