What Exactly Does the Body Magic Do?

Shapewear, bodywear (previously referred to as girdles) are figure flattering foundation garments that use the latest technology to smooth away love handles, tummy rolls and muffin tops.  You know what I'm talking about : ) 

Shapewear  firms everything up.  Today's garments are not your grandmother's girdle.  Yesterday's model had boning, metal and really uncomfortable, heavy material.   Body Magic and/or Ardyss brands are made of lightweight, breathable medical grade compression material.  It's a win win situation to wear one.  You lose the inches immediately because it compresses you, but it also reduces your size if you continue to wear the garment.

Jessica Matthews, spokesperson for the American Council on Exercise, said shapewear is the latest take on the compression clothing that has been used by distance runners, athletes and football players for some time.

The difference with shapewear is that a girdle like your grandmother wore in the 50's, will smooth you out, but once you take off a girdle you're back to the same body you started with. But, if you keep using it (shapewear), you'll see a change in your body as it tones and tightens; and perhaps even a psychological affect.  Some find that  wearing shapewear improves their confidence and self esteem and empowers them  to want to exercise more.

You wont' be  disappointed, if you wear it like you are suppose to, you'll see the difference. It's a commitment, just like exercise.

Looks Seamingly Easy ... Seamed Stockings

This is a fabulous retro picture. Puts a new spin on "seamed stockings" doesn't it? 40s popular option was to apply makeup to the leg, a tedious procedure that could include painting a black line up the back of the leg to complete the illusion.

Noni Juice ... Worth a try for it's purported holistic benefits...

Pure Noni juice is used to promote good health due to its therapeutic qualities and function as a natural curative agent. Used in Asia and Polynesia for more that 2,000 years, the medicinal benefits of this fruit have been developed over generations. The maximum benefits of Pure Noni are obtained from its 100% natural juice state

Purported Benefits:

• Helps protect the respiratory system.*

• Helps fortify the immune system.*

• Contains Antioxidants.*

According to the blog Noni  -- Noni juice may not taste that delicious but it is extremely holistic, which explains why many celebrities are flocking to the Polynesian fruit juice. From David Bowie to Meg Ryan, celebrities looking to stay healthy are turning to noni juice for its famous holistic benefits.

Rosie O’Donnell is a purported noni aficionado, along with super model Miranda Kerr, which goes to show you the spectrum of celebrities that have tapped into this fad. Although noni juice has failed to peak much major media attention, the benefits of noni juice seem to have passed through tinseltown, infecting Hollywood with a healthy habit. The differences between the celebrities who love noni mirrors the same wide audience that it has enjoyed world wide, as I’ve met hippies and lawyers alike who swear by noni’s healing properties.

Of course when celebrities do something, people seem to want to do it too. Hopefully these celebrities can spread the word about noni, even if only by example, increasing sales for the companies and improving health for consumers. Greater demand for the juice may drive the price up initially, but fierce competition and a larger market would ultimately level the price out, putting noni into the hands of more individuals. With that said, there’s definitely some good that can come out of celebrity trends. Since regardless of what celebrities do, people copy them, they really are given quite a bit of power. This looks like one case where they’re using their power for good, even if they’re doing it obliviously.
As always ... check with your doctor before you take anything.

As Seen on TV - Lady GaGa's Body Stocking AKA Girdle

As you can see ... even celebrities wear shapewear!

Lady Gaga is well-known for her outlandish outfits, but it seems that her body stocking-du-jour can be bought off the television;  the L.A. Times reports. Kymaro, an 'As Seen On TV' enterprise claims that Gaga's flesh-colored suit is the Kymaro Body Shaper, and gets rid of love handles, spare tires and middle age spread. It slims down 2 dress sizes instantly and is made from a comfortable fabric that moves with you, perfect for those times when you're performing "Bad Romance" in front of a crowd of screaming fans.

Now ... I hope you all agree with me .... doesn't our shapewear look much better????

Check ours out at Ardyss Body Magic : )
