Sara Blakely’s Spanx Shapewear Tips!

Spanx founder Sara Blakely was getting ready for a party when she realised she didn’t have the right undergarment to provide a blemish-free look under white pants. Armed with scissors and sheer genius, she cut the feet off her control top tights and the Spanx revolution began! The multi-million dollar problem-solving brand has become a red carpet must-have for celebrities and a daily necessity for women and men everywhere!

Now you can transform your figure with Sara’s top Spanx Shapewear tips:

- Make sure you are in the right size. If you’re in the right fit, your shaper shouldn’t roll, ride or pinch. Check out the size charts to ensure you’re in the correct size. Sometimes women think that sizing down drastically will give them extra slimming compression, but it often sacrifices fit and comfort.
- Some women think that only one piece of shapewear will be their one-stop, fix-it-all solution, but that is not the case. Think of shapewear like shoes – you will need different styles for different outfits and occasions.
- Don’t wear a mid-thigh shaper with pants. Go with a style that doesn’t stop on the thigh and create a line, like footless pantyhose. For skirts and dresses, choose a mid-thigh silhouette.
- For sheer or clingy fabrics, go with sleek, seamless shaper like the Slimplicity or Slimmer and Shine collections versus a hosiery shaper. They will not cling or show any lines, and offer greater shaping in even the tightest knits.
