Most moms hope that upon the birth of their child, their once taunt tummy returns to its previous tightness. While this does almost miraculously happen in some cases, much to the chagrin of many moms, this is not always the case. If the birth of your child left you with some skin that just won't cooperate, no matter how many times you beg it to tighten up, consider some things that you can do to promote skin tightening and create a physical appearance that at least closely approximates the one you used to possess.
Occasionally, when your body grows quickly, stretch marks can appear. Marks may occur when you gain weight, get pregnant, gain muscle mass or even when you grow as a teenager. The cause is scarring under the skin, due to elastin and collagen breaking as the skin expands, according to Richard G. Glogau, a clinical professor at the University of California on the "Real Simple Magazine" website. Stretch marks can appear on nearly any surface on your body and may look red, pink, white or even silver. Unfortunately, there is no guaranteed way to get rid of stretch marks, but it is possible to decrease the appearance.
A garter is an elastic band that is worn around the thigh or a suspender-like strap that is attached to a girdle and a pair of stockings. There are two main purposes for wearing garters.

Either way, both types of garter are easy to put on and wear in the bedroom or out on the town.

Black jeans, which can look for sexy and sleek on the clothing rack, are one of those pieces of clothing that can diminish in beauty and quality quickly.

People tend to outgrow things, especially during growth spurts and weight gains. This may result in a change in dress sizes, making it harder to fit into their clothes, especially jeans. Some clothing materials are easier to adjust or stretch than others. For example, rayon materials are more elastic than denims or corduroys. Another added factor is the style jeans. Jeans made with garters on the waistline can easily stretch without any alteration; however, those made without garters are harder. Denim jeans can be expensive; therefore, rather than buying new ones people look into ways to stretch them.
A mommy corsage is a popular gift item for Mother's Day and baby showers. A mother or mother-to-be receives the corsage as a gift from their children, spouse, friends and other family members.

A mommy corsage often uses fresh flowers; however, it can also use flowers made from other materials and may include charms and other accessories that symbolize what the recipient likes or cherishes. The recipient wears the mommy corsage all day long or until the celebration ends, by pinning it on the upper left side of the clothing or by wearing it around the wrist.
