Festive occasions call for glamour, which generally means showing more skin. Keep it classy & keep from flashing fellow partygoers - along with back fat, muffin top, or even excessively draggy hems - with these handy solutions to the well dressed partier's typical dilemmas.
Cleavage Control Instead of trying to conceal with a clunky safety pin, try a clever Bosom Button which is made to be seen. Handcrafted with Swarovski crystals, it controls gaping stylishly. Alternatively, the Winkee is a clever insert that attaches to your bra for the look of a less-is-more cami, but without the additional bulk.
Banish Back Fat Unsightly bulges and muffin top...so not chic. The Unbelievabra is an all-in-one cami/tank with a molded foam cup bra that shapes, supports, smoothes and slims - both front and back - and also takes care of visible bra lines.
Find a Bra that Fits Tim Gunn recommends Bra Smyth, and if it's good enough for Tim, count us in.
No Hem Drag Wish you could wear your fave pants with the season's chic flats, but don't want to shorten them permanently? Zakkers pant roll-ups let you hem your pants for heels, but rock them with flats.
Pants that Stay Put If a belt isn't an option, try this sneaky solution: under your ensemble clip your pants to your bra with bottomsUp stretchy fabric bands. GetBottomsUp.com
