Spanx Reviews: Say Goodbye to Lumps and Bumps!

Updated on October 31, 2013

Get Prepared to LOVE Spanx Shapewear!

Have you heard of Spanx? If not, these Spanx reviews are for you! Spanx is one of the fastest growing brands of shapewear in the world. In fact, it is safe to say that Spanx reignited the interest in shapewear, which had nearly died off until a few years ago.

Started less than 10 years ago, Spanx Shapewear is now the hit of celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Alba, Queen Latifah, Madonna and Oprah Winfrey. The reason is that Spanx Shapewear is instant liposuction. Spanx Shapewear is the fastest way to slim down the thighs and shape up the butt. Not quite magic, but the next best thing.

Spanx Shapewear was started in 1998 by Sara Blakely, when she cut the feet off of her pantyhose. She patented the idea and began marketing Spanx Shapewar to retail distributors such as Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Bloomingdales. Just two years later Oprah selected Spanx as one of her favorite things and the Spanx Shapewear brand took off. So, what is magic about pantyhose with feet cut off? You might not think very much, but that was only the beginning.

Sara took the Spanx Shapewear idea and developed it further. Soon Spanx Shapewear was developing reinforced lines such as Power Panties and Super Spanx, lines that shaped the bottom, or focused on the thighs, or covered everything from the toes to just below "the twin peaks", etc. Virtually evething that needed shaping is now shaped by Spanx Shapewear.

Celebrities began to discover Spanx Shapewear and admit that they rely on Spanx to make them look perfect. Even celebrities with nearly perfect, bodies-to-die-for figures use Spanx Shapewear to perfect the lines and curves of their figure. Spanx is not a replacement for a girdle. Spanx Shapewear is used to create the perfect look. If all sizes of celebrities from Jessica Alba and Gwyneth Paltrow to Oprah and Queen Latifah can benefit from them, just about any woman can. Sarah says her missions is to "make the world a better place, one butt at a time".

Different Types and Styles of Spanx

Spanx Reviews

Since starting with the first footless pantyhose, Sara Blakely and her team have dramatically expanded the line to include a wide variety of shapewear, from panties to pantyhose from bras to slips. So what is the difference? Here is a brief explanation of some of the terms you will see:

*Original footless provides moderate control that will definitely make you look slimmer, smooth you out and help you avoid panty lines.

*Super SPANX features more control with an added tummy control; though this product has more compression, you don't feel a thing once it's on.

*Power Panties live up to their name with a comfortable level of control that falls between the Original Footless Pantyhose and Super SPANX products.

*SPANX full length control top fishnets fit and feel the same as original footless pantyhose.

      I wouldn't wear any dress without it. I do own a few pairs and they are wonderful!

    • Mickie Goad 8 years ago

      I am wondering if you have tried them, Euro?

      I was in my sisters wedding and had to order my bridesmaid dress just two months after having my youngest. Obviously there was some guess work involved because the wedding was in another four months. To make a long story short... spanx saved the day. I had never heard of them and if my sis had not shown me them, I don't think the guests would be talking about the bride. lol

    I am not a fan of Spanx

      Spanx Slim Cognito Shaping Bodysuit

      Spanx are Built for Convenience

      Spanx can be challenging to squeeze into and get out of. So Spanx have added a high quality double cotton gusset in the crotch which opens for use 'when nature calls'. Some say this is very convenient. Others are afraid to use it. Your choice.

      To avoid the flat, uni-butt look that many shapers give your backside, Slim-Cognito offers "The Great Divide." You won't feel the subtle butt separator, but the natural perky shape won't be lost on those in your wake!

          Great information! I also love your! Spanx really work well...bumps and bulges are erased. The only difficult thing at first, for me anyway, was figuring out the correct size to buy.
