Kim Kardashian and others salute Spanx
Flicking through glossy magazines and looking at pictures of toned to perfection A-listers can leave you feeling a little put out. Many celebrities have made it part of their job to put in hours at the gym in order to look a million dollars in a bikini, but we’re happy to report that there are still a fair few famous faces out there that are more than happy to use the odd cheat in order to look their best on the red carpet.
Although Kim Kardashian has recently denied wearing Spanx shapewear under a sheer Stella McCartney dress, the reality TV star has always been refreshingly open about her love for the figure enhancing underwear. Despite having an enviable figure, much like the rest of us, Kim has admitted that she’s not entirely happy with her body. Luckily, Spanx are on hand for those days when Kim isn’t feeling her best and she credits them as being the “greatest invention”. High praise indeed!
But it isn’t just the Kardashian sister that turns to Spanx in times of need. From Sienna Miller to Julia Roberts, there are a whole host of celebrities that are happy to admit that they feel that little bit more secure when they’re wearing Spanx. Actress Katherine Heigl once admitted to Oprah that she wore even them under her wedding dress. Incidentally, the talk show host is also a big fan, claiming to wear the shapewear every day.
So what is it about Spanx that makes them such a must for celebrities? Before she invented Spanx, the founder of the company was getting increasingly frustrated with not being able to confidently wear a pair of white trousers. In order to counteract the problem, she snipped away at some control top tights and a revolution was started. Celebrities and countless women around the world have often faced the same problem, and knowing that with a little help you can attend an event or party feeling comfortable and secure is absolutely priceless.
If you’re in a need of a little confidence boost, then designer boutique The Editeur stocks Spanx shapewear, as well as designer lingerie from a huge number of other brands. Whether it’s a little temporary nip and tuck you’re after from Spanx or Wolford, or a beautiful lace number from Mimi Holliday then The Editeur will undoubtedly have something that will leave you feeling like you could walk down the red carpet with pride.
