Let's say you're wearing boyfriend jeans or some chinos. You don't have to worry about VPL. You can go for comfort. Something like these Barely There boy shorts. No seams, no tags, perfect under denim.
Office attire requires something a little more, shall we say, slimming. Something that looks good under pants or skirts. The best choice disappears under clothes. You want to be held in without having to work up a sweat stuffing yourself into a pair of undies labeled superhold. Behold the Skinny Britches.
Every so often a girl gets a chance to get all dressed up and go out. Cocktail dresses and evening outfits are often revealing and formfitting. Here you have two options. Go minimal, like a thong, or smooth yourself out top to bottom. The big sister of the Skinny Britches, the High Waisted Short, removes every flaw. The tummy disappears, and they don't make going to the bathroom difficult like the super duper slimmers.
