The all-things-skinny dynamo Bethenny Frankel has created Skinnygirl Shapers, or shapewear that looks like lingerie, and it's now available for under $50 at Macy's. The styles are meant to be for "real women" (see real women above and here), and she also told SheFinds that "it's lazy lingerie. You can wear it under a blazer or a cardigan and then take it off for a hot date or your husband." That's all well and good, but no matter how much lace you put on a gut-sucking garment, it's the taking it off part that's worrisome. There is no sexy there.
