Countdown to Christmas – Advent Calendar Day 16

Some weeks ago I was asked to enjoy a morning of pampering and beautifying in Chelsea, courtesy of iconic shapewear and lingerie label Maidenform. If you are a regular reader of this blog, you might have realised that I am a sucker for a bit of pampering and that I live in the aforementioned neighbourhood. Add to that my love for lingerie and my growing interest in all things gravity defying (isn’t getting older fun?) and voila – Maidenform, here I came!

Apart from getting my nails painted in a beautifully festive red, I also tried on different items from the Maidenform Flexees® range, invited to take one of the gorgeous pieces home. My choice fell on the Easy-Up® body shaper – a silky smooth little one-piece that should soon become my new best friend.

The body briefer promises to make the best of every body, and in my case it has held its promise. Removable straps and a lower back design make the body briefer the perfect partner in crime for wearing strapless dresses or tops. Worn with low-cut jeans, its firm control waist has saved me from dreaded muffin top moments – no matter how often I bended over for shoe lace tying or nose wiping.

Forget Bridget Jones’ leberwurst coloured granny pants. The Maidenform body shaper is part of a new era of luxe shapewear that looks and feels like lingerie. It will make you feel a million dollars, no doubt about it.

Available at House of Fraser for £44.

And the Maidenform body shaper goes to: SaraLouise. Congratulations! Please email me and I will pass on your details.

As for tomorrow – another iconic British brand, another beauty product I cannot live without…

Leave a comment below to be in the draw for the 17th day of the Advent Calendar.
