Real Women Swim Makeovers

To mark the launch of our 2012 swimsuit collection, brave SPANX fans suited up and put their own butts on the line to take part in the SPANX Real Women Swim Makeovers.  Spanx stylists selected bathing suits from the new collection to flatter each woman’s figure and camouflage any imperfections from bust to butt.

BEFORE: Julie's suit was droopy and drab

AFTER: Julie's SPANX tankini is flirty and fab!

Julie, a young mom looking for lower half coverage and all-over style got along swimmingly with the Long and Lean Ruffle Tankini, $128 and Skirtini, $98 stating, “The tummy control is amazing. Before having a child, I probably would not have even looked at a suit with a skirt, but this was perfect. It’s not too short or too long.” Try paring these separates if you want to disguise, tummy, hips and thighs.

Carol, a fashionista seeking a sophisticated style and an hourglass silhouette went slimming with the Lovely Lace One-Piece in Watercolor, $198 and declaring, “It gives me confidence, it supports me where I need support, and I love the feminine details.”

Tammie, a fashion blogger who wanted to show off her curves with the right support dove into the Halter Swim Dress in Twilight, $188 professing, “It makes me feel sexy, it pulls me in, and it cinches my waist. I just feel absolutely wonderful.” Try this suit if you need bust coverage and support for your girls.

Brittany, a working mom in need of a tummy-taming style that works as hard she does took the Whittle Waistline Draped One-Piece in Twilight, $188 for a test dive saying, “The SPANX swimsuit fits me in all of the right places. The ruching is my best friend; I didn’t think I could look this good so soon after having a baby.”

I ordered the Slim Cognito Shape-Slip in size 3XL. The day it came in the mail, my four year old daughter Rose and I, were so amazed at how beautiful it was packaged and then we opened it up! It was so soft, black, not sheer, very smooth and I wondered how in the heck I would fit into it!

As I tried it on, I was so totally amazed at how it just fit perfectly. It stretches yet supports in all the right places. I then put my little black dress on and looked in the mirror and for the first time in over ten years, I saw my figure! It gave me my figure back and it also gave me hope to keep exercising and eating healthy, so that I could lose my weight!

I am very happy with the Super Higher Power Panty. The panty gives great tummy control and the high waist provides a slenderizing silhouette.  The panty also has the cotton gusset so I wear them as underwear.  This product is super comfortable.  I love the pulled together feeling you have when wearing…no riding up or down.  It stays in place.  I wear every day and I am happy w/results.  I absolutely love the Super Higher Power Panty! Thanks again.”

I am wearing SPANX In-Power Line Super Higher Power I wear SPANX everyday. I had weight loss surgery and have lost 163lbs.  SPANX gives me the appearance of firm skin making me feel more confident and allowig me to be active and do cardio exercise, run and play with my kids, and dance with my husband and friends. I have lost a lot of weight improving my health, but my life would still be very limited without SPANX.  I love you SPANX for helping improve my quality of life.
