The Real Thing

As I wrote here on Monday, I bought a Spanx brand high-waisted brief online on Black Friday.

I mentioned that I have purchased a number of Spanx clones in the past, but never the real thing. Therefore, I was anxious to find out how it compared to the clones, so when the mailman delivered my order, I wasted no time stripping off my clothes to try on my Spanx.

The reason I had purchased the clones in the past was because they were less expensive than Spanx. Well, with regard to Spanx and its clones, you get what you pay for. Simply stated, the clones work, but the Spanx work better at smoothing and sculpting my body.

Comparing the construction of Spanx to the clones, there is more to the Spanx (a front bonded panel for a flatter stomach and side panels for "squeeze-free slimming and easy movement"), so I assume that is why it works better.

It also has a feature that I have not seen in any of the clones I have purchased: it is lined at the gusset with a hook-and-eye closure to allow you to relieve yourself without having to remove the Spanx (something I would dread doing in the tight confines of most ladies' room stalls).

Anyway, I like the high-waisted brief so much that I ordered their Oncore open-bust bodysuit, too.
