dMondaine: Where Shapewear and Sexy Meet

Have you ever had that crisis when you want to wear the granny panties because you know they’ll make the dress look better, but you fear getting home and having your hub see what’s underneath? Designer Kiana Anvaripour calls it the “Bridget Jones moment” and she’s making it her business to ensure it doesn’t happen to you ever again, thanks to her shapewear line, dMondaine.


The designer believes you should take pride in your curves. Her line does everything to emphasize them.

Using their patent-pending material ResultWear in a strategic assembly to create banded pieces that hold you in expertly, the tanks, corsets, panties, slips, and other items in the line are designed for maximum shaping power. But if that’s nothing new, consider the way these luxurious pieces look. Personally, I’ve never been fooled by the “pretty” shapewear options shoved at me in the media or at chain retailers. Boring, and even when lacy, still ugly. But the high-fashion sensibility of Anvaripour’s line makes it as exquisite looking as the dress you’ll wear on top will be.


If only we all looked this glamorous at the start of the day, right? The undies are perfect for upping the ante any time, though.

I recently interviewed the designer for a piece on bridal shapewear options for my blog and was heartened by her kindness but also her unyielding dedication to making women feel beautiful. “At the end of the day, you see what you look like when getting dressed. At dMondaine we encourage women to keep the lights on!” I couldn’t agree more with the sentiment and encourage you to treat yourself to one of these sexy, hourglass-forming pieces. Whether you need something special for an upcoming wedding or event, or are looking for a catch-all piece to serve under fitted work ensembles, little black dresses, and more, I guarantee you’ll fall in love with dMondaine. Here are some of my favorite pieces to appeal to the sexy mama in us all:


Meet STELLA, the only skirted undergarment you’ll ever need to own from here on out. And with her, you’ll find the JANE bra, who makes back-fat a thing of the past while lifting up your girls expertly.


I’m also a massive fan of MARILYN, who smartly zips and unzips for easy on-off and none of that awful pulling that happens with other full-length shaping designs. This piece is a must-have and will make every dress in your closet shine. Your husband also won’t hate it. Quite the opposite, I find!


BRIDGET might just be the prettiest undie top I own, and paired with high-waisted mesh LANA panties, you could do nothing more to prepare yourself for a day of taking the world. And a night of, well lounging around looking hot.

Bras and panties range from $50 to $98; skips, skirts, and one-pieces start at $109. Shop my favorites and the entire collection at high-end retailers like Net-a-Porter and Bergdorf Goodman, or online at
