Mitigating the Mommy ‘Spread’
With a few Christmas gift certificates burning a hole in my sweatpants, I ran out to the mall last week to find myself a new Stacy and Clinton-worthy wardrobe. This was me making good on my New Year’s resolution: to dress stylishly and look my best.
Arriving at the mall was exhilarating. I grabbed several cute pieces from one of my favourite stores and headed to the fitting rooms. I was not ready for what I was about to see.
The Muffin Top. Oh, I’d heard about it, but never really noticed on myself so much because, well, I’d been living in sweat pants and stretchy pants since my youngest was born. Elastic was my friend.
Needless to say, I didn’t come home with a single new piece of clothing, but I did come back with something even more valuable: another resolution. To wear more Spanx!
