Blog: Leonie BarrieDoes my bum look big in this?

Leonie Barrie | 13 April 2005

Most women spend their time trying to reduce the size of their bottom, let alone do just the opposite. So what’s the reasoning behind a new generation of functional underwear that features removable padding to give the wearer a much shaplier bottom? The Falke Contour Panty apparently took 18 months in research and development before being launched onto the market. And the philosophy behind the knickers is the increasing acceptance in the fashion world of different body shapes - and role models such as J.Lo who have provided an avenue for viewing the bottom in a different way. The way the pads are positioned, for example, emphasises the bottom and also the waist giving the wearer a better silhouette. It's an interesting idea - and one that hosiery makers have been experimenting with for some years now - and it'll be interesting to see whether or not it takes off!
