Ever find an amazing little dress that fits in all the right places except it does nothing to hide your problem area (ahem.. mid-section)? Depressing isn’t?

I definitely know the struggle because that is my problem area too.  When I gain weight, it is noticeable on my booty (awesome!), my hips (bring it!) and my belly (womp, womp).  But you know what, why worry and be down about it when there’s a solution for that.  What’s the solution you ask?  Of course the gym and a healthy diet my fiance and everyone in their right mind would say, BUT what you really want to know is what is the QUICK FIX  when you have a wedding or event to go to and no time for all of that? the answer is a waist cincher!  Yep, you’ve heard of it before and  it is nothing new (it’s older than your great grandmother) and it gets the job done.   If used correctly it can be more than just a quick fix, I just learned that if you wear the waist trainer for 30 days + you can actually have long lasting results, hence the name waist trainer.  Jessica Alba knows the deal and the Kardashian sis are loyal fans.

But if the thought of wearing a waist cincher makes you cringe because it sounds like torture (that’s definitely me) or you think they don’t actually help the problem that’s probably because you haven’t found the right one.   Not all cinchers are made the same or held to a high standard and that’s why  I’m really proud to introduce  my giveaway sponsor for week three HourglassAngel.com,  an online shapewear boutique that has made quality a priority and carries an incredible variety of shapewear and body solutions for every women’s “problem area”.  For this giveaway they will be giving away the Classic Cincher Waist Trainer By Amia A102a best-selling waist-shrinking garment and ultimate everyday midsection shaper.

The idea of doing this giveaway came from a real life experience when I was tagged on this picture for my birthday.

With my girls, don’t mind the gut!
I could not help but to direct my attention to my gut pouring out of my dress (This is actually one of the better pictures, there is a least two others that I chose not to post). I knew the belly was visible because when I complaint about it after dinner, my friend’s husband joked “fajas girl!”, that’s Spanish for cincher.  He didn’t mean this in an offensive way and of course I didn’t take offense but the point is that he’s not the first to mention the sneaky little “faja” (not-so) secret (anymore).
My fiance went to school with the Ruben Soto, the founder of Hourglass Angel and he encouraged me to reach out to him for my blogiversary giveaways. I’m very excited that Ruben has agreed to generously gift the lucky winner with this amazing fixer-upper and confidence booster.  I will be buying mine this weekend when I’m caught with my work and can make time to leisurely browse.

    So glad you mentioned this is a quick fix and not a replacement for healthy eating and fitness. Also, I think even if you have a flat stomach, you have your days when your belly will stick out. I try to do ab excercises every day but on that wrong day and in the wrong dress I feel like a kangaroo! Lol

  • Colleen Boudreau

    I’ve been interesting in trying a waist trainer for a while now.

  • I am a menopausal 49 year old with a serious need to try anything to help with the hormonal weight crazies. Have been researching this for a while!

  • this would be so cool to win. I agree that it should be used as a quick fix. Sometimes there are certain pieces that love to how your little rolls more than other pieces.

  • Cindy

    This would be really neat to win. I am a mom and could really use this LOL I need a little extra help in that area. Would be fun to try it out and see how it works with my body!

  • Okay so I have heard of this and for some it actually works. I know my waist is gone and I need something to get my coca cola body back and this may be it. I have always wanted to try so I am putting in

  • Ourfamilyworld

    I have used one of these before and yes, you are right it could visibly reduce your waistline. This is definitely a quick fix if you need to attend an important occasion where you have to dress up.

  • Jennifer Juro

    What a fun giveaway! I have had a couple instances like that with dresses, even recently in
    San Diego! I really need to cut the junk out of my diet so I can take care of the issue for good!

  • Danielle Knapp

    I’ve heard a lot about waist trainers, but have always been afraid to try them. I do use shapewear when I go out, but I feel like this looks so much better than anything I’m currently using. I definitely need to try one of these and see how they work.

  • Emily N.

    I have heard about how waist cinchers have helped some celebs improve their figure, so I’d like to try it for myself.

  • Abundant Journeys

    Oh snap! Waist cincher is all I needed to hear. After I had my son I ate right, worked then found out my thyroid was causing my weight gain. A cincher would have come in handy at that time. I don’t need one anymore. :-)

  • Steph D.

    I am so excited to try one! I have been pregnant and I’m about to get back into shape :) this would help give me extra motivation and look great in clothes in the meantime and even after I’m back to my post-pregnancy body.

  • Heather

    I’ve heard great things about waist cinchers. I have never tried one, but I would like to.

  • RattlesandHeels

    I recently gained a few pounds and it seems like all of it is around my stomach. I’ll love to try out the waist trainer although I’m a but scared that it will be too uncomfortable. I will definitely talk to my doctor first.

  • Lauren Harmon

    Waist sinchers are awesome! I have one and love the way it makes my figure look! This giveaway is awesome as well. :)

  • When I see women in corsets they are too cute. However, I just can’t fathom having my mid-section pushed in like that. I might wear one that is meant to be worn as outer wear like with a cute skirt or something. :)

  • Samantha Rodriguez

    I have three rolls every time I sit down and back rolls that I know would be smoothed out by the waist trainer. I wish I had one!!!!

  • Shanna

    I have been hearing so much about these and I would love to try!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Kayla Barnhart Bergstrom

    I need some help after having two beautiful babies!!

  • Bree Repsa

    I have a baby due in a few weeks and I really want a little bit of stomach support and a chance to get my shape back after the face :)

  • Anonymousities

    My stomach is my problem area and I’d love to look fabulous in my clothes again!

  • Marnie G (Derrick Todd)

    I would love to win this. I think it definitley helps with the curves.

  • jennfnn

  • HoneyB22

    As a single workingMom of 3 kids, I no longer have a waist and would love to get the Cincher Waist Trainer By Amia to get back into shape and get SEXY! Nicole Bowers

  • Melissa

    I have heard about these so much lately. Waist cinchers really seem to do the trick. I think my mom may benefit from using it. They are really cute too, I am sure that helps a girl feel sexy.
