ShaToBu Shapewear Review and Giveaway

While I'm proud of my "mom" body and the fact that I nourished and grew two beautiful boys in it, the mess I was left with isn't so pretty. I was lucky that I was able to lose all of the weight I gained while pregnant, but the fact that I gained 75 lbs left my skin stretched and saggy.
Enter ShāToBu – The Workout You Wear™ !! ShaToBu is a "revolutionary shaper that helps you tone muscles and burn calories" while you wear it! It has a cute play on words behind the name: The tummy SHAping, muscle TOning, calarie BUrning workout you wear!! ShaToBu has created slimming shapewear for all shapes and sizes, and with regular wear and use, you'll notice a difference in your waistline! There are resistance bands incorporated into the shapewear making you burn more calories through out the day and working those muscles in just the right spot! "Women wearing ShaToBu increased their energy use by up to 12% during daily activities, when compared to wearing their regular undergarments." Because of all that, you'd think it would be uncomfortable- Well I'm going to tell you it's amazingly comfortable and so seamless under my clothes!
I was able to review the ShaToBu High Waist to Knee Shaper. I chose this particular for a few reasons-it would cover and work on the areas I'm having the most trouble with, and it would smooth out all of my insecurities just in time for a very special date night with my husband. We are going out sans children to a black tie event next month, and I've been so worried about what dress I'm going to wear, hoping to find one that won't make me look pregnant, and not be too matronly/too old for my taste. With the ShaToBu High Waist to Knee shaper, I can wear any dress I want! I chose the size best suited for my weight range, and I also chose the Buff color. That way I can have my pick of dress color without worrying if my underwear will be seen through my dress! I was a bit nervous when I opened the box to my shaper, it looked very small! But I was able to put it on with ease, it goes on just like panty hose, and it was a perfect fit! It is comfortable, and it stayed in place! That is my  number one complaint about any other shapewear I have tried, they always fall down and bunch up under what I'm wearing-which can be embarrassing, because I really don't want people to know the real secret to my slim figure :D That will never be a problem with ShaToBu, their waist and knee bands are non binding, and they prevent any rolling, pinching or bulging!

The High Waist to Knee Shaper gave me that much desired hour glass figure I've been missing for a few years! It smoothed over the love handle area and of course covered the dreaded tummy sag!
I really think any of the ShaToBu shapers should be on a moms must have list for after the baby is born. Not because I don't think you should be proud of what your body has done in carrying a child but because we all know that feeling of insecurity when we don't back to our pre baby body-this will give you that boost in confidence you might be needing, and you can burn calories and get toned while looking good!
