Donna Ida’s White Jeans Bootcamp

White jeans are the denim holy grail. They can be one of the most feared items in your wardrobe but get them right and they will make you feel confident and sexy. As we look forward to the new Spring/Summer season, it is time to get set for wearing white jeans this Summer.

JeanieMilk_MansfeildGreyMarlMy Top Tips for getting body-ready for Summer:

Body Brushing

I love body brushing, it is like detoxing the skin! It is a pretty inexpensive way to start getting your body in shape for the season. Try and do it in the morning just before you have a shower. Make sure you brush the right way – towards the heart – and this can stimulate your circulation and get rid of toxins. Pay special attention to your hips and thighs and repeat everyday to ensure your skin is in the best shape.

Massage with Tetyana

Tetyana at Neville’s uses an amazing technique which literally seems to eradicate your fat. Exactly what you need to work on any problem areas. I go every month to keep in the best shape - it is super relaxing too.

No Sugar

My personal trainer Claire Woodward swears by this – what you put in you get out. Cut out sugar and you’ll immediately see the difference. If you find this hard she recommends a weekly blow out day where you can go crazy, and will keep you on the straight and narrow for the rest of the week.

Crunches, Lunges and Squats

There's no excuse for old fashioned exercise - it really works. If you want to be able to fasten your jeans, the best bet is crunches. Sit-ups, done properly will strengthen your core and give you a slim waist line. Lunges and squats are perfect to give you strong, lean legs and also a pert bottom. Take a look here at my exact programme from my The Skinny Jeans Diet and check advice from Claire Woodward aka Supergymchick. Follow this plan and by March you’ll be praying for the sunshine to come out so you have an excuse to wear your white jeans.

Top Tips When Buying White Jeans

Normally when buying jeans, we encourage you to buy them as tight as possible as they stretch when you wear them. However, you’ll wash white jeans pretty much every time you wear them so go true to size. This season wear top to toe white for the total look – crisp, fresh and modern. Finally always remember to wear nude underwear – a Hanky Panky Chai Thong is a Summer essential to wear with white jeans as they are super comfortable, low rise and VPL free.
