I have been in five states in the past four days.  Which means I have been to 7 Goodwill stores, 2 Value Village’s, and a few thrift stores I don’t care to mention.  While shopping at Goodwill in Kentucky, I came across brand new pairs of Spanx. I don’t know about you, but I never leave home without wearing a body shaper.  I literally wear them under pants, skirts, shorts….everything!  I have to get it right, get it tight. Ha!

I know you are probably thinking I don’t need it, but I like my curves to look smooth.  Let’s be honest, a lot of women don’t wear them and it completely ruins the look of the outfit!  Do you think Beyoncé is flawless? Spanx! Kim Kardashian, yep Spanx too! Adele (singer) confirmed she wore 4 pair of Spanx to the Grammy’s.  Now that is too much for me….


I wrote this post for two reasons.  Some people think girdles or spanx is for plus size women and that isn’t true. These are for women who understand the importance of covering/concealing your assets. The second reason is because proper undergarments can be very expensive!  That is why I always suggest start with a thrift store!  Thrift stores allow you to try different brands at a price you can afford!

If you think buying body shapers from a thrift store is nasty try TJ Maxx or Ross!  I have found a few in the clearance section!  I will do a follow up post on my favorite body shapers to wear…..
