SHAPEWEAR SECRETS

With summer ahead and a wardrobe of occasionwear to consider, finding the right lingerie is a must. Enter smoothing slips, fix-it bras and body shapers, says Maggie Davis.

SLEEK SLIPS: THE FAST ROUTE TO A SMOOTH SILHOUETTE.

Sometimes a look requires that extra bit of consideration. For a super-sleek silhouette, wear a slimming slip over your bra and knickers. This classic undergarment once favoured by Elizabeth Taylor (below centre), will prevent your outfit clinging in all the wrong places, plus it will work under this season’s figure-skimming frocks.
