The Mum Bod. Oh I had been warned about how my body would change after having kids. “Your body changes its shape completely” I would hear. ” Even if you lose all the weight you will never be the same”. I took all of these warnings with a pinch of salt, I was going to lose the weight and I was going to be skinnier and fitter than ever after having my baby. Little did I know what was ahead of me.
Two years on and I still find that I am too scared to look at myself in the mirror. My previous love of tight body con dresses has had to be put on standby. How am I ever going to look somewhat attractive with these extra wobbly bits protruding from places I didn’t even know they could protrude from?
One word my lovely ladies……….
Don’t be fooled by their hip hugging appearance. Bodysuits for me (and for a lot of other mums I know) are my mum bod saviour! Though they appear to be tight and revealing they are actually extremely complimentary to your figure. They give you the “V” Shape, essentially making your hips and stomach appear smaller. Think Baywatch, though the women were beautiful in their own right. It was later revealed that it was the swimsuits V shape design that gave them the much wanted hourglass look. I feel it secures my softer bits in place, making me look smoother and thinner in the process. It is like a comfortable everyday version of spanx.
I now have a huge range of bodysuits in my wardrobe. Ranging from basic t-shirts, vests and singlets to the more fashionable looks such as cold shoulders, meshed etc. You can find bodysuits just about anywhere ranging from 5£ (Boohoo) to up in the £1000’s (Balmain). I personally love House of CBwho make some of the best basic bodysuits as well as some very fashionable statement ones.
Now you know my wardrobe secrets! Hope they help you feel more confident in your body.
Even though they may be wobbly in places, these bodies brought our prefect little humans in to the world. And for that they are amazing, no matter what shape!
