On a Weight Loss Journey? Want to See Immediate Results?

If you're anything like us, you've probably resolved to make some changes this new year.  Most of us start each year with the commitment to improve in some way - Whether it's to drink more water, to get organized, or to strive for more BALANCE in your life, people tend to begin the new year with a renewed spirit and optimism for the future. The most common new years resolution is to lose weight.  Change isn't always easy though, especially when you don't see immediate results from your efforts.    No matter how you accomplish it, losing weight is not easy.  Whether you opt for the traditional diet and exercise route or you've decided that it's time for bariatric surgery (ie adjustable gastric banding, gastric bypass surgery (Roux-en-Y or...

The most common new years resolution is to lose weight.  Change isn't always easy though, especially when you don't see immediate results from your efforts.    No matter how you accomplish it, losing weight is not easy.  Whether you opt for the traditional diet and exercise route or you've decided that it's time for bariatric surgery (ie adjustable gastric banding, gastric bypass surgery (Roux-en-Y or RNY), sleeve gastrectomy, biliopancratic diversion, etc.) weight loss requires a commitment and for most of us, is not at all easy.  To me, losing weight is a journey.  I don't just talk the talk.  I walk the walk.  My own weight loss journey has been a bit of a roller coaster.  At times I'm up.  At times I'm down. At times I'm docked in the station waiting for another "go" moment of inspiration.  Know that regardless of where you are on your personal  journey, you can  feel confident when you wear Slimpressions.  No matter if you've put on a few extra pounds or if you have lost lots of weight and want help smoothing out any loose skin, Slimpressions shapewear is right for you.  There's nothing like a little immediate gratification for your hard work, right?  Check out these Before & After results.  Not sure what product is right for you?  I'd encourage you to check out our Product Selector to help you choose.  We created Slimpressions for the less-than-perfect body.  No matter your body type (straight, pear, spoon, hourglass, top hourglass, inverted triangle, oval or diamond), we have something for you.  Unless, of course, you're Barbie...Slimpressions is real shapewear for real women.

Making Your Weight Loss Goals Public

As we begin another new year, 'tis the season for setting resolutions.  Weight loss, eating right and exercising more are the most popular goals for people each year, however, within weeks (if not days) we tend to fall into our old patterns and let these resolutions slip away.   Studies show that when you make your goals public, you are more likely to stick to them.  Not only do goal-setters have a sense of accountability when they make their goals public, but they also feel supported by others.  We loved this story about how one man is making his weight-loss goals public.   So are you ready to tell the world what your goals are?  If you'd like support from your fellow Slimpressionistas, let us know what your new year's resolutions are (...

There is always a moment during my December shopping frenzy when I finally get exhausted from searching for the perfect gift for each of my loved ones. It’s an amazing feeling to give presents selflessly, however it can be draining. Standing in long lines with babies crying, and hunting down sale items, will push you to the limit. It makes you yearn for some personal relief or therapy. So, why not treat yourself to the gift that will keep you looking slim and “flabuless” all year round. Slimpressions is a patent-pending line of everyday shapewear designed to slim a woman's arms, back, and midriff. It’s a fact of life that many women struggle with flabby arms. Traditional body shapers do not address this troublesome area. Slimpressi...

Slimpressions is a patent-pending line of everyday shapewear designed to slim a woman's arms, back, and midriff. It’s a fact of life that many women struggle with flabby arms. Traditional body shapers do not address this troublesome area. Slimpressions’ flab-u-less slimming garments create the illusion of weight reduction which helps to boost confidence by sculpting the top half of a woman's body. For extra chest support, try the Haves design. It holds larger breasts firmly as you work out. If your chest does not require any compression, try the Have Not's or the Skinny Minis collections. Slimpressions offers seamless torso and arm shapers with gentle compression to smooth and shape “the problem areas”. Treat yourself to a slimmer you athttp://www.slimpressions.com/.

"Our Flab-u-less Slimming garments create an illusion of weight reduction which helps to boost confidence while sculpting the top half of a woman's body."

There are 3 different styles to best fit your needs; The Skinny Minis The Haves, & The Have Nots. Each of which feature the ribbed midriff for great support and found the length to be flattering. I personally tried out The Haves {sorry no personal pictures of me sporting shapewear}
  • Gentle compression smoothes and shapes dreaded "arm flab"
  • Soft cups for comfy chest coverage
  • Ribbed midriff for flab-u-less all-around support
  • Long torso for tucking and layering
  • Tagless comfort
  • Torso that curves where you need it to
  • Mesh armpits for added breathability
I should mention ... when I first tried on my shapewear I was laughing at myself hysterically for quite a while. I didn't read the instructions and just went to put it on like a normal top. I beg of you, do not do this. LOL I'm not afraid to admit it - I looked a fool struggling with it. Contorted and stuck, I finally managed to pick up my invoice realizing my mistake. You are to step INTO it. *sigh* Oh to be a fly on the wall that day... Once I stopped laughing at myself and correctly put it on, I was impressed with how comfortable it felt. Yes! It sucked me in, but it wasn't constricting or uncomfortable in the slightest. I checked myself out in the mirror noting that I didn't have to suck my tummy in myself. Don't judge, you do it too. I think I made a good choice picking The Haves though, I loved how it slimmed my arms. Quite flattering if I do say so myself.

I tried the Skinny-Mini" first, which I wore under a short-sleeved knit shirt, and I loved the results, no muffin top, And I didn't feel like I had to "tuck" my stomach into my jeans! The next day I tried the "Have-Nots" top under a long-sleeved knit shirt, and felt like my top was "loose". It was a great fit, and I didn't notice I had it on the whole day! The last Slimpressions control top garment I tried was the "Haves". While wearing this under a flowy shirt, even my Mother in law asked me if I had lost weight. So I am totally convinced of Slimpressions validity.

Sometimes it doesn’t matter how much exercise we do, eating healthy or just all around taking care of our body, certain parts sometimes sag with age.  Might be your arms, your boobs, something around the mid section or your rump…..or if you’ve had kids you would have answered YES to all of the above.  LOL! Some post pregnant bellies are like a deflated balloon.  Or in my case an inflated, then deflated and inflated and deflated and inflated and well…..half blown up balloon! Slimpressions quickly accepted the opportunity.  When I was asked which style I wanted to try out I was torn.  There are 3 styles and each target a different troubled area, all areas personally have experienced trouble.  The Haves and The Have Nots both ...

Some post pregnant bellies are like a deflated balloon.  Or in my case an inflated, then deflated and inflated and deflated and inflated and well…..half blown up balloon! Slimpressions quickly accepted the opportunity.  When I was asked which style I wanted to try out I was torn.  There are 3 styles and each target a different troubled area, all areas personally have experienced trouble.  The Haves and The Have Nots both target those flabby arms but The Haves have soft cups for comfy chest coverage.   When I received my package, I immediately opened my bag.  I was excited to try out my slim wear. These were the 3 styles:             The Have Nots - Sleevage control top without cleavage compromise The Skinny Minis - Upper body control top with utterly naked arms The Haves - Sleevage plus cleavage control top The Skinny Mini is similar to the shirts I wear most of the time so I chose that one to try out. When I received my package, inside I had all 3 to try.   I was really excited because I really do need some tuck and slim whether it’s just hanging out at home or going out. These shirts are amazing.  I will admit when I first looked at the shirts I thought there was NO WAY I was going to fit in them.  But they stretch.  Now I also wish I had read the “reminder” before trying to throw one on.  LOL! Not sure if you could read that but basically it says to step in to the shape wear. I attempted to put it on over my head…….I just about choked myself. That just goes to show the control the shirts have. I put the shirt on and I loved it. The material is extra soft. The shirt smoothed out all my troubled areas.  All 3 shirts would work well under a t-shirt and jeans or dress pants and shirt or a beautiful evening dress.  They are lightweight, you can hardly tell you are wearing one.  You don’t have to worry that wearing the slim wear under your regular clothes will be uncomfortable.  The shirts can be tucked in to any pair of pants/shorts/skirts to smooth out those “love handles”. “Enter Slimpressions. Our flab-u-lessTM slimming garments create an illusion of weight reduction which helps to boost confidence while sculpting the top half of a woman’s body I am pleasantly plump right now as I still have some weight to lose and the slim wear made all my “round edges” not so noticeable.   I can’t say enough about how great they are.  Before I tried these out I was a little skeptical that they would actually make a difference.  I have tried other brands and they didn’t have the control that the Slimpressions have.   These shirts really do “slim” your figure.  The slim wear comes in several different colors: Nude, White, Black and Chocolate.  Great colors to choose from to go under any attire.
