underwear for under your sundress

At lunch recently, my gals and I were discussing the best underwear  to wear underneath a sundress. Yes, we talk about underwear. We recommend, we slash and burn, we throw our hands up in disgust. A thong? Nope, your butt looks sadly unprotected. Briefs? Nope, panty lines (God FORBID). Boy shorts?!! Nope, they ride up on your leg.

Neen to the rescue gal pals o'mine. I have two fabulous suggestions:

Under Armour Women's Mesh Boy shorts. Hand to God girlies, these do not ride up, panty lines are non-existent and are extremely comfortable. And, if I do say so myself, they look pretty smokin' when they're on. In fact, while the product description doesn't claim it, I think these little darlings give my tush a smidge of a lift. Yep, I said it!  Word of warning: They are low rise, so if you're jammin' on the Oreos, you may want to stay away from these for a day or two.

Skinny Britches by Spanx:  These are not wintertime Spanx girls. The lightweight yet suck you in material is perfect for summer. They smooth you out under fitted dresses and are quite comfy. I wore a pair recently and truly forgot I had them on. I plan to buy them in bulk, as most of you know I love me some summah-time dresses.

You can find the Under Armour Boy Shorts at Dick's Sporting Goods or at www.underarmour.com

Skinny Britches are available at Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Saks. Or, if you're too busy sipping on Skinny Girl Margaritas, head on over to Spanx.com.
