Sofia Vergara has launched a shapewear line to her fashion collection at Kmart this week, and the 40-year-old's nine-piece line of shapers will be released at around 800 Kmart stores beginning in June.
Best known for her role on ABC's sitcom "Modern Family," Vergara is also famous for her fuller figure, and she recently discussed the line of "fun and cute" intimates with Women's Wear Daily.
"My shapewear launch is very exciting and really fun for me because that colors and materials are so sexy," said the actress.
The Colombian actress already has collections at Kmart that include handbags, dresses, sweaters, shoes, boots, jewelry, and home accessories.
"This has been a great adventure starting with clothing and accessories, fine jewelry and watches, and most recently hosiery and underwear," said Vergara. "Now with shapewear, we have covered most of the stuff I've wanted to do."
As for whether she already wears shapewear or not, Vergara admitted that the undergarments help her appearance in an unexpected way.
"Usually, when I go to an event I wear shapewear," said the starlet. "It's not to hold anything in, but to smooth everything out. But I do have to wear a bra with everything."
It comes as no surprise that Vergara is behind a shapewear line since the actress is often answering questions about her famous figure.
While speaking to Shape magazine earlier this year, the actress revealed secrets about her diet.
"If I could, I would have foie gras and eclairs for breakfast, lunch, and dinner," said the "Modern Family" star, who added that she eats cake almost every day.
"I love it," she continued. "Vanilla cake, angel food cake, chocolate cake. For me and my son, buying cake at the grocery store is like buying milk. We always have it in the house."
Vergara has one son Manolo, 21, from a previous marriage. The actress is engaged to businessman Nick Loeb.
