Too many mince pies at Chrimbo? Hate the gym? Don't panic! Help is at hand in the form of Asda's 'inch-pinching' new £28 dress.
You can say bye bye to your Bridget Jones-big pants with this waist-whittling number, as it has its own control panels already built in.
The pencil dress - and a £16 black skirt - use the same poly elastane technology as those not-so-sexy control pants.
Panels in an 'internal corset' stretch over typical problem areas - hips, waist and bust - smoothing out all those lumps and bumps.
Asda points out that the dress celebrates curves - coming back into fashion - by creating the perfect hourglass figure.
Manly curves, however, are seemingly not-so-celebrated. A £7 body sculpt best, known as the moob tube, recently sold out in 4 minutes on George.com, making it the fastest-selling product in the brand's history!
