Anyone use SPANX?
Posted 19 July 2008 - 03:43 PM
Some Spanx have a line down the middle that in very sheer fabrics (like certain wedding dresses) you'll be able to see and other more expensive pairs are totally seemless...just keep an eye out for what you're buying and what you need. Also, I find I am true to size based on the charts so go figure?!

i will definitely wear them during ceremony & pictures, but then i'm letting it all hang out at the reception! haha
the assets need to be bought at either the correct size according to the package or one size smaller (depending how uncomfortable you are willing to be), but the spanx i have bought one size up because the size according to the package for me is always too tight and feels like its cutting off my circulation. i am 5'2" and 138 pounds (so not a skinny minnie) but i have never ever had a problem with either assets or spanx rolling up on me at all.

and FYI, yes both assets and spanx were designed by sarah blakely. she was a sorority sister of mine (but she was at a different chapter than me) which is why i know so much about her - our alumni newletter has featured her several times

I ordered mine off of HSN of all places..the woman who took my order took my weight, height, etc and figured out what size I needed. It probably helped that someone told me what size to get, she was right on.

i am not wearing them for my wedding b/c i can't stand the feeling of pantyhose or restrictive undies and i want to be super comfy so i just made sure to buy a dress that looked good without any undergarments!
