Holiday 2010 Review: "The Girls" Women's Activewear

The days of sweats being the uniform of the stay-at-home mom are over. Many women are opting for the more flattering yoga pant either in a capri or bootcut style. Those topped with a tank, tee, tunic, or hoodie create a more tailored look than a sweatshirt and sweatpants without sacrificing comfort.

When I received a pair of Tummy Control Bootcut Pants to try out from The Girls, a brand I recognize from fine department stores, as well as T.J.Maxx, I was a little skeptical. I have tested various shapewear products in the past and the few that were effective against my post-twin belly were far too uncomfortable. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by these pants.

The Blu-Tec Control System can be found in all tummy control clothing offered by The Girls. This band of nylon spandex mesh hit at just the right spot to make my tummy look flatter. Aside from being effective, there are two things that I love about these pants . . . the Blu-Tech Control System is invisible from the outside and these pants are so very comfortable. In fact, I would say that these pants are one of the most comfortable pairs I currently own. My belly is about the size of someone who is 3 or 4 months pregnant, so I think that even women who are pregnant in their first and second trimesters would find these pants to be super-comfortable.
