We’ve suddenly (and finally) been transported into the wonderful optimism of spring and everything spring like. I’ve enthusiastically shed all my associations with winter, discarding the puffy coat, snow boots and all those chunky layers that have been weighing me down. Now those summery window displays are beginning to look pretty good. What girl can resist dreaming about those lovely summer styles that are arriving in the stores ?
Well with that in mind I recommend a spring revision of your undies drawers. What better way to start the season ? All those heavy winter clothes disguised all our lumps and bumps; we could cover them up with long cardigans and sweaters but now there’s no avoiding it. We all want to eliminate those unsightly ‘Visible Panty Lines’ or ‘VPL’s’, but it’s also lovely to invest in some super lightweight panties that will complement our summer wardrobes.
The most important thing to look for are panty styles with little or no elastic around the legs – they should have clean, unfinished edges or perhaps a fine bonded elastic – but again this should be very light and unhemmed. There must be no grip in the legs to cause unsightly cheek bulges and the leg opening should sit flat against your skin, snug but not tight. Seam-free means that you won’t see the characteristic wiggly seam line running up your hips or belly (especially worth avoiding if you’re slipping into anything fitted).
The Seek Simplicity Microfiber Low Rise Hipster by our very own Bra Doctor is a perfect seam-free panty, wildly comfortable and made from a fine, very elastic microfiber fabric which has the advantage of being breathable like a second skin, keeping you cool and fresh even in the summer heat. If you prefer natural fibers for everyday wear it also comes in a superfine cotton version, The Light Luxury Low Rise Hipster.
One of the big trends this spring is the ’70’s’ high waist, wide leg trouser, which is incredibly flattering – nipping in your waist and lengthening the leg, especially when worn with heels. But you need to carefully select your undies to avoid a full on fashion disaster.
For special occasions The Vintage Lace Control Panty by Grenier has a fashionable retro look being high waisted and cut low on the leg. Made from an innovative engineered lace fabric, it provides an amazingly effective tummy control, and with flat finished pretty scalloped leg edges, a smooth and bulge free behind.
For a more everyday remedy try The Elita Invisibles Low Rise Hipster Panty. It has minimal rear coverage for a super sexy derriere and is made from soft, sweat absorbent microfiber fabric, perfect for when the temperatures soar. The top edge perfectly grazes your hip bones avoiding that upper hip ‘bulge prone’ area and the leg openings are clean and ‘roll free’, it’s like wearing absolutely nothing!
Well have fun in the sunshine and treat yourself to something special,
