Booty Shapers keep your boots upright and crease free ~ Giveaway

Although this blog is intended for the purpose of communicating with present and future customers, fans, and friends of The Baby Store Plus, as the owner of this business, you will find my personal thoughts, opinions, and family life sprinkled throughout. This post is one of those instances when my personal overlaps the business...

As the owner of an online business who works with bloggers to help promote our store and products, I get tons of emails asking to do a product review for us. So many that I have created a separate folder in my email program specifically to organize the requests. Recently I was contacted about reviews, but from a different perspective. The email came from the representative of a company called Tomoson { } As a blogger you may already be familiar with them, if not, you definitely should go check out their website. They are sort of like a match-making service to bring us business owners together with you review bloggers.

While I was on their website reading about the service as it relates to my business, I also checked out the blogger side of the service. That is when I came across a product that I thought was such a neat product, and so needed in my household, that I signed up on the blogger side and applied to do a review for that product. I even offered to post the review on my store's blog rather than my personal blog because the readership is higher on this blog. To my surprise, and complete pleasure, the company agreed to let me do a review of their product on my store's blog. So here it is.

The product that I was so excited about is the Booty Shapers. What a great name! This is an extremely simple product that is inexpensive yet so valuable. It is an inflatable insert that goes inside your boots to keep them standing upright and uncreased. I am a boot wearer. I wear knee-high leather boots in the spring and summer, and snow boots in the winter so something that keeps my boots in shape when not on my feet is a great product.

The TrendsFormer company sent me two sizes of Booty Shapers, one set for knee-high boots and one set for calf-high boots. When I first opened the package it smelled like a kids swimming pool does when you first take it out of the package. The instructions say that you can air them out for a day to allow the smell to dissipate but I was too anxious to try them out, I mean look at my poor boots. Besides, I really don't care if the inside of my boots smell like a swimming pool instead of my feet.

So I unfolded the long flat tubes. They have a black leopard print that I thought was kind of fun. They have several cute prints available. Then I commenced to blow these tubes up. They inflate just like a kids floaty or swim toy. You have to sort of bite down on the fill valve to open it up to allow the air in. Easy enough. Then you stand your boots up and insert the Booty Saver inside. Give it a little extra push to make sure that it is down in the foot area a bit and that is it! Your boots are standing tall.
Here's what my boots normally look like when I am not wearing them...

Lovely huh? Laying over, getting a big crease in the side, not to mention getting dirty laying there on the floor. Especially when the hubs and I walk in the closet and step on the legs as they lay out in the walk-way. Another not-so-nice thing about your boots laying in the floor like that...bugs can crawl in them. We live in the country so I am always worried that one day I will slip my boot on to find a spider or something in there. Once I did have a mouse in my boot. Talk about scary, yet extremely funny. I picked up my boot and the little guy hopped out the bottom of the unzipped edge. Scared us both nearly to death I think. So that is one really good reason to use Booty Shapers right there, lol.

Here are my boots Standing Tall with the assistance of Booty Shapers...

And below are my boots a full week later, still standing up, no loss of air, not leaning over. They look great! I was concerned that they would deflate over time because one of my Booty Shapers had a problem with the fill valve plug not wanting to stay inserted. I pulled out a piece of duct tape (old reliable) and pushed the plug in and taped over it. It worked like a charm. No loss of air after almost 2 weeks now. I am wearing my snow boots every day now so I didn't get an opportunity to use the calf-length (small) Booty Shapers yet, but I will when the seasons change.

I can honestly say that I would recommend Booty Shapers to anyone with Boots in their closet that want to them keep looking nice. They are priced at just $9.99 a pair at online stores. Plus, the packaging is just the right size to be a great Christmas Stocking-stuffer! You could even inflate them and insert them in a Christmas Stocking just for fun!
