Control tights are a valuable asset for women of all ages, however, they are not always something people want to show off.
Following the Royal Television Society Awards, Carol McGriffin and Denise Welch - they of Loose Women lunchtime fame - were clearly feeling a little playful.
The Sun reports that Carol cheekily raised her skirt and flashed the assembled paparazzi - and her co-host shortly followed suit.
However, the red-top gleefully proclaimed that when poor Denise did so, it quickly became apparent that, unlike her friend's elegant lace undies, she was clad in thigh-shaping control tights
can be a useful asset in the battle to fit a certain skirt or to create the perfect silhouette
when slinking about in a dress to die for.
Online shopping advice resource Celebrity Lingerie explains that control tights
can help create a "very beautiful" shape, usually flattening the tummy and firming the backside.
