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...
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 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 (...

The Dirty Shirt

I had the great opportunity recently to try out some Slimpressions products and I love them. I will admit my body has been through the ringer after three kids and Slimpressions helped me to feel more confident when I get dressed to go out. Slimpressions was started by sister-in-laws, Amy Pedersen and Jennifer Daniels. Admittedly, these two moms needed a solution to tackle their own flabby, flappy arms. 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. Many women, regardless of shape and size,  struggle with flabby arms, but traditional body shapers on the market do not address this troublesome area. Enter Slimpressions.

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. Many women, regardless of shape and size,  struggle with flabby arms, but traditional body shapers on the market do not address this troublesome area. Enter Slimpressions. 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. The three different styles to choose from, The Haves, The Have Nots and The Skinny Minis: The Haves:
  • 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
  • Seamless torso that curves where you need it to
  • Mesh armpits for added breathability
The Have Nots:
  • Gentle compression smoothes and shapes dreaded “arm flab”
  • Scooped way-below-the-neckline for superior chest promotion… B.Y.O.B (bring your own bra)
  • Ribbed midriff for flab-u-less ™  all-around support
  • Long torso for tucking and layering
  • Tagless comfort
  • Seamless torso that curves where you need it to
  • Mesh armpits for added breathability
The Skinny Minis:
  • Adjustable spaghetti straps for a little lift when you need it
  • Soft cups for comfy chest coverage
  • Ribbed midriff for flab-u-less ™ all-around support
  • Long torso for tucking or layering
  • Seamless torso that curves where you want it to
  • Tagless comfort
I can’t say enough good stuff about these products. They work well and make me feel a lot better about my arm flab. You will find that the Slimpressions line of products helps in a comfortable, fitting way, and not in a binding way like other products. I recommend them to everyone who may need a little help in this area.

Tried it Tuesday – Slimpressions

I am going to try to bring you an in-depth review of a product every Tuesday.  My product today is  Slimpressions.  This is an undergarment shapewear that is supposed to make you look slimmer.  Yay!  There are 3 differrent Slimpressions to choose from: Skinny Minis - This is a camisole that gives you upper body control ($58 The Haves - This one slims your arms (you know…the flab that flaps when you wave), upper body, and pushes your ta-ta’s up to give you a little more cleavage($72) The Have-Nots - This slims your upper arms, upper body but scoops down below your ta-ta’s to let the real deal show for themselves($72) When my package arrived from Slimpressions I was super excited!

When my package arrived from Slimpressions I was super excited! I ripped it open and pulled out 3 of the littlest pieces of fabric that I have seen since my girls were teeny-tiny. Uh-oh…how was I going to fit into one of these? Maddie laughed at the thought! They looked really short too…I hate wearing a cami that keeps riding up. I looked them over, read the directions - you have to step in to them, then slide them up. Seriously? I checked the size…yep, they sent the right size. Here goes nothing….I wiggled the Skinny Mini up and adjusted it into place. Guess what? It fit perfectly! Nice and long (it actually went down to my behind) and it felt like it was holding everything into place.  The true test would be wearing it for a while. Yesterday I put on the Have-Not to wear. This one has sleeves that go down to your elbows. I put it on and wondered if I would really be comfortable in it all day long. I liked that it felt like it was making me stand up straighter, but was worried that it would feel constricting after a while. I pulled my jeans on over it and was floored…they were very loose. The Slimpression actually made my jeans one size too big!! I’m not kidding…seriously. After wearing it for about an hour I actually forgot that I had it on and never gave it a second thought…until I received a compliment. I had two people ask me if I had lost weight, and one person tell me that my boobs looked bigger!! Again, seriously. Can you believe it? I’m sold! They are seamless, have mesh armpits, and truly hide your muffin-top.  I couldn’t even figure out where it put mine…I expected a little roll to pop out of the bottom of it…nope, it was gone! Here are pictures of them - The Halves, The Have-Not, and the Skinny Mini.  This is good stuff.

The Glitz and the Glamour of the Undies

Ahh the glitz and the glamour of awards shows!  Like the many celebs that donned our slim shaper this season, we plan to wear Slimpressions when the winners of the 2010 Undie Awards are announced in a few short weeks. It's more than a cliche.  It truly is an honor to be in the running.  We've worked hard to create a premium line of body slimmers that exceed expectations.  Even though it took us longer than we planned to launch our original designs (three years in fact, but who's counting?), we're proud that we took the time to get it right in our shape clothing line.  We asked a variety of women to comment on each version and we're glad we invested the time and money necessary  to perfect our women's shapewear and to create solutions that ...

How To Dress Thinner – Tip #23

The key to dressing to give the illusion of being thinner than you actually are begins as so many things do...with the foundation. We HIGHLY recommend having a professional bra fitting.  As Oprah revealed several years ago on The Oprah Winfrey show, a bra that fits correctly can actually make you look ten pounds thinner (depending on the size of your "girls").  Many of our retailers do professional bra fittings so please check out our store locator for a location nearest you.  It's well worth it! Of course, slim shapers is a MUST when wanting to look skinnier than you actually are.  There's not a day we don't wear some combination of Slimpressions body shapers.  We expanded the line with slimming solutions for every woman, regardless of her...

I’ll admit it. This video moved me.

Imagine my surprise when someone from "Team Slim" forwarded me a video that an amazing woman posted on YouTube recently.  Julie, who has worked so hard to lose a lot of weight, has been dealing with excess skin as a result.  She won a Slimpressions body shaper at a recent event and surprised us with the unsolicited video review.  (That video is featured at the bottom of our home page.
