The One Where I Show You Pictures of My Spanx {true story}

Oh YES I did.
And oh YES I am blogging about it.

I finally broke down,
and I jumped onto the Spanx bandwagon today.

{purchased at Costco}

Seriously people,
these bad boys have changed my life,
and I just bought them a few hours ago!

Despite the fact that I nearly dislocated my shoulder
to pull them over my head,
once I had my new Spanx on,
a miracle occurred.

My "pooch" {as I affectionately refer to it}
disappeared.
As in gone, nada, not there!
I even had a smidgen of extra room in my jeans,
rather than the usual "hangover".

And those love handles, poof!
I know, totally worth the dislocated shoulder.



I am pretty sure my waist loses about 3 inches when I wear these!

All I can say,
don't knock it till you try it.

That. Is. All.

I won't knock it and I will try it.
I totally had maternity spanx because my graduation dress was white and prego thighs need spanx, especially in a white dress.

LOVE the "weight loss" too!!!

So glad I am going to Costco this weekend.

Ha, I bought a pair of spanx when I was 7 months pregnant and had to go to a wedding. Nothing I owned looked good because I was way huge, more than normal I mean. I had a black jersey material dress and I didn't want and lines showing. So I shoved me and my very pregnant belly into a pair of spanx. Man when the night was over and I took them off I felt like I could breath again. And probably, so did my baby haha.

i just love your blog...you are too cute

I had to laugh when I saw the cute little "S" sticker on your packages...I never realized skinny minnie girls wore those too :)

Say what?!? No more love handles? Buh-bye pooch?? I am so on this!!

 
At February 15, 2011 at 3:59 AM , Blogger Mommyblogger said...

I've been thinking of purchasing a pair for sometime now now but wasn't sure if they were worth the money. Apparently they are! Thanks for the review :)

 
At February 15, 2011 at 4:22 AM , Blogger Scribble Scrabble said...

I heart Spanx, well worth the money.

 
At February 15, 2011 at 4:32 AM , Blogger Ashley said...

I've been considering the purchase! Might have to do it now!

 
At February 15, 2011 at 4:47 AM , Blogger Jennifer @lifecraftsandwhatever said...

Thanks for the post! I've been looking at these online, but didn't know what size to get. I don't want it too tight, but tight enough to do it's job. :) I'm 5'4, 120 lbs. Can I ask your height and weight, if that's not too personal?

 
At February 15, 2011 at 4:47 AM , Blogger Melissa said...

haha, I am so with you! I bought the kind of spanx that have undies and you pull them up to just under your bra. They hold in both my pooches, upper and lower (courtesy of my monkey, and some weight gain.) It just smooths everything out, and also makes you sit up straighter. I have to do a funny little danced to get into them, and it is somewhat tiring to get into them, but the result is worth it!
Welcome to the club!

I HEART my Spanx! They are a MUST in any girls wadrobe! And they should TOTALLY sponsor LMM! :)

Happy Tuesday!

OMG! They have Spanx at your Costco? I've never seen them at the one I go to. But you can bet I'll be there today checking to see. I love Spanx!!!

Yup. I jumped the bandwagon too. Can you relate to my story? AGGHH! lol

 
At February 15, 2011 at 5:40 AM , Blogger stephanie said...

When my now toddler was born I wore them religiously while post-partum! They really, really work.

 
At February 15, 2011 at 5:49 AM , Blogger Danielle said...

I have put them inmy shopping cart a number of times at Target and at the last minute left them behind - I may need to make the purchase!

Wow! I am totally running to Costco today once the kids are at school!!!!!

Hi!

I just started following your blog and you are so funny! This post about spanx just cracks me up! I've heard Spanx are a celebrities best friend. :)

 
At February 15, 2011 at 6:15 AM , Blogger Jamie~ said...

After having baby #5 in a few days, I wonder if Costco is stocked up with enough Spanx for me. These will be a must have. Seriously. A body after five babies is not a pretty thing. Believe me.

 
At February 15, 2011 at 6:22 AM , Blogger Marcie Chavez said...

I'm running out to get some immediately!

 
At February 15, 2011 at 6:32 AM , Blogger Mandy @ Sugar Bee Craft Edition said...

fab post! but wondering - - do you have to strip down for bathroom breaks? how does that work?... just don't go??

 
At February 15, 2011 at 6:39 AM , Anonymous Rebecca@This Present Life said...

I could totally stand to lose my pooch! But do you think they are for "everyday wear" or more like just on a special occasion or when you have an outfit that highlights the pooch? Just wondering how practical they are for everyday, SAHM stuff!

 
At February 15, 2011 at 6:51 AM , Blogger Kelly said...

I have the Target brand of spanx that I wear when I have on a tighter skirt. It's amazing! Though I do feel a great release when it comes off. But the feeling of having no lines and no flub is fantastic!

 
At February 15, 2011 at 7:00 AM , Blogger Suzi Q said...

I might just have to try these! More for when I am wearing tights to church and you see my love handles being suffocated.

 
At February 15, 2011 at 7:02 AM , Blogger Jessica said...

LOL you crack me up! I totally want some....my friend tried them and loved them too!

PS the Spanx is not a LMM sponsor comment made me lol!

I am so getting this....goodbye pooch!

I have debated and debated about get spanx...guess I know where I will be at lunch.;) I have that same horrible pooch! ugh.

I told you about the spanx! Wore them will preggers too! They are miracle workers! I will wear clothes that I would never dare to wear b/c of Spanx!

I am having Baby Fashion Week on my blog! Please check it out. Thanks!

 
At February 15, 2011 at 7:26 AM , Blogger Kristi Hoskins Gifts said...

I will be getting these this week! I am so glad someone posted a real critique of them. NEED THEM!! Ha! Love your blog!

 
At February 15, 2011 at 7:36 AM , Blogger steelebjm said...

I've been wanting some. FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE I NEED TO GO TO COSTCO.

 
At February 15, 2011 at 7:57 AM , Blogger Life with the Websters! said...

I need these, like NOW! Were they a lot cheaper at Costco? I've only ever looked at them at Dillards, but have heard that they are a lot cheaper other places...

 
At February 15, 2011 at 8:03 AM , Blogger Chrissy @ Boerman Ramblings said...

I wear my spanx daily! Love them!

You blogged about SPANX?! That is stinking awesome. I'm running to Costco to get some! ;)

 
At February 15, 2011 at 8:09 AM , Blogger april said...

I wear spanx to church every sunday, because they make things look better with dresses- I also wear them every time I wear leggings!

A side- you're so awesome for admitting to wearing them- it's cool to know that even teeny girls like you feel like they need some help sometimes!

 
At February 15, 2011 at 8:10 AM , Blogger Whitney said...

Hahaha this is absolutely hilarious!!!

 
At February 15, 2011 at 8:51 AM , Blogger Ellen said...

ooh I want some for the post baby jiggle I'll have in 7 weeks! I wish they had invisible spanx for the beach... that would be awesome!

 
At February 15, 2011 at 9:03 AM , Blogger Mindie Hilton said...

funny stuff, I actually have a cosco trip planned for this weekend, will have to look for them. I have some of the cheeper nock offs, they work nice under dresses to avoid panty lines and give a sleek look (even after 2 kids) not always easy.

 
At February 15, 2011 at 9:23 AM , Blogger Stephanie {Luxe Boulevard} said...

I love Spanx! I had a wedding not long after my second pregnancy, and they were a godsend for me to be in my bridesmaid dress. They work for any body type. I especially love that they come footless, or in shorts, full body, anything. So worth the prices. Glad to see someone else enjoys them the way I do.

I will have to check my Costco a little closer next time. BTW-- have you MUST try the spanx leggings!!! AWESOME!!! and yes...you might still slightly dislocate a body part getting in and out of those but yeah, so totally worth it!!

 
At February 15, 2011 at 10:00 AM , Blogger Marianne said...

Spanx are the best invention ever! I however prefer their tights over the nylons - they last 10x longer. I run their nylons in one wearing and for the price that is painful!

They even make bathing suits at www.spanx.com but the prices are pretty painful

 
At February 15, 2011 at 10:57 AM , Blogger Ranae Broadhead said...

so one question.....ive tried alot of different brands (not spanx though) and all of them either ride up or hurt my shoulders.... are spanx like that?

I am so glad you blogged about these, I've been DYING to know if they work. I'm totally picking this up today!!

 
At February 15, 2011 at 11:51 AM , Blogger Brittany Lynn said...

I've got me some luv-muffin handles...I've been able to hide them with Suddenly Slim undershirts from Target. They are only about $15 I believe. Problem? They get stretched out kind of easy so I find myself spending $$ stocking up every few months. I have been debating breaking down and buying some Spanx but on their website they are soo expensive! I suppose Costco would be cheaper. I'll have to swipe my momma's Costco card and buy me some this weekend. (I could just work out more and lose the lovehandles but that would make life way too easy.) I am glad that you shared this with us. It's nice to know that even someone as thin and gorgeous as you isn't afraid to talk about the pooch problem!

spanx are fabu, but dang, I have a workout just putting them on!

 
At February 15, 2011 at 12:42 PM , Blogger Dharma said...

personally I have not had my ass end or most of my nekidness without spandex on it since I was 14....but then as they say in Steel Magnolias "I was raised right." :) keep up the giggles Momma

 
At February 15, 2011 at 12:49 PM , Blogger Heidi @ Honeybear Lane said...

Love it! Except that if I wear them too much then I forget that yes I do need to still TRY and lose those last 10 pounds of baby weight! And maybe do some crunches. I would love to have a sans-pooch body WITHOUT spanx someday!!

 
At February 15, 2011 at 12:58 PM , Blogger Natasha said...

I am going to get some. That is awesome!

 
At February 15, 2011 at 2:36 PM , Blogger Jessica & Tracie said...

I am going to check out costco, like tomorrow!haha

BUT you can also get that at Last Chance (where stuff goes after Nordstrom Rack) for super cheap like $15 cheap! I have like 4 pairs but I may need 7 because I'm kind of addicted to them!

Oh, this may be too much information but the ones with "easy access" (ie a slit in the vagaga area) are even better! This all just means less chance of dislocating your shoulder throughout the day when you have to potty!

I'm so happy that you are so real Ashley Love it!

Love and Hugs, Jessica

I freaking love Spanx! Especially if you are wanting to sport that hot cocktail dress on a date night. Definitely sucks stuff in that needs it!

 
At February 15, 2011 at 4:13 PM , Blogger Maren said...

I have been considering getting spanx as well! But have been nervous... I don't know how I would do being sucked in skin tight.. but heck if it reduces 3 inches off the waist, it's well worth it!
How much were they if you don't mind me asking?

 
At February 15, 2011 at 4:24 PM , Blogger Celeste said...

Amazing, aren't they!? I am addicted to Spanx, ever since having my twins. I'm pretty tiny, but have some serious tummy damage from carrying two 7 pound babies (*coughtimeforatummytuckcough*), but you would never know it when I wear these. LOVE them! ♥ Best. thing. ever.

 
At February 15, 2011 at 8:11 PM , Blogger Jenn said...

Gotta try these. The babies are taking their toll on my figure. Thanks for sharing!

 
At February 15, 2011 at 8:21 PM , Blogger Jocelyn Lord said...

Yes, I love my spanx too! They make my waist look great in a pair of jeans. At present I am 8.5 months pregnant and I am loving my pregnancy spanx.

 
At February 15, 2011 at 8:29 PM , Blogger Jess said...

I wore Spanx today too!! I was wearing a dress and I didn't want my gut to steal the show! hehe!
LOVE THEM! How awesome are you for blogging about it!!!
Thx!

I love Spanx but do not love how much they cost here. When they are on sale the price is $40.00 so imagine the regular price. I have never purchased the kind you show there, just the pantyhose. They work great but I only get them for big events and then I have fake nails and have to make sure I don't drink much so as not to tear them pulling them back up. Otherwise....I love them. Think I will go and buy a pair this weekend.

 
At February 15, 2011 at 9:30 PM , Blogger Samurai Mom said...

All right, I think I might need to try them, I have this dress that just doesn't quite fit over the baby belly remains.
I am a little disgusted that you only needed a size S I am sure I will need size T for Titanic.

 
At February 16, 2011 at 7:56 AM , Blogger Becky said...

This totally made me laugh. This could possibly be a new bff for this 'over 40', mother of two, grandma!! Glad you didn't want us to do the self pictures link-up for this topic! :)

I'm a total spanx fan!! I didn't know you could get 'em at Costco. Sweet!

 
At February 16, 2011 at 10:20 AM , Blogger Erin said...

I am so with you on the Spanx! Truly one of the most amazing inventions of the modern age...and I am thrilled they are available at Costco now!!

 
At February 16, 2011 at 12:31 PM , Blogger Amanda said...

I have a couple pairs, but those ones look awesome! I'm definitely going to have to see if my Costco has them. I can't believe you just discovered them! After having my 2nd baby, they are like my second skin now! hehe

Oh my gosh! Seriously you are the cutest thing ever! I LOVE to read your posts! Have a great day..I'm glad you love your new spanx!

I really need to get some of these. I didn't realize that they had them at Costco.

Okay, now I think I need to go buy some!

 
At February 26, 2011 at 6:46 PM , Blogger Maren said...

So...
I am SERIOUSLY considering getting these.. however...
Can you breathe in them once you put them on?!
THat is the question I am dying to have an answer too...

 
At March 26, 2011 at 2:55 AM , Blogger LilBuckarooDesigns said...

I SO need these!! I have thought about trying SPANX so many different times and I think it's the price tag that has stopped me before, but NO MORE!! This post convinced me it is time to break down!! Thanks for keeping it real and helping all us sista's out, lol!!
