Even though I'm naturally slim, I have succumbed to the deceptive miracle in the form of shapewear. As you can see above, it comes in every form from knickers to pantyhose to a body. In recent years it also seems to have become more fashionable as all the monthly glossy magazines now feature ads for Spanx etc.
But what happens when you need it for reasons not relating to vanity?
Well, I've come across this website AnnetteOnline which offers post-surgery compression garments. Perfect for the summer and holiday season, which is most popular for having surgical procedures. They also have compression garments for men at AnnetteOnline. So your boyfriend or husband has no reason to feel embarrassed!
I usually wear 'control pants' when wearing a tight or delicate dress for a night out just to be safe. This particular company has been around for 25 years, so they really know what they're doing. I would probably recommend this as they have lots of different ranges to choose from. Please note they don't ship internationally as of yet, but other online shops stock their products. Check out the above links and let me know your thoughts.
