Easy Pieces

Thank the fashion gods—Spanx has brought their style smarts out in plain view! New tops include the shaping power women love them for, but they're meant to be worn as clothes, not as underwear.

Slimming technology meets the pencil skirt—brilliant.

Shocked something so sexy is made by Spanx? So were first. Shapewear sizzles this season with sultry offerings like lace and sheer paneling.

Hot Mama-to-Be

We know, we know...what? Spanx founder Sara Blakley delivered her baby in the summer of 2009 and ever since, maternity wear has never been the same.

Lingerie Lift-Off

This sultry option has all the support Spanx is known for, but the bodice style and sheer back make it perfect for the bedroom.

Under-There Smarts

Control-top briefs and pantyhose have never looked this good. We love the retro, pin-up girl feel of this pair.

The Revamped Slip

It suddenly feels difficult to find a practical slip. This smart new option is light and officially a "skort", meaning it's shorts for comfort's sake, but appears to be a skirt in the front so dresses and skirts won't get stuck in between your legs while walking.

Water Ready

Want to hear a fashion insider's secret? We're obsessed with Spanx swimsuits! Splurge a bit and you'll wear this baby for seasons to come.

Shape Up Your Weekend Wear

Leggings are comfy, but not always flattering. Thank goodness for this version: the same easy fit we love, but with a high-top fit for extra slimming.


Look-At-Me high-waisted leggings, $72;



Another thing we're craving this spring: comfy yet chic flats.

This story seemed more like an ad for Spanks than a review of its products...
Personally, I like them in winter--they add control and the warmth of long underwear without the bulk. But in summer?? I once tried to wear some Spanx under a dress in Florida and was dying from the extra layer of insulation. How could anyone recommend--as I have seen on style segments on tv shows--that women wear Spanx in the summer! Please! Spanx have their time and place, but sometimes comfort wins out over controlling the pudge.

Spanx, excellent items for our ladies when we wear dresses, so good and perfect always. I bought them online everytime as I am a little shy when I buy them in the entity shops. I also buy one pair of sunglasses on when I buy my spanx, hahah, both stylish and cool for me.
