Thanks to commercials, magazines and runways increasingly featuring plus size models, as celebrities from Oprah Winfrey to Michelle Obama and Kim Kardashian simultaneously fess up to their secret Spanx addictions, we can officially celebrate that curves are in Vogue. And Cette’s new range of plus size hosiery is the prime example of why we’re celebrating as much as we are.
Fantastic quality, comfortable and affordable plus size hosiery – of course we’re celebrating! But wait for the real X Factor of the leading Belgian brand’s new luxury leg wear line, the crack-open-the-champagne-we’re-celebrating-factor: the fact that these tights are sexy.
Yep you heard right ladies. Cette’s new range of plus size hosiery is comfortable and sexy. Browse the full collection in a minute but right now have a little lust after these Cette Paris Plus Size Hold Ups. A subtle shine and a lot of lace scream sex appeal a lot more than a pair of suck-it-all-in-Spanx. While hold ups were previously the domain of salad eating stick insects, in creating a product this sexy and properly fitting for the fuller figured women, Cette are revolutionising the hosiery market for plus size women.
Ask yourself how often you’ve sacrificed comfort to squeeze your way into another pair of Spanx. I’m going to hazard a guess you don’t have enough hands to count on. The result may be that hourglass figure aka Joan Holloway from Mad Men that yes, is sexy for passers by who get to look at you. But do you feel sexy?
There’s a time and a place for Spanx, for instance when you want your curves to accommodate the dress of your dreams. But day to day, let’s not girdle ourselves ladies; I’m sure Joan would be a lot less stressed in the job if she could breathe. Let’s look and feel truly sexy aka Marilyn Monroe with the wind blowing up our dress as we wear a pair of fabulous and properly fitting lacy hold up stockings rather than always resorting to the Adele method aka layering four pairs of Spanx for the “correct” silhouette. A little less of the Bridget Jones-esque scenarios where our embarrassing knickers are uncovered at the end of a night and a touch more of the tantalizing that accompanies fancy, fitted lingerie will do very nicely, thanks Cette!
