Spanx founder Sara Blakely was getting ready for a party when she realised she didn’t have the right undergarment to provide a blemish-free look under white pants. Armed with scissors and sheer genius, she cut the feet off her control top tights and the Spanx revolution began! The problem-solving brand has become a red carpet must-have for celebrities and a daily necessity for women and men everywhere.
Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, SPANX® is available in 41 countries and now offers more than 200 products ranging from slimming apparel and swimsuits, to bras, activewear and men’s undershirts. These body-shaping innovations have secured SPANX a place in pop-culture, with daily mentions everywhere from CNN to SNL. In addition to keeping bottoms covered, SPANX also shapes the world by focusing on their mission: to help women to feel great about themselves and their potential.
