Where has time gone? To recap, I had a very healthy pregnancy, and I also remained active to stay as fit as possible – I felt that prepping for labor was similar to prepping for battle. Overall, I was able to “bounce back” fairly quickly (thank you breastfeeding!), but that doesn’t mean my stretched mid-section from twins didn’t leave me feeling a little self-conscious. I’m so thankful for Justin who reminds me how great I look, and for however long your babies were in your belly is typically the amount of time it takes for your body to return to it’s “normal” state. Since I have another five months to go (*le sigh*), I’m super fortunate to Spanx who have helped get me through the holiday season.
Spanx has been a friend of mine for years, and I’ve reaped the benefits of its body-shaping products time and time again. These days I am constantly repeating Regina George’s quote from Mean Girls that “sweatpants are all that fit me” since my hips are still wider from labor. I am a firm believer in the fake it ‘til you make it philosophy — insert Assets by Spanx Faux Leather Front Leggings. Disclaimer, I would rock these postpartum or not, as I’m a sucker for stylish leggings that support a woman’s curves. Best part, the leggings give me no guilt as I grab that extra cookie or glass of wine.
The Assets by Spanx line at Target is a game changer. Being able to purchase the ever-loved silhouette enhancers at an obtainable price is something to celebrate. Whether it’s a casual outing or a dinner, having the right leggings can be universal. I chose two different day looks to highlight my love for the leggings. So pair your favorite sweater/poncho/cardigan, etc with your favorite boot/flat/heel, etc., et voila! The options are endless, and that’s even more reason to celebrate!
