As most of you already know, I'm dealing with the fupa I've acquired since birthing my sweet Isaak. It's no fun and frankly, I don't enjoy my belly flopping around like a salmon out of water as I walk down the street, or jiggling like fresh made jello as I drive down the road. Have any of you ever noticed how much chubbier you look when you're carrying a baby? I think it's because you lean back and distort your body to make it comfortable for both you and the babe. Whatever it is, it's not flattering. Especially if you have extra skin dangling like I do. Because of this, I've invested in my new best friend...my SPANX! Thanks to my friend Jessica, I was introduced to this fabulous piece of clothing (probably because she too was annoyed at watching the salmon flop).
The spanx has become my new best friend. I wore her today as I went to church and already received several compliments on how thin I already look just mere weeks after having a baby. Little do they know, I packed my flesh into this little number like sardines in a can. When my spanx arrived at my house, I busted the package open, anxious to try the beauty on. I was a little concerned as I pulled it out of the package because it looked like it was made to fit Isaak. THAT'S how tight it is. You may wonder if it's comfortable?? No. Of course not. But it's more comfortable than flapping flesh. And WAY more comfortable than the cheap versions of spanx found in department stores (which I also tested). And I use the uncomfortableness as motivation to get RID of the chubby instead of continuing to just hide it. My spanx will only be for temporary use (fingers crossed).
I have to wear it as my second skin, because there's no way on earth anythings getting under it. But that's okay. I'm willing to feel a little squeezed for the time being. AND I don't wear it everyday with every outfit. Only those special days when I wanna look extra hot!
They have many options when you're buying a spanx, but I chose to go with the "Higher Power Panties" shown above because it covered my trouble spots (belly, hips, butt and thighs...oh wait that's everything). The one I chose was quite affordable but they have a wide range of items and prices.
Just thought I'd share! Oh, and just so you know, I chose NOT to purchase the clear stripper heels shown in the picture to go with my stripper hair. Go Spanx!
