Sucking in My Postpartum Tummy with Jockey and Rachel Zoe

NOTE: This post contains multiple up-close photos of my postpartum muffin top. You have been warned.

So here’s the thing. After giving birth to baby Sawyer almost 3 months ago, my entire midsection area has been…

How shall I put it?

Lumpy.

Squishy.

Saggy.

Bloated.

It certainly hasn’t helped that nursing has resulted in a feeling of extreme hunger at nearly all hours of the day, and my mass consumption of carbohydrate-rich food hasn’t done my waistline any favors.

And I’m tired.

Too tired from middle-of-the-night feedings and adjusting to life as a momma with more than one kiddo to find the energy needed to get off my bum and get the exercise I need.

But I’m trying to cut myself some slack.

I’m trying to listen to my body.

Give it the rest I feel it’s asking for.

Allow it to recuperate after a very long and exhausting pregnancy and equally exhausting c-section and hernia surgery.

But in the meantime, while I’m resting…

it would be nice if I could fit into my clothes…

without having to invest in an entirely new wardrobe.

It would be nice if I could get that top button of my favorite jeans to close,

or that zipper on my sleek skirt to go all the way to the top,

or if a view of my profile didn’t make me look like I was still three months pregnant.

Yep, that would be nice.

And this desire to have some semblance of my former pre-pregnancy body back is why I nearly jumped for joy when I was given the opportunity to review a brand new line of shapewear and intimates from Jockey and Rachel Zoe. Jockey and Rachel Zoe partnered together and announced a selection of curated products as Rachel Zoeís ìMajor Must Havesî from Jockey. It was like Christmas morning when my package arrived. Included for me to try were:

  • The Strappy Tank, with a 3-panel design to smooth out bulges and love handles
  • The Slip Shaper, with a cotton spandex bodice designed to wear under dresses and skirts
  • A pair of Tummy Shorts, designed to eliminate the dreaded muffin top
  • And a pair of Boyshorts and Bikini Briefs

I can’t believe I’m about to do this, but here it goes…An up-close and personal look at my postpartum baby belly (stretch marks included).

Yep, that’s a zoomed-in pic of my postpartum muffin top. And those are the adorable and incredibly comfortable boy shorts by Jockey, in purple with light lavender accent lace. Below is the after…after I slipped on the Tummy Short. My waistline easily shrunk as soon as I put these on. And the best part: I didn’t feel like I was suffocating, like I was being squeezed alive. Nope, I could actually breathe in these…and bend over…and pick up my babies with ease and comfort. The material is a soft cotton spandex that makes the Tummy Short both comfortable and effective at sucking in my muffin top–because as mom, I need to be able to move around while also feeling my best. Next I tried on the Strappy Tank, perfect for wearing under my everyday t-shirts. Because I’m nursing, this shirt was a particular favorite. The tummy portion was tight and slimming while the chest portion was loose and comfortable—that way I had easy access to nurse at a moment’s notice without having to remove my entire undershirt. Not to mention, there is nothing less flattering on me than a completely smashed-down chest. Lastly, I tried on the Slip Shaper, which also has a cotton spandex bodice…and I fell in love. I wear a dress to church every single Sunday, and as of late, I’ve only had about three dresses in rotation while I wait for the others to fit again. Once I tried on this piece and saw how it smoothed out so many of my “bulges,” I instantly knew of a handful of dresses that I could start wearing again. And Ben always loves when I find a reason to NOT go shopping for more clothes. The bottom of the Slip Shaper has additional spandex so that it will never roll up while you wear it, another must for a mom on the go. And now to another belly shot, and my favorite pair of jeans. I love these jeans, but a bit of muffin top and love-handle spillage has prevented me from wearing them since I had my baby. Not any more, again thanks to the Tummy Short. Here are a few of the qualities that stood out to me regarding the new Jockey shapewear:

  • The pieces didn’t dig into or gouge my skin.
  • The items I received reminded me that what you wear underneath your clothes is just as important as what you wear on the outside. This shapewear helped me create a smooth foundation to build my outfit upon.
  • Curve-control makes me a happier person, a better wife and a more fun momma–bottom line.
  • And did I mention the fabric was actually breathable?!

If you would like to flatten your muffin top and smooth out your lumps like me, then you can find Rachelís selection of Jockey†shapewear and intimates now in a variety of major retailers, Jockey outlet stores, and on Jockey.com.

  1. woo woo girl you seriously look so good!!! I know you don’t feel like a rockstar, but you totally are!! Love that you feel great in these products too :)

  2. Liza Glick says:

    I wish every day I was wearing shapewear – would help with bumps and lumps! :)

  3. Before I found shapewear, I wore a great tight black dress, and felt great in it…until I saw some pictures and realized that I needed something to smooth things out! I can’t wait to try the Jockey products after I give birth, gives me some hope to getting my shape back a little quicker!

  4. Just about everyday! After 2 kids it is for sure needed and I have yet to find any I like.

  5. Leigh Anne says:

    I’m so impressed you showed your post-baby tummy…..and as a result, I’m sold on the shape-wear. I’m 20 mos post-baby #3 and I could use any of those. They look fantastic on you! Thanks so much for the review :) …I wish I had be wearing my shapewear when I was 3 mos post-baby and I couldn’t fit into any of my pants!

  6. Oh I swear I feel like I need shapewear every day! I just had baby #3 2 months ago and although I know how long and how much work it takes for my body to bounce back, my hormones and tiredness make exercising hard and so I don’t feel great about myself! Thanks for the review on this stuff!

  7. I wish I would have found something like that before my brother’s wedding last year. I bought a spanx type top w/o trying it on…man alive, was I miserable at the wedding!
    Heck, my “baby” turns four this month. I still have a muffin top. Darn cupcakes….

  8. Girl, you look awesome! I also had a c-section with my first and it took closer to six months before I had my prebaby belly back. You’ll get there! :)

  9. katrina garcia says:

    I have been fighting my weight gain/loss for the past four years since I had my son. I applaud you for showing your post-baby tummy. You are an inspiration to all women. We are women, we have babies, most of us get stretch marks, and most of us deal with weight problems. and it’s okay. :) because we have made beautiful children and brought them into this world to share their innocence smiles and laughter with everyone!

    I have a couple of shapewears but i feel suffocated! They are so tight they hurt my back and I have these awful love handles :( i haven’t found a shapewear yet to hide those. hopefully i win the the gift card, if not I will def look into purchasing this product!

  10. The # on the scale is the same as it was the day I came home from the hospital 3 months ago! My eating habits are mostly to blame but I feel like I need shapewear daily!!!

  11. Thank you so much for this post! I just bought a pair of skinnies that are not muffin to friendly. I’m off to get some of these shapers!! On a side note: my “baby” is almost three. Lol!

  12. Ahhh, its nice to see that other people are going through the same thing :) Well, not nice that you feel like you have a muffin top but good to know that everyone doesn’t bounce back after just a few months. Every time I go into a dressing room with multiple mirrors, I wish I was wearing some kind of constricting shapewear, so the many angles wouldn’t remind me of my lumps and bumps. After I leave a fitting room, I am almost always more self conscious than when I went in. Sometimes I blame things looking terrible on the mirrors :) There are certain stores I like to shop at, ALL BECAUSE their lighting and mirrors in the fitting rooms make me look better :) Love your post, you are awesome.

  13. I’d love to wear shapewear on a regular basis if I could only find some that is comfortable!

  14. I wear shapewear once in a while, for very special occasions where I know photos will be taken, but if I could find something *comfortable*, I would wear it every day!!

  15. This is an awesome giveaway. I could use a little help with the muffin top sometimes!

  16. Betsy Conn says:

    Amazing stuff!
    I wish I had the shape wear for a friends wedding. I wasn’t quite ready to announce #5 was on his way and could have used a little help hiding it. My body has changed alot, especially after twins. Everything has moved!!

  17. I wish I had this to wear when I was in my cousins wedding 2 months after I had my baby! Would have made me feel a lot better!

  18. laura wood says:

    Is it possible for you to provide a link to each product? I checked the Jockey site and the only ones I can find are cut like shorts, below the navel rather than above the belly like the ones you’re wearing. I’d really love to order some, I just can’t find them? Thank you!

  19. You are a brave woman! I wish I had been wearing shape wear when we got married. My bc made me bloat a lot even though I had only been taking it for three weeks …two inches in my waist in three weeks. I had an empire waist dress so in a few of the photos I look a little bit pregnant haha.

  20. Good for you for showing those pictures! :) You’re brave! I love it! I have two little boys (15 months apart) and the ‘ol stomach just doesn’t look the way it used too, haha! Unfortunately, I could use these every day – with every outfit! ;(

  21. Holy cow…I am definitely considering buying these! My 11 months post-partum body still needs it. I definitely could have used shapewear during my husband’s Bible school graduation this last spring (still looking pregnant is not so glamorous 6 months after birth) :)

  22. Oh man when don’t I wish I had been wearing shape wear! Ever since having my son I have had the same problems and feelings about my post baby tummy section. I would love to win and be able to try some!

  23. I had a baby 4 weeks ago so i need shapewear 24 hours day much less when i go out in public.

  24. Shayla Alvarez says:

    I feel ya! I’m 3 years postpartum and still have the pudgy stomach. It would be excellent to win these items!

  25. Ummm how about right now! I have some weight to lose and while I did find The. perfect. Jeans recently, it’s the extra bulge that makes me sad. Sad that the vision in my head doesnt match the image I see in the mirror!
    Jackie

  26. I wish I would have been wearing shapers at my friend’s wedding. At a size 14, I was easily the largest girl there, and my bridesmaid’s spandexy dress was definitely not flattering! haha… definitely don’t look at those pictures – ever.

  27. Renee Rasmussen says:

    I’m like u…every Sunday I need a body shaper!

  28. I just welcomed my 3rd little man 2 months ago. Eating well, working out, but my pants still don’t fit right! I’d love to give theses a try.

  29. I think you look absolutely beautiful with your 3 month post baby belly! I know you don’t feel great about it but it is totally normal. It takes time to heal and all those ligaments, muscles and bones that so gently held that precious baby take time to get back as well. You will get there.

  30. At a wedding I recently attended where I accidently grabbed my shape ware that had a slight tear and tore them completely and then snagged my back up pair on my way out the hotel room.

  31. I would love to win this! I too am post-partum from baby #2 and need something to help a sister out!

  32. Ashley B. says:

    Well, I ALWAYS wish I was wearing shape wear (wait, no… I wish I didn’t NEED shape wear), but I am sure I’ll be wishing for some shape wear next week when my husband comes home from being out to sea for a month. He left one week after our daughter was born, so I was looking pretty rough when he left, so I know I’m going to want to look my best upon his return.

  33. Thanks for having the courage to post those photos! It’s so easy to see posts (like your pre-Sawyer outfit posts) and assume that you were one of those lucky women who had a better body as a momma than I had at 18. And as petty as it is, it can be hard for those of us normal people to see that. Thank you for normalizing the momma-body and being brave enough to show it online. Your posts (not just this one) always help me remember to be kind to myself, being a momma isn’t a walk in the park for any of us. :)

  34. I would love to try this out! After 4 c-sections I think it would be good!

  35. Nicole L. says:

    I should have been wearing shapewear during my son’s baby shower. The shower took place 4 weeks after he was born and looking back at the pictures, I cringe a little seeing how unflattering my clothes looked!

  36. I wish I could’ve worn it for my son’s blessing! I looked back at pictures and though- really?! I thought I looked good in that?!
    I hated that that was my thought rather than- what a cute family we are!

  37. Kara Thompson says:

    I just had a baby a little over 3 months ago as well so I feel your pain. I wish I had some shapewear to wear every day for the last few months ;)

  38. Tiffani T says:

    After 3 kids, 2 csections, hernia repair, and a hysterectomy 2 months ago, I need to wear shapewear EVERY DAY..
    Too chicken for a tummy tuck..:/

  39. Wow! Those look fantastic! I have a pair of spanx that were handed down to me from my sister. They are so, so uncomfortable! I cant even function with them on. I have to safety pin them to my bra to keep them from rolling down and that can get tricky when you gotta use the restroom after 4 kids :-) Needless to say, I quit trying to wear them. I would love to try these out.

  40. After two kids I needed this. I love this shape wear, and I like the Jockey brand too!

  41. Just started reading your blog and I love it. I have to say you look great for 3 months pospartum. I have to continue to wear maternity clothes for 6-9 months after having kids and then still look like I’m pregnant if I don’t suck it all in. I read that you had to have hernia surgery after your c-section, did your surgeon tell you that you probably shouldn’t have any more kids? I had to have hernia surgery 4 months afer my 2nd c-section and that is what my surgeon told me but I’m always curious as to what other surgeons say. Was your hernia a result of pregnancy or a bad c-section? Anyway, you look great and I think you do a terrific job on your blog.

  42. Nikki Busenbark says:

    Could always use the extra help seems really bad love handles and muffin tops run in the family… and being a single mom of two at 24 plus having a full time job and go to collage its really hard to fit in those workouts lol

  43. Wish I wore this on my wedding day..

  44. I would definitely get the slip shaper and wear it every sunday to church.

  45. I wish I had some shape wear because I’m about to have a baby (my 2nd as well) and will also have a “lovely” postpartum tummy!

  46. Had my second baby a few weeks ago and am dying for some items like these. The tummy shorts look awesome!

  47. Erica Lord says:

    I wish I knew about this sooner! I wish I had this all the time. Especially when we took our first family photos…I cringe at some of those photos. I feel fat all the time and I had my baby over a year ago! Thanks for posting this!

  48. When I was pregnant yes I felt huge and would ask my husband if I was fat and swollen and he always said no you look great…. Till after I had my son and he saw the pictures of me at the hospital. I wanted to feel good about my self and have the new mom glow. The jocky shape wear would have really come in handy afterwards and still now.

  49. FIrst off I just discovered ur blog and I am loving your blog.
    I was in a wedding last year and I wish I would have had shape wear then. I would love to try out the shapwear. :)

  50. First of all, you look so good for 12 weeks postpartum! I have a 2 year old and STILL have the smushy baby belly. You looked great in the before photos, but you looked smokin’ hot in the afters, so I’m hoping, I could look half that good if I were to try the Jockey products.

  51. um… every day since my child was born 2 years ago… ive had the hardest time getting the weight off so it would be nice to have a little help during the process. you look amazing buy the way!!!

  52. I wish I had the under the jeans shape wear everyday lately. After baby body still needs some toning lol. Thanks!

  53. Now! After having a baby too. Love what you said about listening to your body. Needed to hear that.

  54. After I had my first son, I wanted to cry every time I had to pick out clothes for the day. I felt like I still looked 4 months pregnant but with more flab. Even some of the shirts I wore through my pregnancy that stretched so nicely over my belly, now bunched up and looked awful over my not so tight midsection. It was awful. I have hardly any pictures of me with my son before he was 5 months old because I felt so gross. I am hopeful that now with my second pregnancy I can look good with help from shape wear for those first months after giving birth while my body recovers. Thanks so much for sharing such a practical solution for mommies on the go.

  55. I am impressed with how great the shapewear works. I wish that I would have worn shapewear a few months after having my second baby. I couldn’t fit into my jeans, so on once occasion, I wore my maternity pants (which didn’t have the band; they had elastic on the sides), and someone asked me if I was wearing my maternity pants in front of everyone. I wanted to die of embarrassment. I will have to check these out since I still have a squishy belly.

  56. Megan Montgomery says:

    I’m in the same boat as you, Ashley. My 1st pregnancy was with my twins and my second pregnancy was just 1 baby but since I was so huge with my twins I got pretty big with my 2nd pregnancy. My baby is 3 months old and I have about 4 things to wear that I rotate through the week. If I got shape wear I could wear so much more!

  57. Ok seriously. I need those products. I hate my post partum muffin top. It’s not as bad with my jeans because I’ve got my stretchy top prego jeans (although I’d much rather wear my normal jeans) but church is the worst. I’ve got two skirts I can wear and that’s it because my muffin top stops my zipper. This post of yours literally made my day today

  58. I wish I would have worn shape wear during a recent family photo shoot. The mirror lied, but the camera told the truth!

  59. I would like to wear them now all the time. In the process of trying to get skinny and in betwrrn sizes..maybe it would help for the smaller size :)

  60. I remember meeting an old work colleague about 3 months after having my daughter, and thought I was looking pretty slim, I had been exercising like crazy, the next time I saw him, about 2 months later he said to me “you’re looking really great now, last time you still had quite a belly but now it’s gone” and I remember thinking WHAT!?!!? haha, wish I’d had some then
    http://myfroley.blogspot.com

  61. First of all, I really appreciate you sharing your photos! I call my belly my “badge of honor” because I’m so thankful for my two kiddos. But, sometimes you do want to look a little smoother. Recently, I looked back at a picture and hadn’t realized at that time that you could see every lump and bump- that’s when I wished I had a little extra help! :)
    Thanks for the chance.

  62. I wish I would’ve had something like this after having my oldest daughter. But especially now that I’m a little older and losing those extra inches isn’t as easy as it use to be I’m very interested in this line for my daily wardrobe.

  63. Anna Vollmer says:

    I’m sure I’ll be needing shapewear at the end of July next year after the birth of my first child!

  64. I’d love to give this product a try too! No kiddos yet, but seriously….a changing body, womanly issues- we all need a little help in the smoothing department at one point or another. I think you look great by the way!

  65. I wish I had this Jockey shapewear last Fall when, after having my second son a couple of months earlier, I decided to give in and buy a jean size UP. Big mistake. Yes, it fit my waste better and was more comfortable but the jeans were terribly saggy in the butt and thighs. I kept wearing them even though they were not very flattering. I could have still worn my size 4 jeans if I had this shapewear.
    Well, now I am pregnant with boy #3, and I’m thinking I will have to buy this after I have him this Winter. :-)

  66. Everyday…does that count? After 2 c-sections, I just can’t get rid of the fat around my belly. It doesn’t matter that I’m still around the same weight…the fat doesn’t disappear. I definitely need some shapewear!

  67. Ho.ly.cow. Let me start by saying that I read this post during a late nigh feeding with my two month old boy. I’m lucky enough to be a stay at home mom with my first child and I’m loving almost every moment of it. What I’m not loving is my postpartum body. I have been exercising and eating right so I’m shedding pounds but the saggy, lumpy, bumpy look is still there. So reading your post was like an answer to my prayers. I am always comparing myself to others and when I see friends of mine whose bodies bounced right back after birth I just wanna cry as I wonder why that can’t be me. Anyway, I would wear these pe

  68. I wish I had been wearing shapewear a few weeks ago. After 14 weeks on bedrest a complicated pregnancy, i have a happy baby girl who is 2 months old now I left the house to go shopping for the first time without any kids. I walked into the store and the first person who saw me asked me when my baby was due. Shopping trip, FAIL.

    I wish I would have been wearing Jockey shapewear when I went to a wedding 2 weeks after giving birth to my first son and one of the guests asked me when I was due. I was so so upset, I left that wedding crying!!

  71. Michelle Lubbers says:

    I need some shapewear! Currently pregnant with baby number three and I’m sure going to need an intervention to cure my muffin top! Thanks for sharing your real self, it helps the rest of us relate as moms, we’re all in the same boat.

  73. I wish I had them to wear everyday! I am 12 months postpartum and still trying to get rid of my muffin top after baby number 2. I am still struggling to find energy to exercise and would love something that made me feel better about my body right now!

  75. Wow sorry my phone freaked out before I could finish my comment and posted it a trillion times.

  76. I wish I had been wearing shapewear on a night out in the city I had with friends recently. It would have made my outfit more flattering.

  77. High five for being so brave, Mama! You look fabulous with/out shapewear, but I’m happy you feel more comfortable. I’d love to stow this little prize package away for baby #3′s rebound!

  78. I wish I had shapewear at my husbands graduation. In the pics I looked prego!

  79. I could name 100 times after I had my little girl that I needed this! I would’ve loved to have this when I was getting out the first few times going back to the doctor and taking her out. I think it would have encouraged me to do more because I would have been less self conscious.

  80. Jennifer H. says:

    I have a shirt that I would love to wear out on a date but it shows every lump,bump and roll. I would love to have some shapewear to enable me to wear it out on a date with my husband.

  81. I wish I was wearing shapewear after my first baby was born! The timing is perfect because after giving birth to my second baby, I’ll need it! Thanks!

  82. I wish I had shapewear everyday lately becuase my postpartum stomach after baby#2 is so unflattering. I feel like I have to suck in every time I walk around.

  83. My second is 3 months today. I returned to work 3 weeks ago, and still have people commenting on my weight or asking if I am pregnant. It’s frustrating! Working, nursing, cleaning, caring for a toddler AND trying to study…I would love to get to the gym but it seems impossible. I also developed Type I diabetes, so insulin and having to eat every two hours hasn’t helped with the weight gain. I would LOVE to fit back into my old clothes and NOT have pudge hanging out everywhere!

  84. First– I wish I looked that good 5 YEARS after my son was born :)

    Secondly, I have a Christmas party at my husband’s work coming up and I’d love to have some shapewear to wear then– wish I had it last year when we went. There is nothing worse than getting dressed up and still not feel like you look as good as you could.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  85. I’m a teacher and I went back to school 3 weeks after having my second baby. At the back to school night, parents kept asking me how far along I was. My body has firmed up a little since then(3 mos. post baby, like you!), but I still got that annoying bulge. Shape wear would be helpful…

  86. Mmmm… I’m working out like a fiend, but my belly is there yet and it frustrates me. I know it will take a long time because I had huge babies so I’m dealing with post baby flab AND irresponsible munching. I think I like those shorts the best… smoothin’ everything out!

  87. RIGHT NOW! My son turns four months old this week and although I have been working out, I have a loong ways to go. (Starting out 10 lbs overweight will do that. Thank you night shift at the hospital!) Three kids in four years and I’ve always had a lil’ belly, so it feels like a never-ending battle. These products look seriously awesome, thank you for sharing and for being SO REAl about your postpartum body. I love it and you honestly look amazing!!

  88. Oh, and I tweeted this too and posted on Facebook before I even saw the contest, lol. Here’s my tweet: https://twitter.com/TinyBlueLines/status/266188684959830017

    This is so me right now… been on the search for a postpartum pair of jeans & am so discouraged (due to the lovely muffin top). Thank you for sharing. Hope I can find them before our upcoming family pictures! ;)

  90. WOW i applaud you on being brave enough to show us all the parts we woman love to hide. I can honestly say that we woman are too hard on ourselves sometimes. After being blessed with 3 beautiful but rather large children i have struggled for years trying to get back into that “size”. but i’ve come to realize its just a number and i’m ok with that but what do i so with all the saggy, baggy, lumpy parts? would love to win this gift card and not feel so self conscious when i go out. Thank you again for your honesty!!

  91. I have 2 boys, Hudson (5) and Sawyer (3). I love your blog and I would LOVE some shapewear!! I will have to get myself some!!! Amazing difference… but you look awesome for 3 months post baby!!!

  92. rosemariee says:

    there’s a dress that i’ve worn before that could definitely use it!

  93. I really wish I would have had shapewear on when we had our family pictures taken 2 years ago. It would have helped with the muffin top & love handles ;)

  94. You look amazing (with our without the shapewear!). I think it’s a must when I’m in weddings and/or wearing a form fitting dress!

  95. Right now!!!!!

  96. would love to win!

  97. Lindsay Hutchins says:

    i could use that slimming tank every day!

  98. Marilyn S says:

    I could sure use these products! Thanks for the giveaway!!

  99. I haven’t had a baby yet,but there are times when I am bloating due to my period, and I wish at certain occasions that I had something like this!

  100. I NEED these for our family photos! Our newborn son is just under a month old and, after three kids, my belly has seen better days.

  101. The before & after pics make such a difference! I would love a shape slimmer to wear under my dress on Sundays at church!

  102. I have a question… I have tried spanx and other things similar but they always seem to ROLL down and look odd from behind and I always feel like I am pulling it up. Have you had this problem?

  103. I wish I was wearing shape wear on my
    Wedding day! It definitely would have helped my hips!

  104. I would wear that slimming tank every single day!

  105. I wish I was wearing shape wear right now! I had my babe 3 months ago via c-section and nothing fits right! It is so frustrating. I haven’t been shopping for any slimming tanks yet (I have a really old one that I can even sit in so I think there is a bad taste in my mouth…) I would love to try the Jockey line!

  106. JESSICA COTTEN says:

    i honestly feel like i should wear shapewear every day. i hate that i don’t feel comfortable in any of my clothes. i’ve started working out to try to help, but i still don’t feel comfortable. i wore some shapewear after i had my daughter (she’s 13 months)… but i always felt like i was suffocating or that it was still too tight. i would love this especially for going to church. thanks for offering us a chance to win!!

  107. Lisa sealey says:

    I just welcomed my third baby a couple of weeks before baby sawyer was born! I would love to slide my old jeans/skirts/dresses on with ease with the help of shape wear!

  108. I need it everyday these days…3 babies in less than 4 years has not been kind to my tummy!

  109. Lynette Curtin says:

    I am about to have a baby, this stuff would help tremendously!!

  110. After 3 kids, which one pregnancy was twins, I could totally use this! I’ve recently lost 35 lbs, but this would help smooth everything out on a daily basis!

  111. I would definitely wear the tank top everyday. I love layered looks but since having 2 kids, I feel quite bulkish in all of them. I think it would help me look slimmer!

  112. Every day of my life I wish I was wearing these…these look amazing and this mama of 5 needs something like this to suck me in!! =)

  113. In two weeks I’ll be having my third baby. I will need these!!

  114. I so wish I had had these at my family reunion this past Summer! Unfortunately, I’m still living with the regret every time I see the photos!

  115. Tamara M. says:

    Honestly… After 3 kids I should be wearing it everyday! Thank goodness its cold out and I can stop sucking it in at the bus stop!

  116. Julie Tate says:

    I haven’t had any babies yet but I consider myself to be pretty curvy. I wish I would have had this on my wedding day. I tried to wear other spandex things to help suck everything in but it nearly made me pass out because it was so tight. I would love to try this product out!

  117. I TOTALLY need this, My newest is 6 weeks old, I was spoiled by losing most of the weight with my first effortlessly in 3 weeks, Its been 6 weeks and I still got 20 to lose and Im nursing and tired too…You are NOT alone…which makes me feel better too, I have 1 pair of jeans that save for going out, otherwise I wear sweats and yoga pants and feel like a total slacker. I bought a groupon while still pregnant for Zumba classes, I gotta go…sigh I gotta suck it up and go…or get some Jockey’s :)

  118. Sonia Mazur says:

    I need shapewear everyday too! Although my youngest is 4, having 4 kids under the age of 10 keeps me from having the energy to workout or get ready. Looking for something to jump start the ;movement :) Thanks for hosting the giveaway.

  119. I wish I didn’t need this, but I do…. Ugh. Thanks for the giveaway!

  120. Ashley, you are such an inspiration to all young Moms. I wish there had been a blog when I was raising my three wonderful children, (all adults now) I wore my first shapewear this past July under my dress for my only daughters wedding, yes it was 104 degrees and the ceremony was outside, I am just now recovering from the expense of her wedding and starting to purchase shapewear to wear everyday, I hope that Jockey is reasonably priced!! Would love to have shapewear on now. (it also reminds you not to overeat!!)

  121. Carly Delise says:

    Oh my gosh, when could I NOT use a slimmer! I am still suffering from the loose skin having twins caused!

  122. I only wear shapewear when I’m willing to suffocate! Sadly, it’s becoming more and more frequent after babies! I love the fact that these are comfortable! Woohoo!

  123. Lindsey green says:

    My baby is 1 and I still wish I had some shape wear every time I get dressed! Finally have the energy to exercise now and we just found out #2 is on the way… So much for exercise for the next 2years! Lol

  124. My husband’s job requires us to attend several semi-formal functions. I always dread having to squeeze into too tight, suffocating spandex products. I’m so excited to give these a try.

  125. Can I say shapewear would be good every single day?! :)

  126. when I want to squeeze into those pre-baby jeans! or wear a light summer dress that shows every bump and roll!

  127. I wish I would have shapewear on every time a stranger asks me if I’m pregnant. !

    My blog post here:
    http://kisertoo.blogspot.com/2012/11/postpartum-woes.html

  128. Ha! My last name is ‘Kiser’, no “T”. I’m losing my mind.

  129. I want shapewear! Three c-sections have not been kind to my belly…….

  130. I wish I had some on for a wedding – pics don’t lie! ;)

  131. I would of loved to have this when my first son was getting baptized! Of course I went out and bought a new dress and the big brand shape wear so I could feel good in it! Literally in the middle of mass, I had to leave and go into the bathroom to try to stretch, pull, tug, etc. Just to breathe! It was so tight and uncomfortable to sit in. The moment we came home following mass to celebrate a nice lunch with family to celebrate, I broke out the easy slip on yoga pants… But of course try to at least dress it ip with a nice top to make it look like I put some effort into it, haha! Of only I had the new Jockey shape wear… Excited to check it out:)

  132. jeri vaught says:

    Would love to have some right now!

  133. Due with #3 in December, I’m thinking some shapewear would be very nice to have!

  134. Kristina S says:

    I am going to have a baby any day now. You better believe I’m going to need some shape wear for every day, especially church :)

  135. I wish I had worn shapewear for my brother’s wedding. I just didn’t realize how many pictures i’d be in.

  136. I wish for that pretty much every day. I have a one month old and although I love him I am disgusted by what has happened to my body! Please let me win so I can regain some of my self respect!

  137. You said think of a time. Well, I am thinking of the here and now. It’s been almost 5 years since my last baby was born, but I still have the baby muffin top. Thanks for the chance to win.

  138. Shape wear is something EVERY mom needs to own, I would love to own these pieces :)

  139. First of all you still look amazing without the shapewear. I just had my twin girls 6 wks ago and still look like I’m 4 months pregnant. I hate it. I have to wear a corset bc I have stomach muscle separation ( fun times for sure ) but this look so great! If I don’t win I’ll have to try it out – especially since this was also my 3rd pregnancy. Whew! Those babies do a number on our bodies – am I right?! :)

  140. You are a ROCKSTAR!! I never could’ve posted pictures like that!

  141. I wish I was wearing shapewear the year after giving birth. I didn’t lose the weight very easily.

  142. I’ve always been tall and thin. I have 4 kids, my youngest a 9 month old. The muffin top easily shows in my slender frame.When my older children asked me the other day if I had another baby in my tummy, I had to rethink my dessert that night =)

  143. That would be the time the lady behind the counter asked when I was DUE! My youngest was 2 and we were not expecting! ;)

  144. I have I really cute blue dress that is super comfy, but it shows every bulge and bump. I would love some shape wear to smooth things out under it.

  145. susan lookhart says:

    amazing! I just had a baby 4 months ago and dread putting jeans on and hate my muffin top. this would be amazing!

  146. I am pregnant with my first baby and I would love to have the shape wear for my post partum belly!! Knowing that they don’t ride up/curl up and are breathable makes me want to try them for sure!

  147. Holy crap you are brave and real, which is why every mother loves reading your blog.

    I remember while still in the hospital after giving birth to my first child I happend to be leaving the restroom and turned around to turn off the light. That sexy hospital gown I was given to wear had come untied in the back and I got a quick glimpse of my backside in the bathroom mirror. I wanted to cry because that butt couldn’t be my butt, could it? All those months of working out and trying to maintain my girly figure had been washed down the drain during pregnancy and apparently I had some work to do. I really wish I had some kind of shaper that day, reality is sometimes so harsh, but those little darlings are worth every little ripple and dimple!

  148. I have never given any thought to look around and try something like these products. Can’t wait to get my hands on them and try them out.

  149. Ashley,

    This has absolutely nothing to do on the sweepstake or these under-clothing pieces…but it has to do with you.
    You are beautiful. You are brave. You are real. You are inspiring. Please, please know how beautiful you are. You are gorgeous. You have gorgeous babies, because they look just like you! I hope you know all of this.

    I love you. I love your blog. thank you for inspiring me and allowing me to be a part of your life!

    <3 Haleigh

  150. I just had a baby girl 4 months ago and ate up all that you wrote! Checked out their website. I’m hoping I win, but if not I’ll be saving up for these pretties.

  151. I think you look great. These look awesome though! I could really use this after I give birth again!!

  152. Oh my word! I would use all of this stuff right now. I just had my third baby, and well, let’s just say nothing’s the same.

  153. thanks for sharing…three babies later and post-cancer (3 yrs out) I could use a little help…thanks for the giveaway!

  154. GREAT giveaway! I went to a wedding earlier this year (when I was 7 mo postpartum) and could have died after seeing pictures – major pudge :(

  155. You look amazing! I still have a muffin top and my baby is 3! I wish I had that shape wear years ago!!

  156. Let’s see…when have I not needed to wear shape wear?!

  157. i just had my second son 3 weeks ago so i can use shape wear everyday! totally going through that insecure baby belly stage…its that awkward time where you want to start working out but cant because its too early. yea loving it. sarcasm.
    i love the results you have!

  158. michelle riebeek says:

    I wish I had worn it everyday after having a baby! Especially times when I needed the confidence!

  159. wow – I feel you sistah. But can I just offer a bit of comfort in that it could be worse. I have had 4 babies ranging from 21 – 5 years old. I had them naturally and have never been able to lose the bulge. It is almost like the muscle down there is dead and has no more elastic in it…so it it extra juggly. I have tried lots of different shape ware and gotta tell you that they all ride up and since and pinch so I would love the chance to try some that don’t bunch up and something I would look good in a dress with. I dread dressing up for fear of the ever present bulge.and ripple..ick.

    I am glad you found something tht fits and makes you feel good. thanks for the chance to win
    tina(42 y.o & mom to 4)
    one crafty mess

  160. Ashley you look AMAZING!! Loved the before and after pictures. Gives me hope after I have my second baby in May! Even if I dont win this amazing giveaway, I am pretty sure im buying the tank and tummy short!

  161. Tara Rich says:

    I could use them now as I had a baby 6 weeks ago! These look amazing:). Thanks for being so willing to share pictures! And you look great:)

  162. I wish I had some shapewear for all those times when a seemingly cute outfit is ruined by muffin top when I sit down :(

  163. we just had family pics and i felt so self conscious – wish i had the shape wear!

  164. Amy Wolfinger says:

    Having baby #2 in January, I will want all of these products then! Thanks for reviewing them for us!

  165. I need this shapewear. I REALLY needed it for our family photo shoot. I hated my lumps and rolls in all the pics.

  166. I wish I had worn something like this to my husband’s pharm school graduation. I had been searching for several months for a new dress, and none that I found fit quite the way I hoped so I didn’t buy one. Do they have a product like this for arms? :)

  167. Wish i would have had this when a lady at the store pointed me to the maternity section. Sheesh. Not pregnant. :( you look great by the way! Thanks for being confident enough to share these pictures. I always think of your beauty”full” post and it has changed the way I view myself. :)

  168. wish i would have had the dress shaper for my 10 year anniversary photos with my husband! they turned out good, but after 3 babies in 5 years, there were a few pics where i still look prego! :(

  169. I wish I was wearing shapewear in our last family photos. It looks like I was preggo, but I wasn’t. Just sporting a muffin top post-baby.

  170. Allison D says:

    Oddly enough, I wish I was wearing something like this while walking my last half marathon. The pictures were NOT flattering!

  171. I have a couple pairs of shapewear but I feel like I am suffocating all day long! They are so tight! Would love to try the new Jockey shapewear

  172. My 3 rd baby just turned 3 months old yesterday. Even though I try to eat healthy and exercise my body is not what it used to be. Two weeks ago I was having a rough mommy day. Left the littles with the mister and went shopping only to feel worse after trying on some clothes and nothing fitting right. Sure could have used some shapewear that day.

  173. If only I could wear shapewear under my swimsuit. :)

  174. I searched high and low for a comfortable, easy to wear shape wear for an alumni event last spring but never found one!! Wish I had!

  175. For date nights and moments when I need to feel good about myself.

  176. After having a baby, shape wear would definitely help out with confidence! I would probably wear it on a daily basis. It is so strange getting used to my post baby body. Props for showing these pictures! You look fab!! Shape wear or not!! Seriously! :)

  177. Like you, I also just give birth to a bouncing baby boy 4 months ago. Given the same situation, I also would love to wear shapewear since I don’t really want to buy ‘fat’ clothes (yet). I am not giving up on getting back in shape . ;)

  178. I wish I’d been wearing these items when we played bluegrass gospel at an outdoor festival in September. I saw photos of me on stage with my family…..ughhh….I need to do more situps. :( Thanks for the giveaway! I want to blame this situation on having three girls…but they are 6, 8 and 10…so I can’t blame it on postpartum…how about blaming it on being 40? :)

  179. Wendy Orme says:

    I’ve always been a “twig” person, but after about age 45 I started to get a bulgy, squishy middle, so this would really be helpful to me! You look great!

  180. Miranda M says:

    I freakin love that you did that Ashley! I’m always trying to find ways to hide my 4 month post-partum jiggle care of baby girl #2 and I don’t have the sort of belly love to post it on the world wide web. You’re the best! Also, I wish I had this stuff for my hubby’s class reunion, I wanted to be his arm candy, I’m not denying that

  181. Cerissa hocker says:

    Everyday! Since my baby is five weeks old I am in the same boat! You look great!

  182. Shawn Reese says:

    umm… I wish I was wearing it every day, I have a two month old baby so I know exactly how you feel!!!

  183. Stephanie says:

    Even though it’s been a year since I had my baby, my body just isn’t the same. I neeeeed some shapewear to make up for what I can’t get my body to do myself!

  184. I have a four month old and wish I could *comfortably* fit in my favorite jeans. I’ve tried them on, but it’s Muffin Top City over here…not a pretty site!

  185. After my 2nd daughter was born, I thought I looked great a month later. Losing 20 lbs and a large tummy made me feel great. However, when I looked at pictures of us on Easter I realized I still had some tummy and would need to start sucking in. I wish I had shapewear then! I am due with our 4th child, 2nd son on Christmas Day 2012, and I would love to be prepared for the new year. What could be better than looking like a hot mom of 4!!!

  186. I’ve been wishing for shapewear on a daily basis as I too have a postpartum belly! I’m at the point where any pants that fit my belly are way too saggy in the butt, so I’m still wearing my maternity pants.

  187. Katherine says:

    Oh, my post-babies best friend, shapewear! How I wish I’d known about it a few years earlier… I still cringe a bit when I see pictures from my husband’s ordination (he’s a pastor). I wore a beautiful dress but it would have been much more flattering with a little shapewear-induced tummy flattening… I hate when you don’t realize that a dress or outfit isn’t quite the best fit until you see the pictures later.

  188. My son will be one and I Still have the muffin! I would wear shapewear every day if I had the right kind!!

  189. My son will be one next weekand I Still have the muffin! I would wear shapewear every day if I had the right kind!!

  190. Lydia Story says:

    Awesome! I had no idea these even existed. I would love to use the gift card, and snag a couple of these! Thank you!

  191. i think i definitely need to invest in some of these:) i am 12 weeks post baby and she was #4. i only have 6 pounds left to loose, but it looks like this mommy pouch is not going anywhere!

  192. One of my favorite tops for dancing was a shape wear piece that could be worn under v-necks or alone. Been missing it ever since I lost it! Love some of these products, hope I win!

  193. I have a 3 month old baby and I need to get some shape wear!! I wore a pencil skirt to church the other day…. lets just say, unless I was sucking in the whole time, it did not look good! But I wore it anyway. Oh well :)

  194. After 2 kids, shapewear would be fantastic. I never really thought about it, but after this post I might look into getting some.

  195. everyday

  196. I WISH I would have known about Shapewear after my first pregnancy.. and this stuff looks amazing, so I am off to buy some!

  197. I remember the day I was the matron of honor at my friends’ very casual backyard vows. It was a beautiful day, but I felt very self-conscious of how I looked in my clothes. I picked something frumpy and too big because I didn’t think I looked good enough for my ‘nice’ clothes. I should give these shapers a try!

  198. I would LOVE to win!

  199. alix anderson says:

    I’m 4 weeks postpartum and my belly is not looking good either. AND i have WAY more stretch marks than you! you’re looking good! I would love to win a gift card!

  200. I wish I had the excuse of having a baby 3 months ago! I’ve never lost the weight from my almost-2 year old! So pretty much EVERY time I get dressed is a time I wish I had shapewear! Oh, and I would kill to have that many stretchmarks. Mine went from my thighs all the way up to my bra-straps after my FIRST baby! Imagine what my poor stomach looks like after 5 pregnancies!

  201. oh my! you are looking amazing mama! i would love the shapewear for everyday… baby girl just turned ONE and i am STILL in maternity pants because i can’t find pants that fit right! :(

  202. Lisa Brown says:

    I went to a business dinner a few years back and the dress I wore, definitely needed shapewear.
    Didn’t look too bad, but I was not comfortable the entire night. jslbrown_03 at yahoo dot com

  203. Lisa Brown says:
  204. I would have loved to use this for a dinner date with teh hubby a few weeks ago–finally have feeling in my tummy so can finally do sit-ups now at least!

  205. I would love to have this Jockey shapewear for the fabulous new dress I just got for New Year’s Eve!!

  206. when im on a date

  207. I saw the recent Jockey catalog and was intrigued… but after seeing how these products work on a real body, I am even more intrigued. The fact that you said they were comfortable and didn’t restrict your movement at all is a big selling point!

    • Oh, and I’d love to try Jockey Shapewear for every day AND for special occasions. Who wouldn’t want to feel (and look!) their best on any given day?

  208. I would love to feel good in my clothes again! I have had 2 babies in two years and stretchy pants are getting old! The Jockey Shapewear looks great! I would love to try it!

  209. I need these everyday! I just recently had my second baby and have had a hard time getting rid of the muffin top and tummy bulge. Like you, I can’t find the energy I need to exercise regularly when I’m so exhausted with my 3 year old and 6 month old.

  210. I’m so glad I saw this! I gained and lost so much weight after my first pregnancy that I was left with a sad, saggy tummy. Although thankful to have lost the excess weight I had gained while pregnant, I was still insecure about my deflated midsection. Now I’m pregnant with baby #2, but I am definitely going to look into this shape wear when the weight from this pregnancy comes off!

  211. Any office Holiday party I’ve ever been to!

  212. courtney b says:

    i would need this today when i’m pregnant and look chubby!!!

  213. courtney b says:
  214. I wish I had worn shapewear pretty much any time I see a pic of myself not wearing it! It seems that something magical happens between checking yourself in the mirror and when that picture is taken. Maybe clothes just naturally settle into bad places and your posture goes out the window? I swear it always looks better in the mirror!

  215. I really admire you for being real. Getting the bod back takes time! We aren’t all Heidi Klum. And most women have some type of expectation of how easy it will be to get your old body back. But after pregnancy, your body is never the same. Things sag. And stretch. And loosen. Even after losing the weight, my body is still not the same.
    So kudos to you for being willing to give your readers some insight into the after part of pregnancy!:)

  216. Pretty much every day! After having 3 kids in 4 years and an abominable amount of stretch marks I definitely have a little muffin top. Even though I am in better shape than I ever have been thanks to teaching Zumba my skin has no elaticity and therefore stretched out, but not all back. So I feel like I have this little tummy that may never go away. No matter how much Zumba-ing I do! Definitely LOVE the shapewear you showed! And to have something that holds and sucks in AND you can move in? AH-MAZING! Thanks for your openness to share it all with us!

  217. My twin mama belly needs those…..and my twins are four.

  218. I know I will be needing some this holiday (wedding) season. Baby #2 is coming Friday!

  219. I definitely need this. I had baby #3 2.5 months ago and I still can’t fit into most of my pants without having a horrible muffin top :(

    2 months after I had a baby I spoke in church. I really wish I would have worn some. Looking back. I didn’t look so great!

  223. amy pugmire says:
  224. I just had my baby almost 2 months ago and I have been living in tights… I decided to wear tights in our newborn pictures because it was casual at home and plus I couldn’t fit into any jeans, well I hate myself in the pictures! I wish wish wish I would have worn shape wear!

  225. I pretty much wish I was wearing shape wear all of the time!!! I think I will want to wear it on my first cruise this December. Thanks for a chance to win and have a great day!

  226. Autumn Penz says:

    I wish I had these the first time around! Ashley, thanks for being so vulnerable and showing these pictures! You look great! :) I’ll have to get these for baby #2– someday!!!

  227. Ashley you are SO brave to have posted those pics but I gotta say you look good in the jockeys! I honestly wish I would have had these with my first! Now that I’m pregnant with my second And gve my high school reunion 5 months after I’m due ((gasp)) I KNOW I’m going to need these

  228. ashley i would love to have your post partum “bump” (??) as my every day tummy. you are tan, thin, and just so beautiful! i have a pair of spanx but boy do they cut of my circulation around the thighs..and i feel like the thigh line isn’t “seamless”.

  229. i need this.. My current spanks is almost see through.. I decided to not wear them once and was asked when i was due at least 4 times.. I am not pregnant and my youngest is 3! help a sister out Ashley!

  230. All the weddings I went to this summer! My spanx thing was always so hot and cut into my breathing! :)

  231. I definitely need these shapewears! I had my daughter April 2012 and I still have a muffin top even with jogging 3-4 times a week. Ugh!

  232. I am a momma of one beautiful girl, and we just recently found out my birth control had failed. We are expecting baby #2 in May of next year. Needless to say I am really not looking forward to the impending postpartum months. What momma hasn’t looked in the mirror and that moment of wishing she could magic away the squishy, lumpy, flabby muffin top that appears after you pop out a blessing from God!? After my first baby was born, I tried so many different things to flatten the muffin top that appeared over my favorite jeans. Nothing quite worked. I was nursing, so full body tops weren’t an option. I work, and need to be able to breathe and move, so corsets and various other body squeezers weren’t much help during the work hours. I would absolutely love having something that allowed me to feel better about my body, and gave me the self esteem boost I know I will need while trying to be the momma/wife my family needs me to be.

  233. I know that I really could’ve used it on several occasions…especially when wearing this cute black dress of mine :)

  234. Brittany M says:

    I am expecting my 3rd babe in December and KNOW I would definitely be able to use these!

  235. I wish I had this shapewear last time I went to a family function! The dress I wore gave my family a very FALSE impression that I might be pregnant, yeah that dress will not be worn again…

  236. I think about buying shapewear everyday when I also suck my mommy tummy in. I had a baby 9 months ago, so I know the feeling about getting your body back to where it was!

  237. I’m 18 weeks into my first pregnancy and I’m pretty sure that next summer I’ll be wishing I had these!

    After a cesarean and an abdominal surgery 4 months later, I will never be the same. I have tried some shapewear, but it rolls up and is uncomfortable. I love Jockey panties, so maybe this is the thing for me. Thanks for sharing!

    I wish I had them for my family pictures last week!

  240. At my high school reunion.

  241. I got so big during my pregnancies that my tummy is terribly deformed. I am not a candidate for a tummy tuck due to a blood condition I have. All I can do is wear loose clothing. I do have one shaper but it KILLS me! I used to lead worship in my church, and would have liked to have had this shaper back then when I would stand in front of hundreds of people. I know they weren’t looking or judging me, but it would have made me feel better.

  242. I almost bought a pair of those shorts, but they didn’t have nude. A few days later I found out I’m pregnant again. Totally need some after baby is born.

  243. I need these!! I wish I had them every single day! I am 9 months post partum and I have worked hard but I need something else!

  244. I would love to try this shape wear! What I heard during my first pregnancy is true: it might be better or it might be worse but either way after pregnancy your body will never be the same. After three babies I know that is true:) but… Maybe some shape wear could give the illusion that my body is back to its pre-baby shape;)

  245. I would love to wear that daily! I just had my third baby and my body has definitely taken a hit from my pregnancies. It would be especially nice to have when I wear dresses. Dresses seems to show my lumps and bulges worse than anything else I wear.

  246. My hubby’s company Christmas party

  247. After reading this I ran right out to try these products! I found them at Kohls! I LOVE the tank that doesn’t flatten your boobs!!! They didn’t have the shorts but I’m dying to try them. I rocked my tanks in Vegas last weekend!

  248. I wish I’d had this shapewear last Tuesday, 11/13, my baby’s 5 month birthday. Most of this workday was spent smiling, thinking of the beautiful boy waiting for me at home. Then came time for a presentation I had to give at a staff meeting. I felt prepared but still a bit nervous about standing up in front of people to present. Anyway, I got up to speak but before I could say a word, the woman closest to me asked (out loud), “Ohh my goodness, do we have another little bun in the oven?!”. After going through a spectrum of various shades of red I in formed the room that No. I. Was. Not. Pregnant. I thought women, of all people, knew better than to ask a question like this in a roomful of people, let alone ask at all, but alas, this one is unmarried and childless. And tactless. :-/

  249. I would love to look great and feel that I did. This could definitely help with that! :)

    this is a wonderful giveaway! i have had 4 children and multiple abdominal surgeries, so muffin tops are a way of life for me, lol. breathable fabric is such a plus!

  252. Man, you look great. I don’t have any kids, workout 5 or 6 days a week and eat sensibly and I still have belly issues, so I think you are doing fantastic. I’ve always been a pretty big proponent of shapewear, and will sacrifice comfort to look good. I’m excited that these are breathable and am intrigued to see how their comfort compares. I can’t really think of a specific instance where I wish I would have been wearing shapewear because generally if I’m in doubt, I wear it. :)

  253. I know I will be needing shapewear after my baby is born! :)

    I wish I had been wearing shapewear, post-baby at my son’s Kindergarten Graduation. I was wearing this really cute jersey wrap-dress, but when I passed a window at the school I realized that I looked like a Shar-pei in a dress.

  255. Jamie Ball says:

    My post baby body could use shape wear right now, especially for the holidays!

  256. maria cantu says:

    every time I get dressed, sadly

  257. definitely it was my hubby’s company party…I think I’m still “growing” everyday…or the dress was just very “fit”! :P

    Thanks for the cool giveaway!

  263. I wish I was wearing shapewear this past weekend when I had a babydoll t-shirt on that was way too snug and I ran into my ex-ex-boyfriend and his new skinny wife. Next time!

  264. Wow, that thing really does magic. I need one of those asap! My son is almost 9mo and I still have the same yucky belly :( Beautiful blog!!

  265. Cynthia Holthaus says:

    I needed these last week with a super short dress. The shorts would have been perfect! The ones I had on totally rode up and didn’t do their job!

  266. I need these going to work everyday because I’m wearing high waisted jeans to keep the bulge down!

  267. I’m 10 months postpartum with my first baby and am still trying to get back to some semblance of my former self. This would be awesome!

  268. Christina Tong says:

    I wish I had been wearing shapewear when I attended my friend’s birthday party where we had too much good food and I had been wearing a super tight dress.

  272. You are awesome! I love your courage and candor. As a mom of teenagers you took me down memory lane.I remember going through that squishy post-partem phase and not having the lingerie options we have now. Although my baby days have passed, I have now entered the post-menopausal phase and, alas, have rediscovered squishiness again. I’m thrilled to learn that Jockey, an affordable brand, has such a great line. I will be visiting my local store! Let me add that you look great and your baby’s smiles prove it!

  273. christina says:

    Wish I was wearing it the day my 3 year old decided to lift my shirt up all the way to my bra… while kneeling and holding something above my head… totally exposing my post baby muffin top to the entire universe! Yeah- wish that never happened. :(

  274. Tara Bowman says:

    I wish I had been wearing Jocket shape wear for my daughter’s baptism. She was 3 weeks old and when I look back at the pictures all I can think of is how big I look. To make matters worse my mom is using one of those pictures for her family Christmas card!

  275. I could have totally used some shapewear few months after my first son was born…like every day! It was summer and wearing some slimming pieces under my clothes would have been helpful.

  276. Every time I wear anything even remotely fitted I wish I was wearing shapewear. The lumps and bulges are getting way out of hand.

  277. I would have loved to have had shapewear for my wedding, for when I was a bridesmaide, and for when I was a chubby kid in dance recital costumes! LOL

  278. ANGEL JACKLYN says:

    I really, really love posts with pictures. They make them THAT much more interesting so thank you.

    I would have appreciated “breathable” shapewear when I was 70 lbs heavier a few years ago, but even more so now because I have the saggage that’s left from being 70 or so lbs heavier. I don’t wear dresses, which is something that would be nice to do sometime… *hint, hint* JOCKEY!…

    Thanks for a super giveaway!

  283. Brooke Wagner says:

    Thanks for this! I’m a mom of 3…including my very own “Baby Sawyer”. He turned 3 months on Christmas Day and sadly, my stomach is still recovering from his almost 9 pound wonderfulness and c section. I will look for this shape wear the next time I manage to escape from my house. (Possibly, if a small miracle occurs and I am able to escape alone, no one will poke my belly as I’m trying it on and ask “Mommy, why is your tummy fluffy?”)

  284. You’re beautiful!! I would have loved to have some good Jockey shape wear when we took family photos around Christmas time. YIKES!!

  285. Tori Lexington says:

    You are so gorgeous! I had to get a job while I was pregnant. I had to get pregnancy shapewear to make myself look presentable. I got a few pregnancy shapewear clothes from http://www.cozybelly.com/ which turned out to be so cute!

  286. I want to to thank you for this wonderful read!!
    I certainly loved every little bit of it. I have got you book-marked to
    look at new things you post…

  287. I give you so much props for showing your post-pregnancy body! Our bodies are amazing for what they can do and the little miracles they bring into this world. While we should cherish the beauty of our bodies in any form, it is nice to have great products like these that can boost our self esteem and confidence. I could use something like this everyday when I’m trying to squeeze back into my work pants.
