Truvy, from Steel Magnolias and played by Dolly Parton, said “I haven’t left the house without Lycra on these thighs since I was fourteen.”

I am in LOVE.  A heated, passionate, public displays of affection, hold me in right all night love affair with my Spanx Body Shaper.  

I was a body shaper virgin before I Spanxed for the first time.   I was preparing for a friend’s wedding and I looked more like the sausage of honor than the maid of honor.  I took myself to Nordstrom and shyly asked the sales associate to be gentle.  Would wearing a shaper hurt anything besides my ego?  Would I feel different…more like a woman? Would people be able to tell just by looking at me that I had “done it” and bought and wore a body shaper?  Like any virgin I needed a tender touch, some patience, and someone to go slow and make me feel comfortable. 
The sales associate quickly dispelled any fears and fit me with the amaze-balls  Higher Power Spanx Shaper that held it all in from below my breast bone to my mid thigh.  Without being squeezed in and uncomfortable I looked like I lost 10 pounds and felt amazing.   My muffin top had finally met it’s match! Spanx work great for us Moms too. The Spanx really hold in and smooth down the post pregnancy belly.
There are also so many Spanx shapers and options to choose from AND Spanx has also come out with a budget friendly line of shapers called Assets.  I am singing Spanx praises from the mountain tops and so are a lot of other women.  Seems like wherever I go, ladies are proudly displaying their Spanx shapers.  I was married in Spanx, I wear Spanx with jeans, and this weekend I have a high school reunion, so you know Mama went and bought herself a brand new pair. I love them.
With Spanx you are ready for the party and when you wear Spanx you feel like you are having a party in your pants.
