Those who have tried on a pair call them their wardrobe staple. Two local moms are the brains and operation behind Hold Your Haunches pants. They’re designed to take you from the gym, to work, to a night out on the town, all while keeping you sucked in! The proof is in the pudding.
“We know what goes into the pants and then what the pants look like once it's put into it,” explains Erin Bickley, Hold Your Haunches Co-Owner.
Erin Bickley and Jenny Greer are Macon moms who love fashion, but wanted something more out of a pair of pants.
“Seeing underwear lines or seeing it on other people or being nervous about what we were doing to people behind us,” says Bickley.
“Makes us feel confident and comfortable and not embarrassed to be flabbing all around all over the place,” explained Jenny Greer, Hold Your Haunches Co-Owner.
The idea started with a pair of fashionable pants that can do more than Spanx and still be comfortable.
"So everything stays still and nothing jiggles and everybody looks slim and tight,” says Bickley.
They took it a step further and designed pants with health benefits by using medically graded compression fabric.
“So it does a lot of jobs that just one pair of pants would not do,” says Greer.
The entrepreneurs claim the pants help prevent spider veins, improve posture and reduce swelling.
Plus, there's an adjustable waist band that you can pull up or fold down. Two pieces of fabric are sewn together to keep you nice and snug. The materials are a combination of the traditional appeal of cotton and the performance benefits of modern fiber technology.
“It also has the compression in it for the muffin top,” explains Greer.
The designers call the pants universally flattering.
“And you don't have to have a big behind for it to be jiggly.”
