"I often told Amy she had the gift of wisdom, knowing just what to say at all the right times.  We couldn’t think of a better way to honor both her legacy as the brand's originator and a worthy recipient who sparks the same endurance, excitement, and passion as Amy.  At Slimpressions, we want to show our community we care and promote positivity in everything we do. Our message is simple … #iamstrong, #iamconfident, #iambeautiful, #iamloved, #igotthis.  This is who we are. This is what makes Slimpressions different" "I am so thankful to receive Slimpressions shapewear as part of my WLSFA Grant. I look forward to living a new healthier life and with Slimpressions, a more confident life as I follow my weight loss surgery journey." replied Alice Patterson. Alice is the 22nd grant recipient of the WLSFA and the first recipient of the "Carnie Wilson Pay It Forward" grant to allow the WLSFA to both gift Alice with the medical treatment she needs and to honor the fundraising efforts of Carnie Wilson on behalf of the foundation. Slimpressions will continue to recognize one recipient each year at the WLSFA conference who exemplifies strength and motivates others along the way.  Not only will the recipient receive Slimpressions shapewear products to wear, but a donation to the WLSFA will be made by Slimpressions in the recipient's name. Antonia Namnath, President of WLSFA, said, “The WLSFA has had a long partnership with Slimpressions, and it all started with Amy and her amazing products that benefit our community.  We are thrilled to have this grant from Dawn and Slimpressions as it helps our grant recipients and our charity fund more grants each year.” About Slimpressions As seen in O Magazine, InStyle, Redbook, Dr. Oz and more, Slimpressions has been touted as a premium line of shapewear designed to comfortably slim a woman’s body and give her the illusion of weight loss.

Slimpressions first hit the scene in 2008 with the launch of the company’s patented shapewear designs developed to control arm jiggle while smoothing and shaping traditional areas. “I’ll never forget when Amy (Pedersen) called me after her infamous ‘bingo arm’ moment, asking me to Google arm flab shapewear so she could order several products immediately. After several searches, we couldn’t find anything on the market. Inspired by the opportunity, we started our quest to make the perfect arm shaper” said Jennifer Daniels, Slimpressions’ co-founder. “My interest in Slimpressions has continued to grow since I first learned of the company last year” said Dawn Hurlebaus. For me, it wasn’t just about the firm’s superior line of body shapers. Certainly, the products’ comfort and fit does not compare to any others I’ve tried. I really loved the founders’ mission to boost women’s confidence, particularly women who had weight loss surgery. Having been on a weight loss journey myself, I appreciated first-hand how important that is.” “Dawn impressed us from the moment we met her” said Amy Pedersen, co-founder of Slimpressions. “Her enthusiasm is simply contagious. She exudes positivity, a trait we value, wherever she goes. Dawn quickly moved from a self-proclaimed ‘raving fan’ to our Director of Possibilities. She’s been working with us for almost a year behind the scenes doing just that – diving into the business and opening the doors for new possibilities with the company. When she expressed an interest in taking over operating management, we knew Slimpressions would be in excellent hands.’ Terms of the agreement are confidential.

Intimate Apparel Business

Uncovered, In the News Industry-Wide Launches A new women's shapewear line called Slimpressions made its debut at CURVENY in February. Unlike many traditional shapers, which focus on the waist, hips, and thighs, Slimpressions shapewear is designed to slim flabby underarms as well as unsightly back fat rolls. Creators Amy Pedersen and Jennifer Daniels introduced two primary lines: the Haves and the Have-Nots. Each line caters to women of different bust sizes, offering cut-out tops for the Have-Nots to avoid minimizing breasts, while the Haves offer fuller coverage and support for bustier women. Both styles include an undershirt-type garment that the wearer steps into, which smoothes arms with a half-sleeve, and smoothes back and waist with full-cov...
