According to prnewswire.com, Fashion retailer Debenhams has launched a new collection over underwear which could eradicate muffin tops and visible panty lines.
A recent customer survey showed that the most common problems in women’s clothing are muffin tops, visible panty lines and bras where the cup size is too small, causing women to look like they have four breasts.
Two of these problems could be solved after the launch of ‘invisible’ high-tech knickers. When a tight dress is worn, the new underwear creates no apparent muffin top. The only previous option in getting this smooth look with a dress was to go commando.
Celebrities including Britney Spears and the members of Girls Aloud have been sent the new knickers to allow them to wear a silky black dress and look fabulous. Women will now be able to wear clothes that fit exactly how the designer intended.
Head of lingerie buying at Debenhams, Annette Warburton, said:”State of the art technology has become an essential ingredient into a sterling pair of knickers. No longer will the outline of the dress be ruined by unsightly knicker lines and bulges.”

The notion of having a large bust will seem like a dream for many women, but in fact it can cause a lot of physical and psychological problems for those who have them. They may gain a lot of unwanted attention from the opposite sex, and can also have a severe effect on the body, causing back problems, amongst others. Unless you are opting for cosmetic surgery, there are not many ways of making them smaller, but there are options to make them appear smaller than they are.
Firstly, you should make sure you wear a bra which fits properly. There are many ladies who wear ill-fitting bras, and for bigger busts, it can cause them to look even bigger. Most ladies clothing shops will offer bra fitting services, so you should go and get measured to ensure you are wearing the correct size. This will also help your bust to be supported, which is particularly important for those who are heavier on top. There are also options of minimiser bras, which help to create the appearance of a smaller bust.
To draw attention away from the bust, it is important not to wear clothes which are too tight, as these will only accentuate this area. Subsequently, it is also better to avoid clothing which is too baggy, as this will also make the area look larger. Always try tops on before buying them, to make sure you are wearing the correct size. The layering of clothing can also help, as a means of ‘strapping’ down the bust area, and giving it a smaller appearance.
When choosing styles of tops and jumpers, it is better to avoid high necks or turtle necks, which will draw attention to the area. Low scoop and deep v-neck styles are very flattering for bigger busts, and are styles to look out for in dresses too. If you still feel like you want some additional help in reducing your bust size, then a camisole top worn under your v-neck will help to achieve this. It is also best to stay clear of strapless tops and dresses, as they will cause attention to be focused on this area
With large busts, it is also better to avoid patterns and colours which will draw attention to the area. Keep your top half relatively plain, and wear patterns and brighter colours on your bottom half, as this will keep attention to this area. Dark colours, particularly black, worn on top will slim this area down, and give the appearance of a smaller bust. If you choose to wear stripes, then make sure they are vertical and not horizontal. Horizontal stripes will make any area looker bigger. If you wear a blouse, then opt for one which sits quite tight at the waist, but looser at the bust. When choosing a dress, you should be aware that empire line and wrap style dresses are the best options to flatter bigger busts.
To finish of your look, wear jewellery which doesn’t hang too long, as this will draw attention to the bust area.
Choosing the right underwear to go under your party dress is such an important part that many people forget. Wearing the wrong underwear can be a very embarrassing mistake. If it means you have to go out and buy an alternative bra and knickers then do so, you want to feel great. But whatever you do, always make sure that you pick the correct fit and style over fashion.
The Right Fit
Make sure you get yourself measured, so that your bra will fit perfectly and not be too big or too tight, this will only alter the shape of you silhouette.
Most people know that it makes sense to wear a white bra under a white dress or a black bra under a black dress. So make sure that you do too, otherwise there will be a strange looking shadow under your white, silky dress if you forget to put some white underwear on. Also, if you think itâ??s ok to wear pale underwear under a black dress, just because you canâ??t see it, then youâ??re wrong. When having pictures taken the flash from the camera will automatically pick up the paler colour under your dress.
Â The Style of your Bra
The style of your bra will vary depending on the style of the dress you wear. Nowadays you can buy one bra that can be worn in many different ways including; halter neck, strapless and kiss cross.
If you are going to be wearing a strapless dress, then it is essential that you have a strapless bra to go with it and make sure that you have enough support. If you are looking at wearing a one shoulder dress, then you can either opt for a strapless bra or even a bra where you have just one strap, this will give you extra support. If you choose to wear a dress with really thin straps, then itâ??s recommended that you purchase a bra with clear straps, this will make sure that you donâ??t see your bra strap under your dress. If you are unable to get a clear strap bra, try to get a bra the exact colour of your dress â?? this will make it a lot less obvious.
There are also bras out there that come in the style of a corset, which give you the support whilst also having a wider strap which comes lower down your back. This will allow you to wear a dress with a scooped back, and still have the support you need.
Knickers â?? more is better
When we say more is better, we mean that if you are wearing a tighter fitting dress then opt for bigger style knickers. Likewise, if your dress is silky and fairly thin then wear knickers that will cover you up.
The Style of your Knickers
People often stand and stare looking at their mirror and can see a line of where their knickers are. If you want to avoid this, then invest in a pair of seamless style knickers, Sloggi women’s underwear is a good option. They are thin and silky and come in various colours and are perfect for wearing under dresses. They have no seams, which will give you the smooth effect. Â Shape wear is also a great way to guarentee a smooth silhouette. You could try the very popular Trinny and Susannah shapewear.
Plus sized ladies want to look and feel elegant in what they wear, whilst drawing attention to their best assets. Donâ??t feel that you canâ??t wear that Little Black Dress to a party because it has no sleeves; feel confident in what you wear.
Accentuate your assets
To make the most of your best assets, mix and match a little. You could wear a polka skirt with a plain black top which would draw the attention away from the bust line, similarly a polka dot top with a plain black skirt to take the eye away from perhaps larger hips. The darker colour on the bottom of this black ivory animal rose print top (pictured above)Â is also great for slimmimg the hips.
The Ideal Fit
Try not to look at the style of clothes, but focus on its fit. A better fitting top will flatter your shape, rather than you trying to squeeze into a smaller size.
Avoid baggy clothes at all cost
Try to stay away from baggy clothes, they only alter your shape and make you look wider in the places where you are actually a perfect size.
Donâ??t feel that you have to wear darker colours constantly to make you feel smaller. Clothe your best assets with a brighter colour. Or try accessorizing with different coloured shoes to take the feeling away from the â??all black look.â??
Go for soft fabrics that are figure hugging, but allow you to move in a free manner. Clingy, stretchy material will only make you feel larger as it will cling to unnecessary parts of your body.
Try to remember that different shops have different manufacturers, so their sizes will differ considerably. Donâ??t worry if your size varies from one shop to the next.
The Perfect Dress
If you are looking for a dress for that perfect night out or party, then look at getting a one-piece dress, they give the appearance of looking sleeker than say a camisole with a long length skirt.
It is commonly known that a round necked top makes your bust look larger. If you want to make this area look smaller, then go for V-Neck styled tops which use the vertical line and take your eye away from the bust area.
Wearing a camisole top underneath a shirt or blouse will smooth out any bulges which you donâ??t like seeing.
Whilst most people find body slimmers not very flattering, they too help to smooth out any unwanted bulges.
Sleeveless or not?
Donâ??t be worried about wearing a sleeveless top, showing just a little bit of skin can be very attractive on a lady, so donâ??t dismiss the thought of wearing a sleeveless dress out. If you are a little more conscious about it then why not have a short bolero jacket or shrug over the top, to cover up that tiny bit of skin.
