Sheer Pants!

In advance of the 2014 Oscars ceremony and in honour of all the female Hollywood actresses that will be donning excessive pairs of Spanx at this year’s red carpet, I thought we should do a tribute to knickers.

I know I harp on and on about the importance of the correct underwear especially underneath evening wear but it’s also crucial to ensure your everyday undergarments come up to par as well.  For example wearing the wrong bra size or indeed shape can totally distort your bust under sweaters and t-shirts.  With the wrong cup size you risk giving yourself an extra boob or make the error of going for no underwire and your boobs could look like they are meeting at your waist!

The same goes for pants ladies and I’m talking about all styles – thongs, boy shorts, bikini, brazilian, French knicker, full brief …….. (who would’ve though there were so many types of bloody knickers!!!)  Wear them too small and you create dents at each side of your hip which then leads to that extra bit of let’s say …. “softness” being pushed up and that creates an unsightly bulge.  This ain’t pretty and also is extremely uncomfortable.

Remember most high street stores now offer either a low or high waisted option so be sensible!  If most of your trousers and jeans rest on your hip make sure you go for the low waisted pants, otherwise you’ll be showing your choice of underwear to everyone each time you bend over the trolley at the supermarket.  Otherwise known as the ‘Whale Tail’, here’s its actual definition according to Wikipedia ….

…….. Whale tail is the Y-shaped waistband of a thong or g-string when visible above the waistline of low-rise jeans, shorts, or a skirt that resembles a whale’s tail. Intentionally or unintentionally, a whale tail is exposed above the trousers mostly when sitting or bending, or even while standing. The frequency or occasion depends on the style of trousers, the style of underwear, and the way they are worn ……..

If you saw someone’s underwear showing in Tesco’s, would you tell them??????
