Here’s a quick look at some of the best new lingerie and shapewear to spice up our lingerie drawers this Autumn / Winter:
Control slips help to give us a sleek silhouette but not all of us have one. However, once you’ve worn one once and experienced how amazing it’s made you feel, you’ll be hooked. They help dresses and skirts hang better and keep everything in the right place and they’re so comfortable you’ll want to sleep in them. You may even secretly want to go out in the new season control slips since they’re so pretty and detailed they’re like a dress themselves. Comfort and beauty do go hand in hand.
For example, the Figleaves Curve Imperial embroidered firm control multiway slip can be worn with strapless dresses, halternecks, high necklines or plunging necklines to support your curves and make you feel confident that you’ll look fantastic in whatever you wear.
