Sofia Vergara’s curves are the subject of lots of debate (are those 32F breasts real? How does she manage to stay so slim?) but as it turns out, fajas are one of her secrets to looking smooth under her slinky, sexy outfits – and she wants women across the country to benefit from her style secret with the news that she’ll be releasing a brand-new line of shapewear.
“Usually, when I go to an event I wear shapewear.…It’s not to hold anything in, but to smooth everything out.…But I do have to wear a bra with everything,” Vergara told WWD about her new line of Kmart shapewear.
The line of shapewear will include “fun and cute” bodysuits, camisoles, tanks, bustiers, waist-shaping briefs and boyshorts, thigh slimmers, and both half and full-slips. And in a nod to Vergara’s much-talked about bust, bodysuits and bustiers will feature built-in bras in larger cup-sizes including 36C to 38DD and 40D sizes. There will also be plus-sized items and everything will be available in sultry combinations of red, black and dark brown.
“Shapewear has always been a part of a woman’s wardrobe, but I wanted it to look cute, not like a horrible girdle,” said Vergara, of the new addition to her line, which already includes clothing, accessories, jewelry and underwear. “It’s for the everyday woman who wants to look good without spending a lot of money on shapewear, earrings or high heels that make her look cute and sexy.”
The new line will be priced from $14.99 to $23.99 and every single item has been tried on by Vergara, who said she has the ultimate say on whether a product actually hits sales racks at Kmart stores.
“I’m not really a designer but my lines are based on what I like and what I wear. We have a lot of meetings and all of the product gets tried on by me,” explained Vergara, who has had her fair share of magazine covers modeling sexy, barely-there looks.
And only time will tell whether Vergara opts to wear any items from her intimate apparel collection while out on the town.
The actress, who has just finished filming “Heat” with Jason Statham in New Orleans, has had her fair share of wardrobe malfunctions: during her New Year’s celebration this year, her dress slipped to reveal one of her breasts and just before going on stage at the 2012 Emmy Awards, the zipper on her Zuhair Murad cut-out gown broke, making the 40-year-old feel a bit cheeky about the prospect of baring all on national television.
