Whether you are readying for a job interview, first date, red carpet event or just daily dress, your intimates are undeniably the most important aspect to your look. Who wants back bulge or muffin tops or panty lines? No fashionista or starlet that’s for sure!

When I first began interning for Rhonda while I was in college, I was your normal 2 bra kind of gal, one for daily use and one strapless, and 2 style of panty kind of gal, thongs and full coverage boy shorts. Here is where Rhonda taught me truly how pivotal her motto, “foundation is where fashion begins,” really is. Suddenly my intimates drawer outgrew itself with leisure bras and bouidor pieces and slimming tap shorts! Being the experienced fashionista that she is, Rhonda explained to me (in her own comedic way) that she could see my booty crack in certain dresses and my gaping bra cup in my tops… but then she offered solutions! Pin-Up Panties (#R380671B) for fuller booty coverage! Perfectly fitting Va-Va-Voom Push-Up bras (#81985)! My world, and wardrobe, quickly changed and aided in morphing me in the fashion-obsessed girl that I am today!

With my “intimate” learnings always present, I examined my dress choice for Fashion Week Tampa Bay with the utmost scrutiny… as Rhonda presented a fabulous runway couture “50 Shades of Love” line, I wanted to be sure to represent her camp right! As the dress I wore was backless, I knew that a bra was not optional (an aspect that I was leary of at first but Rhonda reassured me immediately that it was “Hot!!!”). For a smoothe look, I chose the “Sweet Cupcake” Butterknit lace trim panty (#R2811) as my choice undergarment. Always a best seller, this silhouette’s lace trim top lays nicely against your hips not creating muffin tops… the perfect fix!

Being a star of the night with one of the most applauded collections on the runway, our fearless leader shined in her unique & fabulous style both on and off the red carpet!
