At my recent fashion talk I had Isla from Storm in a G Cup as my guest speaker and she in conjunction with Spanx spoke to us about the importance of good foundation wear. If you don’t have the correct underwear on, your outer wear will not look good. Enter Spanx, which was started by an American lady called Sara Blakely who one evening was going out and had a fitted dress on with a few bulges sticking out that she needed to hide! She decided to cut up a pair of her old stockings to make a make shift undergarment and this is where Spanx was created (clever lady)! Spanx is worn by celebrities world wide and has recently come into our country. I was the lucky recipient of a pair of Spanx last year and I cannot tell you how often I wear them especially under semi fitted and body hugging dresses, even if it is just to create smooth lines under your dresses. Even though there are many copies of the Spanx look out there I have come to realise that you just can’t beat the real deal so now I am on the lookout for my next Spanx piece! http://www.storminagcup.co.za/, http://www.pdldistributors.co.za/, click on the link to find who stocks these wonders of creation.
Here you can see quite clearly the “before” and “after” effects around the hip area on the benefits of Spanx and this lady is on the small side which just goes to show that it doesn’t matter how skinny you are, we all still have bulges.
This is the “before” and “after” from the back.
This is my next pair.
This is the one I currently have that I wear under dresses.
