Coming up on April 1st we have a fab Today's Special Value offer from luxury shapewear brand Vercella Vita, and we have exciting news, as popular guest Astrid van der Staaij will be back for the first time in five months after having her baby!
The TSV will offer two pairs of extra high-waisted seamless briefs that smooth away unwanted lumps and bumps, so you can wear your favourite clothes in confidence, and are perfect for helping to shape post-pregnancy tummies while things get back to normal.
These luxurious briefs are available in four colour options and can be worn as everyday underwear, providing the strongest level of compression ever available in a Vercella Vita TSV.
We caught up with Astrid recently to find out how she's taking to motherhood, and how Vercella Vita shapewear is particularly helpful for new and expectant mums like her.
A cute little boy. His name is Liam and he is utterly adorable. He was born mid-February, so he is about seven weeks old now.
And how does it feel to be a mum?
Being a mum is a really life-changing thing. All I think about is my wonderful son and how I can protect him against everything in the world – like a mother lion! When I look at him it is the best feeling I’ve ever had.
I’ve never would have imagined that you can feel so much love for such a little person. Of course, it is stressful and most nights you don't sleep more than one or two hours, but every second with him is worth it.
Have you noticed a change in your body after having a baby?
I noticed quite a few changes. The major change is that my skin is much looser than it was before; even though I went through some major weight changes of 25kg (give or take) a few years back, pregnancy is another thing entirely!
And why would you recommend Vercella Vita for expectant mums and post-pregnancy tums?
Vercella Vita helps a lot. During the pregnancy I wore their crop tops 24/7 for supporting my bust because the material stretched together with the skin, and since having Liam I've been wearing them as they adapt perfectly to the shape of my chest.
The higher waisted briefs and pants are also my favourites as they cover all the loose skin around my belly area. And as soon as I fit into my favourite dresses again, I will put on the slip dresses underneath because they really comfortable and provide support in my most needed zones!
Tune in from midnight on Monday night as we catch up with Astrid
