SPANX founder Sara Blakely was getting ready for a party when she realized she didn’t have the right undergarment to provide a smooth look under white pants. Armed with scissors & sheer genius, she cut the feet off her control top pantyhose & the SPANX revolution began! We love Spanx because it continues to solve all of our wardrobe woes with its expansion into bras underwear, leggings, activewear & more.
