Since Sara Blakely launched her first collection of Spanx in 2000, the brand has taken intimate apparel to a whole new level. Spanx introduced the world to shapewear, a new type of foundation garment that was designed to lift, trim and sculpt, now considered a wardrobe essential by women everywhere.

Spanx make it simple to achieve that perfect silhouette

With the right Spanx foundation garment, you can carry off any outfit. The label takes its name from spandex-based jersey fabrics that are the basis of its exclusive range of shapewear. Founder Sara Blakely once said "don't underestimate a woman who wants her butt to look good in white pants" and fashion lovers around the globe heard her. We love wearing those clever shorts, bodies or tights with white jeans, a colourful top and wedge sandals for a stylish look that works anywhere. Alternatively, opt for the all over elegance of a Spanx bodysuit or slip with a chic bodycon dress.

Choose the right Spanx for every occasion

A-list stars and celebrities make sure they're never without their Spanx for red carpet events and photo shoots. The collection includes pieces with varying spandex levels to help you achieve exactly the trim and toned look you want, whether you're in the spotlight or in the middle of a busy day. Team all-in-one bodysuits with any type of sportswear, or make Spanx part of your everyday outfit by teaming sleek tops or high-waisted shorts with office wear.
