Dear Spanx: Not Today!

Dear Spanx: Not Today!

Today my boss flew in for a meeting, so I thought I’d make myself look a little extra sharp (you know…take off the leggings for a day!). I work from home usually, so actually dressing up isn’t a daily thing for me…again, hence the leggings!

I thought I’d put on some nice pair of Spanx jeans. I hadn’t worn them since before I got pregnant. While they fit and zipped up, they sucked everything in and just made me feel uncomfortable. My soft tummy squished and rolled over the sides. And I hated it. So you know what? I said SEE YA SPANX, for today at least. Today I didn’t care that my stomach is soft and mushy. I put on my everyday jeans that are decent enough for business casual, accompanied with a nice sweater. I didn’t care that my stomach sagged out and didn’t vacuum seal itself inside some scientifically formulated Spanx jeans. And while I truly do appreciate some good Spanx, today I just let it all hang out. And it felt amazing.

Have a good week, friends!!
