You must have heard of Wonder Panties. They are the ones that push-up your sagging bum and gives it a round shape. Then there are those spandex tubes that you use to squeeze in your belly and love handles and all that saggy bits around the torso and of course you have body shapers that you wear on your thighs to firm it up and not wobble like a jelly when you walk.
The interesting bit is the list of ladies who use body shapers and lie about doing Power Yoga to be trim is really long. Queenie Singh is one such socialite who survives on body-shapers. Recently at a Luxury Store’s trial room she sought the help of a sales girl to hook up her bra and the poor girl was shocked to see layers of spandex wrapped all over. I loved it when she said, “She looked like a mummy (the Egyptian kinds) all wrapped up.
And did you know that Atulya Mafatlal, Sheetal Mafatlal’s hubby has got his tummy stapled? Eeeeks, how can you do that? Also the gossip-mill is strong that K-Jo too wraps his tummy under a latex cummerbund. It’s amazing what all things people do to create a beautiful illusion. Though Atul Mafatlal doesn’t even look good after the illusion.
