So today I am taking a look at foundation underwear and bridalwear foundations with the help of industry leader, Spanx and their arsenal of slimming and smoothing products.

For those ladies who are looking to create a sleek waist line the ASSETS Fantastic Firmers High-Waist Mid-Thigh Shaper shapes the midriff  and provide extra support for the thigh and hip areas.  The floral embellished tulle mermaid gown below from Monique Lhullier fall 2012 collection has an elongated bodice which benefits from the shaped waistline.

  • As a fuller-figured woman I find that most of this control underwear rides up to the smallest part. Shorter-legged styles leave a fat bulge and anything apart from the full nude slip with arm straps, rolls down leaving a roll of fabric/elastic under the bust, which is infinitely more uncomfortable than just wearing normal underwear; actually creating more problems, lumps and bumps than it solves. Be interested to see the items modelled on people who actually need to wear them, rather than stick-thin models who don’t have a spare ounce of flesh!
    The best structured wedding dresses should have integral support built in. Less structured styles would benefit from some smoothing out to avoid hideous VPL etc.
