Slimpressions Inspiration Favorites


People ask me all the time, what made you buy the company Slimpressions? I nearly cried when I tried on Slimpressions shapewear products for the first time. Not only is it the best quality on the market today, but I never would have thought it would have fit me especially at 340lbs. This, along with the inspiration of a few amazing people who inspired me, I decided to begin my own weight loss journey and in the first 9 months lost over 100lbs!

I knew I wanted to make a difference in women’s lives. Slimpressions was a perfect fit for me and just felt like home.  I wake up every morning with a deep desire to help women feel confident and beautiful, encouraging them to find their inner strength. Each day I try to find a way to inspire them just as I was inspired.  We must truly love ourselves in order to find the riches of true happiness.
