problem solving lingerie
Shapewear, sculptwear, and ‘problem-solving’ lingerie are all notoriously unpretty. Though the majority of pieces are not designed to be seen (ahem, cop out), the likelihood that they will be – all hoisted and nipped into Victoria’s Secret Fashion show perfection – is huge.

I found my new favourite piece of problem-solving lingerie in the treasure trove of the M&S website. Having a pretty large chest for my frame, I find any off the shoulder dress or top hard to wear. Since there is no pretty way to say it…strapless bras have a knack of slipping to my waist. Not a good look.

With this gorgeous piece, you get shapewear that supports a strapless bra (detachable straps) and stops it from shifting. Available up to a DD cup, the garment fastens at the gusset, is underwired, trimmed with lace, and creates a sleek silhouette all the way down to the invisible panty line.

I can comfortably bare shoulders for the first time since puberty. Can I get a “hell yes!”?
