Francesca is of two minds when it comes to recommending “foundation undergarments” which “smooth and flatten” one’s lumpier parts.
On one hand, Manolo, Plumcake and I wish to communicate our feelings that women of all sizes and shapes can successfully aspire to look and feel superfantastic. One’s Bigger parts need not induce shame; on the contrary, we wish you to celebrate your body and all its components!
On the other hand, Francesca knows that there are occasions on which one wishes to use a little something to “smooth” certain areas. For some, it is the hips. For others, it is the tummy. There are women who wear minimizer bras and women who wear control top pantyhose. And Francesca says: if it makes you feel better about wearing your Little Black Dress, then go for it.
(Yes, Francesca herself owns a pair of < Hi Rise Spanx. They do not make Francesca littler — and she does not need to be littler to look and feel gorgeous — but they do smooth the lumpy lines and make the LBD hang a little more sleekly.)
It is with this introduction that Francesa, with a bit of hesitation, informs you that a company called Jax & Jewels has introduced a new product which acts as a minimizer for the upper arms. The unfortunate name for the product is Flabuless, but Francesca can see how it would be useful for many; she is considering trying it herself to see how it works, and how well.
She does not understand how it helps one to wear sleeveless clothing — surely, it would be obvious to others that one is wearing something on one’s arms — but perhaps with the flutter sleeves? the cap sleeves? the top with the extremely tight sleeves?
If any of our dear readers do try this product, please let us know how it performs.
