How to feel slimmer in a dress without having to lose weight

I’ve been on the search for the best undergarment to help keep it all together, (if you know what I mean.) Like I said in a previous post, I’m going to be honest, I’ve got a belly! Having babies definitely changes your body! After baby no. 3, I’ve been trying my best to get back into shape. I’ve changed my diet by trying to cut out the sugar and by focusing on eating mostly fruits and vegetable and whole foods. I’ve also tried to cut out processed foods and fast foods as much as possible. If you’ve been following my blog, I’ve also been trying to incorporate regular exercise into my lifestyle by doing a fitness app called Workout Trainer. I’ve realized the easiest way to fit exercise in my busy schedule is by working out at home.

Both of these changes that I have incorporated into my life have really helped me to lose a lot of the post pregnancy weight. I haven’t reached my target weight yet, but I’m almost there. I’m trying to be patient with myself and I know eventually I will get there. It took several months to pack on the pounds and so I know losing it won’t be fast and easy. I just have to keep trying and not give up on my goals and believe that I can do it. I just have to be consistent and persistent.

If you are like me, and you’ve got a bit of baby weight lingering on you and you want to feel sexy and confident in a dress, you may want to try shapewear. I’ve tried on sooo many different types of tummy taming undergarments, and I could never find one that actually felt comfortable. Usually they are too tight, they dig into your stomach, and you can’t tolerate to wear it for more than 10 minutes. You hear a lot about Spanx but I didn’t like to succumb to hype and thought, I could probably find one that was cheaper and just as good. But I finally caved in and went to The Hudson’s Bay Company and tried on a pair…. and they were awesome! It really looked like I shrunk about two dress sizes. It was tighter in all the right places and it made my tummy look a lot smoother and flatter.

The brand is actually called ASSETS, Red Hot Label by SPANX. They didn’t have a lot of selection at the Hudson’s Bay in Richmond but the associate told me that the Hudson’s Bay downtown had way more selection. So, if you are looking to grab yourself a pair of these, I’d go there. So now when I wear dresses, I love to wear my Spanx. They’re comfortable and they help me feel good in a dress.

If you’re going to a wedding or a special occasion where you have to wear a dress, I would definitely recommend this product. It’s going to give you that nice smooth, flat tummy so you can rock your dress and feel good about how you look without feeling uncomfortable.
