Well, someone had to do it - and Daily Mail journo Laura Stott stepped up to the plate to test 17 pairs of no-VPL knickers for the festive season. Did the figleaves.com examples earn glowing reviews? Of course; here's what the paper had to say:
- Miraclesuit high waist brief, below left, £22: "a revelation - completely invisible with no trace of VPL from any angle. Great for pulling on under a party outfit."
- Spanx high waisted power brief, below right, £27: "every woman needs a pair in her underwear drawer. They might look downright ugly, but once on the Spanx were comfortable, VPL free and left me totally streamlined and slinky."
