There is a corset comeback happening out there and I for one am grateful.
Embarrassing; yes very.
It’s not something I want to admit, needing a little streamlining, but there comes a day.
In my perfect world I would be clad in the lacy and skimpy, I would look like a young Brigitte Bardot and I would be frolicking with the beautiful and handsome in Saint Tropez.
Back to reality.
As time rolls on I realise I need a little support. Not structural, not emotional, not physical but more like a little streamlining. Shaving off the pounds around the edges, a little smoothing out of a bump or two. Do you get the picture?
Here is the truth,
I am not being lazy, I am going to the gym regularly, reducing carbs and I am avoiding that pesky little friend called sugar; I still need help. If we can rely on sophisticated cosmetics to enhance our appearance then why not take advantage of lingerie developments.
These control garments really work to make you look slimmer and even if you are the perfect shape and size they enhance your body and allow clothing to fall better. Lines are eliminated and it’s smooth sailing all the way.
Let me say, the corset is back.
My mother would tell you the corset never went out. I do remember so vividly thinking her choice of underwear very strange; my youth and naievety had me imagining that the body would stay in it’s rightful place and shape forever. She has the last laugh.
The best news is that “structural” underwear is now so much more functional, more comfortable and a great deal prettier. Yes, we can look smooth, eliminate unwanted bulges and breathe at the same time. No Scarlett O’Hara type dramas in the search for a streamlined figure.
So the big question; is this corset comeback, attractive, sexy?
When wearing these miracle pieces, does it mean a dash to the bedroom, lights out and a quick change?
Absolutely not, control underwear can be mighty pretty.
Know what I mean? xv
