SPANX has revolutionized shapewear from a hush-hush uncomfortable subject (and undergarment) to a must-have for celebs and average women alike.
The brand has released its Power Mama shapewear designed for moms-to-be. The chest-to-thigh fit smooths women's mid-section and upper legs, while cradling growing bellies. The fabric stretches, allowing for the shapewear to continue to fit as pregnancy progresses. It comes in nude and black for $32 at www.spanx.com. There also are full-length pantyhose styles for $28.
For moms past the pregnancy stage, SPANX has a full line of shapewear to help ladies look their best for any occasion. Some popular styles are the all-around bra, shaping compression knee-length pants (great for layering with activewear), a comfy corset and swimwear.
