We all love the looks of the red carpet – long, lean, lithe bodies walking in thousands of dollars of couture hand-sewn by tiny women in couture houses in Europe. But if you ask any stylist or designer, they will tell you that no matter how thin these women are, nothing causes clean lines like shapewear. It’s like construction: the right foundation is key to building anything.
My new recent discovery has been the awe-inspiring power of Donna Karan The Body Perfect Shapewear. Of course, the woman who has spent an entire career creating clothing to hide a woman’s flaws and enhance her feminine shape would come up with mind-blowing shapewear that smooths and holds you in without feeling uncomfortable. They come in nude and black (please note: flash photography WILL reveal your little secret – judge accordingly and test ahead of time) and in different shapes for different needs (capri pants, high-waist embrace brief.) Under pants, an evening gown, a cocktail dress, knitwear – whenever you need to ensure long, lean lines (which is almost always, let’s be honest here), this shapewear will get the job done.
Wedding season, cocktail parties, date night – there are a LOT of occasions coming up where this product will be needed. Get them all and rotate them often – they WORK.
