Paris Lingerie Show

FullSizeRender

Seven ’til Midnight ended their first month of 2016 in Paris at the Salon International de la Lingerie. We’re always honored to be a part of this lingerie and swimwear show and loved seeing all the spectacles.

The show started on the 23rd of January and ended on the 25th. We presented our new 2016 Collection at the show, which included our launch of the Baby Got Curves Collection. This year, we had a dedicated catalog for the Baby Got Curves Collection which had nothing but great feedback about! We certainly are excited to be introducing our activewear capsule, Strike, as well.

During the show, 3 fashion shows were presented daily and were a treat to see. We had a great time mingling with retailers and customers alike. We thank everyone that came out to support us and stopped by! We cannot wait until next year.

It’s everyone’s resolution, every year, but how many of us keep it? Working out and actually working out the entire year shouldn’t be a pain and it shouldn’t be postponed!

With our 2016 Collection, we have a brand new line of activewear that will allow you to look cute while you work out. We have many styles available so this is just a peak into the capsule (which will be available in February!) We scoured the Internet to find some fun and easy work outs that you can do at home. No gym pass needed, just cute activewear 😉

From Health.com:

Low-belly leg reach
This move targets your six-pack and corset muscles. The corset muscles lie beneath the obliques, and are the body’s natural weight-lifting belt.

How to do it: Lie face up with knees bent to 90 degrees, hands behind head, and abs contracted. Keeping knees stacked over hips, lift shoulders and crunch up; inhale and hold for 3-5 seconds. Exhale and extend legs to 45 degrees; hold for 3-5 seconds while squeezing lower belly. Do 2 sets of 10-15 reps.

Switch legs and repeat.

From Oprah.com:

Incline Push-up
Assume a push-up position, but place your hands placed on a raised surface—such as a box, bench, ottoman or one of the steps of your stairs—instead of the floor. Your body should form a straight line from your ankles to your head [A]. Keeping your body rigid, lower your body until your upper arms dip below your elbows. Pause, and then push yourself back to the starting position as quickly as possible [B]. (The higher the surface on which you place your hands, the easier the exercise becomes—you can even lean against a wall if you need to.) If the incline push-up is too easy, do it the old-fashioned way, with your hands on the floor. Do 12 to 15 repetitions.

From Ace Fit:

Squat Jumps
Step 1
Starting Position: Stand with your feet hip-width apart, arms by your sides. Pull your shoulder blades down and engage your abdominal / core muscles to brace your spine.
Step 2
Downward Phase: Shift your hips back and down. This will create a hinge-like movement at your knees. Continue to lower yourself until you feel your heels about to lift off the floor. Try to maintain a flat back by bending forward at the hips. Keep your head directly facing forward and position your arms where they offer the greatest degree of balance support.
Step 3
Jumping Movement: With ONLY a very brief pause at the bottom of your downward phase, explode up through your lower body, fully extending your hips, knees and ankles. As your jump into the air, try to keep your feet level with each other and parallel with the floor.
Step 4
Landing: The most important components of the landing phase are correct foot position and avoiding excessive forward movement in your lower extremity, which places additional stress on your knees.
Step 5
Try to land softly and quietly on the mid-foot, rolling into the heels. Always push your hips back and down to absorb the impact of landing. Do not lock out your knees on your landing.
Step 6
Land with your trunk slightly forward, head aligned with your spine and back rigid or flat. Keep your abdominal / core muscles engaged, bracing your torso to protect your spine.
Step 7
Exercise Variation: As you develop your jumping and landing skills, you can increase the exercise intensity and complexity by: (1) Driving your arms behind you during the downward phase (illustrated), (2) driving your arms forward and upward during the jumping phase (illustrated), or (3) driving your knees towards your chest during the jumping phase. ?

It is suggested you first learn how to squat and land before attempting to jump. Once you have mastered the hip-hinge mechanism, begin with small jumps, but emphasize your landing mechanics. Only progress to more explosive jumps once you have mastered your landing mechanics.
