Spanx. Whether you’ve tried it or not, you’d have to have been under a rock for the last 15 years to have never heard of it. The brainchild of entrepreneur Sara Blakely (the first self-made female billionaire, FYI), the shapewear giants have gone from strength to strength in recent years. On a mission to smooth over our lumps and bumps and enhance the body confidence of women across the globe, they’ve become such an institution that even the most high profile of celebrities swear by them for red carpet events.
Hot off the press, we received the latest in Spanx innovations last week, and we’re so excited by them that they’re already available on our website for you to buy. Sleeker, altogether more effective and even cheaper than previous styles (how we don’t know?!), the Shape My Day range is about to become your new streamlining hero. Oh, and they’ve also thrown in a pair of stylish faux leather leggings for good measure! Here’s our round-up…
Shape My Day
If you want shapewear to do exactly what it says on the tin, you won’t find a better solution for your body insecurities than this brilliant new range. To make things a little easier, I thought it sensible to group the new range based on what it can offer for different problem zones.
Type: Shaping Short (shorts to waist)
Best for: Taming your tummy, thighs, hips and bottom
Using firm control panels for reliable shaping support, these shaping shorts are ideal for those of who want to streamline your tummy and lift your bottom. Giving you the option of wearing shorter hemline styles (think party dresses and the like), it’s also possible to enjoy 24/7 comfort thanks to a new and improved 360° seamless waistband and a polymer strip to ensure you never experience any dreaded faux pas! Spanx, you spoil us.
Type: Shaping cami
Best for: Tummy taming, for wearing low cut tops
If your torso and midriff are your problem zones, this cami could be the shapewear secret for you. Offering you a shortcut to a smooth upper half, the open bust design means you can also wear your own bra, ensuring you can receive the perfect amount of support. Available in five sizes and in two shades, this style also boasts flat edges for an incredibly discreet effect as well as a polymer strip to ensure it never becomes visible during wear.
Type: Shaping Bodysuit
Best for: All over smoothing control, for wearing own bra
For top to toe shaping magic, this mid thigh shaper takes advantage of a super control level to give your silhouette the kind of makeover you’ve always wanted. Targeting your tummy, hips, thighs, torso AND rear, there really is nothing better on the market for giving you back your body confidence. You might expect something so effective to compromise on comfort, but fret not ladies, for Spanx have ensured a comfortable wear thanks to seamless zones, flat edges and a convenient double gusset. Is there anything they can’t do?
Type: Shaping Shorts (shorts to bra line)
Best for: Shaping magic from your thighs to your bust
Last but not least, consider these shaping shorts the ultimate must-have. Extending from the mid-thigh until beneath the braline, this innovative shaper will remain 100% incognito thanks to its seamless appeal and sleek finish. Ensuring that washboard stomach you’ve always dreamed of is in your grasp, the super control level is always on hand to…well, shape your day!
For the fashion devotees
Proving that function and fashion aren’t polar opposites, Spanx have clearly been keeping one eye on the recent catwalks with the last of our new styles. Befitting of a rock chick style and pretty much our favourite trend for the upcoming seasons, the Spanx Faux Leather Leggings combine a wet look finish with top secret shaping magic. Making it possible to rack up the style points while trimming your problem zones, I don’t expect these to hang around for too long!
