I have, or should I say, HAD a problem. I need to wear belts with most of my jeans and capris, but I hate the bulk that I get when I wear a belt. Plus, I always feel like they are digging into my skin, and in general, not flattering. The belt holes are sometimes too far apart so that either means my belt is too tight or too loose. When my belt is too tight, the result is usually a muffin top, which I despise. If it's too loose, it defeats the purpose of even wearing a belt. The annoying part is, nobody ever sees my belt, but they can see the bulk that comes with it. Also, I like to wear a fashion belt over my shirts or sweaters, but still have to wear a regular belt with my jeans because I don't want them falling down or gaping open in the back and so I hate that even though I'm wearing a belt over my shirt, I still have to wear one under (and usually you can tell).
I have FINALLY found a solution. I can't even begin to tell you how happy I am about the invisibelt. I contacted Kathy Kramer the founder of invisibelt and she graciously agreed to send me some belts to try and also give away a belt to two of my readers. Kathy has received a lot of publicity with the invisibelt. It has been featured on the Today Show, the View, in People, Lucky, Life&Style, Star, Health, Shape, Family Circle, Better Homes and Heart & Soul.
The following are pictures of me with my new invisibelt on. Kathy sent me the black, clear, and glamour (lace) belts to sample. I should have taken a before picture, but just trust me when I say, you could see the bulk of the belt before, and now you can't.
I am not quite sure why I haven't gotten an invisbelt before now, especially with the reasonable price of $20! As soon as my package arrived, I switched my bulky leather belt out for the invisibelt and let me tell you, I'm in heaven. I can't even tell I'm wearing a belt, yet my pants are staying exactly where I need them to be. As I'm sitting here typing, I realize that the invisibelt is also much more comfortable because you don't have a metal piece digging into your stomach when you sit down. The adjustment process is so easy and you can custom size how you want it to fit. Seriously, I can't say enough good things (and no, I'm not getting paid or told what to say).
Kathy has also teamed up with Liz Lange to bring you the invisibump which is a belt designed for expectant moms as well as for post-pregnancy moms. The invisibump is a smooth, clear, elasticized belt that is virtually undetectable. The added stretch differentiates it from the invisibelt, making it a comfortable functional choice for pregnancy. Liz Lange says, "the invisibump is totally unique and fills a tremendous void in the maternity market, so I'm thrilled to be a part of it." I can't wait to get one for my next pregnancy!
The invisibelt and the invisibump are one size fits most, but they also carry plus sizes. Kathy has also created a girl's line, so check that out too.
