|Left bum? or Right bum?|
Look carefully at the above bums.
Same woman, same day, same time, same outerwear, no styling tricks.
Which bum do you prefer, assuming you had to pick one?
I hope you said Right bum!
It has smoother lines due to invisible underwear.
Left bum has all the imprints of the knickers underneath and the knickers are grabbing her flesh making it look like a sausage.
& so here is the start of this post.......
oh dear, besties...or this?
Even famous (stylish) people occasionally fall guilty of this crime....
So how do we find invisible knickers?
Lucky for us the manufacturers have caught onto this consumer need & most have at least one version of invisible knickers available in their range.
What you need to looks for is a no hem, no elastic, no stitching around the leg, not even overlocking, no matter how tiny it is.
Notice though this Bonds version has a side seam - if your clothing is fine and a light colour (eg: silk dress), you may show a small bump on the side from the side seam......they also have the Bonds elastic on the top - the seams attaching this can be visible depending on the outfit......food for thought.....
Avoid at all costs:
Anything like these.....
|You may think the leg elastic is subtle, but the VPL takes no prisoners. Stay away form these babies if you want to avoid VPL.|
Definitely stay away from these.....the thick elastic reminds me of school cotton tail undies......
Stay away from these too - the elastic may look friendly - its not.
How about these?
Whilst they are designed to shape the bottom, the 1 cm inner band of similar fabric still acts as a sausage creator. A mild sausage creator, but a sausage creator nevertheless.
In any case, they are designed as a bottom shaper, not as an invisible knicker. My suggestion though is that these would work with jeans - due to the combination of thick outer fabric & mild sausage creation.
Finally - here are my personal favourites - laser cut legs, laser cut top, no elastic, no overlocking, no edge stitching....ta-da....
From Target - the "Invisiblebody" range.....
They also have no side seams - only the back seam. Since you back curves inwards, it is unlikely that the seam will ever be visible.
Sized 8 - 18
Colours include white, light nude (shown), dark nude, black.
Styles include full brief (shown), bikini, boyleg.
They last for ages & there is never the problem of elastic disintegrating or stretching out.
If you have time, go to any discount store or department store & look at all the invisible knickers - just to get a feel for what's out there. After doing that, I came back to Tar-jay - they may not be a fancy brand, but their value for money is terrific.
We all have "blah" knickers for that time of month or when we simply run out of our other knickers. Well invisible knickers can be worn on "blah" days too.
Get rid of all your "blahs" and replace them with invisibles.
So you'll never have the problem of your invisibles being in the dirty laundry basket when you need them - because even the knickers in your ready to wear drawer will be invisible!
You're forcing yourself to have the right knickers on hand, because after all, even the best intentions of doing the washing on time dont get executed sometimes.
PS: Go back to the very first photo....look even closer....even the right bum has mild VPL on the lady's right bum cheek....I am sure you picked that up though & now know to avoid that look.
