Assets are the bargain version of Spanx. Basically they are made of cheaper materials. If you plan on just wearing them for one day, the Assets will probably be fine. If you want them for multiple occasions or want a super great effect, spend the money on the Spanx. Higher quality materials really make a difference.

CarolineG is right on. If it’s for your wedding, splurge on the Spanx. Depending on the style you choose, you’ll be amazed at how much post-wedding use you can get outta those babies.

I went for the Spanx for my e-pics about five months ago and have since used them at least 10 times (twice under silk dresses as a wedding guest).  I’m really happy I made the investment- they make a difference and wash/wear really well.

I have Assets and I have worn them quite a few times. True, they get kinda pilled or picked after a while, but it hasn’t affected how well the work under clothing. Ive never worn Spanx, but I can’t imagine they could be THAT much better to be worth the higher cost… but yeah, I suppose if you have a sheer or clingy dress, you might want the very best for your wedding. My dress has boning and all and I think if I’m going to wear something under it, my Assets will be just fine.

I dunno, I’ve never actually worn true Spanx but I have an Assets one, and I don’t think it really helps that much.  My guess is since people raaaave about the Spanx is that obviously the quality is higher and it works better!
