- Wedding: October 2011
I will be rocking a trumpet/fit n flare gown for my wedding. I am a bit older and not so toned these days, and just wanted to get a nice foundation for my dress. I had heard great things about spanx, so I ordered myself the Spanx In-Power Line Super Higher Power Power Panties. Theoretically, they go from mid-thigh to just under the bra line.
Well, I am 5’1″, about 130 lbs (I’m working on it, I know it’s a bit chubby for my height), and am solidly in the size “b” category. They came today, I excitedly put them on to try with my dress, and… awful. They go from my knees to *over* my breasts all the way to my shoulders. They don’t suck me in at all. I have control top panty-hose that hold me in more, by a LOT. They add a layer + heat, and offer no control in exchange.
So my question is this: petite ladies, should I just re-order in the size A? I’m wondering if the size chart is just wrong for us shorties. OR, do I give up on spanx and can someone recommend a brand they like better that will actually hold me in a bit, and not be way too long.
