White Undies 728x9211

Want to Elongate Your Legs?

Try: Invisible boy shorts

It?s counterintuitive, but a super-silky boy short makes your hips just blend right into your leg. And new ultra-thin fabrics mean there?s no dreaded VPL (visible panty line).

Want to Firm Up a Jiggly Butt?

Try: Control top shorts

In the old days, this would be a girdle. And you?d have to wait all day for proper blood circulation. But today?s lighter-weight control shorts give you just the light hold you want. Plus, they look cute peeking out from under skirts.

Want to Flatter Your Long Waist?

Try: Low-waisted briefs

The issue here is that when you sit down, shirts hike up and expose your midsection. Which as often as not, shows your trouser/jeans top riding down and exposing the top of your undies. But low-waisted designs are our secret weapon in the battle to keep our underwear private.

Want to End Muffin Top Once and For All?

Try: A torso shaper

Nobody wants to spill over the top of their jeans. To forever change the look of your mid-section, try a torso shaper under your favorite denim (hide it beneath a cami) or clingy dress. It?s a game changer.

Need to Cover Your Butt?

Want to Flatten Your Tummy?

Try: High-waisted briefs

Have you always been grateful for granny panties, because coverage? Well, high-waisted briefs, as they’re known in the trade, have gotten prettier and smoother than in your gran’s day--but they still hide that second trip to the buffet like a champ.
