Spanx, or ‘magic pants’ as we like to call them, is a brand that we can get behind. It was invented by Sara Blakely one 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. Et voilà, sculpting underwear was born. Since then, Spanx has provided us with supportive bras, shapewear and leggings. Support levels range from ‘1’ to ‘3’, with either a light, firm or super firm hug. And who doesn't like a hug?
