Oh Kimye! Here’s where you went wrong…

kim-k-hold-ups-2Now we don’t know about you, but when it comes to being styled, Kanye West wouldn’t be anywhere near the top of our list. Like we needed any proof that letting your husband style you was a bad idea, Kimye this week took  it to a whole new level with their recently published photo portfolio titled Kanye, Juergen and Kim. It is reported that the Yeezus singer styled his wife for the (quite frankly bonkers) outdoor shoot – where Kim wears a nude bodysuit with black hold ups and extra tall black stilettos, sprawled over what appears to be a giant heep of dirt. Right…. Now, while we aren’t expecting anyone to run to the shops to mirror her look, Kanye might have been onto something with certain elements of her look.

 

 

Starting with her black hold ups (something we very much approve of), achieve a similar look to Kim with the Oroblu Bas Chic Up 15 Denier Hold Ups. These hold ups benefit from a chic 15 denier base, reinforced toe and give you a chic look, minus the  construction machinery, open fields, and a pile of dirt!bas-chic-hold-up spanx-tank-fullslip-main

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next is the nude bodysuit. Now we don’t want you walking out of the house with just the bodysuit on – maybe someone should have told Kanye that shapewear goes under our clothes! But as well as giving you fabulous shaping control, shaping suits can look chic when layered with pencil skirts and dresses. Go for the Spanx Trust Your Thinstincts Tank Full Slip in Nude to nail the look.

Now it is time to fill in the missing pieces! Pair the bodysuit with a form fitting black pencil skirt and high heeled boots. Trade the star’s metallic gold brazier for a different accent item such as a gold clutch or necklace.

Now THAT’S where you went wrong, Kanye!

Maternity Tights: The MyTights Way!

kim-kardashianA big booty only gets bigger when a baby is on board; which soon-to-be mother of two Kim Kardashian knows all too well. Having this week announced that little North West is expecting a baby brother, the reality star has had no qualms in the past in discussing her reliance on Spanx to keep in those wobbly bits. With baby number two on the way, we can expect chic maternity looks for the months to come. If you too are expecting a little one, the perfect way to prepare for your expanding bump is with the selection of maternity hosiery at MyTights.

Supporting your baby bump, but very lightweight, these 20 denier tights are available in two classic colours and at an affordable price to boot.

Fashion Faux Pas: Kim loves Spanx!

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian

Love her or loathe her, there’s no denying that Kim Kardashian attracts more column inches than the average celebrity. This week was no different, although this time it wasn’t little North West or an outrageous outfit stealing her limelight. Spotted in New York wearing a figure hugging lace top and centre split skirt as she made her way to sign copies of her new (slightly pretentious) selfie-filled book, Selfish, Kim made no secret of how she maintains her curvy hourglass figure. And the verdict? Spanx! Peeking out of her skirt, Kim was wearing Spanx shaping shorts to smooth away her lumps and bumps. We don’t blame her; after all she is a recent mother, but it was satisfying to know that even Kim, with a bum as famous as the Kardashian star herself, isn’t free of everyday problems we face with our own body. Fashion faux pas aide, here are our favourite shaping shorts so you can have your own Kim-licious derriere!

Spanx Shape My Day Girl Short

Chic Silhouette

For just the right amount of slimming and shaping, try the Spanx Shape My Day Girl Short. These offer a high control and smooth panels that flatten your tummy and lift your bum for a 360 degree shaping support! Even better, these shaping shorts are laser cut  on the thigh which means you won’t get any nasty VPL while still being able to wear you flirty minis and cocktail dresses! If you want a little more tummy shaping magic, opt for the Spanx Shape My Day High Waisted Mid Thigh shorts instead!

A little extra bum boost

Unfortunately, not all of us are blessed with Kim’s lovely behind, but if you crave the extra booty boost, look no further than the Spanx Slimplicity Booty Booster Shorts, with optional “butt-lets” that you can insert into rear pockets to make your bum look fuller! For the post-workout bum look without even hitting the gym, try the Ambra Killer Figure Bum Lifting Shorts as well. And at only £16.00 a pop, these are practically a steal!

Spanx Slimplicity Open Bus Mid Thigh Bodysuit

Spanx Slimplicity Open Bus Mid Thigh Bodysuit

360° Magic

If all-round shaping magic is what you desire, try the Spanx Slimplicity Open Bust Mid Thigh Bodysuit! This body suit is designed with an open bust that begins shaping and slimming from just under the bust and doesn’t end until the mid-thigh. And with the signature trusty Spanx design, these are also laser cut for a seamless slimming silhouette. The ShaToBu Get Fit High Waist Mid Thigh Shaper should also be on your radar; with resistance band technology to tone your muscles and burn calories during wear… without even lifting a finger. Err, where do we sign up?!

Chic and figure-hugging – it can only be Wolford bodies!

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian

We all know and love Wolford’s large selection of hosiery, but did you know they also make the most fabulous bodies? In fact, a host of celebrities have been popping up all over sporting the styles, and it’s easy to see why. With the weather warming up, these products are perfect for creating a simple and polished look, whether layering beneath close fitting outfits or as an outfit accessory in their own right. Although these bodies don’t come cheap, we’re of the opinion that they’re worth every penny. A timeless (not to mention versatile) addition to your wardrobe, they’ll stand the test of time and are unmistakably Wolford.

Daisy Lowe

Daisy Lowe

Kim Kardashian has always been a fan of figure hugging fashion, so it came as no surprise to us to see her in the Wolford Colorado String Body. Not only comfortable but versatile too, you can dress this up with a pencil skirt and heels or dress it down with jeans and a leather jacket depending on the event. The lack of seams also ensures a wonderfully smooth silhouette, just like Kim K herself.

Another celebrity trying out the trend is supermodel Daisy Lowe, who layered a simple black body beneath an eye catching sheer lace skirt. In our eyes, you can never go wrong with an all-black ensemble, so recreating this look is a must. Luckily, we have just the thing with the Wolford Berlin Body, finishing off the look with the Wolford Velvet De Luxe 50 Tights.

Miley CyrusNot always known for her chic sartorial choices, Miley Cyrus has also been known to sport a Wolford body. Albeit on a photoshoot, the Wrecking Ball singer styled the Wolford Jamaika String Body with some patchwork denim and heels for a casual yet trendy look. Okay, so we might not wear the jeans ourselves, but the body is seriously stylish. For us, you can’t go wrong with a pair of black high waisted denim shorts and heeled boots.

 Intrigued? Check out our entire selection of Wolford bodies before you leave!

Faux Pas Alert! Kim K in See-Through Leggings

Kim Kardashian (see-through)

CRINGE!

When it comes to listing our top hosiery faux pas, see-through leggings always manage to find their way towards the top of the list. Not always known for her excellent fashion choices, this week it was Kim Kardashian who fell foul of the style no-no, wearing a particularly unforgiving pair of transparent leggings during a Paris workout. Sure, the glare of the camera flash undoubtedly made her leggings appear sheerer than they actually were, but you’d think if you were a member of the world-famous Kardashian clan, that this would enter your mind before facing the prying eyes of the press! Whether a PR stunt or not, her choice of outfit left very little to the imagination, and certainly doesn’t rank amongst her finest sartorial choices. To make sure you never commit such a heinous fashion crime, we’ve rounded up our collection of gorgeous leggings for every occasion.

Best for: Everyday wear

Anyone who’s worn leggings will know just how versatile they can be. Whether with dresses, tunics or longline tees, it pays to always have a quality pair to hand, and we’ve got just the thing with the Trasparenze Honeymoon Leggings.  Made in a matte finish and available in three classic colours, they’re also completely opaque, so there’s no chance of ‘doing a Kim.’

Best for: Patterns & Prints

Oroblu Bouquet Leggings

Oroblu Bouquet Leggings

Especially for the fashionistas, printed leggings are a must-have for the spring/summer seasons. From florals to geometrics, they’re everywhere at the moment, but our favourite pair has to be the Oroblu Bouquet Leggings. We were taken by these as soon as we spotted them arrive a few weeks back, and it’s clear to see why with their elegant floral print and generous stretch.

Best for: High Shine

Hands down one of the biggest trends at the moment, no leggings feature would be complete without high shine. They may not exactly be purse-friendly, but we’re of the opinion that sometimes it’s worth splashing the cash for something extra special, and that’s exactly what you get with the Wolford Estella Leggings. With a gorgeous leather look finish and quilted seam on the knee, wowing your friends is a given!

Spanx Super Skinny Denim Leggings

Spanx Super Skinny Denim Leggings

Best for: Extra Benefits

Nowadays, leggings can do more than just look great, and it’s possible for a simple pair of leggings to trim your figure and tone your problem zones! Who’d have thought it? We couldn’t decide on a favourite for this section, so we compromised with a tie between two brilliant styles, the first of which are the Spanx Faux Leather Leggings. Brand new to MyTights, these vampy leggings will streamline your tummy, thighs and hips, all the while giving you a rock chick look with their high shine finish. Or for the appearance of classic denim, a pair of the Spanx Super Skinny Denim Leggings are a must. Appearing like denim jeans but with the stretch of a legging, your figure will appear perfectly contoured 24/7.

Best for: Colour

Completing our fabulous five are the Trasparenze Dorella Footless Leggings. Dark colours are all well and good, but when the sun’s out, we love to experiment with jazzy shades to brighten our look. With ten colours on offer, these 70 denier leggings offer 100% coverage are perfect for updating your spring look. Our favourites are the vibrant shades of Ottanio and Bordo!

Kim Kardashian Hearts Spanx!

It?s no secret that Kim has no problems in sharing her life with anybody that wants to listen, and this fact is cemented by her ongoing reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians. In its eighth series now, Kim recently took the opportunity to show off her blossoming pregnancy curves…along with her Spanx. Showing us all that when it comes to shapewear she knows best, the tabloid regular is spotted lounging around in her shaping shorts minus any airs or graces.

Kim hearts Spanx!

Worlds away from her polished & preened red carpet style, the yummy mummy revealed her (then) bump, demonstrating that whilst comfort is key when it comes to getting dressed, it?s more than okay to crave a little control for your lower half when you?re expecting. And quite frankly, we adore her for this.

When it comes to Spanx for mums to be, celebrities can?t praise the shapewear enough. Made with both you and your bump in mind, the Mama Spanx collection is not only gloriously comfortable but it helps to add a little definition to derrieres, supporting your body and lower tummy all the while. Created using expandable fabric, your shapewear grows with you, quickly adapting to changes to deliver the best fit possible. Phew!

Mama Spanx

 

Aside from being the hardest working shapewear in town, the collection offers two very different products, maximising all wardrobe possibilities instantly. For those who can?t bear to part with the Kate Middleton bare leg look (and with a flawless skin tone, why ever would you?!), the Mama Spanx Maternity Tights are just the ticket. Made from a lightweight 20 denier, the tops of your tights are unlike anything else in your hosiery drawer. Harnessing the same shaping magic as the rest of your Spanx hoard, the sheer tights offer medium strength control, located in the boxer brief. With a special support panel under the tummy and an extra wide waistband for even more comfort, we understand just why mums have been raving about them!

If you?re after Kim?s exact look (we can only hope that you?ll wear a few more layers than the starlet did) then treat your wardrobe to a pair of Spanx Mama Power. Available in both the nude skin tone shade that Kim shows off, along with a classic black colour, the shaping shorts work to provide a touch of support for both you and your bump. With shorts for even more versatility, you?re able to wear yours under just about everything. Barely there seams and laser cut edges mean that your secret is never let out of the bag as your shapewear lies incognito underneath all outfits. We won?t tell if you don?t…

Lament the loss of your shapewear no longer ladies as it seems that Kim has firmly put Mama Spanx back on the radar! Hooray!

P.S When it comes to sizing, go with your pre-pregnancy weight as all Mama Spanx products have been designed with your changing shape in mind!

Shout it from the rooftops: We Love Spanx!

mama-spanx-nudeWe 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 UKbut 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.

Who’s Flashing Us Now?!

We love it when our beloved Hollywood starlets reveal a little too much (no, not like that!), and show us that they too need a little helping hand to look that gorgeous. We’re talking of course, about Spanx. Like a breath of fresh air, we can’t get enough of those accidental glimpses of shapewear, reminding that whilst they may earn more than we can count, they’re just like us.

The last few days brought with them several Spanx sightings, and some from those who you would never even guess! The beauty of shape wear is that essentially, it remains your special secret. Good fitting shape wear will nip & tuck you in all the right places, transforming outfits and adding a rather large dose of confidence in the process. With a pair for every shape imaginable, it’s hardly surprising that celebs all over rely on them to keep any lumps & bumps in check.

Katy Perry ‘almost always wears hers’, Gwyneth Paltrow has a drawer full of them…but who’s been wearing theirs now?

It’s no secret that Kim Kardashian loves her Spanx, even naming them her ‘best friend’ in one interview. But it seems that sisters still share, no matter her famous they are, as Khloe has been spotted flashing her shapewear at the weekend. Notorious for her on-point and super chic style, the youngest member of the Kardashian clan showed off a striking monochrome dress & gorgeous figure – complete with a pair of the Spanx In Power Line Super Power Panties. Never one to be embarrassed, Khloe hardly looked phased by the accidental reveal, which makes us love her that little bit more. A fan of the Kardashian style? Layer your favourite hosiery over your shapewear to streamline in secret.

And from a sister of an expectant mummy to a pop star ready to, well, pop, Rochelle Humes from super girl group, The Saturdays, has recently expressed her appreciation for maternity Spanx. Mama Spanx have been specially designed with you & your bump in mind, lending support to those sore backs and working to gently shape bottoms. What’s more, as Rochelle puts it, they ‘make you feel so comfortable’.  You’ll find that thanks to some very clever expandable fabric, your shape wear will grow as you do, making any Mama Spanx the perfect investment. Love being a mum-to-be but miss your favourite sheer tights? Get your hands on a pair of the Mama Spanx Maternity Tights and wear under your favourite shift dresses.

And for the man in your life? It’s been reported that Brad Pitt is no stranger to the shapewear, as he relies on his for a little extra help when it comes to maintaining those dashing good looks and physique. Working to show off all the good bits whilst transforming the not so good parts, why not get him the Spanx for Men Zoned Performance Tank? Subtle enough to pop under a work shirt or tee, the breatheasy fabric slims & trims instantly, but most importantly, in top secret. And as if Brad Pitt’s body wasn’t incentive enough, we’ve learnt that funny man & TV personality Jonathan Ross adores his Spanx too – if it’s good enough for

Brad, its good enough for everyone!

Shapewear – what we would do without it?!

If it's good enough for Nikki and Kim…

…it’s good enough for us! We all love a print, but it just so happens that we’ve found one that our favourite A-Listers adore too! Houndstooth is everywhere, from coats to bags to nails, no wardrobe is content without it.  Luckily for us and our pins,

Emilio Cavallini loves the pattern too, so they’ve made it as simple as ever to get involved in the trend.

Now, our love for the print is deep rooted, stretching back to Henry Holland and his AW12 collection. From there onwards, it seemed that the entire fashion world became smitten with all things houndstooth, and the Italian brand stepped up to bring us a bigger & bolder take on the design.

Their Houndstooth 3D Tights are walking proof that when it comes to patterned tights, bigger does mean better. These fab tights come in not one, but three different colour combinations, which gives us a convenient guilt-free excuse to collect them all…

Along with making appearances in magazine pages, the black and white colour way has also been spotted on the legs of pop diva Nikki Minaj. Whilst the green wig she styled them with may not be to everyone’s taste, we still love the way she’s teamed it with even more pattern. For the print-phobic out there, worry not! These look just as get dressed up with contrasting colours as they do pared down with a chic black shift dress &

courts combination. For even more fashion brownie points, play up the monochrome trend by introducing black and white accessories through out, for a style that Lagerfeld himself would approve of.

The celebrity following doesn’t just stop at Nikki either, as we’ve noticed our favourite Kardashian wearing the golden olive shade. Although Kim has recently admittedly that she dresses more for her beau Kanye West than she does for herself, it seems that she’s put her foot down when it comes to hosiery. By keeping to her usual tailored style, Kim used her Emilio Cavallini tights to add interest to her outfit, taking a breather from her preferred black & white colour palette. Not to be confused with a bare leg look, the colour is a deep, rich shade with hints of green to it. Ideal if you’re seeking a more demure look for your legs, team yours with warm brown and khaki tones, adding heels for a gorgeous office outfit.

 

These tights do come with a warning though ladies! Once they’re gone – they’re all gone! So secure your pair now and fast track your way to celeb style. Check out founder Laura wearing them too…
