I've never even heard of Spanx before. =\ I need to get out of the house more often.
But I HAVE heard of corsets, which I've just recently studied, and it seems like spanx is similar. The corset was worn under Victorian woman's clothes, all the way to the civil war, and was tightened to the point that is crushed organs or jumbled them together. More then 8/10 woman had serious health problems because of it, and 1/20 of them had a chance of dying after extended use.

I only wear spanks when my shorts are too short or I'm on my period. When I'm on my period, it helps ensure no leaking, especially at school. I have a pair that is a little big, so it's not super tight. Also, I buy boy short underwear and wear it like spanks, just not soo tight. The thing is, it's not for my shape, it's for comfort of not flashing or leaking. To avoid problems like this, just be smart about it. Hope this can help someone!

I wear spanx everyday, but less for the body slimming purposes than for the fact that it makes me feel comfortable. I like shorts and skirts and I wear shorts for sport practices all the time. I like how the spanx cover and don't show anything if I cross my legs or stretch.

Weird thing is, a girl was trying to promote this today in gym. She said it makes you feel better. I said I don't have any and don't plan on using it anytime soon. Phew. I'm so glad I wasn't motivated to use it.

It sounds like a horrible trend. It sounds like it hurts!!!

I think everyone should love who they are! I know that it may be hard for some people but the least that you can do is try. I think having an unhealthy image of yourself is not, healthy! If you don't agree with my opinion I'm sorry

ouch. when girls turn to things like this, i always think, is it worth it to look like that on the outside, if it is killing everything inside?
