Feeling the Spanx Magic this Holiday Season

Alright ladies – we’re in full holiday party mode. I still can’t believe Christmas is basically this weekend and we still have a few parties to head to before the year is up. If you’re anything like me, you probably already have a collection of dresses that are sure to be show stopper. But, do you have the perfect accessory to take your look to the next level? Well friends,  I am so excited to share my personal holiday-style must have. The Power Conceal-Her shapewear from SPANX. Or in one word: a lifesaver.

While I live for the Power Conceal-Her Mid-Thigh Bodysuit and Extended Length Short , my favorite piece to add to my holiday party look this season is definitely the SPANX Power Conceal-Her™ High-Waisted Mid-Thigh Short. Surprise – I’ve got curves. And while I LOVE them, I still like to have a little extra support when wearing dresses or pieces that cling or flow around my curves. What I love about the Power Conceal-Her shapewear is that it’s super lightweight (you don’t feel like you’re wearing a corset or a diaper) and it has this perfect combo of shaping + smoothing that will make any dress look like a total knockout. Get ready to conceal panty lines (or go panty free!) and get a little extra booty lift — all things I live for in shapewear.

Now, you might be thinking to yourself – Lauren, this dress isn’t tight and it doesn’t hug your curves. And obviously, you’re right. I actually wear SPANX under 99.9% of my dresses and skirts. Even if you can’t see panty lines or see any unwanted “wrinkles”, I like the comfort of having something underneath (usually). I just feel like every dress looks better with the added bonus of a smoothed-out finish. Get ready for TMI – I also sometimes struggle with a little chafing (semi muscular legs will do that to you) so I love that the Mid-Thigh short helps to combat that, too! I can twirl around at our holiday party without the fear or flashing or showing off “too much” of the coveted curves and that’s a peace of mind I can’t get enough of.

    Great post! I personally love spanks for that smooth finish and the safety net of having something underneath my dress or skirt. Plus, I really like the supported feel rather than everything loose.
