Pop superstar Adele has confessed before to wearing not one, but two pairs of Spanx on the red carpet, and now her stylist has gone on record as saying that the star “always” wears the slimming shapewear to red carpet events.
We’re with you all the way, Adele – not that we don’t think women should be proud of their bodies, curvy or otherwise. But shapewear’s smoothing and sculpting powers mean that any lumps and bumps are disguised, giving you body confidence – plus they make you more aware of how you’re holding your body, so your posture improves and as a result you appear taller and slimmer.
It’s pretty well known that any celeb worth their salt layers Spanx under their outfit at events – we’re even seeing the rise of Spanx for Men as stars like Brian Dowling don the shapewear for guys that’s becoming increasingly popular (it’s even rumoured that even Brad Pitt wears it!). And more and more stars are coming out of the shapewear closet, admitting to fans, press and anyone who’ll listen that Spanx is their shapewear secret.

We used to think that shapewear had to remain a shameful secret that we’d take to the grave. Frankly, we thought we’d rather do pretty much anything than own up to the fact that we were getting a little helping hand from Spanx UK… but it seems we were wrong. Nowadays, any VIP or FOP (Fairly Ordinary Person) is queuing up to lavish praise on Spanx shapwear… and who are we to turn our noses up at such a trend?
Mum-to-be Kim Kardashian was snapped this week wearing a camel coloured leather dress (a brave choice on any day of the week, let alone when you’re also juggling a baby bump)… with trusty shapewear shorts peeking out from underneath. The Kardashian sister has declared her love for the brand in the past, calling them her “best friend”, and it seems she’s not about to give them up any time soon. Luckily Spanx has a range of lines to suit every need, including maternity Spanx (of which Rochelle from the Saturdays has already admitted to being a fan)… so now you know just how she’s keeping that svelte pregnancy figure!
Kim loves her leggings, so we’d be surprised if she hasn’t also tried Spanx leggings. I can personally vouch for these – I love them. They pull you in, flatten your stomach, tone your legs… pretty much everything you could ask for and more. The control around the middle even makes me sit and stand better, so you get better posture into the bargain! Plus you wear them just like normal leggings, so there’s no need to hide them away, and no possibility of your secret getting out.
