Kiss those unsightly big-girl panties goodbye!

Shapewear has long played a supporting role in fashion, smoothing thighs, eliminating bra bulge and putting a little less jiggle in your wiggle.

But an increasing number of designers are building the shapewear right into their clothes, so women no longer have to fear that passion-killing moment (a la “Bridget Jones”) when those ponderous panties are revealed.

Shani Grosz is the latest to offer control in her clothing designs. Her new line, called Nue by Shani (, offers casual and cocktail dresses designed to do away with the age-old question: Does this dress make me look fat?

“A woman doesn’t have to think about what kind of girdle to put on underneath, what kind of control-top hose. You just zip, you’re sucked in and you’re ready to go.”

Each dress contains a layer of compression fabric—with silicone to help hold it in place—that helps smooth lumps and bumps without making you look as if you’re wearing a scuba suit.

Very stylish! YOu can find the line at Dillard’s and

My favorite!
