DivaBoos, you all have been out to events, (ie: cocktail parties, birthday parties, get togethers, etc) and seen many other ladies with very DivaBoo attire but then you see a lump here, or maybe a lump there…or better yet a “POUCH” sticking out out of some of your favorite designer dresses, blouses, pants or skirts.
If that didn’t jog a memory what about the “muffin top” (kinda speaks for itself) or “linebacker-back” (the top half of a womans body that resembles features of a football player). Yea, that girl whose outfit would have been a 10 had something been done to those “parts” that shouldn’t stick out. (Smh) *sigh Well, if you know of anybody or maybe that’s you, I have something that you may already know about but don’t know where to go or what to do to help those “issues”.
Wait..one more…what about the saggy “swing-lows” (breasts that would’ve looked nicer but that bra has them “swing-low”)?!?! Man! Even that “issue” could easily be fixed with some simple shopping and great tips!
Sometimes we all have to “Suck it and Pull it up” to get that Hawt dress, pair of jeans or fitted top on. Seeing how the average US womans weight is 162.9lbs – 164lbs….we have some slimming and shaping to maintain that DivaBoo feminine curvy appeal!

***NOTE: PLEASE GET FITTED FOR YOUR BRA SIZE AT LEAST TWICE A YEAR, AFTER CHILD BIRTH AND AFTER WEIGHT LOSS!
The MAJOR issue with saggy breasts is the WRONG bra size! A great fitting bra can do NUMBERS on your shape as well as posture, this is key to also maintaining that feminine curve successfully.
