Spanx... what's the verdict?

Recommended Posts

I saw you guys talking about Spanx (sp?), does it work? Has anyone used it?

I have the spanx that look like biker shorts (waist to mid-thigh). I only wore them once but I thought they did their job without being uncomortable. I will say though that when I opened them I thought they would be too small and I ordered a size up to be safe! You just have to stretch the heck out of them to get them on.

They definitely work! I tried them on with my wedding dress and they made a HUGE difference! Unfortunately I'm not sure it's going to work because the ones i tried were the "high powered" and they go all the way up to below your chest... um my dress has an open back!

 

anyway I then ordered some "low-rise" ones but I'm not sure if they're as good - I'll have to let you knwo after my first fitting 9which won't be until late April or eaely May!).

 

I think they're defintiely worth a try on...

I have one for the tummy. It works well but you can't wear it under anything with a low rise in the front or back. Also I would like it better if it came down a little further. I always find myself tugging at it.

 

It definitely sucks you in though! wink.gif

I am hoping I don't have to wear anything under either but its a form fitting dress and I want to be as smoothe as possible. My concern is that it will be too high in the back. My dress comes to right where to top of my bra would be, which I won't be wearing.

with a form fitting dress, I would say definetly wear the spanx, I would want to look as smooth as possible too!

I have an A-line dress, so other than my top half, know one will really be able to tell whats going on under the skirt. But I may try them with my dress anyway, just to see if they help.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
