Spanx is THE name of shapewear. Founder Sara Blakely came up with the idea of Spanx when she didn't have the proper undergarment that would be a blemish-free look beneath her pair of white pants. From a homemade pair of control top pantyhose with feet cut off to now a wide variety of solutions to slim your body and fit into any outfit picture perfect. The Spanx line also include leggings and tights that offer durability and a great style. That first pair of Spanx was a work of sheer genius!
