PROBLEM AREA: Bottom and hips. SOLUTION: Full brief panties.
A stylish full-brief panty with shaping support can double as sexy, retro lingerie. The Donna Karan "Rapture Amorous" shaping briefs look like retro French panties but have shaping support to provide a smooth silhouette without panty lines. The briefs have a stretch-satin panel in the front with eyelash lace. They are made of nylon/elastane and can only be hand washed. $68 at Nordstrom stores or Nordstrom.com.
