“Maybe if you believe in miracles, maybe he’ll show up someday. Somewhere unexpected” – said Rizzo from Grease about Danny Zucko. Danny Zucko never turned up for me, but a miracle did in fact happen.
Psssst, ladies (cover your eyes boys), if you didn’t know about it by now, there is an internationally renowned undergarment secret of making you look at your most fabulous when you need it. They’re favoured by Bridget Jones and celebs alike, and they’re called control pants.
The plan is that you wiggle into your control pants of choice and the wonder fabric that they’re made from will smooth and flatten any bumps to leave you with a beautiful silhouette. Simply slip on your chosen dress and hope to feel like a million dollars.
These control pants can be pretty hit and miss, I’ve bought them before and been left less than impressed, and instead of a million dollars I’ve been left feeling like a crumpled fiver in the bottom of your bag. I received these from Miraclesuit and I never want to take them off. I wore these under my bridesmaid dress, which I absolutely loved (and am hoping for a perfect occasion to wear it again). The dress is duchess satin and from Coast, and its feminine, fabulous and… figure hugging…so I needed just a little bit of help to carry it off with complete confidence.
I was sent the Fuller Figure high waist thigh slimmer suit in flesh tone in a size 1XL (to fit a size 18). The suit looks much smaller than my actual dress size – but thats the beauty of it. Once you’ve wiggled and stretch and squeezed your way into it it sucks in any excess (I’m going to say it) flab to give a much smoother and tighter silhouette. The pants themselves cover the torso and sat comfortably under where my bra finished which meant the whole of my midriff was controlled. Although the dress fitted without the Miraclesuit, the overall affect once the suit and the dress were on was much more flattering.So much so that when I wiggled out of the bathroom, the bride herself exclaimed to how good it made my backside look, and took the accompanying picture.
Baby got back.
You can buy this particular suit from Figleaves for £37.50 – which I think is an absolute bargain in comparison to other brands shapewear of lesser quality and less control. Can I live in this please?
