"Like my body?"
It's been a long time since I've slurred that famous Anna Nicole Smith line. Six years to be exact, and rightfully so!
Six years ago this March my first daughter, Isabella, was conceived. By April, my belly was already poking out.
Then two years ago I had my second daughter, Gabriella.
Enter the everlasting (Post Partum) Mommy Pooch
Since the summer of 2010, I've been a stay-at-home mom and part of my attire each day (when I'm not wrangling a vacuum cleaner looking ever so amazing in pajamas) are pairs of faded yoga pants or sweats.
Hot right? I know!
I get away with it, but some days I feel drab and just want to step it up. Just a little, nothing fancy.
So when Lysse Leggings called with an opportunity to review a pair of leggings, I was delighted to choose the Perfect Palazzo pant! I used to favor palazzo's back in 1995 and they are by far the most comfortable design ever.
My regular yoga pants have a low cut waist, so there isn't any stomach coverage or support at all. Pre baby days that was fine, but post baby days...not so cute after meals. You know what I mean?
So, the benefit in wearing the Lysse palazzo pant is in the waist. It has tummy control, so the waistline is high enough that any "mommy pooch" is minimized or disappears completely!
What is also important to me is not only the fit, but how I feel. In the Lysse pants I feel very comfortable. The material is light, and also very flexible. I hate wearing anything too bulky or stiff. I also hate being wrapped in clothing that is too tight.
There are a lot of options to choose from so if I want to wear pencil skirts with control Lysse has two designs. I'm a huge fan of pencil skirts! The last time I wore one though was the day I announced my pregnancy in 2009. There is no give in the waist.
Lysse to the rescue!
I'm really excited about being introduced to Lysse, because so many of the pants at my favorite stores don't flatter or flatten the stomach. It's always nice to have a go to brand of pants in different styles for all of my needs.
It's also nice that they have a control top tank. The other part of my daily stay-at-home mom ensemble.
After having my palazzo pants taken up about an inch, I'm surely going to wear them out (as in never take them off!)
They're perfect for my lifestyle.
