I was first introduced to Slimpressions as a company when I entered a contest on Twitter and WON! I was so excited! I never win anything, so when I won shapewear – I was super-excited to get something to help me look great underneath all of my more fitted garments. As my prize, Slimpressions sent me three items – the Tanks-A-Lot, the Tanks-A-Little and the Long-Leg-Shaper. I was a little bit hesitant when it came to giving them my size for my samples to be sent to be because I was worried that I would get these great items and they wouldn’t fit. In my experience with most shapewear brands, they items run much smaller than their size charts indicate! So I looked at the Slimpressions Size Chart and picked size 2 (I wear a size 10 pant) – and to my surprise, when they arrived – they FIT PERFECTLY!
I absolutely LOVE my Long-Leg-Shaper! I wear it underneath all of my dresses to give me a smoother silhouette. And when I looked at the Tanks-A-Little, a light-bulb went off in my head! Not only was this top great for women who want to have a little belly support under their garments, but it also doubles as a nursing cover for breastfeeding moms! Now I knew that there would be a great relationship with my boutique and Slimpressions!
This garment is just what every nursing mom wants – it covers your belly while you are nursing and it offers gentle support to help that post-partum tummy look like it did pre-baby!
In addition to great shapewear from Slimpressions, Amy Pedersen, co-founder of Slimpressions is also an author. She wrote a book entitled “The Miracle of ME: From Conception To Birth.” This book is unique because it is a journey through pregnancy from the baby’s perspective. While it is written in a way that is appropriate for children, it is also a great read for expectant moms (and dads too) to see what is going on inside of their bodies during each week of pregnancy. It contains very simple summaries and beautiful photographs of the developing fetus.
As part of our blogiversary celebration, Slimpressions owners Jon and Amy Pedersen have offered to give away TWO great prizes to TWO lucky Mommy News & Views Readers. The first one is your choice of one garment from the Slimpression Top Sleekret or Bottom Line Collections and the 2nd one is an autographed copy of Amy’s “The Miracle of Me” book! Those are two great prizes for anyone!! If you are pregnant, the book will be great for reading yourself and sharing with your older children to help them experience the miracle growing in your belly and if you aren’t, the great shapewear from Slimpressions will be your favorite undergarment – I guarantee it!!
