Sofía Vergara is to launch a "fun and cute" shapewear range for Kmart.
The Modern Family actress' nine-piece line of shapers will be available in about 800 US stores from June.
The range will complement Sofía's existing collections of dresses, sweaters, shoes, boots, handbags, jewellery, bedding and home accessories.
“My shapewear launch is very exciting and really fun for me because the colours and materials are so sexy,” she told WWD.
The Sofía Vergara collection for Kmart was first unveiled in 2011. Sofía says the addition of sexy shapewear to her line was important.
"Shapewear has always been a part of a woman’s wardrobe, but I wanted it to look cute, not like a horrible girdle," she said. "It’s for the everyday woman who wants to look good without spending a lot of money on shapewear, earrings or high heels that make her look cute and sexy.”
Well-known for her voluptuous curves, Sofía wears shapewear to "smooth everything out." The bombshell has final approval on all of her namesake products sold at Kmart.
“I’m not really a designer but my lines are based on what I like and what I wear. We have a lot of meetings and all of the products get tried on by me,” she said.
The affordable shapewear collection will include toning bodysuits, camis, tanks, bustiers, waist-shaping briefs and boyshorts, thigh slimmers, and half and full-slips. Bodysuits and bustiers with built-in bras will be cup-sized 36C to 38DD and 40D. Colours will be combinations of black and coffee brown and black and red. Suggested retail will be $14.99 to $23.99.
The actress has been shooting the new thriller Heat with Jason Statham and in July she'll start work on a movie with actor-director Jon Favreau.
