Sexy they are not. But slinky? Oh yes. These are Spanx, you see: the lingerie of choice of many a blushing bride who’d rather be blushing with joy on her wedding day than blushing in shame because her dress is just slightly too tight to be comfortable. These are the ultimate in control pants – and as you can see, they extend right down to your thighs and up to your bust if you need them to. They come in all shapes and sizes, and there’s even a slip version if you’re after something a little more feminine.
No, Spanx will never set your new husband’s heart on fire on your wedding night, but those in the know say they’re possibly the best thing to wear under a figure-hugging wedding dress. And you can always slip into something a little more comfortable before bed. Anyone tried them?
