This body shaper had been key to my workout and diet plan! When it comes to my fitness plan, it helps with keeping my abdomen area firm. Which allows more sweat and more work in that area. Lets just face it, my butt has gotten fat and I need to work out. I need to diet and I need to remain dedicated and get my self back in shape. This was the last piece I felt I needed. In reality I just needed to stop making excuses. Due to my midsection being so loose and out of shape, it has been cut so many times. This definitely allows me to get more muscle movement and firmness even when I can't feel it. I am happy I found this. I do plan on shoping more with this maker but this was a great start.
