As the festive season draws upon us, it is time for us ladies to put on our favourite party dresses and sparkly heels and venture out into the chilly nights to celebrate with friends and family. However, for the majority of people, the festive season is also about pure indulgence. Food, wine and sweeties are usually on the menu and can leave us feeling a little self-conscious about our figures.

So to help (and even save) the guilt of eating the 50th mince pie of the day, all you need is the perfect shapewear to smooth and sculpt our womanly curves. This is why lingerie brand Playtex has come to the rescue with their fabulous range of festive season shape wear.

Why wait to look slimmer when Playtex have the solution to give you an instant slimming effect?

Invisible under clothes, this great shapewear range combines comfort with smart design. The Pure Control range also features slimming technology including Powernet lining to ensure strong support and gathering to provide shapely contours.

Furthermore our three-step flat zig zag stiching ensures invisibility and the silicone waistband guarantees it stays in place. The Playtex Pure Control range offers varying options of high-level support for the tummy, bottom and thigh areas.
