Shapewear…it’s a thing of beauty, folks! And, although there are a million brands of shapewear on the market, Spanx has managed to rise to the top and dominate the industry since inception. Ladies, if you have yet to discover this brand, you’ve been missing out.
So, what’s all the fuss about? Let us explain.
At a high level, think of shapewear as a type of modern-day girdle – only better! Spanx offers a variety of undergarments, including bodysuits, smoothing bras, shaping panties, leggings, camis and more - all designed to target and enhance various areas of the body.
Now, let us clarify something here. The point of Spanx, and shapewear in general, is not to body shame or make women feel less than. We at Faveable are huge advocates of body-positivity and want all women to feel comfortable in their own skin.
However, from the perspective of Spanx advocates, including body-positive feminists, shapewear should not be looked at as a way to hide or shame bodies, it should be looked at as a body-positive enhancement. In fact, body-positive style expert, Meredith Shaw, even referred to shapewear as a superpower. And who can say no to that?
Very few women have a "flawless" figure, regardless of size or shape, and Spanx makes it possible for all women to forget about those tiny imperfections and focus on what really matters. Nothing wrong with a little confidence boost, right?
What’s the bottom line?
If you’re in need of a tummy-sculpting, booty-perking, muffin top--eliminating product to give you that boost of confidence you’ve been looking for, time to give Spanx a try. As our number one pick we went with Spanx best-selling bodysuit, but, regardless of what you consider to be your “problem areas”, we promise our list has something for everyone.
Now, on to the list!
