Sweet Jesus: SPANX

Mama Spanx!

No worries here, when I am toting around my belly one day I will be sporting these totally unsexy and unflattering Spanx. Why you may ask? Because they are my damn security blanket. I have learned that I can not go with out. They hold me in and suck me in with little effort. Will I need that for my belly??…. HELL NO! I look forward to the days that I can wear maternity jeans again. But these suckers claim that they have

  • Soft yarns stretch with your growing belly
  • Provides lower back support
  • Comfortably shapes the rear and thighs
  • Body-shaping control that's comfy and flattering
  • Wear as underwear to eliminate VPL (Visible Panty Lines)
  • Perfect to wear every day under skirts and dresses

So how could I NOT get these!? I wish I would have known about them when I was pregnant before. So when I was perusing the spanx.com site the other night and found these suckers, I had an affair with them. But I am sure I will change my mind when I start those hourly bathroom trips. I can’t say that will be fun and will probably ditch them then. But they can’t hurt to try, right?

I thank the lord to my dear friend who introduced me to the slim living ways of Spanx about 2 years ago. Yes, it’s my secret that I shout to the world. I have gotten so used to them I can’t imagine not wearing them. I mean if I could wear them with my bathing suits, I WOULD! I seriously wear them EVERYDAY. Ok, not to work but you catch my drift. I just feel more secure, put  together and slim when I wear them.

I promise you, if your sick of that slight muffin top or hate sucking in, Spanx are the answer for you. Get over the fact that your wearing a spandex body suit, you’ll get over it when you look in the mirror and say… daaaaaammmn!

These are my newest pair! I was jumping up and down when I saw these! I can now wear them with shorts, shorter dresses (because nothing is more embarrassing that dancing at a wedding and getting “Low Low Low” with your nude colored biker shorts popping out. Sexy? I say not.

I think it’s about time that the people put the invention of Spanx up there with the light bulb and car! No lie!

A friend of mine just got spanx for her wedding. I will have to try them sometime.

Lauren said...

wow, never heard of them, but that sounds interesting. I wonder if the prego spanx would make you hot?

Do the mama spanx have a hole to make potty breaks easier? If so, sign me up for next time! They had me sold at lower back support.

Are they uncomfortable or hot at all? I should but a pair but feel like they would be uncomfortable.

More power to you for being able to rock the Spanx, Ashley! Even the non-thong versions just look so damn uncomfortable. I don't know if I'll ever go back...but I kinda wish I could.

Really? I had to wear these for the wedding and found them so uncomfortable! You should have seen me trying to wrangle those babies on...it was like a farmer trying to wrangle a pig. Getting them off was just as much fun when it rolled its way down and yanked all my tiny hairs on the way! I almost had to call in for re-enforcements to help me out of them. Kudos for you being able to wear them all the time. You must be a pro out it because I clearly suck.

Interesting!

I love Spanx, but I guess I think of being pregnant as the one time where I don't need it sucked in. Ok, so that's how I felt before, but then I read all the fabulous things that they do, and now I may get them when I FINALLY get to that point again.

Thanks for the heads up!

Marie W said...

hmmmm. I might get some. I have a couple things that need to be tucked in.:-)

Jill said...

haha that made me laugh, too cute! I wouldn't wanna be wearing them if having to use the restroom every 5 minutes, then I would definitely ditch them! love your post!
