Spanx you very much

Who ever doesn’t know what Spanx are, you’re either very lucky to have an amazing figure or, you don’t know what you’re missing!

For those who are regular users like me and like to smooth out our amazing curves, I want to ask you a question. How much have you spent purchasing shape wear?

Only to find when you get home, they roll up your thigh or don’t give you the results you were after. Because lets admit it, at the start when the craze of shape wear was first introduced, I was one of those shoppers who would be too embarrassed to try them on. I would get home and realise I had purchased the wrong size or the material didn’t even smooth out a hair on my leg!

After 3 failed attempts, I found the best of the bunch. I have put together some Shape Wear brands that smooth your tummy and thighs. But ladies…if you want a flawless result, you are going to need to spend a little bit more $$. It’s an investment worth having.

No.1 SPANX ‘High Waisted Shape My Day Girl Short’ $109.95 available from David Jones, The Iconic, Myer

These are my Fav! Seamless, lots of support and control and the tummy band does not slip down. The crutch area is made of cotton, which helps ventilation.


No. 2 Nancy Ganz ‘Body Architect High Waist Shaper Short’ $104.95 available from David Jones, Myer

They have some serious holding power! They are have a slight shimmer to them, that gives it that slight luxurious feel. I do wish the crutch area was a little more breathable and depending on what you are wear, you might notice the front seams – but that’s me being picky. The range also have some beautiful designs – that make it a little more sexy.

No. 3 Ambra ‘Cinch Hi Waisted Short’ $49.95 available from

These are great for an everyday shape wear. For me, you won’t get the same support if you are on the curvy side, but they are very breathable and easy to wear.

No. 4 ‘Brendon Seam Free Waist Control Thigh Shaper’ $29.95 available from Brendon Outlets or Online

If you didn’t want to spend lots of money then this maybe for you. I do want to stress that there is a reason why they are at this price point. I recommend these for women who have a smaller frame. For women like me with an hour-glass figure, I found the band rolled down and it became very annoying. However, they were nice to wear under jeans.

So in short – If you want control, smoothness and to actually feel a dress size smaller – spend a little more money. I’ve had my Spanx for over 4 years now and swear by them.

Please read the ‘return policies’ on the sites you visit. Some are really strict with their health and hygiene and you may not be able to return them.

Just a little reminder to you ladies….
β€œThe beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.”
― Audrey Hepburn
