We all have that special outfit we wear when we want to feel sexy, whether it's on a hot date or night out with the girls. For myself in particular I like to wear body hugging dresses that compliment my derriere and waist. In particular, those great form-fitting nylon American Apparel dresses, you know which ones I'm talking about! However, that sometimes makes choosing the right underwear to wear a little difficult.
You think, okay maybe a thong will do, but on many occassions you can still see the straps on the side through the dress and in some cases I dislike how, while a thong may look sexy in the bedroom, they don't do anything to lift my booty underneath the dress. Forget about Spanx or any type of undergarment that is made to suck you in as they are usually quite thick or at least thick enough to be seen underneath a tight little number. So you think, all right I'll go commando. But again, at times unless you have a really toned athletic butt the dress may not provide enough "lift" as you'd like. And even if you DO have an athletic rump, you don't want a Paris/Lindsay/Britney situation going on.
Well, I have finally found the solution to this problem ladies!!
For those of you who don't already know, Lululemon Athletica makes these wonderful pants made with their signature Luon material that are super comfortable and give the illusion of a fitter behind. Well these panties are just as comfortable, smooth and flattering. The material is so flat/thin but not in a cheap way, so that they practically look and feel like you're wearing another layer of skin especially because they are seamless.
When I first saw a pair worn on the mannequin, I thought "Wow, those look really thin" (in a good way). So I bought a pair and put them in the wash of course. Then afterwards I immediately put them to the test! I pulled out one of my tightest American Apparel dresses that I often resort to going commando in (with thiiiin stockings over) and voila!
Just as I'd suspected. Not a hint of a panty line whatsoever! But of course you have to get the right size, because if you wear panties that are too small, regardless of how thin/fitted they are you're going to be able to tell because you'll see love handles etc. But it was amazing. Like I said it was like wearing a very comfortable second layer of skin.
These panties come in a few different colours, black, turquoise, magenta, pink, baby blue- so that is quite limited. So I feel the black ones will do for any occassion if you plan on taking your dress off for your man (or stranger...) later in the night ;). They come in 3 sizes: S, M and L. I'm a girl who has booty, and I got the medium and it fits just fine. No love handles! Which is sometimes a problem for me. But these panties are also quite stretchable, so that's always a plus.
My only problem with these are for girls with bigger booties, the back may not be enough coverage for your er, cheeks. I can imagine for some ladies you'd be better off just buying the Lululemon thongs, which come in the same material. But like I said, usually with thongs you can still see the straps on the side or SOMETHING.
So yep. I definitely recommend these panties. They're called the "Smooth Move Girlshorts" and are currently on sale for CAD$18.00! I personally feel they're worth it, despite the lack of coverage in the back. But if you have a small, cute butt it definitely will not be a problem. I just have more ass then most girls lol.
These will be great for those tight dresses, or even tight pants if you want to avoid that pesky panty line and accentuated love handles. I'm pretty sure these were originally made to be worn with yoga/exercise pants so it works well with that as well, because there is nothing more unflattering when you're working out and you can see a girl's cameltoe or that her butt is very obviously squished by those panties.
So yes! Lululemon Smooth Moves Girlshorts, guys! Go get them today :). If you have a Lululemon Athletica store near you, definitely go check it out. Clearly you can't try these on because that's just a little unhygenic, so if you don't have a Lululemon store near you you can order them online. As I've mentioned before I have quite the booty, normally underwear wise mediums may be too small or cause unflattering lines on my butt but the mediums for this style fit very well on me.
Hopefully this blog helps you ladies avoid and relieve yourselves of a wardrobe malfunction!
Let me know if you've tried these, and what you think!
