        Are you among the ranks of moms who experience endless frustration trying to regain their pre-pregnancy bellies? Whether your child is six months or six years old and beyond, regaining your figure and your self-confidence after childbirth can be downright difficult.

        Diet and exercise are essential, but sometimes you need a little boost. These mom bloggers tried on The Almighty Cincher by AMIA and experienced incredible results! Here are their stories:

        Manhattan mom Bryce from The Luxury Spot writes in “New Mom Essential for Every Stage” lists the Almighty Cincher as an essential item for new moms:

        “Consider it a mommy corset that you wear around the house, while grocery shopping, breast feeding, whatever… It requires no real effort, and doctors have long suggested corseting to help train the uterus to more rapidly return to its upright and original position (with its tray table also stowed).”

        Sunny from Vegan Beauty Review shares her personal success in “The Corset Diet: Does it Work?”:

        “OK, this is the part where I tell you how utterly smitten I am with the Cincher. As soon as I put it on, I looked MAD FOIN – seriously, I looked teeny tiny, and every piece of clothing I tried on while wearing it looked super flattering. It gave me a delicious hourglass shape, like va va voom to the max!”

        Ilaria from AKAMom writes about every mom’s battle in “The Return of the Waistline!”

            Ahead of the Curves: New York Fashion Week runway debuts shapewear

            02.14.2014-Design

            This year’s New York Fashion Week kicked off with Spanx taking over the runway. Models strutted their shapers up and down the runway, showing off boy shorts, Wonderbras, and other shapewear. Some fashion and news sites have shown shock that traditional models were chosen to market shapewear, but this event goes to show that shapewear is for anyone regardless of body type. Movie stars love their shapers, and now so does the couture scene.

            This comes as a surprise to some, but shapewear has been an important part of a polished look for a long time. Shapers can be used to provide a tuck and lift, but can also be used to create a smooth, fresh canvas for clothes. It’s like applying primer to your face before applying makeup. Shapewear was the best kept secret in Hollywood and among the fashion elite, but not any more. Designers, actors, celebrities, musicians, models, and fashionistas alike are publicly recognizing that shapewear makes an outfit pop, and has its own place in fashion.

            Lingerie and intimate lines have long had a presence in the fashion world and now shapewear is boldly joining them on the runway. Hourglass Angel was ahead of the curve, selling beautiful shapewear for every body and lifestyle for years. Shop our extensive inventory of elegant and comfortable thigh, waist, butt, leg, and tummy shapers – from the runway to your home, before they were even on the runway!

              Squeem Review: The Squeem Compression Panty Shaper Delivers on its Promises

              Squeem-Final-Review

               

              A few months ago, I began to think about my New Year’s resolution and how I would go about achieving my goals. I have never kept a resolution – so this year I started planning early and thought of practical and realistic methods to achieve what I want. Right around that time, I invested in my first shaper. My New Year’s resolutions include changing my eating habits, develop a fun and productive exercise regimen, and simply feel better!

              I stand at 5’3”,weigh 135 pounds, and consider my trouble area to be around my belly. I decided to incorporate an abdominal shaper into my plan simply because it provides instant results. Select shapers contribute to long-term weight loss results, and the only reason I didn’t have one yet was due to a ridiculous notion that it is for older women.

              I selected a best-selling garment from Hourglass Angel, the Squeem Compression Panty Shaper. This is a maximum compression shaper infused with latex, and the inside is lined with cotton so it makes the shaper very comfortable. It’s a step-through garment that I will say is difficult to get on the first time, and can even leave you feeling that you ordered a size too small a size. That feeling goes away quickly as you become accustomed to the compression.

              The Compression Panty Shaper really feels comfortable and fitted while you’re actually wearing it, snug like a glove. My first day of ever wearing a shaper was Thanksgiving Day while I ate a large meal with family. Best or worst day to try it? I cannot complain, I must say it did not interfere with my indulgences, but did help me control the amount that I ate. The compression of the garment helped me in that it left me feeling full once I had ate a sufficient amount.

              The Compression Panty Shaper by Squeem was designed with adjustable and removable straps for extra support, and the whole thing stays in place no matter what I did in it (cooking, working, cleaning, shopping, dancing, walking the dog, and everything else). The underbust design gently pushes up the bottom of my bra and gives me the lift of wearing a pointed bra without the pointy shape. Otherwise, it is completely invisible under clothes so the shaper is my little secret. I look naturally leaner and toner!

              Simply put, Squeem delivers on its promises! I wore the Compression Panty Shaper as instructed, about 8-10 hours a day and my waist has reduced by 1.75 inches. This is due to garment increasing your thermal activity that helps you burn off extra calories. I did not feel hot or sweaty what so ever, which was a concern of mine. The Compression Panty Shaper pulls in the waist and flattens the tummy, which helped me keep my abdomen engaged all day working my core muscles. It also corrected my posture, which is not only for appearances, but relieves back pain. I feel stronger and more confident, and it shows!

              I feel confident about my resolutions this time because I have already invested in a helping hand to get me where I want. – M. James

                    The Hourglass Within: Curves For Every Body Shape

                    A couple of posts on our Facebook page from this week sparked an interesting discussion. A study recently made the rounds in the press showing that there were far more shapes of women than often thought. Notably (and hysterically), broccoli and butternut squash were added to the list. It’s worth mentioning that we have always known that women come in sizes and shapes a lot more complicated than apple and pear. It’s also worth noting that no matter what shape of woman you are now, you contain within you the potential for an hourglass… your own special hourglass.

                    We wanted to share an example of this idea of the unique hourglass. Check out this image of Nicki Minaj. Nicki is a natural pear shape. Her bust and waist are proportionally small compared to her hips and bottom: the classic beautiful pear. However, her shapewear inspired bodysuit (and, we suspect, cincher) enhance her figure, while following the lead of her natural body type. And this brings home a point that is crucial when talking about shapewear. Nicki isn’t changing who she is in this image. She is amplifying it. You needn’t completely erase your natural shape (whatever that is) to highlight your hourglass curves. Whatever your shape is, there is a body shaper that is perfect to find your beautiful curves and show them off.

                    And that’s just what we’re here to do!

                      Our SHE-roes!

                      In March, Hourglass Angel proudly honors Women’s History Month. With our commitment to supporting and serving women everywhere, this is a special time for us. In celebration, we’d like to share a few of our favorite women with you. While they all come from different backgrounds and have very different sets of achievements, these women inspire us each day to be greater and that’s what this month is all about.

                      Michelle Obama: Raised on the south side of Chicago, first lady, Michelle Obama, has earned the admiration of women around the globe, in addition to, not because of her marriage to the President of the United States. A Princeton and Harvard alumni, Mrs. Obama was already a brilliant attorney, advocate and community organizer when she met Barack Obama. Never satisfied to stand idly next to her husband as built his political career, Mrs. Obama has been an ardent voice for poverty elimination around the globe, women’s rights and public health. She continues her political and community service to our nation with her healthy lifestyle programs and remains one of the most admired women on the globe.

                      Sara Blakely: This youngest female self-made billionaire and Forbes covergirl has her own vision and perseverance to thank for her incomprehensible success. Starting with one simple idea and a whole lot of elbow grease, this former Disneyland employee, turned her billion dollar idea into a brand that has found fans in women around the world. But Sara didn’t stop there. She continued her legacy as a maverick, retaining ownership of 100% of of the company. That risky move made her a billionaire several times over and one of the richest women in the world. Today she continues her work as a businessperson and philanthropist, encouraging women to follow their dreams by her example.

                      Maya Angelou: Dr. Angelou’s unforgettable reading at the inauguration of President Bill Clinton was a transformative moment for the public art in the United States. While that morning cemented her as a national treasure in the minds of many, her legacy far exceeds that special event. Memoirist, poet, speaker and activist, her work tackles such difficult subjects as race, class, family, gender and age with deftness and beauty. Her honors include a National Book Award nomination, a Pulitzer Prize nomination, a Tony Award nomination, three Grammys for her spoken word albums, the longest-running record on The New York Times Paperback Nonfiction Bestseller List, service on two presidential committees, the National Medal of Arts, the Lincoln Medal, the Presidential Medal of Freedom and over thirty honorary degrees.

                      Aretha Franklin: The undisputed Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin has been called the Greatest Singer of All Time and the the ninth greatest artist of all time by Rolling Stone magazine. She has taken home a whopping 18 Grammys and two honorary Grammys. With a staggering 20 No.1 singles on the Billboard R&B Singles Chart and two No.1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, she boasts a grand total of 45 Top 40 hits. Between 1967 and 1982, she had earned more number one R+B albums than any other and was the first female artist to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In the 1960’s, Franklin’s powerful voice became the sound of the burgeoning civil rights movement and she often joined Dr. Martin Luther King, singing at rallies. And of course, her 2009 performance at the inauguration of President Barack Obama was an unforgettable moment for all who watched, as the Queen of Soul once again became the soundtrack to a pivotal moment in American history.
