It wasn’t too long ago when Spanx founder, Sara Blakely, had a minor panic whilst getting ready for a party. We’re positive that many girls have experienced the same kind of episode, when things just don’t look as though they should…
Donned in white pants, Sara realised the smooth look she was hoping for had disappeared and she wanted it back. Not to be out done, she grabbed some scissors and cut the feet off her control top pantyhose and thus the origins of the Spanx range was laid.
Spanx UK Shapewear Range
Sara’s lingerie cutting skills, followed by her insight, led to Sara pursuing a renewed focus on solving other wardrobe woes. Since her first foray in to cutting and shaping pantyhose, Sara has also worked on bras, jeans and all other shapes and forms of pants.
Women across the globe have all paid homage to the Spanx range and will no doubt be forever grateful for Sara’s insight. The mantra of the company being: To help women feel great about themselves and their potential, is a term that has resonated across the globe. This is to reflected in the number of Spanx stores open across the US, with the availability of the range crossing to over 50 countries.
