My fondness for Bristols 6 Nippies is already well-established, so in honor of (being single on) Valentine’s Day, I thought I’d take the sort-of-crazy metallic red patterned ones on a test drive on the outside world.
So I wore this clingy one-shouldered dress ($210) out last weekend – and thank goodness I had a pair of ‘All The Way Up’ SPANX ($28) and a selection of Nippies ($15 for 2 pairs) on hand, because without the proper underpinnings, it’s a sort of terrifying garment.
But thanks to the seamless, stay-in-place Nippies, there was zero tugging at the top of the dress and no adjusting a slipping strapless bra. Plus, there's something fun about knowing you're wearing printed pasties under your outfit. And my darling dinner date was pleasantly surprised to see me swap my usual black shift dress for something…else. Everyone wins.
