With A Little Help From Our Spanx....

Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive… except when it comes to a great undergarment from Spanx.   And with the holidays just ahead, a little deception from this excellent performance wear line can help hide a multitude of sweet and tasty sins.  As a woman, I’ve learned that no matter what shape or size you are, we women all need a good support system.  So like a gift from the Gods above, Spanx gives us exactly that.  We all want to look great in our clothes.  Some people prefer the helping hand of a bra with back support, while those of us who are less top heavy, so to speak, prefer the security of a gentle hug around our caboose.  With Spanx you can find the support and discretion you need to proudly strut your stuff from head to toe. They cater to every shape from petite to curvaceous, including those lucky ladies with legs that seem to go on for days or the mommy to be who refuses to give up on her fierce style simply because there’s a bun in the oven.  Pictured below is a sampling of the sleek solutions to keeping things under control.  Spanx has a surprisingly large line of undergarments to choose from –and proudly works with 5 major retailers who carry the Spanx brand online, for maximum convenience.
The second best thing about Spanx is how comfortable they are. Unlike traditional girdle-like garments, Spanx products are soft and breathable – with no embarrassing tight bands that roll down at the belly when you sit or bend either!
Spanx has such a great line of tights and pantyhose. There are cute designs like the hounds-tooth tights pictured above, and they even carry fishnets. The tights pictured above center are fantastic. They are reversible. One day you can wear brown and another day you can turn them inside out and wear blue.  How cool is that?  Most importantly, woman who are pregnant want to feel sexy and they deserve it.  Spanx has some great pantyhose that give you sexy legs and full tummy support.
As a big fan of strapless dresses and capri pants, these three shape-wear undergarments are my favorite.
Where can I buy Spanx?
In 1998, Spanx creator Sara Blakely found herself in a fashion dilemma. What she wanted to wear one day was her favorite pair of cream colored pants with some open-toe shoes. Sara was not a fan of the thong, nor did she want a visible panty line. So, she did what any fashion driven woman would do. She grabbed a pair of pantyhose and cut off the toes. Voila — she now had footless pantyhose and did not have to compromise her open-toe shoe.  That, my friends, was the birth of Spanx.  Sara Blakely now offers women, all over the world, freedom from visible panty lines, clingy fabrics, and tummy bulges. Thank you Sara!!
