7 Maxi dresses to fake a flat stomach this summer

So you didn't get to lose those extra 10 pounds you wanted gone by June. Now you're walking around with unpleasant and pesky belly fat, but that doesn't mean you have to starve your way to skinny.

The 6 most flattering one-piece swimsuits of the season

Swimsuit season is right around the corner--and guess what? A teeny, tiny bikini isn't your only option.

5 Sweat-proof fajas perfect for spring AND summer!

My cousin, who recently gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, was telling me how she has absolutely NO time to start working out. Who can blame her?

Her concern right now, though, is sweating like crazy wearing shapewear during the summer months. Ugh! Yea that sounds like a nightmare!
