With the Christmas party season coming round quickly, I’m worried about my post baby tummy! All those beautiful dresses I want to be wearing, yet the self concious side of me worries that my tummy will ruin the look of all of them. I’ve started to eat healthily and exercise more, but I don’t think it will resolve my body confidence issues in time for the Christmas season! I got offered Spanx Higher Power Briefs to try out, and for anyone who doesn’t know what Spanx are (where have you been?!) they are pants which claim to slim your lumps and bumps make you look more shapely.
The first thing I have to say is when I got them out of the packet I gasped and wondered if I’d ordered the wrong size, as they looked teeny tiny, my waist has never been that small!!
Having checked the size, and realised that they were actually meant to be that size I decided to try them on. Ladies, be warned, this is not an exercise to undertake in a small space, you need a bit of “wriggling room” to be able to get into these! Once you get the method they’re easy to get into, but for a first timer like me I found myself wriggling about for a minute or two!
So, I guess the biggest concern is whether they’re comfortable or not, and in my view they are amazingly comfortable – I certainly didn’t feel restricted! Do they work? Well, you’ll have to decide what you think from the photos below. I think, they definitely make a difference to how I look, making me appear less flabby and more fabby. Do remember they can’t work miracles, but they’ve certainly given me a little more confidence post baby! I’ll definitely be wearing them over the Christmas season, they’re a great quick slimming solution, until I start to lose my Mum tum via diet and exercising in the New Year.
