Do You Really Need to Wear That Spandex?

From Your Tango

Ladies, you’re not fooling us with those Spanx. And you shouldn’t have to.

Sometimes we’re a touch softer in certain body parts than we’d prefer. Men remedy that with Viagra and rhino horn. Women can use the -it-in method or shapewear.

Of course, it in all the time has its limits. A college friend named Daft Delores (there were two Deloreses, and this one was not terribly bright) gained 15 pounds in a semester and would still wear the same baby doll tees that were popular in the early 2000s.

    I dont mind spanx under clothes (being that are an undergarment and I used to sell them) BUT it burns my eyes to see women who wear them as pants….i.e “leggings”…..if your legs are bigger than tree trunks then those leggings, pants, spanx….need to be saved for the eyes of the people in your house, also if your legs look like dry spaghetti noodles then the spanx, pants,”leggings” need to be saved or your home as well. Keep it all under wraps. Make yourself a mystery sometimes.

    I’m happy others said it because I thought I was crazy.

    This man would not like to see it if all women abandoned shapewear. I guarantee it. There’s a reason things like Spanx and even corsets are big business.

  • Cakester

    PLEASE keep wearing them spanx…we don’t want to see you looking like a double cheeseburger!!!

    Ladies don’t listen to this idiot. Long live the Spandex.

  • Men LOVE spanx. This guy is a stone cold idiot.

    Why is a man writing an article telling women not to wear shapewear like Spanx? He clearly doesn’t know what he’s talking about.
