“Are you wearing Spanx?” is code for saying, “You need some help controlling your fat.” Of course then the “muffin top” becomes an issue. Oh, not to worry. Spanx now has invented a body suit. Yes, I have a love/hate relationship with Spanx.
After so long, it is possible to have a blow-out in your Spanx. This is like having a garment aneurysm where a weak spot develops and your flesh pops through. It is not sudden death but with your flesh protruding, it makes one feel like death by embarrassment. It reminds me of what happens when a can Crescent Rolls is ruptures. As much as we may try, there is no way to shove that dough (flesh) back in.
The invention of Spanx, in my opinion, is right up there with the Ipad. Maybe we should call it “eye-spanx.” Since it is much easier on the eyes if Spanx are properly worn and maintained.
As an aging beauty queen it truly is a marvelous way to recapture somewhat of your pageant weight look. My friend Dixie was told by her OBGYN that as we age, we “thicken.” That makes me feel like a pot of chicken gravy and now I am hungry. You know in the South we consider gravy a beverage which is why I am having to wear Spanx in the first place.
