Sara Swag Bag Pool

Straw Beach Tote – This handy tote by Apolis is definitely a beach staple.  It was handcrafted by an artisan women’s co-op in Bangladesh.

Sun Hat – Your skin’s best friend.

SOLO Shades – I always have a pair of sunglasses on hand, and these hand painted SOLO frames are my new favorite. This recent Leg Up winner makes frames from recycled bamboo and uses a portion of each purchase to fund eye care for people in need – so cool.

Surf Spray – I count on Bumble & Bumble for instant beach hair.

Antioxidant Daily Protectant Sunscreen – SPF 33 – I wear Jan Marini sunscreen everyday – I love its lightweight feel!

Bronzer – Growing up, I spent hours in the sun trying to get tan- much to my skin’s dismay.  Now I count on Guerlain bronzer to give me that sun-kissed look.

Switch Flops – These flip-flops were designed by Leg Up winner, Lindsay Phillips.  They come with interchangeable snaps so you can switch up your look…brilliant!

Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment – A chapstick with SPF is a must!

Healthy Snack – An easy on-the-go snack with only two ingredients? That’s it!

Kid-Safe Sunscreen-SPF 30 –  This California Baby sunscreen is totally kid-safe.  I always have it on hand.

Spanx Bold Blouson One Piece- This Spanx suit is perfect for laying out or chasing your kids on the beach!

 With the 2014 World Cup games at hand, “futball” frenzy swept over the Spanx HQ, where employees gathered to cheer on the US team throughout the tournament.  While there’s still one game left, we’ve slimmed down the bulk of gifshashtags, and memes to present to you, our top 3 favorite moments from the 2014 World Cup.

When Goalie Tim Howard saved a record-breaking 16 attempted goals and sparked a viral sensation!

What To Wear & How To Pair: Summer Shapewear

Summer dressing often means that less is more when it comes to beating the heat, but Spanx still has your butt covered with lightweight, warm-weather options  for every occasion.  Whether it’s a date night, summer wedding, or every day, Spanx has featherweight options to keep you looking good and feeling cool.



All the Haute Without the Heat!  Summer calls for shorter hemlines, answer with the Haute Contour Shorty ($38).  Featuring a lightweight, no-show belly bandeau for all around slimming, this flirty style features minimal fabric with maximum coverage.

What To Wear & How To Pair:

date night

Dress: Milly



Work up a sweat to Motown while you twist and shout on the dance floor in your Trust Your Thinstincts ($72-$76).   This must-have shapewear style offers full coverage firming of the midriff, tummy, hips, thighs and rear with an added cotton gusset for comfort.  Slimming starts just below the bra for a streamlined look without the VPL (visible panty line). There’s a reason this is Robin Wright + Lily Allen’s favorite style!

What To Wear & How To Pair:


Dress: Philosophy



Stop “britching” about the heat! The Skinny Britches ($58) lightweight shaper features a Cross Britch Strip for X-tra slimming with super control.  The super-sheer fabric means you can stay cool whether walking around town, heading to work, or enjoying a picnic in the park.

What To Wear & How To Pair:

every day

Dress: Kate Spade


 All options are currently available at in Nude + Black colorways.

The Picture of Perfect Support

At Spanx, we think it’s time to celebrate the unconditional support. Those who lift us up—and never let us down. The firm hugs at every bump and curve…

That’s right—we’re talking about our MOMs!

Not only are our mothers our first (and arguably our most important) fashion influencers, they’re our fiercest and most unwavering supporters. Our #1 fans and go-to problem solvers. Our former (or maybe still current…) chauffeurs, chefs and seamstresses.

To celebrate all that our moms do for us, our team has gathered our favorite photos featuring our leading ladies (or our own little ones).

We hope you enjoy! Here’s to our moms! XO
