**I have a feeling I know in what direction most will go this week, so of course I’ll take the opposite route.

I thought I’d try a humorous haiku today. Sorry––not sorry. 😉

Squeeze me tightly

Keep me warm and together

My faithful girdle

Spanx, anyone?

Food Porn 😛

Hot and scrumptious

As I indulge pants tighten

Foodie’s dilema

    Very tasty! 🙂

    My mind went a similar direction:

    waist cinched, my cheeks burn
    from a lash of displeasure
    forgive me, mistress!

      Ha, ha! Well, the girls in the picture sure are!
      For women, what we wear underneath our clothes is as important as what we wear. I’m not a fan of the old fashioned girdles but spanxs are a girl’s best friend.😉

      I usually try to make food like this myself, so that I may cut calories wherever I can. 😉 Thank you!

    I like how the two poems are connected (pressure from spanx and expansion from within) a fun take on the challenge 🙂

    😀 Spanx and Food! None of the ladies pictured need Spanx. Why?
    I often find myself in a foodie dilemma.
    Great work as usual, Vashti!

      Thank you Dean! Sometimes it’s good to wear spanx when you want a smooth uninterrupted line under your clothes. With the right spanx you don’t need to wear a bra or panties because it cab function as both. So you get a smooth silhouette under a dress or pantsuit. 😉
