If you’re in the market for bras and body shapers, then definitely check out what SPANX by Sara Blakely has in store this fall.
SPANX Bra-llelujah! Demi Push-Up (shown at left)
The sweetheart neckline provides extra lift, ideal for lower-cut tops and dresses. Soft cups and front closure give an invisible look under anything you wear. The hosiery back and soft straps eliminate back fat and visible bra lines by conforming to the body. Available 10/09.
SPANX Undie-tectable Panty
A flat waistband and edges keeps this panty completely invisible. Comfortable to wear every day, the specially designed center division at back lifts and separates your bum. Available 10/09.
SPANX Slim Cognito Shape-Suit (shown at left)
This all-in one super shaper slims both the top and bottom of your body. The zoned compression targets tummy, hips and thighs. Available 09/09.
SPANX Higher Power Brief
Smooths your midriff, giving you the option to wear shorter hemlines, without your shapewear peeking out. Flat seams give you a flawless look while the soft invisible hemline keeps you wedgie-free. Available 11/09.
SPANX Sheer Fashion
Patterned sheer hosiery is a must-have for fall, available in diamond, back seam & swiss dot patterns. Black & In the Buff colors are now available online and in-store. I absolutely love lurex, so I can’t wait for these sheers to be available in Silver & Gold as of 11/09.
SPANX Tight-End Tights (shown at left)
I recently had an opportunity to try Spanx for the first time, including a pair of these tights in Oceana, similar to a cobalt blue. Take your pick from 16 bright fashion colors and new textured patterns, including Trinket, Houdstooth and Corset. New open weave patterns include Birdseue & Chain Stripe (shown at left). Tights are definitely in for fall, allowing a perfect opportunity to make a fashion statement with color or texture, while keeping you warm. Now available online and in-store.
I also tried SPANX Power Panties, which fit amazing under dresses (especially silk ones!). These panties show no lines, and since there are no leg bands they appear invisible underneath dresses. The soft waistband makes this comfortable to wear all day, without that tight, control top feel.
The smallest size SPANX carries for panties is S, and size A for tights and pantyhose. This size is the perfect fit for petite people. As far as these tights and pantyhose go, you don't have to worry about excess legwear to keep pulling up.
