I can’t believe I’m actually going to write about this, but I felt the need to share and maybe make you laugh for a moment. Especially after reading an article about actor Octavia Spencer on The Ellen Show, where she admits that she wears triple Spanx during award’s season. Triple?
Well, you remember that outfit post I did where I was wearing the Queen Grace dress? This is it, if you didn’t read it. Let’s just say it was experimenting time.
One of the reasons I wasn’t able to wear that dress earlier was because of the tight fit (my fault). My hubby had to literally zip me into that beautiful dress. Of course I was already wearing one pair of Spanx, but I still had that pooch we all love.
Yes, yes…I know there is a great shape wear debate. You either wear it or you don’t. I wear it proudly. And I firmly stand my ground. It won’t make me lose weight, but it will smooth me out. Anyways, I know a 100lb woman who wears Spanx! It’s not just a fat girl thing.
Back to my story…I still had the pooch. That’s when I thought, hey…why don’t I throw on another pair just to see how it looks. You know…just for sh*ts and giggles.
After a quick struggle, I had successfully pulled on another pair…aaaaand I couldn’t breathe. And don’t get me started on sitting down or eating. You should have seen me trying to get into my car. LOL! I don’t know how Octavia wears three pairs!
I called my friend and proudly admitted that I was wearing two pairs of Spanx. Her response…”You can do that?” Apparently.
At the end of the night, I had to peel myself out and finally…I could breathe. It was glorious!
Now, I’m wondering, are you a two or three pair kind of woman?
Is this even common? Am I alone? Inquiring minds want to know!
