Her slender frame defined the shape of the 1960s, but it turns out that even Twiggy needs a bit of help to suck her tummy in these days.
The British model said the high-rise jeans in the clothing range she co-designed for retailer Marks & Spencer were flattering and helped said high-waisted jeans were flattering and comfortable.
"I do my jeans to my waist because I think that's really comfortable. I get so many letters saying, 'Thank God the hipster jeans have gone.' Because they are so uncomfortable. It hurts my hip bones. But also the high rise jeans hold your tummy in - we love that!" she laughed.
Twiggy, 62, started modelling when she was 16 and fashion has been a part of her life ever since.
She said she loved making her own clothes.
"I've spent my life around clothes. I learnt to sew when I was 12, because in those days you learnt to sew. I still sew, it's my hobby," she told UK TV show Lorraine. "My bliss day is having fabric, my machine, putting my music on and making something. I love it. It's very good for your head as well."
Twiggy, real name Lesley Lawson, appeared on America's Next Top Model as a judge for several seasons. She thoroughly enjoyed it, although she was strict about what she would and wouldn't do on screen.
"When Tyra's [Banks] people rang me to say will you come on, I was thrilled. But I said, 'I'm not going to be nasty.' Because I was that young girl once and I know how vulnerable you are," she said.
"You could shatter their dreams so even if it wasn't going to work for them I tried to be constructive and kind."
