The Right (Under) Stuff

Yummie Tummies slims you down

I know I don’t think about it too often, but recently I’ve been more aware of my underwear. This is not because I will be showing it more but because it seems to be visible. You know the old visible panty line thing. I put off laundry day since things have been so crazy lately and had to wear a pair of panties that I just didn’t like or feel comfortable wearing. Turns out it was more than comfort at stake.


Underwear or what we wear under our clothing starts to move further and further from our consciousness the older we get, we start taking it for granted. This isn’t a good idea because we need more support and smoothing as we age. It is the rare woman who can put on a body skimming dress without some form of body wear. Okay, so maybe Jane Fonda looks awesome at 75 in a tight evening gown, but the rest of us need more help.

While body shapers or body wear can be expensive it is worth the investment. No matter what your size or shape, you can always benefit from looking smoother. The right undergarments will make you look taller, slimmer and smoother in anything you put on over it. This is an unfortunate truth, how you look in a garment is really dependent on what you are wearing underneath. An old bra without support will only be emphasized once you put on that top or dress.


I unfortunately see this problem quite frequently; ill-fitting undergarments that make clothing look odd. I experienced it myself just this week and I vow to be more conscious of this from now on. I don’t think I’m going to go nuts and go out and buy all new underwear, but it does have a lifespan and maybe it’s time to think about replacing a few pairs at a time. After all, I do want to look my best and that usually starts with what is underneath.
Thank goodness this is no longer fashionable
