Gretta's Got It: Shape wear
When you think of a girdle, you probably recall images from the 50s. But the girdle has changed, and it can do wonders for your body! Gretta's Got It.
WSVN -- Gretta Monahan: "Whether you want to trim that tummy or slim down those saddle bags, I'm going to show you the best in form-fitting fashion, so you can be slimmer in an instant."
Gretta Monahan: "Shape wear is a fashion foundation. Believe it or not, even stars like Gwyneth, Beyonce and Jessica Alba pull on some lean-looking lingerie when they want to slim down."
Gretta Monahan: "Now, I know you are the go-to girl in girdles, so, tell me, what's different today? Why don't they look like my grandma's kind?"
Shape wear expert: "Well, modern shape wear has taken a new form with all the Lycra materials. It's really smooth. It's giving you a nice, smooth surface and just giving you shape and control."
Gretta Monahan: "So, say goodbye to the granny girdles. Today's versions are comfortable, easy to wear and virtually undetectable. Is it really true that you can look up to ten pounds slimmer with just a shaper?"
Shape wear expert: "I think you can look at least 10 pounds thinner, but, I think, what's more important, is that you look proportionate."
Gretta Monahan: "The key areas women want to tone and tighten: the tummy, hips and thighs."
Shape wear expert: "Some women want to solve all three."
Gretta Monahan: "Let's start with the biggest problem area-- the stomach. So let's suit it up. See how sexy? Well, this shaper will help smooth out your stomach and get rid of that body bulge, but if a body suit is too constricting, the high rise pull-up is for you."
Shape wear expert: "This is wonderful because you can put this pantie with any bra and get that shaping look, and this would smooth out your clothing."
Gretta Monahan: "Want to make an ordinary tank extraordinary? What's so great is these typical looking tanks will tone and tighten because the material magically pulls you in and lifts you up. Leggings are a great way to say goodbye to hips and thighs."
Gretta Monahan: "It gives a nice smoothing shape, again, giving tummy control and bun control and bun lift."
Gretta Monahan: "A fashion fake-out. You can wear these under cover or show them off, like the stars. If you're worried about your behind, butt-trimming shorts can work wonders."
Gretta Monahan: "A problem with the old shapers is they'd flatten everything out, including the booty. Not with the new ones. Now they'll put a little junk in your trunk."
Gretta Monahan: "And the Lycra material will move with you, but my favorite shape wear must-have is a slip with support."
Gretta Monahan: "OK, honestly, I could wear this out tonight, just add some jewelry. This is a shaper?"
Shape wear expert: "This is a control slip, and it has some nice, little control in the bust line to give good bust lift, but, more importantly, it smooths the entire surface, so you can wear that great, tight knitted dress."
Gretta Monahan: "So don't obsess when you dress because now you know that a figure flaw fix can be sexy and stylish. I'm Gretta for Gretta's Got It."
