E IS FOR ELVIE

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Beauty -

Gwyneth calls it a “ham­mock” for our un­der­car­riage. We know it as our pelvic floor, an enig­matic group of mus­cles re­spon­si­ble for prop­ping up the uterus, blad­der, and bowel. The phrase “use it or lose it” is es­pe­cially apt here, as a weak one can re­sult in a mul­ti­tude of is­sues (low li­bido, in­con­ti­nence, and pain). There’s now an al­ter­na­tive to spend­ing hours in plank: an Elvie. In­sert the lit­tle egg-shaped de­vice up your you-know-where and it uses sen­sors and Blue­tooth to send the re­sults of five-minute clench­ing work­outs to your smart­phone via an app, giv­ing you re­al­time feedback.
