I am sure we all love when summer finally arrives. I know I personally look forward to being able to take the kids out and let them play and not have to worry about bundling them up and hope that they don’t catch cold. However, there is one part of summer that I never look forward to. As the days begin to get warmer and warmer, it seems like the clothes become more and more revealing. This was a great concept pre-kids, but after kids there are just some things that are best hidden for the sake of innocent on lookers.
I love wearing form fitting shirts and shorts as much as the next person, but I also know that they aren’t neccessarly flattering on me. I recently received two great shapewear pieces from ASSETS by Sara Blakelyand they are fantastic!! For those of you that do not already know, Sara Blakely as in the creator of Spanx. After Spanx became practically a household name overnight, Sara decided to create ASSETS in 2006.
Both of the pieces that I had the opportunity to try are equally great, but the one that I reach for the most is the Fantastic Firmers High-Waist Girl Shorts. These are a perfect companion for shorts and great summer top. I have worn the High-Waist Girl Shorts under my shorts and dresses. They are very comfortable and can easily be worn all day long. This high-waist girl short firms your midriff and rear and is ideal for those seeking extra middle management with smoothing
Another Assets that I have had the opportunity to try is the Sensational Shaper. The Sensational Shaper is a high-waisted mid-thigh shaper that minimizes the waistline and comfortably slims the midriff, tummy, thighs, and rear. It also has a no leg band which makes it virtually invisible under clothing. This is a great piece that I find myself wearing with capris, dress pants and that occasional little black dress. It too wears wonderfully and feel just as great on at the end of the day as when I first put it on.
There is one more thing that makes ASSETS by Sara Blakely so wonderful, other than their amazing shaping abilities, is their price! ASSETS can be found online at the ASSETS website, but can also be purchased at Target.
