The Debloating Leggings You Want in Your Toolbox

We’re simply so rattling happy to introduce you to Emma, the founding father of Emma Lou Athleisure. Lauryn loves her leggings and at this time Emma is right here to inform us WHY and HOW her leggings work, in addition to share the tremendous cool story about how she got here up with the concept for DEBLOATING LEGGINGS. You guys!

It’s true. There are debloating leggings on the market and should you don’t have your arms on some already, you’ll be ‘including to cart’ by the top of this submit (which incorporates some fab, quickie Pilates workout routines, btw).

With that, let’s welcome Emma to the weblog.


Hello TSC readers! My identify is Emma, and I’m the founding father of modern athleisure model, Emma Lou. I’m a licensed private coach & Pilates teacher, and was born and raised in California. I prefer to spend my time on the seashore, studying a fictional e book, scorching lady strolling, scouting for the most effective iced chai, and sketching items for Emma Lou. I presently reside within the lovely Southern California space. 

I wasn’t a kind of individuals who knew they wished to be an entrepreneur proper out of the gate. Highschool was fairly tough, and I transferred schools 4 occasions. I ended up graduating with a level in Enterprise Administration, however solely after altering my main 3 times (third occasions the appeal, am I proper of us?).

I used to be extraordinarily misplaced, so I held onto the one factor that remained fixed in my life: understanding. I felt at peace with my headphones in, on a run, or doing Pilates. I used to be good at it, so I believed that was my profession.  

After getting my private coaching certification, I acquired a job at a health club a few months earlier than the pandemic. Throughout this time, I educated ladies of all ages, and have become a sound board for many. A number of the complaints coming from my shoppers have been centered round their boyfriends, nutty mother-in-laws, and work drama, however probably the most distinguished one was their look. I simply couldn’t shake the truth that virtually each single one in every of my shoppers have been insecure about their abdomen. Extra particularly, the decrease abdomen. It was wild. Now that I had entry to all of this info on how ladies have been actually feeling (myself included), I felt it was my duty to repair it. 

Emma Lou got here to fruition once I was 19 years outdated. I observed there was a white house within the athleisure market since I saved listening to my shoppers complain about their bloating issues and the way it was an enormous insecurity for them. I understand now that each lady is aware of in regards to the infamous decrease abdomen, however the one product I might suggest to them that focused this space was a waist coach. Which, no shade, however they aren’t *tremendous* efficient or sustainable. Worst of all, you’ll be able to’t stroll into Dealer Joe’s sporting one with out everybody supplying you with the disapproving side-eye when you’re selecting out avocados.   

The Drawback:

There wasn’t a single product available on the market that wasn’t A) a waist coach or B) a digestible complement that aided ladies with bloating within the decrease abdomen space.

I grew up in California the place the water is gorgeous, however freezing, which meant I used to be at all times outfitted with a wetsuit. My wetsuit saved me good and heat, but in addition, every time I took it off, I’d be sweating. I lower out a bit of my wetsuit and had my grandma sew it into the waistband of an outdated pair of biker shorts. Hideous? sure. Efficient? Hell sure. The stitches have been brilliant inexperienced and confirmed by way of the shorts, however the neoprene held sturdy and I felt my tummy sweat instantly.  I wore it to the health club, on walks, and for grocery retailer runs for weeks and observed a lower in my decrease abdomen bloating, water weight retention, and simply general ~movement~ of issues since neoprene is a warmth trapping cloth and I used to be focusing on my decrease abdomen and waist.  

My shoppers, fellow health club workers, and associates, have been dying to get a pair of my magic pants after they noticed my outcomes, so I made a decision to make a small batch of them with a producer. I did a little bit extra analysis on the most effective cloth for the issue I used to be keen to resolve, and landed on what we’ve now, which is a recycled thermoplastic cloth, that has been scientifically confirmed to scale back water weight and bloating. There was an obvious bloating drawback in ladies, and most of us wrestle with it. It may be uncomfortable and inconvenient, which is why focusing on that space was my #1 precedence.      

The Answer:

Create a garment that harnesses textile expertise to focus on the decrease abdomen space with a scientifically confirmed cloth to focus on bloating and water weight. 

After a pair months of studying enterprise and self-help books (shoutout to You’re a Badass by Jen Sincero & Make investments It, Promote it, Financial institution it! by Lori Greiner for maintaining me afloat), researching, testing, and typing away, I now had a full-fledged enterprise that was now catching the eyes of publications like Vogue, Forbes, WWD, Popsugar, Shark Tank, & extra, due to our modern, fashionable pants. I launched through the pandemic in 2020, when everybody was on-line buying and searching for a little bit additional spice of their at-home exercises, so I actually acquired to know my customers and what they have been missing of their exercise wardrobe.   

Since then, I’ve been rising my model and including new items to the Emma Lou assortment (which I retailer in my room, below my IKEA storage mattress BTW), studying new issues (like what a triple-stitch is), and testing out new materials and designs that I hope my customers will love. I’m a die-hard temper board fan, so each piece often has a plethora of Pinterest photographs behind it. As you could know, proudly owning a enterprise isn’t low-cost, so fortunately I’m nonetheless capable of educate Pilates and personal coaching periods to gas my dream. And, instructing Pilates helps me hold my finger on the heartbeat of the always-evolving activewear tendencies so I can see what individuals are loving (& not-loving).   

As a Pilates teacher and personal coach, I’ve helped tons of ladies with their health journeys and get the within scoop on what workout routines are the most effective for lengthening, firming, & strengthening the abdomen and physique. Pilates is a good way to advertise mindfulness and turn into extra conscious of your motion. Beneath I’m going to share two of my favourite full physique strikes to elongate and tighten, which you are able to do wherever, so it’s a win win. 

️Chook Canine Crunch:

♡ utilizing a yoga mat and non-obligatory weights (my favorites are the Bala Bars), get onto your arms and knees. Concentrate on forming one straight line out of your fingertips to your toes, maintaining your hips straight. Carry your knee into your shoulder when you deliver your elbow again in the direction of the knee (in a 90 diploma angle). It is best to really feel a stretch in your abdomen, after which once you crunch, really feel your waist and glutes burn. 

Plank Knee Faucets:

♡ get in a plank place onto your arms and produce your knees shoulder width aside. Drop each of your knees onto the mat on the identical time to really feel the burn in your decrease abdomen. 

Sprinkle in these easy, but efficient, strikes together with your day by day routine or simply should you want a motion break through the day. AND to make it much more spicy and enjoyable, throw on a pair of our Glow Band leggings.

A few of my favourite items are the Elle Glow Band Leggings for a pop of colour and flattering flare leg with a bustier impressed high (that makes for a terrific going out high too BTW), and the Toby Glow band Biker shorts for a basic, staple piece, that’s buttery tender and is aware of your angles.
