I never thought the day would come when I admit to wearing these.
As a younger woman the idea filled me with dread; those were the days when a few extra gym sessions and a buttoning up of the lips would make a major difference. If only I appreciated the ease in which I could firm and flex in the space of hours. I have grown up and happily accepted the new pace of progress but I do look for help where I can find it.
We cannot go it alone all the time.
The unmentionable I am mentioning is shapewear.
What I once thought hideous, totally unsexy and on my forbidden list, I now embrace with my whole heart and am grateful for whoever put the serious firming into lingerie. They should be awarded and covered in accolades because this type of lingerie is a game changer. I’m sure I don’t need to tell you that. Shapewear not only streamlines our outward appearance but also shaves off the kilos. As for the sexy, there are chemise, camisole and ultimately dimmers to compensate for that ;) ;)
How my ideas have changed, expanded and what was once a no go is now a go-to most days. The all in one – perfect under dresses, especially those with a waist, or the shorts style for a narrower skirt and the regular briefs make my trousers so much more comfortable. Now I have become so accustomed to breathing in with the spandex I’m not sure I will wear anything else.
I don’t like to admit defeat but I’m taking the magic whenever I can. xv
