How Not To Look Old

Are you over 40? 50? 60? Here’s a fun book to pick you up – 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?” Flexees One Fabulous Body Camisole 77320, Spanx 160 High Waisted Footless Pantyhose, Donna Karan Hosiery Donna Karan Body Perfect Slimmer – Level 1 0A701, Maidenform Control It High-Waist Brief 12419. When it comes to bras, Krupp reinforces everything I keep telling you here on HerRoom—it’s about fit, fit, fit. Her quickie saggy boob test, which has been on HerRoom for over 8 years, 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? Le Mystere Tisha Bra – Full Figure Renaissance 9955, Wacoal iBra Contour Bra 85380, Chantelle Volupte Molded Minimizer Bra 2361, Natori Sheer Mesh Convertible Contour Plunge 132005. If you’re going to start knocking those years off, why not begin with your underwear drawer?
