I think you know where this is going…
Suddenly, he gave me a really weird look. “Uh, are you wearing Spanx?” he asked with a confused expression.
I wasn’t sure how to respond, but I knew lying at that point was useless after he’d clearly felt the waistband of my Spanx Power Panties. “Uh, well yea, I am,” I said sheepishly and giggled.
He couldn’t believe it. He went on to say “women in their 20’s don’t wear Spanx” and intimated they’re for women like Oprah, Mama from “Mama’s Family” and Khloe Kardashian. It was total Spanx discrimination and I hate to say it, but I was a little embarrassed.
I made my way to the ladies room balancing on one leg pulling the skin tight Spanx over my stilleto booties one leg at a time until my thighs were body slimmer free. Then I stuffed them into the pocket of my peacoat and went back to the bar.
I think it’s important for woman all of ages and body types to know it’s perfectly okay to wear Spanx without shame. And there are some dresses so unforgiving, it doesn’t matter if a woman is a 110 lb celebrity, her stylist will have her in Spanx so she’s looking flawless on the red carpet.
