    Has anyone used SPANKS and if so, do they work? Where do you buy them?
    I have to go to a wedding next month, tried on the dress and I figure I need something to help suck me in! If you have any other suggestions, I'm all 'eyes'! Thanks

    I was wondering the very same thing. I just can't justify the price of spanks. If anyone knows of a cheaper but effective version I'd love to hear about it. I'll be watching this one.
    ...and in that moment I swear we were infinite.

    I wore a pair of knock offs under a bridesmaid dress and everyone swore I'd lost weight. I can't remember what brand I used. I looked for footless nylons with a control top that came quite high up the body. I bought them at the bay but that was a couple of years ago now.

    I wore them for my wedding and for other special occasions since. Yes they do work. I find that they just smooth out the lumpy bumpies and lift the bottom a bit. I ordered mine online a few years ago as I couldn't get them locally and I found a great deal with a coupon code with borderfree.

    BTW - It's SPANX - I wasn't sure what you were asking about until I read your description

    Here's the link to the place where I ordered mine - Bare Necessities - I'm sure you can still find coupon codes too. I have seen them for sale other places now though (I just don't recall exactly where).

    Check the Bay, as well as there is a place on Richmond that sells them as well. Not sure of the name, it would be on the west side, shoe store close to TJ's. I've gotten a "girdle" from Winners before, they have a lot of things like that for cheap cheap cheap compared to what you would pay at the Bay etc. I paid $12.99 for something comparable to Spanx that wouldretail for $80+

    I haven't used them myself, but if you are lookign for the Spanx brand in town, I think Positively Breastfeeding sells them now in the regular as well as maternity version. I was thinking of giving Tess a call to check them out.

    They also sell them at Addition Elle if you need a little bigger size. I have both the SPANX brand and knock offs and they are both the same in working so I would go with the cheaper. I love them though.
