Well, the fashion team at Cosmo certainly know what they’re talking about. Which I guess is what you would expect, them being experts in their field, but too many times we follow the advice of mags and end up looking as though we dressed ourselves in the dark. In a charity shop. (One geared towards the elderly generation).
Not this time, though, as Cosmo have recommended the Mary Portas & Charnos “Tights of Wonder” control tights range (supplied by MyTights.com, naturally). The three styles available – sheer, spotty and chain patterned “Scroll” tights have all got superb inbuilt control.
The boxer brief is where all the magic happens. A series of knitted-in control bands pull in the tummy, flattening and smoothing your stomach, hips and thighs. Plus, another band sits just under your bottom to provide a little lift – the tights are shaped to accentuate the curve of your rear without flattening it.
Cosmo recommends the Spotty Style, where as well as an all over figure fixer, you can show off your pins in a classic, ultra-chic design that’ll make you look like a sexy 40s screen siren. The plain sheer version are perfect for the office or for under formal dresses, while the Scroll pattern is a touch funkier and works well for a fun, striking weekend look.
Cosmo calls them “wonders to add a little lift to your day” and a “body miracle”. The maker calls them “an instant red carpet figure for real British Women”. We call them “the ultimate in can’t-live-without accessories.” And we’ve
no doubt that after trying them, you’ll be calling them “my new best friend”.
