Getting My Tap On with Poise Microliners #SAMInYourPants

I wrote about my experience with Poise Microliner as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. All opinions are my own. #SAMInYourPants

As a toddler, I was scared of day care, scared of play groups and scared of new experiences.  My Mom tried one more desperate attempt to bring me out of my shell by enrolling me in dance class. From the moment I heard my tap shoes on the wooden floor, I didn’t look back.  I was a dancer.

Growing up, there are few places I spent more time than the dance floor.  By the time I was 13, I had joined a competitive dance company and I started to feel at home on the stage.  While I loved jazz, ballet, pointe, and lyrical, my passion grew for tap dancing.  At 16, I became a class assistant, began teaching my own classes at 20 and became the Director/Choreographer for our studio’s competitive team.

Flash forward 10 years and I was in the thick of growing the dance company and enjoying every single minute in my tap shoes.  At 30, I was overjoyed to be expecting my first child and taught dance classes at 9 months pregnant.  After having my daughter, I could not wait to get back to the dance floor.  I figured that since my body was so used to the daily routine, getting back in shape would happen in no time.

After receiving the “all clear” from my Doctor, I laced up my tap shoes and raced to the studio…but my body had other plans.  Apparently, delivering an 8 pound 4 ounce baby girl after 19 hours of labor can cause some damage to your pelvic floor.  Light bladder leakage (LBL) became an issue quickly.  How come I never realized tap dancing was so bouncy?

Teaching became stressful as my self confidence faded and as life got busier and without my body cooperating, I decided to quit.  While I enjoy watching my two daughters take the stage now, part of me really misses it, too.  But, I am excited to learn about the new Poise Microliner which may just be the solution I have been looking for.  It is the thinnest liner available in the light incontinence category from Poise and is virtually invisible while wearing my workout gear.
