With Valentine’s Day coming up soon, perhaps your man could be in for a Bridget Jones style surprise – with control top panties.
It seems that the high waisted tummy flattening underwear could be trying to make a comeback as a fashion item. Rachel Bilson wore a pair with a pretty pink bra for a photoshoot with American GQ magazine, and Kim Cattrall wore a pair as bikini bottoms for a scene as Samantha Jones in the upcoming Sex and the City movie. Meanwhile former Victoria’s Secret Angel and French model/actress, Laetitia Casta, is on the cover of the February 2008 edition of French Elle wearing a cone shaped vintage style bra with high waisted panties.
Is this a coincidence, or could the body conscious trend be migrating into our lingerie draws soon? While it may look sexy (with a slight vintage/granny twist) on these three beautiful women, it should be interesting to see if it takes off on less toned bodies on beaches and in lingerie departments.
Would you wear them?
Perhaps Cosabella might make some control top Sex and the City branded lingerie now…
