While I promote having a healthy body image and being proud of what you have, I’m not perfect. Ever since I found out about the “secret” to looking slimmer, I’ve been a fan of Spanx and how it can help with feeling more confident when you’re wearing body hugging dresses and outfits. I personally find it uncomfortable to suck in my stomach for hours, so wearing shapewear has actually served as a reminder to work on being more fit and lose that excess belly fat.
I’m not saying that you should wear shapewear everyday because then you’re just relying on it too much and not working other things like proper diet and exercise to get in shape. However, for those occasional nights out when you want to feel sexy and sassy while you’re in the process of losing that muffin top, I don’t see any problem with wearing Spanx. It beats being so self-conscious about your body that you don’t have fun in the fabulous outfit you’re wearing.
In fact, it’s amazing how underwear, especially wearing the right bra size can boost your confidence. If you’ve been reading this blog for awhile, you know that I’ve been on this sexy underwear mission for the past year. I’m more of a tomboy at heart, so cute and colorful underwear and bras make me feel girly, not to mention it gets my fiance excited if you know what I mean. He never really liked thong underwear, but one time I had bent over and he caught a glimpse of my…ahem… “assets”, and from then on he’s been a big fan of what he calls “booty floss underwear”.
Ladies, if you’re like me and keep underwear for years, it’s time to broaden your horizon and try something new. Don’t get stuck in an underwear rut. Believe me when I say that it’s one of the best wardrobe investments you can make.
