  • How to wear compression leggings – FAQ’s and style ideas.

    When I first began wearing compression my doctor instructed me to wear full-length compression. Living on the beach in California at the time, this prescription wasn’t an easy one. In addition to the year-round warm weather that made pantyhose a challenge, I ached to look more like my friends & wear my favorite sandals while still complying with my compression therapy.

    To navigate around this, I started cutting the feet off my compression pantyhose. This sneaky trick let me wear some of the clothes I craved, but left me with a few annoying side effects. The ends of my compression tights would begin to roll & fray after a few wears. I was also frustrated I couldn’t ever wear my modified “footless” tights alone. And so the idea for Rejuva’s footless compression legging was born …

    When designing our footless legging, I focused on 3 main features:

    1. A top like a true legging (no pantyhose control tops with feet cut off)
    2. Maximum opacity so you can wear & pair with tops other than dresses
    3. An ultra wide, yoga-pant-inspired tummy band

    After over 10 months of research, development, and countless prototype iterations, we finally had a version I loved & which I thought other wearers like me would love too. We launched it fall 2012 and they’ve been a best-seller since!

    Because of their popularity, we also get a lot of questions about them. Some of the most common are: “How opaque are they?” And “What can I wear them with?” Check out this video for answers to those questions and more …

    Can’t tune in to the video? Here’s a written recap of some of its top highlights.

    Q: What colors are available?

    A: RejuvaWear leggings come in 2 colors – a classic black and an indigo blue. The black’s designed to be your easy, everyday staple (afterall, who doesn’t love a slimming black pant?) while the indigo is more similar to a “jegging” in hue – think a bit more casual and fun. I especially love this color in spring and summer.

    Q: Are they opaque?

    A: YES! This is why they took so long to develop. These leggings offer full opaque coverage in the tummy and leg and are NOT simply a pair of pantyhose with the feet cut off. Rejuva leggings are knit with true medical grade graduated compression in the 15-20 mmHg support level that extends through the leg

    Q: Can I wear your compression leggings like a normal legging?

    A: Yes. Their compression is most effective when pulled down below your ankle so just be sure to pull down their bottom ends as low as possible when putting on. Other than that – rock just as you would a normal legging. Since footless, you can compare with most any footwear. Try with sandals or open-toed ballet flats.

    Q: How do you suggest wearing these day to day?

    A: Keep it casual by pairing with a v-neck, denim jacket, comfy flats, or sandals. Swap between seasons by trading out shoes & accessories. We love leather boots, sweaters and cozy scarves with leggings in winter. You can even pair our leggings with athletic shoes and a t-shirt as workout wear. Check out the pictures below for inspiration shots featuring the above suggestions.

    Q: How do I dress up my leggings?

    A: Take your leggings the more formal route by pairing with heels and a dress top. I love this combination for weekend nights out – my friends & I call them our Spanx on steroids! Ultra supportive and extra slimming too. Accessories can also help dress up your look. Try a statement watch, bangles, or your favorite rings. Their added sparkle and detail on your hands and wrist will accentuate your leggings when standing or sitting with arms by your sides.RejuvaHealth-Leggings-Style-Tips RejuvaHealth-Leggings-Style-Tips

    Q: Can you wear compression leggings for travel?

    A: Yes! Footless compression leggings are also great for flights, long drives, or any long periods of sitting or standing. Pair them with comfy sneakers and don’t forget layers if traveling via air– a must for varying plane cabin temperatures.

  • How to choose between full-length compression stocking styles

    So your doctor told you to wear full-length compression stockings.

    Knee-highs are out of the question so what’s the next best option: thigh highs, pantyhose, or leggings?

    Here are a few of the top pieces of advice I’ve learned over the years along with some of my favorite tips for choosing the best length compression garment for your needs.

    Video Highlights:

    When prescribed compression stockings, it’s not uncommon for a doctor suggest a full-length style. This could apply whether you have DVT, POTS, an advanced varicosity, or are coming out of surgery. Unfortunately doctors don’t always accompany this suggestion with the pros & cons of each style, making it hard to know which may be best for you.

    They are typically 3 full-length styles: thigh highs, pantyhose, and leggings.

    differences-between-full-length-compression-stocking-styles

     

     

    COMPRESSION THIGH HIGHS

    Knit from a nylon-spandex blend, these are typically topped with a stay-up band. The stay up band style varies by item and brand, however the most commonly used is enhanced with a sticky “dot” pattern on the thigh bands interior. This dot material is made from surgical grade silicone so offers more adhesion than a band you might find in a department store brand thigh high. The lack of a tummy top offered in a thigh high makes this style a great option for ease of getting on and off (think quicker bathroom breaks and dressing time than a full pantyhose). One potential caveat is that some find the silicone to slip down during the day. For many, this is remedied with an easy adjustment – a garment with proper fit shouldn’t move too much. So consider body type when evaluating whether a compression thigh high is right for you. We’ve found pear shapes often prefer pantyhose to avoid band slippage in the upper thigh area whereas straight shapes may experience adequate hold.

     

    COMPRESSION PANTYHOSE

     

    Compression pantyhose are similar in style to typical department store pantyhose, the largest difference lying in the firm compression contained in the legs. Tummy tops vary by brand. Some offer moderate compression like a shaping garment while others offer breathing room for comfort. When reading about different pantyhose across brands, be sure to check out the item’s waistband. Rejuva’s in particular are knit in a wide honeycomb style designed to hold up without binding. Personally, solid elastic bands give me tummy aches when worn for more than a few hours, so this is something I look out for to ensure I don’t have when shopping. Some come with adjustable waistbands (Medi brand for example). These are similar to what you might find in a child’s pant with a hidden button sewn into the waistband that you can adjust through a small opening in the elastic. I find pantyhose to be great for more formal occasions when you want shaping under a dress. They’re more difficult to get in and out of than a thigh high, but also offer the added benefit of light back support when standing for long periods.

     

    COMPRESSION LEGGINGS

     

    Footless variations aren’t for everyone so be sure to ask you physician whether it will adequately address your needs. Since the garment starts at the base of the ankle, it doesn’t offer compression in the heel area, which can render it less effective than full foot options for wearers with advanced conditions or varicosities. For those for whom footless compression is an OK option, these are a great style for summer & warm weather. I love wearing them with sandals, open top shoes and flats to feel a little more normal when dressing up in summer compression. Like pantyhose, they offer more torso support than thigh highs, lifting the bum & shaping the midsection. Rejuva’s are knit with an extra wide 4-inch waistband, a special feature we spent an extra 9 months developing and very rare in the world of compression. They also offer a nice hug of low back support.

     

    Takeaway decision-making tips

     

    When choosing a full-length compression style, be sure to consider your body type. What type of pants typically works best for you? If you like wider or boot leg cuts and have a full shape, a legging or pantyhose may be a better fit. On the other hand, if you like very tapered cuts and have a straight shape, thigh highs may also hold up well on your build. What kind of features do you like: Garments that stay up without any adjustment (ex: pantyhose)? Freedom offered by easy in & out (ex: thigh highs)? Weigh all of these factors when deciding which style may be best for you.

     

    Once you get them …

     

    Be sure to try them on! Proper fit is essential for effective compression therapy. You won’t wear a garment that doesn’t fit comfortably so be sure to give them a test run as soon as you get them home. If the first garment you selected isn’t quite the right fit, don’t be discouraged. Sometimes you have to kiss a lot of frogs to meet your prince. Call a support team member to see if you can gain added advice on what may be right for you. Explain any likes or dislikes. Chances are a well-trained customer service representative has heard similar questions before & can guide you in the right direction based on what they’ve heard from other wearers.

    Compression Tips For Travelers

  • Best Compression Stockings for Hot Weather

    It’s all fun and games - until the hot weather rolls around. Long-time compression wearers know the drill. Fall leaves bring chilly temps, longer pants, and the perfect fashion opportunity to transition summer outfits into autumn with the addition of compression tights. Winter follows with even colder months & an added excuse for additional layers. October through March glides by with little inconvenience to the compression wearer’s wardrobe.

    April showers bring May flowers and rising barometers too. As hemlines shorten and winter gear is stored for the season, summer elicits longer days, welcomed sunshine, and new anxiety for support stocking users. Heat makes the prospect of layering or wearing long garments unpalatable.  Sweat + stockings anyone? No thank you.

    The irony about the heat & the effect it has in making wearing compression more challenging is that it can also exacerbate leg symptoms too. It’s not uncommon for swelling to worsen in hot, humid weather.  Travel, a common partner to summer breaks, can also wreck havoc on leg health. To prevent DVT while flying it’s recommended users wear compression stockings, stay hydrated and move frequently. So while its tempting to abandon compression come June, the occasions and environments that accompany it make wearing it just as important as ever.

    We can’t promise it will be more comfortable wearing compression stockings than it would be to rock shorts & flip flops, but there are a few tricks for making it more bearable in hot weather.  Here’s our top RejuvaHealth tips on how to survive wearing compression in spring, summer, & beyond:

    Best Compression Stockings for Hot Weather

    Consider fabric finish – Knit from a finer denier of covered yarns, sheers offer a bit more breathability than opaques in the hot summer months. We also love the small hint of skin they allow to glimpse through the garment. Consider them a subtly sexy way to get the support you need while still appearing seasonally appropriate. If varicose veins or spider veins are of concern, sheer compression stockings are also a great way to provide coverage & smoothness while also sporting your favorite dresses, skirts, and shorts.

     

    Seek out moisture-wicking materials – Certain compression socks are knit with special moisture-wicking fibers to help with moisture control & temperature management. We particularly love CoolMax, but select variations & brands may include the likes of silver ions, and other materials too.

     

    Try open toe options – For days sandals are a must, opt for an open-toe compression stocking in a nude color way. We love pairing open-toe nude thigh highs with a maxi dress in summer as a sneaky way to get support while looking effortlessly chic.

     

    Step out of the black box – We all love a basic black but summer’s the perfect time to mix it up. Reflect light & repel heat by opting for lighter hues. Ashy grays, subtle nudes, and pretty plums are versatile but fun ways to incorporate compression knee-highs into your wardrobe without looking seasonally inappropriate.  And with the resurgence in popularity of fashion socks, a pair with shorts & your favorite ankle boots (or rolled up jeans & tennis shoes) is an adorable and heat-friendly option too.

  • How to Avoid the Cellulite Blues this Summer

    I swear bathing suit season comes around sooner with each passing year. In an effort to leave my board shorts behind on my next trip to the beach, I’m working on boosting my defenses against my cellulite earlier than usual this year. I’ve discovered there’s quite a collection of foods that help banish cellulite and leave skin with a smooth baby’s bottom feel. Who would ever say no to that?

    See below for some suggested foods:

    Bananas- Potassium, potassium, potassium. A great water reduction food, bananas help support the lymphatic system rid the body of excess fluids and water weight. An excellent choice during that special time of the month too.

    Cranberry Juice- I could drink cranberry juice every day for the rest of my life, but if you’re not as big of a fan as me that’s alright too. Just try adding some water to kick that extra bite or maybe consider using it as the base to your evening cocktail. Cranberry juice shows those fatty deposits who’s boss by helping flush out toxins built up in the lymphatic system.

    Whole grains- Give me more FIBER! Whole grains are packed with fiber to help the body speed up the detoxification process and exposing of built-up waste in the body.

    Fish- Stock up on fish and get your dose of omega-3 fatty acids. Not only will the oils make your skin look smooth and silky, but they’ll also aid in inflammation reduction. Consider adding some salmon to your next salad.

    Berries- The key to the berry is it’s an excellent source of vitamin C, which can help keep skin firm and battle unwanted cellulite buildup. Load up on berries by adding them to your morning smoothie or slicing a few for your yogurt snack.

    Asparagus- Work week got you stressed? Or maybe life in general is making you a worrywart? Asparagus’s folic acids help curb the stress and stabilize your mood, a big plus when trying to rid the body of cellulite. Too much stress hinders the body’s ability to excrete waste and causes fat storage in all the wrong places.

    Leafy Greens- We’re talking spinach and kale here, I don’t imagine a salad full of iceberg is going to do the trick. So stick to the darker green leafs that are nutrient rich and help the skin retain its moisture.

    And my personal favorite… drumroll please

    AVOCADO- So your skin is starting to realize the effect of gravity, but your soul’s not ready admit you seen quite a few blue moons? Consume more avocados and soon enough you’ll have everyone fooled- who knows the local postman might even mistake you for your thirty-year-old daughter. Avocados are rich in essential fatty acids which keep the skin strong and elastic. Cellulite flourishes under thinning skin so remember essential nutrients, like those found in avocados, and you should be able to keep cellulite at bay.

     

    Avoid the Cellulite blues

    Not quite ready to go out in public sans cover-up? Consider upgrading your typical workout pants to Solidea’s Silver Wave Legging or Capris to help give you that extra boost in courage. The garments are specially designed to help curb cellulite build-up and aid in the reduction of fluid buildup. Wear them a couple of workouts and I bet you’ll be reconsidering that new suit with the cute ruffled bottoms.

    Join the pledge to come out from under the towel and show off your legs this swimsuit season! I promise you won’t regret it- a little hard work and dedication goes a long way.

  • Finding Inspiration in Costume Design

    It’s easy to get lost in a movie.  From a soppy ending to an everlasting romance, we are sometimes left imagining our lives in the perspective of our favorite character and wondering what it would be like to “walk in their shoes.”  Although our imagination only takes us away for a moment, we’ve decided to go beyond that and attempt the looks from some of our movie favorites in real life.

    DIRTY DANCING
    1

    Memorable quote: “Nobody puts Baby in the corner!” – Johnny Castle

    In the summer of 1963, the preppy, Peace Corp bound, Daddy’s girl – Frances “Baby” Houseman – vacations with her affluent family at Kellerman’s, a resort in the Catskill Mountains.  After making friends with a bellboy, Baby finds herself  “carrying a watermelon” into the company of dirty dancing resort employees and immediately develops a crush on the “entertainment” bad boy, Johnny Castle.  When his dancing partner becomes unable to perform at a show, Baby steps in and takes her place.  Long story short, the two complicatedly fall in love and live happily ever after dancing (and lifting) their way into the night.

    Get the Look: In the last scene, Baby is wearing a conveniently unplanned chiffon dancing skirt, leotard and natural colored nylons.  Life isn’t always that easy – but attempt the look by trying the Medi Sheer and Soft Pantyhose.

     

    THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA

    2

    Memorable Quote: “I said to myself, 'Go ahead. Take a chance. Hire the smart, fat girl.'” –Miranda Priestly

    Andy Sachs, a recent college graduate and aspiring writer, lands the job that “a million girls would kill for” as co-assistant to the most powerful fashion magazine editor in the world, Miranda Priestly.  As Andy soon finds out, the job is much more challenging than she anticipated. The fashion-illiterate, naïve young woman gradually begins to learn her responsibilities and starts to dress more stylishly.  With her personal life spiraling out of control and her motives becoming more and more skewed, Andy decides to take a stand against Miranda after an eye-opening trip to Paris for fashion week.

    Get the Look:  Andy’s wearing a chic black and white outfit with some sheer pantyhose and heels.  So you don’t have access to the best fashion closet in the world…no big deal.  Attempt the look by trying the Solidea Naomi 140 French Lace Sheer Pantyhose.

     

    CLUELESS

    3

    Memorable Quote: “Isn't my house classic? The columns date all the way back to 1972.” –Cher Horowitz

    Cher Horowitz, a superficial – although good-natured – high school girl is beautiful, popular and fashion obsessed.  Always on a quest, she and her best friend, Dionne, take the “clueless” new girl, Tai, under their wing, teaching her their ways.  When Cher’s debate teacher, Mr. Hall, gives her a “C” on her report card, she acts as matchmaker to him and the sweet, lipstick toothed Miss Geist. Cher manages to shop, talk and charm her way out of anything, all the while surviving the ups and downs of her Beverley Hills adolescence…including her first love (uhhgh, as if!).

    Get the Look:  In this scene, Cher and Dionne are rocking some extremely fashionable knee-highs.  Although these mini skirts may be a little too “mini” for your liking (gotta love the 90’s), attempt the look by trying our RejuvaHealth Opaque Diamond Knee High. Be forewarned though, our socks aren't intended to go that high.

  • Effective (and Weird) Ways to Recycle Your Pantyhose This Spring

    Tired of just throwing away pantyhose after they wear out? Interested in getting a little more use out of them? US TOO! We’ve discovered that together we can help the Earth and prevent the immediate landfill disposal of compression garments by taking a different perspective on recycling.  We’ve listed a few, effective repurposing tips that are perfect for using around the house this spring.

     

    Dish Scrubber

    This trick is easy.  Start by bunching up a clean, old pair of pantyhose, adding a small amount of liquid dishwashing detergent and warm water, and begin scrubbing away at your nonstick cookware.  They can also provide for a great everyday scrubber for dishes.  Simply cut out the toe of the garment and cover an old sponge. You’re now ready to wash away!

    Secure trash bags

    If you’ve ever had issues with the trash bag liner slipping down into the trashcan, this is a perfect solution for you.  With an old pair of pantyhose, you can firmly secure the top of the garbage bag to your trashcan by taking the elastic waistband of the garment and tying it around the top part of the trashcan.

    Dust under the fridge

    Tie an old pair of pantyhose to a wired clothes hanger, and then secure it with a rubber band.  The pantyhose will help pick up the dust by simply doing a quick sweep underneath those hard-to-reach places, like the refrigerator.

    Prevent soil erosion in houseplants

    It’s a great feeling seeing how well your house plant is thriving and surviving! However, we all know the plant eventually outgrows its pot, forcing you to transfer it to a more comfortable abode. Use a pair of pantyhose as a liner for the new pot.  This will allow for excess water to flow out without dehydrating the rest of the soil.

    Keep deer out of your garden

    Spring brings new life to the natural world around us.  As much as we love it, the animals typically don’t mind their manners while feasting away at the blossoming garden you put so much work in to.  Prevent this from happening by filling the foot portion of pantyhose with human hair and placing it around the outer parts of the garden. The smell is very unappetizing to deer, preventing them from coming back for seconds.  Over time, the hair begins to lose its scent – be sure to refill the pantyhose with new hair once every week.

    Cover a kids’ bug jar

    Childhood is all about those warm nights of catching fireflies in a mason jar.  Keep those magical bugs safe by covering the top of the Mason jar with an old pair of pantyhose.  Simply cut a large square from the garment, and then secure it safely to the jar with a rubber band. This will prevent you from the daunting task of cutting holes in the aluminum top.

    Test a sanded surface for snags

    Thinking of starting a new project that involves woodwork?  Test the surface of the wood by placing an old pair of pantyhose over your hand and running the garment along the surface.  If the nylon catches at any point, the wood still needs to be sanded.  Continue the test until the garment smoothly runs along the surface.

    Clean your pool

    Want a more effective way to skim the debris off the surface of your pool water?  An old pair of pantyhose serves as the perfect self-made pool net.  Simply cut off the leg of the garment and attach it to a pool skimmer basket.  This will help catch the pesky dirt particles and hairs that typically clog the pool’s filter unit.

    Make a paint strainer

    Use an old pair of pantyhose to filter and remove the lumps of paint that form in an old paint can.  It’s as simple as cutting the pantyhose then stretching the fabric over a clean bucket or other recyclable.  Hold the garment in place with a rubber band or the waistband.  Check to see if the garment is secure then slowly pour the paint over the piece of pantyhose and into the paint bucket.

    Buff your shoes

    Bring out the shine in your freshly polished shoes by buffing them with a medium-length strip of pantyhose. It works so well, you may retire that chamois cloth for good.

    Keep your hairbrush clean

    There is nothing pleasant about cleaning out a hairbrush covered in hair.  Cut a piece of the pantyhose in unison to the shape of your brush, the push it through the bristles of a clean hairbrush.  Next time you go to clean the hair off, simple pull up the pantyhose for easy removal.   Replace it with a clean strip.

    Hold mothballs or potpourri

    Looking for an easy way to store mothballs in your closet or to make sachets of potpourri to keep in your dresser drawers? Pour either ingredient into the toe section of your recycled nylons, knot off the contents, and then cut off the remaining hose. If you plan to hang up the mothballs, be sure to leave several inches of material before cutting.

  • Spring Into Compression

    Spring is just around the corner and with the change in weather comes a change in wardrobe.  While most woman make a quick trip to the mall to brush up on this season’s latest trends, those of us compression wearers find the trip to be more difficult.  We’ve listed below a few outfits below for the versatile, modern compression garment wearer as the Spring season finally begins.

    The Working Woman

    1

    With today’s versatility in fashion, it’s become more and more feasible to balance professionalism with a chic sense of style.  Having said that, many working women have come to find this to be a bit difficult, especially when trying to incorporate compression hosiery and the stereotypical limitations that come with it.  RejuvaHealth’s signature collection throws out all of the stereotypes and simplistically allows for a fashionable and sophisticated look that’s perfect for the workplace.  Pictured below are the RejuvaHealth Sheer Dot Pantyhose, a crisp white, classic and casual tuxedo dress and some strong heals.

    The Wedding Guest

    2

    With wedding season fast approaching and the temperature outside rising, finding an outfit to wear can be quite the dilemma – especially if you’re restricted to compression hosiery.  It’s always important to remember comfort when choosing your outfit of choice.  Weddings require a lot of sitting, a lot of eating and a lot of dancing – the last thing that you want to worry about is a wardrobe malfunction halfway through the buffet table.  Keep things simple and feminine while at the same time being seasonally appropriate.  Pictured below are the Solidea Magic 140 Sheer Pantyhose, a beautiful lace blouse, an adorably printed skirt, a simple clutch, and a pair of black pumps.

    The Errand Runner 3

    Running a quick errand is easier said than it is done.  Sure, you could just jump in the car in your sweatpants and a baggy t-shirt.  Although, any casual trip to the grocery store can turn into one of the biggest social events of the month.  It’s worth the extra effort of looking a bit more presentable in account of the unavoidable.  With the right outfit, you can actually pull off the effortless look with your compression knee highs.  Pictured below are RejuvaHealth’s Opaque Diamond Knee Highs, a cozy pair of loose slacks, a denim button up (with a slight front tuck), a comfortable pair of flats and the perfect tote.

  • On Your Mark...Jet Set...GO!

    Traveling can be a very transportal experience — literally.  Regardless of where you are headed, your trip begins the second you walk out of your front door… so, why are you still wearing your beat-up sweats to the airport? To make your adventure feel all the more special (and save space in your suitcase!),your traveling outfit should be as put-together as what you're going to be wearing on your trip. No need to sacrifice comfort, though — there are plenty of strategically cozy pieces that are mega stylish, as well. Now, put down those shearling boots and step away from the velour: We've put together a mini lookbook to satisfy your traveling needs.

    International

    1

    Cozy, comfy pants and loose V-Neck, a bomber jacket, a light scarf, RejuvaHealth’s travel friendly knee highs, the perfect rollaway, and a classic pair of flats – this outfit has the potential to take you anywhere, while at the same time keeping the changing climates (and cultures) in mind.

     

     

    Domestic

     2

    A light carry on is a must, a pair of boyfriend jeans, a soft striped shirt, a lightweight jacket, converse sneakers and RejuvaHealth’s travel friendly knee highs --  this outfit is just enough preparation for some kind of delay (knock on wood).  It comfortable yet still cute enough to wear for two days!  What better than way to show your patriotism with some stripes, converse and a (less obnoxious) red jacket?!

    Here are some helpful travel tips:

    • Always pack the essentials in your carry on – toothbrush, change of clothes, face wipes, deodorant – you can never trust estimated time of arrivals...for you OR your luggage.
    • Wear compression socks – during a long flight, your legs can get restless and achy from the poor circulation you’re getting from sitting too long (not to mention the altitude).  This is an easy and preventive measure for health issues that can be sparked when flying.
    • Bring some type of entertainment (I.e. a book, headphones, i-pad).  The flight magazines get boring after a while – trust me.
    • Choose your seat ASAP – the instant you book your flight, choose your seat.  Flights are becoming more crowded now and the only thing worse than getting stuck beside a smelly person is getting stuck in between two smelly people.
  • Valentine's Day Suggestions for Any Relationship Status

    Valentine’s Day (aka Single’s Awareness Day to those of us less fortunate) is the day most people love to hate, hate to love, or love to…well, love.  We’re no expert on the subject, but we know not to leave anyone out.  Having said that, we’ve listed a few suggestions below for every kind of girl….attached or not!

     

    For the Single Girl – Love to Hate

    orig-14103591

    Suggestions:

    1)      Stock up on chocolate…tomorrow.  Don’t give in to the temptation of buying those overpriced, heart shaped boxes [for yourself] just yet.  Fact – tomorrow everything will be half price and just as adorable as the day before.  Everyone deserves a box of chocolates around the hol-love-days.

    2)       Carpe diem!  Go out and have fun.  Embrace being single and free and have a martini with some of your girlfriends (or guy friends).  Don’t have any takers?  Be independent and go out by yourself.  Confidence goes a long way and says a lot about your character.  There will be lots of singles out – you never know who you might meet!

    3)      DON’T get on Facebook or Instagram.  Trust me on this one.  (see below)

    What to Wear:

    Something that exudes confidence and is fun - Try RejuvaHealth’s Lavish Leopard Pantyhose

     

    For the Dating Girl – Love to Love

    how-to-lose-a-guy-in-10-days-7

    Suggestions:

    1)      It’s okay to be cheesy – everyone (really, everyone) is doing it!  Brag about the flowers.  Enjoy the breakfast in bed.  Try the weird shaped chocolate without looking at the box.  This day was designed for you… at least pretend to like the putt-putt golf and make an attempt to tolerate the hand holding in the movie theatre.  Love is in the air!

    2)      Can’t afford anything an expensive gift?  We’ve all been there.  Good news is that some of the best gifts you can give are home-made.  They show that you put thought and time into the person you care about.  Make some heart shaped strawberry shortcakes or tell him the 52 ways you love him through a deck of cards.

    What to Wear:

    Something a little dressier than usual and a bit flirty – Try RejuvaHealth’s Sheer Dot Thigh High

     

    For the Married Girl – Hate to Love

    Suggestions:

    1)      Romance, romance, romance.  Today is the day to rekindle the flame between you and your lover (Yes, I said it). In layman’s terms, send the kids to Grandma’s house for the night.

    2)      Be sure to clarify the gift giving this year and stick to it.  There’s nothing worse than disappointment on expectations.  If you decide not to give gifts, don’t give gifts and don’t expect to get anything either.  If you decide you want to exchange gifts, be sure to set a price point and stay within budget.  It’s never good to be upstaged in the gift giving arena – although, you’ll gladly accept the diamond!

    What to Wear:

    Something sexy and out of the norm – Try RejuvaHealth’s Floral Pantyhose
