The creator of Spanx Sara Blakely has made it on to the Forbes rich list. Last week the 41 year old made it to billionaire status reaching the Forbes rich list from an idea that started when she was wearing some white trouser and she decided to cut the fit off some shaping tights.
Since then Spanx has gone global, more and more products are added all the time targeting every area of the body from bingo wings to that extra tyre. Not only that the celebrities are loving them too and we are loving them for it! Celebrities such as Beyonce and Sarah Jessica Parker have been seen wearing the cult shaping pants to show us they are normal like the rest of us!
So what is the future for shapewear? Well the new trends as shown by Kate Winslet on the red carpet are heading in the direction of the perfect hourglass. This trend has been made popular from the hit television series ‘Mad Men’ to get that 60s hourglass look. Many lingerie stores are already creating items that give you a nipped in waist and shapely hips as well as boosting your bust for a perfect hourglass figure.
We at Lingerie Please would love to know what your view is of Spanx? Would you wear them?
