The Day Shapewear Changed Forever
How is it that one brand can change lingerie and shapewear forever? And what exactly made the founder of this internationally famous company do something that altered an entire industry? Well, the reason is more mundane and simple than you may realise. Spanx founder Sara Blakely was getting ready for a party when she realized something terrible. She didn’t have the right undergarment to provide a smooth look under white pants. Armed with scissors and sheer genius, she cut the feet off her control top pantyhose and the Spanx revolution began! With a focus on solving wardrobe woes, the Spanx brand has grown to offer bras, underwear, jeans, pants, active and more. So let’s take a look at some of the great items they have to offer and see what the fuss is about.
Spanx Thinstincts Mid Thigh Shorts
At UK Tights, some of our Spanx best selling products are their Higher Power Shorts. They smooth from just under the past to mid thigh and this is a core product for Spanx. It’s heavy duty but boy does it work. This garment is seamless for the ultimate in stretch and recovery and has the perfect shaping zones which target the tummy and provide 360 degrees of shapewear with gradual release for comfort and movement. It’s high waisted design eliminates the muffin top effect. And there is a no slip strip to keep this in place. Ruching detail at the bottom gives that perfect shape. And there is a dig free leg opening for that smooth look. A brilliant product and much loved by Spanx girls far and near.
Spanx Thinstincts Convertible Slip
This super control slip is comfortable enough to wear all day and every day and is one of Spanx best selling items. The full slip is made with seamless yarns for the ultimate in comfort. The fabric provides stability, support and a ride free fit. There are seamless zones and the designers have made sure that the seams have a flat edge. You can wear your own bra and briefs if you wish. And the straps are adjustable but they also mould to your body. There’s a convertible strappy or bandeau neckline and so the neck and upper arm area so if you want your shoulders to be free, it won’t rub or irritate the skin in any way.
Spanx Undie Tectable Smoothing Briefs
If you’re looking for light weight shaping then this product is perfect for you. The Spanx Skinny Britches Capri offers sheer shaping power that keeps you smooth under pants and cool no matter the season. Layer this product for customised colour and compression. You can wear this under your trousers and they offer a flawless look on the bum. Ultra light fabric firms the hips and the lower tummy as well as lifting the bottom. None binding waistband and fabric means it can lay flat against your skin and the laser cut leg and edges elevate pinching or bulging. There is of course a cotton gusset for comfort.
