Spanx = heaven!!!  I love them. I am 100% wearing them under my gown. ABSOLUTELY… I have been a bridesmaid 4 times and I have worn them under two of the bm dresses that were Vera Wang and super tight….They are worth every penny Wink

Meeeeeeee!!! I heart spanx! I always wear then under tight cocktail dresses and surprisingly they aren’t uncomfortable and keep you totally sucked in! They’re a bit of a pain in the butt when you have to go to the bathroom but they’re totally worth it.

I heart spanx too! I don’t think I’ll need them for my wedding dress, but I wear them all the time!

Am I the only one that hates them?  I HATE Spanx!  I tried them on at a lingerie store where I was looking for a strapless bra/bustier, but all I could think was “get me out of these things.”  I just don’t think the discomfort is worth the look.

I was super comfy in my Spanx and wear than anytime I’ll be sporting something snug. I love them! They were totally under my wedding gown. 🙂

I love spanx… I am a petitie girl  and I wear a nude one under all my little summer dresses instead of a slip or having to worry if you can see through my dress… I like the biker shorts ones… it does take a little getting use to at first because they do hold you in but i love them… Look into buying from Ross & Tj Maxx

 

Target also has a good line of products like Spanx  actually created by Sara Blakely the same creator of spanx called Assets I think… they are a little cheaper and i havent tried the bottoms but i have some of the tops i wear under my white shirts i have to wear to work (which dont flatter anyone)  and ithey are great

I like the look of Spanx, but find them hot.  And while I’m ALL about the sucking in and other tricks to look FABULOUS, I have one comment of caution:  peeing.  Sometimes it CAN be tricky.

I would have a look at the logistics of rolling down the tummy control area while in your dress.  Some spanx have a…well…”solution” for this.  I say “solution” because it isn’t the most…comfortable.  lol

I have bought some of the Target Assests tights and they work great in holding in my stomach area so I would definately suggest it if your looking for a cheaper option!

I plan on wearing spanx under my dress. I wear them with most of my dresses for events- it just keeps everything smooth and sucked in!

I’ve seen them at Nordstrom Rack. I’m going to look into this for my wedding dress, if I need it. My dress is a forgiving shape, but I’ve put on some weight since I ordered it. 🙁

I wore Spanx at my 1st son’s wedding just during the ceremony and the pictures afterward.  They were so uncomfortable and gave me a belly ache, so I ripped those suckers off in the ladies room during the reception! lol!
