No matter how thin you are, you should own a pair of Spanx! Almost every celebrity who walks the red carpet is either wearing one or two of these problem area disguisers to pull off their gorgeous gowns. They come in different colors and styles. You can buy less expensive versions are various stores but for about $20.00 you can get the name brand from Nordstroms or online.
Aren't they for old women? Probably, but it's no secret that every celebrity wears these suckers to help smooth out their figure. Even the 20 somethings. Men probably also think that these are like a push-up bra... misleading. But they don't really change anything about how you accept streamlining your figure.
When do you wear them? Personally, I don't wear them a whole lot mainly because I don't wear a lot of dresses that require them. I usually just like to wear them with tighter dresses or sheer dresses. But you could wear them under anything you want! They really are that comfortable.
I did a whole post on why I love Epsom salts. One of the best things about it is it's ability to reduce swelling and bloat. The idea is that it pulls toxins out of your body like a sauna, minus the sweating. Take an Epsom salt bath every other day leading up to your big event. I've read that it takes two cups of salts and 12 minutes for Epsom salt to do it's thang but I'd hang out in the tub for a while longer and just enjoy. And on top of reducing bloat you will also be exfoliating all over which is a huge plus for dresses that show some skin!
I know this sounds like a stupid piece of advice because I'm not a doctor. But I started adding fiber to my diet every morning with my coffee and I lost three pounds. I'm not saying this will happen for everyone but it really does help cut out the bloat. It's also really healthy for you and some Benefiber comes with extra benefits like heart health. So you can either hike up the fiber volume in your diet a few weeks before your event or just make the healthy everyday change.
