This morning The New York Times published a brief Fashion Week wrap-up, noting the prevalence of bizarre high-waisted underwear (they looked a bit like control-top Spanx). At the shows for the spring collections of Donna Karan, Brian Reyes, Marc Jacobs, and many more, twiggy models were sent down the runways in their skivvies. We’re all for fun, body-contouring clothing, but come on, guys, how hard do you have to make it for us to keep up with high fashion? We sincerely hope this isn’t a sign that diapers paired with heels will be in style come spring.
Although we’re not quite down with the new designs, we definitely appreciate our Spanx (when covered by clothing, that is). For your fall hosiery needs, flatten your tummy and thighs with a pair of Spanx tights ($26) or for a leaner look in that cute cocktail dress, try these power panties ($36).
