Ed’s let­ter

TV Plus (South Africa) - - YOU ASK -

The other day I’m run­ning into a store for some­thing ran­dom and I spot tum­my­tuck un­der­wear. Now I’m no stranger to sculpt­ing un­der­wear, but I’m used to the proper ones that look like postage stamps and when you step in them, they ex­pand from above your knees to un­der your bra to hide all the bulges. This tummy-tuck one looked slightly more com­fort­able and I de­cided to give it a try. The lovely cashier held it up, looked and me and be­fore she could say any­thing, I said, “Yes, I know. I have this tummy. I’m go­ing to try this.” “Yes,” she agrees, “it may work.” She also has a tummy, she says as she stands up to show me, and to­gether we try to fig­ure out the size she will need. “You know,” she sighs. “I just want to look like Con­nie Fer­gu­son. I love her look in The Queen. Have you seen it?” “Of course!” I say. And we go on to spec­u­late if Con­nie will ever need tuck-in un­der­wear. This is­sue is full of beau­ti­ful stars and sto­ries. And I as­sure you, a lot is hid­den!

Con­nie Fer­gu­son, Har­riet on The Queen (see p25).
