Body contouring

Kathryn Whittaker explains how to ditch the diet and lose inches

Published on November 2nd 2007.


Body contouring

Right ladies, the countdown is on and scarily, you only have 4 weeks until the Christmas party season begins.

Two words for you - DON’T PANIC. Gone are the days of being nil by mouth in an attempt to squeeze into this season’s hottest little black dress- let it all go and try some style savvy secrets instead. Its time to say yes to that extra slice of chocolate cake and reach for the mid morning crisps as I show you the best that the high street has to offer in this winter’s contour collections.

Contour what? I hear you cry, well, in a nutshell we’re talking big knickers, no, not just big- HUGE! But believe me, once you pop you can’t stop with these babies, as they really are your secret weapons to a sexy silhouette minus the lettuce leaves.

This year things have really moved on in the control stakes and they may not be the prettiest of garments but as I always say there are frillies to prance around in and bolder holders to wear under things but which contraption is right for you?

Thunder Thighs
It’s a fact that 75% of British women are Pear shaped (Wider thighs than shoulders). The great news is that this is what Big Knickers were made for and these fab magic firm control thigh slimmers, £20 from M&S are just the thing to skim those curves. Top tip: get them in a skin-toned colour, they may not look pretty but they will be invisible under any fabric.

Get Waisted
If your middle is straight up straight down and you crave a weenie waist and a curvaceous figure, then this is the baby for you. The miraclesuit waist cincher is perfect. Its control panels nip the waist in and skim the tummy with a promise to take inches off your middle- snap yours up at www.figleave.com for just £23.

Tina The Talking Tummy
If your tummy is taking on a whole persona of its own and you can pinch the rolls together to make it talk (hence the Tina title) then I could just have changed your life. If your middle is rounder and the thought of an evening dress makes you dread the muffin top - nice then try this Flexees all in one body from Debenhams. For just £31 you will have a smooth silhouette to rival any gym bunny and the detachable straps make it perfect for any neckline.

Blitz the lot
I know what you’re thinking - what if I have it all - well, yes as your style saint I really can solve the lot. The secret? It ‘aint pretty but believe me, your dress will have never looked so good (just remember a change of undies if you are on the pull). These are the crème de la crème of contour pants- the SPANX. All the celebs are pulling them on from Girls Aloud, to Gwen Stefani, so buy yours now from John Lewis at just £26

So you really can have your cake and eat it girls. Next week- bras to conquer even the trickiest of necklines. Kathryn Kathryn WhittakerDirector Code Image and Style Ltd Book your very stylish Christmas gift experiences NOW – visit our website www.codeimage.co.uk or call us on 0845 873 7001.
