Bye Dave! Tina Fey flashes Spanx

Tina Fey has never been one to blend into the crowd, has she? The Mean Girls actress certainly isn’t afraid to get people talking, and that’s exactly what she did this week when appearing on The Late Show with David Letterman. Declaring her love for the popular chat show host, the actress quite literally gave him the dress off her back, unzipping her blue dress to commemorate his last ever episode in the hotseat. Revealing a hilarious bodice with ‘Bye Dave’ emblazoned across the front, her Spanx shaping suit was visible for all to see!

We love it when celebrities are open about wearing Spanx; after all, who doesn’t need a little shaping support from time to time? It’s reassuring to know that even high-profile celebrities like Fey turn to Spanx when they need a little help getting into a dress, and with the wedding season in full swing, we thought we’d round up our favourite shape to ensure you look fabulous in your new summer dresses.

Spanx Shape My Day Open Bust Mid Thigh Body

If you crave some all over shaping support à la Fey, opt for the Spanx Shape My Day Open Bust Mid Thigh Body. A new addition to the Spanx range, this super slimming bodysuit uses seamless zones for the most discreet and comfortable fit yet, banishing your wobbly bits and coming without any material at the bust, meaning you can wear your own bra. If it’s just your tummy that needs a little taming, have a look at the Spanx Higher Power – New & Slimproved. The name speaks for itself, with these strong control panties using amped up tummy panels to flatten your midriff in secrecy.

Is your derriere in need of a boost? We love the Spanx Slimplicity Booty Booster Shorts, which come with optional ‘buttlets’ to slot into your rear to give you a rear that even Kim Kardashian would envy. If your hips are your problem zone, take a look at the Spanx Shape My Day Girl Short, again utilizing seamless sections to ensure long-lasting comfort. Smoothing over your tummy and hip area, these shaping shorts also come with a 360° seamless waistband for a light as a feather feel.

Whatever your insecurity, Spanx has something to suit. Tina Fey, we salute you!

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.

Could Shapewear Be The Secret Behind Pippa’s Perfect Behind?

booster-shortMillions of people were watching the Royal Wedding three years ago when Katherine Middleton became the Duchess of Cambridge, so naturally the eyes of the world were also on Pippa Middleton and of course her behind as she aided her sister up the aisle.

It’s understandable that Pippa would want to look her best and might opt for some shaping shorts to make sure she looked fit for the occasion, or at least that’s what the French TV presenter Stephane Bern has been saying. During his chat show Mr Bern stated that it was his theory that Mademoiselle Middleton had worn some shapewear to achieve curvier assets.

The sheer absence of VPL (visible panty line) as well as a toned appearance certainly does suggest that she was wearing control wear, but which product?

Pippa could have been wearing the Spanx Slimpicity Booty Booster Shorts with their removable pads designed to give you a peachy behind. The strong control flattens tummies, hips and thighs – just the thing for a figure-hugging white silk dress. Their smooth fabric is laser-cut making them feel like a second skin. Being removable, the so-called “butt-lets” can be taken out whenever they’re not needed- leaving you with a normal pair of shaping shorts.

Want a lifted behind at a purse-friendly price? Then take a look at the Ambra Killer Figure Bum Lifting Shorts featuring clever ‘pockets’ of fabric that shape and lift bottoms for that perfect rear. Their medium strength control also smooths hips, thighs and tummies, giving you a gym bunny look in an instant.

Of course, unless Pippa confirms or denies the rumours we will never know the truth… but at least we can be safe in the knowledge that a gorgeous behind can be achieved in next to no time without a squat or cross trainer in sight!

Legally Blonde Star Gets All Spanxed Up

spanxAmanda Holden might have ditched them, but there’s no amount of yoga or dieting that could make us say goodbye to our Spanx shapewear.  It seems she’s in the minority, though, as every day we hear another celeb gushing about the miraculous properties of the slimming shapewear.  Our favourite Hollywood girl-next-door, Legally Blonde start Reese Witherspoon, was getting in on the action at the weekend when she flashed her control pants on her way to an Easter Sunday service.

Want Reese’s svelte style? Take a look at our bestselling Spanx UK shapewear styles so far this year…

1)      Spanx In Power Line Super Higher Power

Classic high waisted shorts with strong control.  These are perfect if you’re looking for clean lines under a bodycon dress, but beware – short skirts might reveal a glimpse of the shaper as you move around.

2)      Spanx Higher Power Brief

Ideal for miniskirt lovers and shorts enthusiasts, the brief design of this high waisted shaper means you eliminate any risk of flashing your Spanx (maybe Reese should have opted for these ones…)

3)      Spanx Power Mama

Yes, even mums to be can wear Spanx – and it’s perfectly safe.  The Spanx Power Mama shorts give you classic Spanx shaping around your thighs, back and bum, while the specially constructed bump section supports without squeezing, so you get a great look and baby remains in complete comfort.

4)      Spanx Ready-to-Wow Structured Leggings

The best things in life are free… and the second best are worth the investment.  Case in point: these gorgeous leggings, which are thick enough to be worn on their own as trousers, and which are packed full of Spanx shaping as well as clever design features, like the structured cut and sew design which flatters your figure to perfection.

5)      Spanx Slimplicity Open Bust Slip

For those of you that yearn for a little femininity in your shapewear, the Slimplicity Open Bust Slip is the answer.  Not only does the slip design mean they’re ideal under dresses (and make going to the bathroom a LOT easier), they have been made with a glamorous shine finish, while the open bust design means you can still wear your own lingerie underneath.

With these and tons of other styles just a few clicks away, take a look at the whole of our Spanx online collection and get Spanxed up this season!

Stars Dazzle at the Golden Globes…

spanxWidely considered as the warm up to the Oscars race, the 71st incarnation of the Golden Globes Awards were held this week, celebrating all that was good from the worlds of film and television over the last year.  With film Twelve Years a Slave and TV phenomenon Breaking Bad among the biggest winners on the night, the red carpet was filled with a sea of talent.

But all the People TV red carpet correspondent seemed to want to know was… what were the celebs wearing under their gorgeous gowns?  The answer, of course, was unanimous: Spanx!

First to be accosted was Modern Family starlet Sarah Hyland, who said: “everybody needs to wear Spanx no matter what… it just takes care of good lines for underwear issues”.  Now we know how how she manages to look so amazing all the time!  Next up was Melissa Rauch and Kunal Nayyar (Bernadette and Raj from the Big Bang theory), who both replied with a firm “Yes” when asked if they were wearing a shaping secret (another not-so-secret admirer of the Spanx for Men range, then).

Swiftly following in their footsteps was their BBT cast mate Mayim Bialik, looking very un-Amy-Farrah-Fowler-like in a sheer panelled black gown.  Her reply? “Of course… do you even have to ask?!”  And Tatiana Maslany was hot on her heels and in agreement, saying: “are you not wearing Spanx is the more apt question”.  The actress, who wore an extravagant beaded shift dress, was nominated for role in Orphan Black but lost out on the night to House of Cards actress Robin Wright.

The list of famous faces signed up to the world of Spanx shapewear seems to be endless!  With Spanx celebs the world over in their devotion, it can only be a matter of time before they’re taking centre stage on the front cover of Vogue…
