SPANX it on!
There are times in a woman's life when we need a little helping hand, especially when we need a little something-something to make us look and feel fabulous. SPANX is that helping hand. And Sara Blakely - the genius creator behind SPANX - whether she knows it or not, is my fashion best friend.
I started wearing SPANX when I was pregnant with Benjamin. I was going to my 10 year high school reunion, 8 months pregnant. I hadn't seen 90% of my classmates since high school graduation. I wanted to look good, and I can honestly say, heading there 45 pounds heavier than I "normally" was (remember, I'm 5') wasn't something I was feeling especially confident about. I knew I was pregnant... but my thighs and butt, oh, my. They were a whole other issue all together. I had a particular dress in mind, but I just felt I wouldn't be able to pull it off. Then one of my close friend's suggested I try SPANX. I had heard of them, but had no idea they had a maternity collection. They did. And they were FABULOUS. I rocked that dress all night in my SPANX. I felt beautiful and comfortable and fabulous. My belly was big and round, but everything else was held in place. A dream come true.
I became hooked, and have been a devout SPANX wearer ever since. I'm always asked by women, "What are some ways to make myself appear slimmer?" I always, always, always recommend SPANX. They truly know how to hold you in just right. I especially utilized my SPANX after having my youngest 2 sons. Wearing jeans or trousers or dresses was something I dreaded. My body just couldn't fit in anything "perfectly." I needed a tummy/thigh/butt support... and FAST. SPANX was my answer and has continued to be.
So what would I recommend for moms? Here are my top 3:
SPANX's Higher Power. Oh, my. Talk about support. From your waistline up to your bust region, Higher Power gives you the perfect support. Not to mention eliminates panty lines.
SPANX's All The Way with Leg Support. Tummy control. And smooths down hips, thighs and rear. Loving it, huh?
And, of course... what started it all - SPANX's Footless. Wear pants with some hold and freedom. Bodyshaping at its finest!
What is also wonderful is how much of a variety SPANX offers now. There are camis and bras and apparel and panties. Also, SPANX offers something for every woman, including Maternity and Plus Size collections. So bring it on. And SPANX it in. You will love every square inch of it.
