Fashion crimes are committed daily on the mean streets of New York City.
Undergarment-based offenses are considered especially heinous. Gwyneth and I witness these tragic felonies all too frequently. As your dedicated detectives, we’ve investigated these vulgar crimes and are reporting today with solutions to bring some order to the laws of momentum and gravity. This is our story. The truth is, we’ve all got a story. We’ve all witnessed an undergarment-based offense. Chances are many of us have committed one. Even scarier, you may have unknowingly committed one. Because, at some point, each of us has fallen into one of the following three categories:
- You need a little help in keeping everything in the right place. Your undergarments are not adequately meeting that need.
- You don’t have excess that needs to be addressed. (
We find you annoying.Congratulations.) You wear teeny undergarments to avoid a VPL, but with some outfits made of lightweight materials, they aren’t doing anything for your buns, hun.
- You have the good sense to ask for help when you need it. You’re wearing shapewear, but it’s either constantly riding up or so uncomfortable that you can’t stop tugging at it.
Any of these sound like you? Since we’re keepin’ it real here…I’ll admit that I’ve fallen into each category at one point or another. Most often it’s #3. So when Jockey asked me to try out its new line of Rachel Zoe’s “Major Must Haves” from Jockey, I said yes immediately. (Gwyneth was fully supportive.) Jockey is known for quality and comfortable undergarments, and Rachel Zoe puts flawless fashion first, so theoretically, the products in this line should stay in place, keep circulation flowing to the extremities, and be outfit-enhancing.
To demonstrate our commitment to cleaning up the streets, Gwyneth and I shopped our closet for the least-forgiving dress we own to test out these “Major Must Haves.” Our Black Halo Jackie O dress isn’t just body-conscious, it’s stop-and-notice-all-of-me red. So we paired it with the Tummy Short to see if it could spend a little less time on a hanger.”(Remember this photo from our round up of LRDs? Well now you’re in on one of our little secrets!)”
Now, Gwyneth and I won’t be pulling this one out for the next children’s birthday party we’re invited to. But the Tummy Short did stay in place, was comfortable and smoothed flaws and lines. Paired with low heels and understated hair and makeup, this dress is appropriate for a fashion-felony-free night out.
This is our story, and now we want to hear yours. We’re even offering a reward for fellow crime-stoppers!
Tell us about a time you committed or witnessed an undergarment-based offense, and you’ll be entered for a chance to win a $100 Jockey gift card! And due to the sensitive nature of this topic, we definitely understand if the names are changed to protect the guilty!
