Shapewear: Friend Or Foe? You Be The Judge

If you haven’t had a chance to check out Rachel Dodes’ hilarious report on the  state of shapewear in today’s Wall Street Journal, we highly recommend you take a look.

Dodes recounts the evolution of this “modern girdle,” and relates some hysterical shapewear horror stories – one involves a 31-year old woman trying (and failing) to maneuver a trip to the bathroom in a pair of “crotchless” Spanx. Dodes doesn’t quite have it out for the brand as much as Gawker, where they insist shapewear is “pure evil,” but the war on Spanx has certainly begun.

They may be uncomfortable, but when crazy designers like Karl Lagerfeld are saying no one wants to look at heavy women, and Christian Louboutin is accusing Barbie of having cankles, where else can we turn but to a trusty tummy tucker?

If you’re a loyal follower (no matter what WSJ says) you’ll love these Spanx high-waisted power panties that flatten the tummy and shape the thighs. For an option that doesn’t look or feel like shapewear, try a lace trimmed v-neck from Jockey’s No Panty Line Promise collection.
