Brand Story

Spanx was started in 1998 in Georgia, USA by Sara Blakely. Sara was inspired to start the shapewear company when she found that she couldn’t buy the footless, body-shaping tights she wanted to wear with a particular outfit. Spanx have gone on to build their company and ranges on this idea - creating shapewear solutions for women to wear with the most troublesome of outfits. Spanx aims to shape the world by focusing on their mission: ‘To help women feel great about themselves and their potential’.

Spanx introduce an element of fun to the world of shapewear, with bright, eye-catching packaging and names such as ‘Slimplicity’ and ‘Higher Power’. Endorsed by celebrities around the world, from Oprah Winfrey to Gwyneth Paltrow; Spanx have recently branched out into body-shaping swimwear and men’s underwear.

Sara Blakely has also become a household name in the USA, having featured on a reality TV show with Richard Branson. As first runner-up, she won $750,000 on the show which was used to set up a charitable organisation, designed to help women globally through education and entrepreneurship.

Q & As

Rated 4 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Spanx Briefs The are brilliant. I have the original ones that are like shortsbut there is a danger of them showing below your dress. Have been wanting this design for ages. Excellent service and click and collect from JL/waitrose 30 June 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Came up big Followed the chart for height/weight and they came up big nd wouldnt have held anything in! What the chart doesnt tell you is dress size and only once ordered did it tell me 'B' was a 10-12 and Im an 8-10 so needed the smaller size which I thankfully managed to get in store! 16 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by what a difference a pant makes I was very anti tight undies, until I bought the special dress, and a few lumps an bumps, was not the look I desired. Decided to try some with the longer leg, an what a difference, even had a little opening for the tinkle time, felt so glam an slender, its now an essential for tight fitting dresses, cant recommend them enough an even bestest friends have invested(our little secret of course) 15 July 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Hopeless all round Nobody to help me, and also I could not get them over my hips, took them back for a full refund. 10 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great product Brilliant but sadly I decided not to wear them as they were a bit of a struggle to get on and off !! This was purely because I didn't want to come out of the toilet cubicle looking like I'd just ran 10 k!! Maybe once I've worn them a couple of times I'll either have the knack or they will have stretched slightly! 10 June 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Comfortable, but the top band slipped down It took a bit of tugging to get on, but the briefs were comfortable and smoothed my waistline. However, after a while the top band slipped down and folds appeared around my waist, which rather spoiled the look. Would be great if it stayed in place. 20 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does what it says Great product, I purchased after trying the higher power shorts, but needed something to wear with shorter skirts so bought these. Hold you in and don't roll down, perfect after 3 babies! 29 April 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Very disappointed Feel poor value for money - they don't stay up and continually roll down. I feel there are unbranded products on high street which do the job more effectively and cheaply. 14 December 2012
