Hilaria Baldwin & Fearne Cotton

Hilaria Baldwin & Fearne Cotton

Being pregnant isn’t always much fun. As well as the aches, the pains and sleepless nights, it also means you may no longer be able to fit into your favourite hosiery. But, as a number of expecting celebs have been showing us recently, being pregnant doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on style. With MyTights dedicated to sourcing hosiery to suit every size and shape (bumps included), we have a fabulous selection of maternity hosiery for you to choose from. Showing us how it’s done, Radio 1 presenter, Fearne Cotton, and Alec Baldwin’s wife, Hilaria have both been spotted in maternity opaques in the past week. Gracefully covering her baby bump, Fearne was wearing a long plaid frock paired and sensible flats flats, whilst Hilaria was spotted with her husband and daughter wearing a black coat, black leggings, and boots – finished off with a bright scarf for a pop of colour. It’s obvious that these two ladies are blossoming beautifully – not just in their pregnancy but with their style choices to boot.

Trasparenze Perdue 70D Maternity Tights

Trasparenze Perdue 70D Maternity Tights

MyTights knows that finding maternity clothes that don’t make you look frumpy is difficult, but the Trasparenze Perdue 70D Maternity Tights buck the trend. At 70 denier, these opaque tights are perfect to wear if you’re carrying across the colder months. With the current unpredictable weather, these tights are a go-to pair to wear to work or simply for just a stroll around town.

Even better, the reinforced toe and heel means that these will last you your entire maternity period…and maybe your next! Trasparenze 20D Maternity TightsSince the warmer summer months are looming (fingers crossed), why not stock up on a few sheer maternity tights as well? At only £11.00, the Trasparenze 20D Maternity Tights are a steal. Like the 70D style, these are designed to accommodate your growing tummy and support your bump without harming your little sprog. These are also made with a reinforced heel and toe to add extra durability so you’ll never have to worry laddered tights because let’s face it, you have enough on your plate already!

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?!

Robert Pattinson: A Spanx Fan?

With Robert Pattinson’s first foray into the outside world since the break up, we bet tensions were running high.  What would he say?  Well, he didn’t say anything about his romantic status, but he did seem to allude to a love of shapewear, saying to host Jon Stewart (about his ice cream): “I’m trying to avoid eating this because I’m gonna split my Spanx”.

Now, we’re pretty sure Rob was joking – but if he wasn’t, he definitely wouldn’t be alone.  Not only did we see Kristen Stewart in shapewear on a show not too long back, Spanx now do all kinds of shapewear for everyone and every occasion.   Here are three situations we bet you didn’t know there was a Spanx solution for…

1)      Men

Well, with Robert Pattinson as a role model, why wouldn’t you?  All jokes aside, Spanx do a great Spanx for Men range that every guy should

try out.  And the best bit is, there really isn’t any stigma attached to wearing shapewear these days – everyone’s at it.  But the designs are also really discreet, so noone will know – unless you choose to tell them.

2)      Baby Bumps

Yummy mummies everywhere, don’t despair – there’s a Spanx for you too!  Maternity Spanx is the ideal way to get a trim figure whilst looking after your bump.  The Spanx Power Mama has an extra stretchy material that goes over your bump but provides shaping control around your bottom and thighs, as well as giving support for your lower back.

3)      Hot Weather

The mere thought of hot temperatures and crowded tubes is enough to put us off shapewear, but once again Super Spanx have come to the rescue with the Spanx Slimplicityrange, made with ultra lightweight fabric meaning not only will they keep you cool and comfortable, but also won’t show up under your slinky summer dresses!  We especially love the Lingerie Strap Slip, which is so elegant we wish we could wear it as outerwear!
