So, I wore spanx the other day...

And I felt miserable!
What a self mutilating, skin cutting, rib jabbing piece of undergarment. Wonder if it was invented by a man? Save that for another blog post!

As much as I was happy to feel svelte (I pronounce this shvelt) in my dress at a work conference, every bathroom break was a nightmare and sitting all day in my asphyxiating shorts was killer.

So the question is, why am I still planning on wearing them? Because for now, it's my only choice :(

The good news is, not for long! I have recently discovered a new line of fashionable/medical hosiery and undergarment line called "Solidea". They have nylons, shorts, tummy tuckers, you name it! The best part is that they are compression wear that work better than spanx. The reason is, they are medically controlled to hold you in the right places and not just cut off your circulation. It gradually compresses and doesn't induce the muffin top effect.

I can't wear any other type of nylons anymore, because these ones actually stay up! Oh, and by the way, compression in your legs will give you more energy and help with any vein issues too. Some even have anti-bacterial silver fibbers to help keep you fresh, and a wave technology that helps massage the cellulite out of your legs! Bonus.

Because I am a huge believer in this line, I have decided to become a rep for Solidea products!

My first item on the agenda is getting a pair of tummy tucking shorts and then cutting up my spanx. I am ready to share pictures with you once I test out the new shorts!

I am thinking of hosting a "Solidea" party where a bunch of girls can get together and check out some of the products. They are not very cheap, but they will last up to 6 months and are pretty strong, so no running into any runs in the near future!

I'd love to know your undergarment troubles, please do share.

In the meantime, here is the new Solidea blog I am working on:

Let me know what you think!
