Summer Swell: Sure, summer's a swell season, but you don't want to (swell, that is)! Since August can be the hottest month, we've put together a few of our faves to soothe, slim and cool you down.
Instant Slim
You know those days when you wish you could lose 10 pounds in the next 10 minutes? (For some of us, that's every day.) Your prayers are answered! Skinny Pants slims away lumps, bumps and bulges just by sliding into the specially designed trousers. They lengthen your legs, slim and separate thighs, and give your derriere a boost but, make no mistake, this is not your grandmother's girdle. The chic and slinky wash-n-wear SkinnyPants are so comfortable you can wear them day & night; they never stretch out--you can even do plies or squats in them! They promise to make you look one size smaller; if your weight fluctuates, order the median size. Designer Catherine Hart says they can accommodate a 10-15 pound weight fluctuation. Katwalk ($90, also in a Capri style $75) is the sleeker version, with a boot cut and back zip (ergo, not really gym-friendly), fancy enough for evening wear, while K-Two ($69) is a sportier design in an ultra-strong, high-wicking fabric, with a fold down waist-band to slim the stomach or flatten the abdomen. As of press time, we hear that colors are coming soon, starting with khaki; then look out for the next wave: SkinnyJeans! WooHooo...Only at
