Terrified, I said , "No way! If I miss, I'm screwed for the rest of the wedding because I will have to ditch the Spanx and reveal the burrito baby I am hiding!".
She fed me a few more cocktails and coaxed me back into the ladies room where she told me to literally sit, spread, and lean forward. I was terrified to say the least, but Carolyn was not letting me at out that stall until I performed. And low and behold... a few rum and cokes and a glass of water later, it worked!
Now ladies, you are going to have to trust me on this one. I know it's scary but I swear it works! I highly suggest the buddy system because it will ease your fears. Carolyn was taught by her friend Emily...and now girls, it is my turn to pass the torch.I know you are mortified,when I told my good friend Josie, she was too....
But I explained to her she needed to focus on all the free time she will have once her Spanx bathroom trips are reduced from 25 minutes to 5! And I pointed out that I am basically issuing a Public Service Announcement... after a few glasses of wine, she reluctantly agreed to let me show her just how the deed is done.
Step 1: Do not be afraid to sit on the seat . Think of the Spanx as a seat cover.Step 2: In a seated squat position lean as far forward as you can...
(without falling in of course) Now take a deep breath... and relax
When you lean forward all the way the slit will open naturally like this...
Step 3: Trust your Spanx will not spill!The kind like this where your bra attaches to the Spanx.
I hear it tends to shift the slit just slightly to the right...which I am sure you can imagine could be...a little messy.
CHEERS TO BLISSFUL BATHROOM BREAKS IN YOUR FUTURE!
