Those Dead Sea lotion salesmen at the mall never stood a chance. My husband hates shopping with me anywhere a salesman is involved. I interrogate them. I dismiss their gimmicky claims. I despise fads (mostly diets). I am the most skeptical consumer you will ever meet.
Why, then does this product seem so attractive to me?
Ladies, I'd like to introduce you to the HipSlimmer--designed to shrink your hips back down to size, or even smaller, after a pregnancy. No worries, I haven't jumped on the pregnancy band wagon just yet (but when I do this blog may need a new name..."pregnancy shaped thoughts" anyone?). It's just that I tend to over-read, over-prepare and over-analyze most everything I do (future pregnancies and children included).
There are many variations of this on the market.
Most notable is the Belly Bandit, which comes with rave reviews from real-life celebrity moms like Jessica Alba and Kourtney Kardashian who actually designed the high-fashion model depicted below.
I'm sure all you mom's out there are rolling your eyes and wishing me luck. I would be too. Usually. Unfortunately, I think there is just enough vanity in me to give it a go.
What have I got to lose? Future baby belly? Hopefully. Social self-respect? Yes.
Even if I do give-in and try these, I will never admit it publicly and I will definitely not be sporting this accessory in waking daylight hours for all to see.
Isn't it kind of oxymoronic to wear something this hideous while trying to improve your looks?
I'm not that desperate.
