Since Oprah made Spanx popular, everyone and their mother has been wearing them and falling in love. I got a chance to check out what’s new and I think you’re going to love it. From new options for pregnant women to sexy new items that you can show off, Spanx is thinking of the whole body, as they slim you down. Also, guess who they’re designing for, now?
Firstly, remember when you were complaining about how drab and decidedly unsexy shapewear garments are? Well, Spanx heard you and responded with Haute Contour. Designed to bring out your inner sex kitten, these designs do the same tricks as their less-pretty counterparts, except they look sexy doing it. They have items that promise to slim the torso and smooth out any unsightly lumps and bumps. These are covered in lace detailing and one even has removable sleeves. You can wear these as tops with some black slacks. Made of matte microfiber with a Chantilly lace overlay, these look divine. One of my favorites is the V-neck camisole. It has a removable ruffle around the neckline so you have options. And yes, this cute top is actually shapewear.
If you didn’t know this before, blame your friends for not letting you in on the secret. Spanx does swimwear! From modest one pieces to sexy tankinis, these do the slimming, tucking and smoothing while making you look sexy on the beach or at the pool. With details like ruching, chains and ruffles, these swimsuits are made to flatter your body.
I love that Spanx now has leggings and stockings that offer body shaping control. In fun patterns and colors, these are perfect fall transition items. You wouldn’t think something sheer could offer so much support. They also offer sheer panties in their Skinny Britches line that do the same hard work as their thicker counterparts. These are perfect for summer, when you want to keep it light.
Men, Spanx heard you. You need support and help, too! Not everyone has the chest of Brad Pitt. Man boobs are a reality and you don’t like them, either. Spanx Cotton Compression Undershirts are made to firm the chest, narrow the waistline, flatten the tummy and get rid of bulk, all while absorbing moisture in breathable cotton. I couldn’t believe it, either. They also offer Zoned Performance Undershirts. These target the abs and torso, while improving posture.
I just gave you a mini-education in Spanx. Go to their website and see it all yourself at www.SPANX.com.
