Are you ready to get Spanx-ed?



A friend of mine brought this topic to my attention yesterday. She was so excited about this new found item that she immediately told me I should do a post on it. I am very familiar with Spanx, and I suppose I mistakenly took it for granted that we were all well acquainted with them, but is seems that I was wrong in my assumption. Spanx is an awesome bodyshaper that helps to make you look a size smaller. They are made of stretch micro fiber that provide extra support for the tummy, thighs, and buttocks. You will also get rid of the panty lines with these beauties. Spanx was listed as one of Oprah's top favorite items in 2000 and it continues to be one of the necessities for celebrities and females all over the world. The pic above displays Oprah, Jessica Alba and Gweneth Paltrow; three celebrites that have publicly announced their love of this product among many others. The great thing about Spanx is that they are available in a size A- to G. You can usually check the size chart to see which size applies to you.

Here are a few of their items:





I usually purchase mine from 'Neiman Marcus Last Call' and I've never paid more than $20 for one because they are normally on sale. I think that they are regularly priced at about $30 depending on the particular item. I am pretty sure they are sold at any sizeable department store such as Bloomindales, Nordstrom etc. However, if none of these stores are convenient for you, you can check them out online at Bare Necessities

Let me know how they work out.

I bought my first pair of spanxs a few months ago to "slim" me down so I could wear this cute dress to my cousin's wedding. I absolutely LOVE them! They are the best!

I've got Spanx-ed years ago and own several pairs. I just had a friend send me an 8th Anniversary Friends and Family promo code (spanxanniversaryg) for 30% off their site through the 14th. You hear a lot about the shapers, but their bras are amazing too!

A Hearty thanks to our Anonymous Discount Finder:) We really appreciate the code that you posted, also the heads up on the bra.I myself have yet to try the bra but I think I will definitely be purchasing one.

I have 1 pair of spanx, which I unfortunately have never even worn out of the house. They make clothes look great, but i dont like all those layers of tightness up on me.
I should make a greater effort to wear them from time to time...

Celebrities LOVE Spanx. For example, on the site below look at the third video. At 1 minute 34 seconds, Sarah Duchess of York (Previously known as 'Duchess of Pork', remember?) lifts up her skirt and shows off her Spanx:
