    I think many of us "girls" would like to weigh

    less and have better tone in our abdomen region. While I do adore corsets and waist cinchers, it would be so nice if I could fit better into a size 14 or less. It is an ongoing struggle that I may have to get comfortable with as I mature. What do you all say?
