Not So Fabulous- Permanently pregnant stomach- part two- solutions and temporary fixes!


Since the response (I am sad to say) was so overwhelming, I thought I'd offer a few tips to those new mothers and permanently preggers moms like me.

I can say it in two words: COMPRESSION GARMENT. I know what you're thinking...a girdle? Spanx? Oh yes, and so much more!!!


Design Veronique- has compression garments that are made to be worn after plastic surgery so that you heal firmly and in place. Well, after giving birth this may be the quickest way to slim down. It's a bit uncomfortable at first but them it feels and fits like a glove. This is waaaaay tighter than any other spanxish product. They also have one in all shapes, sizes (be sure to follow the measuring charts) and colors. This is especially good when your stomach bulge is too high for spanx. Here's the one I got. It even comes with an open pee pee hole in case you want to wear it all day. (I know TMI!)



Of course with any of these consult your doctor first!!!!

Fit Sugar also features something called "Lipo in a Box", the same basic idea. You can see from the pictures above this works! It's either a permanent or temporary solution to the pregnant stomach nightmare. My mom found this product (thanks mom!)

Thanks for all the support about my new job. I got my first paycheck today and I have to say it feels pretty damn good!!!!

Congratulations on the first paycheck!

I had to wear an abdominal binder after my c-section, so it is kind of like that contraption. I was watching Jon and Kate +8 and she wore something like what you posted. Of course, then someone gave her plastic surgery for free...

My mom is a nurse. She went to nursing school with four little ones, nights, weekends,etc. She said the best tip she had for me is ALWAYS blow your first pay check on yourself . Be sure to report your splurge purchase!:)PS Thanks for the tip, I have a wrap dress for my daughters graduation(not very forgiving...Can you say back fat?)LOL

Congrats on the first paycheck, my uncle always says,"make sure you pay yourself first." I take that way too literally, oh well!!

Do those undergarments help you lose weight too?

Will you be using your paycheck to buy some of these contraptions? I really need to try one of these.
