This magical ability to hide a multitude of sins (and that box of chocs you know you shouldn't have eaten) lies at the heart of our love affair with Big Pants.
Even when you haven't been able to stick to your diet and your dress is a size too small, you can rely on your trusty pair of superfirm control pants.
The power of Lycra will suck you in from knees to chest, sculpting a waist that didn't seem to be there when you got up this morning.
Since it's such a "craze" will they please send a pair to every Hollywood skank out there even the dudes. They look fugly, but I'd rather see a big girl panty than a nasty ass snatch. That's the truth.
