Have you ever heard of Ana Caban? She is a pilates instructor, and I bought a couple of her pilates dvds a few years back. More on that later. Anyway, she has a website called La Buena Life and she does great givaways. I won the giveaway for a Blush Topless Undershirt!
Do you ever put on a shirt that is just a teeny bit too short, and it does this? I'm sorry, friends, but after being pregnant with an almost-11-pound baby, no amount of pilates in the world will make my stomach presentable. So I CAN'T STAND IT when my shirt pops up.
Ana sent me this cool thingie that isn't a shirt, it's just a tube that goes under your shirt at your waist and it looks like you have another shirt on that is longer. It is sooooo soft and now I don't worry about my stomach popping out. You can wear them if you're pregnant, too.
Here's another picture, from their website. It feels good to wear it.
Look at this cute card I got with my gift, and a handwritten note too. How nice!
Now, about the pilates ... I started with the beginning pilates dvd when I had plantar fasciitis so bad that I preferred to walk with crutches (yes, this is true). I just couldn't believe the muscles that started popping out after doing this workout for just a couple weeks. Zero impact on your feet and legs. And let me tell you, strengthening your core is something that is highly underrated. It makes you look great, you have better posture, it helps you to be better at other types of exercise at every level, it helps you with injuries, and I'm sure the list is longer. I highly recommend it.
Thanks, Ana Caban! You Rock!!
