Are you over 30? 40? 50? 60? Treat yourself to How Not to Look Old, by Charla Krupp.
This hot new book has the kind of sensible advice even the style-cynic can take to heart. Fave chapter? "Learn to Love Shapewear." If you think today’s shapewear is only for the plus-sized, think again. According to Krupp, such single-digit sized-women as the desperate Housewives babes, Katie Couric, and Gwyneth Paltrow all recognize the need for some shaping.
Let’s face it, after a certain age, even the slimmest among us are prey to back fat, love handles, Buddha bellies and other less-than-attractive traits. Krupp recommends shapewear for pretty much all day, every day. Some of her suggested "Brilliant Buys?"
When it comes to bras, Krupp reinforces everything we keep telling you here on HerRoom—it’s about fit, fit, fit. Her quickie saggy boob test suggests you measure yourself from the top of your shoulder to the bend in your elbow. When trying on a bra, your nipple should hit about mid-way between the two, maybe slightly lower for very large breasts. Her Brilliant Buys in bras?
If you’re going to start knocking those years off, why not begin with your underwear drawer?

Around here, we extol the virtues of this panty style or that–they’re sexy, they’re smoothing, they’re comfy. According to this article on CNN, panties (the larger, the better) should probably be in every home’s emergency kit.
