Our Love/Hate Relationship With Spanx
Sometimes we need a little help to look our best underneath our clothes. Like our ancestors before us who used to lace up in corsets to keep it all in, we use the wonderful invention called Spanx to hold in our bits and bobs into the desired svelte shape.
This morning, we talked about our love/hate relationship with the constricting spandex underthings. Well, we love the way they make us look. Here’s what we had to say about our spanx:
Julie hates Spanx. She can’t stand wearing them because you’re miserable the whole time you’re wearing them. They might make you look thinner, but you feel fatter wearing them. Julie wore a fabulous red velvet dress to her niece’s debutante ball in Georgia. Of course, underneath she had to wear some Spanx. While she was in line to get a drink, a cute college boy was flirting with Julie. She was in the middle of a Mrs. Robinson moment when she felt her spanx begin to roll down from the top. She panicked, wondering if the college guy could see her getting wider by the second or if she had a visible double guy as the spanx continued rolling down over her baby bucket. At the end of the night, she tossed the offensive spanx in the trash.
Tony isn’t ashamed to admit that he has a pair of spanx for men. Steve Kemble actually suggested that he buy a spanx tank before going on TV to do a news report. He concurs that it is not a comfortable garment to wear. The worst part of wearing the “manx” was trying to take it off. He was home alone when he started pulling from the bottom. Of course, that started the rolling, and it rolled right up into his armpits. He was trapped with his arms flailing in the air. He when into immediate panic mode and ran downstairs, out the front door, and to a neighbor’s house looking for help escaping from his spanx tank terror. Neighbors probably wondered why Tony was running around looking like he was being attacked by a sausage casing.
