Popular bodywear company Spanx will be opening up its first standalone stores in three major malls on the East Coast. Spanx are the best friend of many stars, including Beyonce, Kim Kardashian and Tyra Banks. They have taken the world of women by storm, transforming bodies and hiding essentially any imperfection. Personally, I’m not sure how I feel about them.
Spanx shapewear comes in many designs, from underwear, to larger briefs, to a full tummy tucking silhouette. The company even recently added a men’s line which I believe is selling significantly well. I considered getting a piece to wear under my prom dress to make sure everything looked nice, but since it had a low open back, I was unable to find something. I’ve never tried any of their items on, so I can’t vouch for the comfort of them, but I think Spanx has a great market.
Even some of the most fit women could benefit from Spanx in conditions where tight clothes are worn. I’ve fallen in love with many dresses that I did look good in, but would look even better if I had something to suck me in just a teeny bit. Spanx have become the corsets of this generation.
I doubt they are comfortable to wear every day, but for special occasions I think this is a great product. The stores will be opening in New Jersey’s Garden State Plaza (my local mall!), King of Prussia (PA), and Tyson’s Corner Center (VA). If these locations do well, which I suspect they will, I’m sure more will be popping up at a mall near you!
Lovelies, do you wear Spanx? What is your impression of them?
