Spanks are they the upgraded girdle

Sunday, January 20, 2013

Just wanted to ask that question, because as I stated in a previous blog I yes this girl absolutely HATES shopping for clothes, but yesterday I decided to go because I need to look for clothing in the event I am granted a job interview. Well needless to say I hated every minute of it. I went with my future mother in law and as I tried on various things that were either too small, too snug in the arms or waist or just plain didn't look appealing my mom stated you need something to keep it "all in". What the heck, I wasn't offended but I don't like any thing that makes me feel confined. I come from the era, If it don't fit don't force it. Any way what is the deal with Spanks, are they comfortable or are they just an upgraded version of a girdle (which I absolutely will not wear).

    I must be the only person out there that HATES spanks!. I too come from the era, "what you see is what you get," but having said that they do have a place to play in getting a fit in your clothing that makes you feel better about what you see in the mirror. Great for those times when you want to look your best and you want your lines smooth.

    They are more comfortable than a girdle, still hold stuff in, but don't have as much hold as a girdle would.

    Thanks SWANATOPIA for explaining what spanks are, I just might give them a try. Do I really have shopping anxiety is that what it is, I never knew there was a name for my disdain for shopping.....

p.s I am so proud of what you have/are accomplishing thus far, maybe if I could get a grip on this weight loss journey then maybe I would feel better about a lot of things including shopping,,,,

    They are like spandex or leggings. They go from the top of the stomach all the way to the knees or bottom of legs depending on which you buy. I don't like to feel tight on me either but these feel really comfortable and they do hold everything in place, creating a "shape" to your body line. I prefer to wear them with dresses but they feel great under anything. They are good quality too and last. Had mine for a year so far! A little pricey but worth is to get rid of shopping anxiety.
They have tops and bottoms!
