What Not To Wear

On the recommendation of a fashionista friend, I took at look at the "What Not to Wear" series on hulu.com. Each episode is less than 3 minutes long so it was easy to look at 3 or 4 of them and they offer great wardrobe pointers.

My friend had particularly mentioned a special episode on "Shapewear". Curious, I gave it a look. The hosts tastefully address various shapewear options displayed in ensembles on mannequins. I'll leave it to you to watch the video for the details.

What struck me really, was the incredible repackaging of these things that look like running tops and bike shorts just slimmed down a bit that function like a corset or girdle but using 21st century materials. No whale bone, just spandex.
