Q. I have a pair of white unlined pants—should I cut all pockets out and have them sewn together?
A. After having models try on countless pairs from various designers in all price ranges for our recent Today show segment, we were surprised by how many designers make pants that are nearly see-through. For pants with pockets that seem glaringly apparent, we do suggest taking them to a tailor to have the pockets cut out and the hole sewn closed. This can create a sleeker, smoother look.
Since transparent whites seem to be rampant among so many designers, make sure you also wear the right undergarments to avoid attracting any undue lingering attention – NEVER wear white, color or prints. My favorite is the Barely There Flawless Fit in nude. The bikini doesn’t ride up and is made of incredibly soft, thin fabric. The boy short version is also an excellent option for no VPL (visible panty lines).
