Veronica Frazier, 56
Before: When jeans fit Veronica's hips, they usually squeeze her waist—which is why she took scissors to her old pair and wore shirts untucked to hide the damage. But what her boyish figure needs is more waist definition, not less, as well as a bit of abdominal camouflage.
After: Subtle control via a stretch-fabric panel in front and a midrange waistband give Veronica instant sophistication. Add a little sparkle, and she's set for the evening.
