Back to the BASE!!!!!!






Please, Please, Please for the love of all that is holy….Can we please make a pack in 2010 to wear the correct and proper foundation garments?  PLEASE?



Now let’s start with the basics of what a foundation is, I got this from Wikipedia:

A foundation garment (also known as shape wear or shaping underwear) is an undergarment designed to temporarily alter the wearer’s body shape, to achieve a more fashionable figure. The function of a foundation garment is not to enhance a bodily feature (as would, for example, a padded bra) but to smooth or control the display of one.

Specific styles of foundation garments have been essential to some fashion movements, and required in some social situations in various fashion periods, particularly but not exclusively for women. Garments may be categorized according to level or shape control offered – for instance, light, medium or firm. The simplest foundation is a body-liner or bodysuit, which are an ultra-light-weight leotards, and offers a light touch of smoothing. These are available in a unitard style (shortened legs) or a camisole-leotard style. The leotard offers greater control from a body-liner, and is available in boy-leg and capri-leg lengths, with spaghetti straps, low cut necklines, and even scoop backs, to cater for the outer wear under which the garments will be worn. These softly smooth the figure and provide light support. Micro-fiber camisoles and boy-leg briefs or “hot pants” are also available. Girdles are often called “body shapers” or “contour garments”. These garments are made with much more Lycra spandex than the 10% lycra / 90% cotton blend of most leotards, and they offer the highest level of shaping and support.

Basically to look your best and for your clothes to hang properly and give you the best shape you need the right foundation. * can you tell this is irking me lol *   They are just that the foundation to a great look, just like a building needs a strong foundation, your clothes need a strong foundation.

Here is a list of the different types of foundations:

I will do a weekly series of  different foundations  Please check our your local department store or even Walmart for different foundations you will be amazed at what you can find there and how much it will make a difference in how your clothes look.

I bet you thought I was going to talk about baseball lol NOT!!

Love Peace and Curvy-ness…..
