If I Buy Nicer Underwear Will It Make My Butt Look Smaller?

Victoria’s Secret just got a whopping order from me. I WAS in need of some new underwear and bras. After the pregnancy, I felt like I deserved a fresh start. But the purchase had a hidden agenda. Let me explain.

I’m usually not suckered in my marketing. You can’t fool me!!!  Except… when it comes to underwear and bathing suits. For some reason, my first instinct is to believe that if I buy item X, then I will look exactly like the model if I put item X on.

And I get all excited too. It’s like my quick fix. If I buy these cheekies (which I did), then it’s equivalent to hitting the gym for a full year. No more cellulite. NO! The underwear will take it away, won’t it? My mind says this loud and clear. And then a small voice inside my head reminds me that I AM INSANE. But that logical person never wins. If I buy the underwear…. my butt will get smaller.


$300 worth of lingerie is coming in a few days. Stand by for the disappointment.
