7 Underwear Mistakes You Don't Know You're Making
Recover from all your under-the-surface woes with this lesson in bras, panties and shapewear
Translation: Don't be afraid to go a size up. It doesn't mean you've gained weight or need to panic -- it simply means that brand's sizing system is different.
If you want to eliminate any hint of muffin top while wearing something very fitted, celebrity stylist James Cornwell recommends investing in a pair of Spanx Power Panties.
"They really contour the love handles, while controlling the tummy and thighs at the same time," says the stylist, whose client list includes the likes of Jessica Alba and Patricia Arquette. On that note, Cornwell also cautions against buying a too-tight pair of Spanx. "I think people tend to make that mistake because they think they really need to squeeze in the love handles, squeeze in the tummy, but that's not going to work. You're not going to get a better shape." The moral of the story? Smaller underwear does not equal better underwear.
