Glossard Glossies are seam-free, but if you're wearing a very thin top, go for the Matt range, which isn't see-through. From pounds 18 for a bra (tel: 01525 859769).

For fabulous comfort try Hanro. Its Touch Feeling seam-free range comprises crop tops, camisoles, big pants and vests. From pounds 15 for briefs.

If you can't bear thongs, banish your VPL with these big knickers by Marks & Spencer, pounds 14 (tel: 0171 935 4422). Also try its Tactel shorts knickers, pounds 8.

If you don't need a bra, try wearing just this Body Slimmers Nancy Glanz hip slip, pounds 25, for a totally seam-free look (tel: 01159 795796 for stockists).
