Wearing Body-shapers.

Today I'm going to share a few photo's taken during one of my visits to Holland and how I felt in my skin on that day.....

Hubby and I went to Holland for the 2nd time to see the famous Tulip show, which happens around this time of year, each year.....while there I wanted to meet up once again with my Dutch blogger friend, Marcelle....we share the same name, thats how we found each other in blogland.

At the time I had been on and off a few diets....being very strict and then eating everything in sight for a few days....I did manage to lose a little weight....Remember I married at 84kg's ( 185 lbs ) and during this visit 3 years later, my weight was 76kg's. ( 167 lbs ). I really felt a lot thinner at this stage, 20 lbs down...yet still far from happy as I was still overweight compared to the weight I was while teaching...
I remember on this day I was wearing a full *pull me in* body shaper underneath my top and capri pants. I didn't want any lumps or bumps to show around my middle area ~ this body suit keeps all in very nicely and gives one's middle a smooth appearance.
It was a hot day....and I was hot....I had all these extra layers on ~ what we do for vanity.....
I wanted to look * slim * that day....

I no longer wear body shapers.....I love being able to go without, so have given all mine away.


  1. That photo of you by the sea is lovely. Pity you won't be visiting my country this year for the show otherwise we could have met.

    I never wore bodyshapers but the way my belly is now it wouldn't be a bad idea :)

  2. I love your looking back posts! I still have to wear body shapers because of that skin that hangs. I am working hard on getting rid of that!

  3. ah, yes...the body shaper...i have a white and black one that I wear with certain slim fit shirts. Magic! :-)

  4. Funny you blogged about body shapers, i just got new ones today!! I only wear them to work. Losing and gaining weight all my life made for a bunch of gigglies!!! I need them big time!!!

  5. I will say it again - If I didn't know better I wouldn't believe this is really you! Remarkable what you have done!

  6. I've seen the body shapers but never really bought one. I think it is because I was and am too shy to buy one. Shy of what people might think of me buying something like this for me.

  7. Great blog post. I used to be checking continuously this blog and I am impressed! Extremely helpful information
    specially the closing phase :) I deal with such info a lot. I used to be seeking this particular information for a
    very lengthy time. Thanks and good luck.
