Sometimes an accessory comes along that has us smacking our collective foreheads, because we didn’t realize we even needed it. Think see-through bra straps, for example. Or iPods. The destined-to-be-legendary “Invisibelt” ($20) now falls into this category. This one-size-fits-all clear belt lies flat under even the tightest tops, acting as a waistline cincher and it keeps your loose-fitting pants up without any bulk.
We’ve written about the Invisibelt before, but with the continuing boom in loose-waisted boyfriend jeans, the annual onslaught of beachwear diets and cargo shorts that tend towards just a bit past slouchy (oh-and let’s not forget those stretchy jeggings that creep down with every step)–we all have that problem at times. Or at least, those of us who don’t actually enjoy hitching our pants up by the beltloops like Farmer John, or resembling Plumber Joe from the rear.
