A Tutorial on Spanx (or how to stuff your muffin top into a lycra tube)

Rebecca Gallagher

Do you wear Spanx? Are you afraid of their snugness? Do you think it’s futile and your muffin top will just spill over the elastic anyway? Well, I wear Spanx. I wear them any chance I get. I love the fortress of beige elastic that pulls my squishy pizza dough of a belly to a New York thin crust instead of a Chicago deep dish. I love the fact that they have a style that goes all the way up to my armpits so there’s no chance that my muffin top can escape.
