SheFinds Guilty Pleasure: Spanx

I have a lot of guilty pleasures: Shark Week on the Discovery Channel, bad horror movies, Lifetime Movie Originals, celebrity gossip magazines, and Pop Tarts. However, my biggest fashion secret (and one I will admit to anonymously on a popular shopping website) is Spanx. God bless elastic and its power to smoosh my trouble areas into manageable proportions.

I’d prefer my peers and dates to think that I did those extra crunches and passed on the Ben & Jerry’s, but truthfully, the double-layer compression on the Hide-And-Sleek Panty is a lot stronger than my will power. Although Spanx do pose an interesting third-date conundrum, (Is it better to be lumpy or risk the exposure of super-size granny panties?) they are an everyday miracle worker for girls who can’t quite make it to that 5 AM gym session.

A few of my favorites:

Hide-and-Sleek Slip: Some dresses require slips to prevent a girl from dressing…well…like Britney Spears and her penchant for over-exposure. Why not kill two birds with one stone and slim while you stay modest?

Slim Cognito Mid-Thigh Shaper: These stretchy pseudo-biker shorts are perfect for those suck-it-in-skinny jeans. Not only does the shaper prevent muffin-top, but it shaves down the thighs for pants that show every millimeter.

Reversible Tight-End Tights: Not only do you get Spanx wonderful slimming properties, but you get two colors in one pair of tights. And the extra layer of color makes the tights extra opaque and almost as thick as leggings.
