Want to drop a dress size but no time to go to the gym? Worry not, there's a new dress in town that claims to do all the hard work for you...

High street giant Marks & Spencer have created a new range called Magicwear and the star of the show is the fat-shrinking, figure-boosting Magicwear dress, from £65.

Not only does this smart frock enhance all the right places and minimise the wrong, it’s said to give the illusion of dropping 3in as soon as it hits your bod. The secret? A heavy duty elasticated lining designed to battle the bulges and flatten your tum.

Also available in black and grey. Visit www.marksandspencer.com to order online.
