While i was randomly shopping at the Mall i came across this new product ( new to me) in the Lingerie section SPANX. The lady explained that it was a "body shaping" undergarment designed to give the wearer a slim and shapely appearance. Hmmm now i am thinking should i Buy it??? aahh may be later need to check out some reviews on this product.
Sara Blakely is the founder of SPANX, Inc who received the Ernst & Yong Entrepreneur of the Year Award in 2002. About 5.4million SPANX power panties have been sold since the year 2000, and the global retail sales for SPANX products are estimated at $350 million for 2008. Now that is something but lets see what some of them have to say-
"The spanx made me look like Mrs Doubtfire in a fat suit, and the bra seemed exactly like my $5 one with a couple extra digits. I will admit I was less LUMPY but really for over a hundred bucks I was expecting something BIGGER [or less bigger, har har]"
First of all if you are plumpy, fat, your belly hangs over your panties there is nothing SPANX can do to save you from that. It is not a garment made to make you look like you have lost 20lbs NO NO! It is only a shaping garment giving you a smoother clean look when you wear a cocktail dress.
"Last night Eva Parker stepped out ... in SPANX! A shutterbug snapped the lovely "Desperate Housewife" star as she arrived at an Allure magazine party being held at Beso (her restaurant in Hollywood) and managed to catch a glimpse of Eva's "mid-thigh shaper."
So here you go Eva is a size zero and she uses SPANX! Many celebs wear SPANX including Jessica Alba and Oprah.

Check out their website for SPANX solutions Body shapers, Bras and Camis. Target also sells a cheaper version of SPANX if you don't want to pay $100.00 for an undergarment!

I think i am gonna try it out. If you are going to use it only for certain occasions you can just buy one and use it under any dress. If any of you have already tried it let me know what you think.
