Spanx was founded by Sara Blakely in 1998 after realizing she didn't have the right undergarment to provide a smooth look under white pants and she cut the feet off her control top pantyhose! Spanx’s focus has always been on solving wardrobe woes with shapewear that includes panties and tummy control shapewear from thigh high to full bodysuits. Spanx styles smooth, shape and can make you look 5-10 pounds slimmer. Spanx are one-piece and seamless, designed to lay flat against your leg with no riding up and no dreaded "saddle bags" along with a waistband that is not binding. Spanx continues to design new products to help women feel great about themselves and their potential!
