I honestly don't know what I would do without these life-saving body shapers! I have been a die-hard fan of Spanx for about 2 years and I can't say enough good things about this hoisery line. My pre-pregnancy size is size 2, but even at that size, I wanted to improve my body shape under form fitting jeans and dresses. These are a miracle. They conceal everything from my upper waistline to my mid-thigh area.
After I delivered my baby and was sent home from the hospital, my first task was digging through my long-neglected lingerie stash looking for my Spanx. I've heard of many women (including celebrities) bouncing back to their pre-pregnancy bodies by using girdles, so I figured it wouldn't hurt to at least try. I've been wearing my Spanx now for 5 days (day & night--even to bed) since being home and I've seen a huge difference. My tummy isn't as prego-looking and I fit back into my jeans. When I have it on, I have people telling me I don't even look like I just had a baby!
I definitely recommend Spanx, even if your goal isn't to get back into your pre-pregnancy clothes. They are super affordable as well. The one I love is the "Higher Power" design and it runs for $36 at department stores and at www.spanx.com
