Muffin Tops

This is an actual cupcake mold!
#Muffin Tops Cupcake Molds
He's not guilty, he is special this way!
Yummy? Not! It's not something you'll only find in bakeries. It's not just available at tea time. This delicacy is now everywhere. I am not talking about food here. But rather, those flabby extras you see, giving out extra curves you don't need. Instead of an hour-glass, you will achieve this...

Not many knows this term. And maybe that's why they are guilty of committing the sin! Or claim ignorance. We are all guilty of it, I think. Not everyone has model-like abdomen. Six, eight packs of toned muscles. Even average size women can make this mistake too.

But for us big girls, with all those excess food we consume, muffin tops are unavoidable. This is especially so when we wear jeans. Of course the best solution would be to lose weight and doing lots of crunches, sit-ups and helluvalot exercises! But for short term solution, get yourself a waist corset. An under-bust waist corset will help to tighten the flabs and gives you a slimming effect. It usually comes in 2 colours, skin tone or black. Sometimes it has hooks on the front, or it will come with a spandex belt with zipper.


Where to get them? Easy, just head over to Giant or Tesco. Usually the price ranges from RM49-RM69. If you see the RM29.90, don't buy it. It never stays nor cover the stomach. Wide range of sizes available. From S right to XXXL. And if you wear it often enough, you will graduate to smaller sizes. I have a big tummy, and I fit a XL or XXL depending on the cutting of the corset. I have them in both colours to suit the clothes and undergarments I wear. Yes, it is not comfortable. But you get used to it. For me, because it helps hide my bulges, I will bear with the pain. Initial pain at least. As I said, you tend to get used to it.

Think of it this way, the corset also helps us with our posture. Because your tummy is tucked in and basically, you have to breathe in because it's tight, you tend to sit up straight. So, it's like killing 2 birds with one stone.

Mind you, those corsets you get from the hypermarkets are not long term solutions. If you do want to shape your body, go for the high-end brands.

Try it, and let me know if this was useful information...Good luck!
