The Pursuit of Slim -or- Shapewear That Doesn’t Make You Wanna Scream

Don't look at the streaky fingerprints on my mirror. Dont.

A couple of years ago, I decided it would be a good idea to get a real, grown up job. One that required me to sit in an office, wear a blazer, and talk to other human beings, unlike the work-at-home job I’d been dealing with (and since, went back to). The benefits of being…
