Spanx, or magic pants as we like to call them, is a brand that we can get behind. Invented by Sara Blakely on an evening in 1998 when she realised she did not have the lingerie she needed for a specific dress. She decided to cut the feet off her control top tights to give her outfit a seamless look. It was then that the idea of the sculpting and form-flattering underwear was born. Since then it has provided women with supportive bras, shapewear and leggings. The Support Levels range from 1 to 3 with either a light, firm or super firm hug. And who desn't like a hug?
