So let’s talk straight. Carrying a baby can stretch things out a bit. Carrying more than one said baby can stretch things out even more. I remember the first time I was recovering from delivery and was ready to go out and about “in the real world” was my first time I purchased SPANX. Because let’s face it ladies things are just looser than they once were and I felt much more confident and comfortable with a little something holding me in.
The only problem was it was a full body suit type thing that was supposed to attach to the the bra and extended all the way down my inner thighs making it something of a unitard if you know what I am talking about. It did squeeze in all of the right places but it was near impossible to use the restroom quickly and was super HOT. It was a great solution for something you might want to wear under a dress but a little too cumbersome for your every day wear.
I was thrilled with Tummy Trimmer asked me together with a few of my blog friends to try out their jeans. It was so fun to see all of the different styles and it is a super comfortable cut. The fact that it holds in your middle is an extra bonus! My trouble area is right at my belly button and I was really happy with how these held me in. I wish I had an “UNDER” shot, but the product shot will just have to do.
This top is from Lilac Clothing is that offers a great mix of maternity fashion as well as non-maternity fashion and many of their items really can be worn during and after a pregnancy. We are hoping to have one more baby in the near future and this top will be super cute with a growing bump. You can check it out here and find a whole bunch of different styles that are so versatile and cute.
These gal pals of mine are gorgeous and super fun to follow on social media and their blogs. From left to right is Chelsey, Housewife2Hostess.com, Sandy, Sandyalamode.com and Cecilia from DearestLou.com. It was so much fun to come together and make a “look book” of the different styles that Tummy Trimmer Denim and Lilac Clothing have to offer.
