My youngest son is butt height. So he often comes behind me and gives me a squeeze with his face firmly planted into my behind.
It’s cute and he doesn’t seem to mind, but I kinda feel badly for him. Of all the places you don’t want to put your face, it’s directly in my rear. But somehow, he still keeps giving me the butt hug.
The other day I received my order of Aspaeris Pivot shorts (note I paid for these…this is an unsolicited review) in the mail. My first reaction was, “I am going to fit into these how?” They’re basically as wide as my arm. As you can see in the picture – my super skinny 5 year old had them on and these were supposed to hug over my toosh. Riiiiiiiiiiiiight.
I put them on and felt like Vanilla was hugging my behind the entire time I had them on.
They were spectacularly tight and given the recovering groin injury, it makes me feel a little more comfortable “opening ‘er up” on my runs. So quote me on this Aspaeris, wearing your shorts is like one giant prolonged ass hug. And it feels mighty fine.
-Nothing is going nowhere. These babies cling tighter than two teenagers in a dark movie theater.
-With the two layers of fabric you’ll never be concerned you have camel toe.
-They come up Jessica Simpson jean incident high to suck in my 2 baby belly skin. I thought putting these on would be as difficult as putting canned biscuits back in the tube, but turns out they weren’t.
-I don’t know what they do technically, but they feel great.
The Could Have Been a Bit Better:
-I got in on the buy one red pair deal which I cannot possibly run in. I’ll have to use these for recovery only. I only run in black due to…ahem…bladder issues that creep up at unexpected times. Thankyoufirstbornson. End rant.
-No pocket. Even my skinny minny spandex shorts have a little pocket for a key on the back outside which I actually use fairly regularly.
-If you have to pee in the bushes midrun then it’s a little tangly & difficult to get back into them. Not that I ever do that, what?
That’s pretty much it. Since I’m on the mend from my groin injury I’ll just simply hope that this is the “added insurance” as I’m ramping up distances and times.
Do you squeeze your butt?
Do you compress? If so what’s your favorite compression item?
