Touching on a more personal subject but yet widely known and used.
So I am not embarrassed to talk about or admit that I am a fan of spanx or the ‘Bridget Jones underware’. Having been used for centuries these are what i would like to refer to as ‘wonder garments’. They say “Diamonds are a girls best friend” but for me my spanx are my best friends 😉 (of course diamonds come later too! Lol).
My Mom bought me my first pair of spanx when I was 12 years old. When she handed it over to me I thought “what the hell are these?!”. And then like any mother of a teenage daughter she explained the significance to me. I was a chubby or I’d rather say ‘healthy’ (to make myself feel better lol) child. So stepping into my teen years, I guess I was slowly becoming conscious of my changing body and probably that is why my Mom made her move to make me more aware of these little things. So every time I wore a dress I would slip on my spanx. Not only for bum-tum control but also because of the shorts which helped in protecting my modesty!
Now as an adult I absolutely love them as they totally disguise and smoothes out my lumps and bumps. With these on, I can bid farewell to my muffin tops and be confident without having to suck in my tummy for the whole darn day/night. Whether I am wearing trousers, dresses, skirt or even a fitted salwar you can be certain that beneath all that there is my wonder garment. Bless my DH as one day I was getting dressed in a hurry and he happened to walk in whilst I had my spanx on. He looked amused asked me “why do you have those superman shorts on?”. I was in a hurry and couldn’t care what he thought or said, but when I was travelling and when I recollected what he had said I just couldn’t stop laughing! Yea, ‘super woman shorts’ i thought. Ok so for people who need a little help to enhance their bum non-invasively, then why not try the padded shorts or a ‘booty pop’. These give a more curvy / shapely rare. I haven’t used them and haven’t found it a necessary to do so. However, reviews say they are good or the best!
So ever looked at a celeb and wondered “wow what gorgeous curves”?. Of course they do follow and work towards a strict diet and exercise regime BUT they also do resort to a little help from these wonder garments.
