Davey Jones of the Monkey's said it best, "I'm a believer, I couldn't leave it if I tried..." : ) I can't believe it, but I am a true believer in the power of Spanx. I've got 2 weddings this month and a dress I love that is a tad clingy. What to do . . . suck it in and be conscious of it; wear a long sweater or do what everyone else does, wear the control top panythose and hope the lines don't show. Lo and behold, quite by accident, I actually came across some people buying and swearing by Spanx at a lingerie store. Spanx helps women earse the line on pantylines and those love handle bulges. Suprisintly in talking with some friends, I am finding out that everyone swears by them; and they are not necessarily just for special occasion. Some women are addicted to the cinched-in feeling and assuredness that there are no little bulges peeking through their clothes—so much so that they wear them everyday under everything including leggings.
The company makes footless and footed hosiery, tights, and body shapers to give women a slim and smooth look with any style dress or shoes. Spanx also sells bras (all-hosiery Bra-llelujah!), slips, panties (Power Panties), and lined apparel. Their products are anywhere from Macy's to, Walmart (they sell the Legg's Version for $6.97) to Bare Necessities.
If you don't know the story; Sara Blakely is credited with inventing footless pantyhose. She started up Spanx in 1998 with $5,000 of her own savings.
If you can't find them in your area, then here are a few places on line where you can find them : )
