I am thinking about buying a pair of spanx.. but I am unsure which to buy!
My problem area is my belly and my love handles.. I want something to smooth them out.. There are way too many options on their website. I’ve had 2 kids, so I want the heavy duty belly smoother option.. any help??

Call a couple of department stores around you and see if they have them, and then go try on different ones.
Also, consider a non-spanx brand. Stores like Belk, Dillard’s and Macy’s usually carry sections of body shapers much like spanx these days!

If you have a Nordstrom near you, I would take a trip there and try a few different kinds on to see what works for you. Or the people there are usually really knowledgable and helpful so maybe you can go in and ask what they would recommend.

I bought a pair of the waist-high Spanks recently, and was disappointed to find out that they only smoothed out my thighs, when I was looking for waist-area smoothing. Be aware that just because they are high-waisted doesn’t mean that there is support in that area!

Also, Target carries a diffusion line of Spanx called Assets.

So I went today and got some spanx. I bought the slim cognito shaping bodysuit.
I must say I have been SO happy with it. I came home and tore my room apart trying on all my old clothes that I had shoved into the back of the closet/dressers!
Now I will go ahead and say that I had a slim friend try it on (it’s a size small) and it did not make much of a difference on her at all.
However, my body is a different story. I seriously fit into pants 2 sizes smaller.. I was able to wear shirts I couldn’t wear before due to muffin top/love handles showing..
I think this is because I have had 2 kids. I am not fat, but I have a lot of extra skin in the midsection that causes the love handles/muffin top/belly. The spanx is able to fix this for me, beyond what I ever imagined it could do.
I will try to take some before/after pics tomorrow and if I am brave enough I will post them.
Anyways, I am in LOVE. Now its not that I “don’t have anything to wear” its that “I can’t decide what to wear”!!! So excited now to go anywhere!

I have the Slim Cognito and LOVE IT!! The first time I went dress shopping I didn’t have it on and dresses wouldn’t zip (by 4-5 inches). I went back with the slim cognito on and the dresses zipped! The sales girl was shocked!

I saw the other day that a Spanx boutique is opening up on RueLaLa on the 2nd. I’m not sure what the selection will be, but there might be something good in there!
