This whole exercise and diet thing just isn’t “natural” to me. I have a difficult time trying to remember JUST how I lived when I was a size 2/4…oh yeah, I took dance class FIVE (5) days a week. I spent a good portion of my life (college major: dance therapy) either in dance class, teaching, or on the stage (along with acting), so I could eat whatever I wanted and never gain an ounce. My lifestyle changed when I had Ben and the pounds crept on slowly. MENOPAUSE was the real killer, as my metabolism slowed to a crawl and my energy level fell as well.
It’s a struggle, but if I’m going to get out there and FORCE myself to become fit again, I’m going to LOOK GOOD DOING IT, so when I work out I cheat a little and wear workout gear with TUMMY CONTROL like these Miracles Slimming Capri Leggings by Marika. The truth is that I’ve been wearing Marika since the 80’s (when I was still dancing), as they came out with a line of dancewear that was a little different than the usual.
The Marika Miracles Slimming Capri Legging with Tummy Control contains inner PowerMesh on the side panel and inner waist band, creating the ultimate compression, core support and slimming. Contoured curved seams at the back help contribute to a more flattering figure, and breathable gusset lining ensures that the material stays dry before, during and after a workout. The Slimming Capri Legging with Tummy Control retails for $60
I appreciate the Elasta-Tight Dry-Wick fabric that keeps the moisture away from my body and gives me a better shape even BEFORE my workout. Looking good is half the battle, as I get discouraged when I work out and look disheveled, and these Marika Miracles Slimming Capris make me feel better about my body as I watch myself in that BIG MIRROR at the gym.
The design team has created contoured curved seams at the back which help contribute to a more flattering figure, and breathable gusset lining ensuring that the material stays dry before, during and after a work. I wish regular clothing designers would think of enhancements like this!
