Taking the shame out of shapewear

Date: November 26, 2012 | Posted By: Audrey
Bump Watch (the obsessive and voyeuristic tracking of celebs’—or anyone’s, really—growing pregnant belly) is so last year.

So, when I saw the headline “’The Talk’ hosts’ makeup-free premiere,” I wasn’t sure what or whom they were discussing. It turns out that “The Talk” is a daytime Continue reading
