You’ve just got to love a girl who has made it her mission to create undergarments that go some way to putting us all on an even fashion playing field.
Sara Blakely is the current object of my affection – this US entrepreneur re-invented shapewear, creating slimming garments that help minimise figure flaws. Oprah loves them, so does Gwyneth Paltrow, Katherine Heigl and and Jessica Alba.
You will too, with Spanx footless tights and patterned pantyhose arriving in store in time for us to cover up our legs for winter.
Designed with matte yarns to flatter the leg, a soft, non-binding waistband, and a control panel to flatten the tummy and thighs, these tights trim centimetres and even take you down a size. Not only does Spanx offer bodyshaping tights, the new patterned styles are also very much on trend.
Prices start from $49.95 for Bodyshaping tights and leggings in black or charcoal. Patterned tights are priced from $54.95 to $59.95 and feature petal, vertical lines, “v” and chain designs in black.
SPANX Tight-End Tights are available in Australia at select David Jones stores. www.Spanx.com
