Back Fat Beware! Spanx Bra-llelujah is Here

Sara Blakely, Spanx Founder (and size 2 with no back fat!)

On QVC's AM Style this morning there was this new Spanx bra--more specifically, the Spanx Bra-llelujah Full Coverage Front Closure Bra--that is supposed to combat back fat. And while I'm totally down with waging a war against back fat, I have two problems with this. 1) $62 for a bra (plus s&h and taxes) is waaaaay too much, and 2) I have a general issue with buying "body shaping" garment from Sara Blakely who is probably a size 2. How can she possible understand back fat???

I haven't tried the original Spanx, but I have tried Sara Blakely Assests at Target and I didn't have any luck--the waist was too big and the thighs were practically being severed in half. Going up or down a size wouldn't help, so I just took it back.

BTW, Lindsay Lohan flashed her Spanx at the MTV Movie Awards. Hey, at least she was wearing underwear!


  1. I can't watch that little twig trying to sell shapewear. I like Rhonda Sheer on HSN. She looks like she needds to smooth and shape.

  2. I previously purchased the Bra-llelujah and was one of the most uncomfortable garments/bras I have ever worn and it really did not solve any of my back fat problems. It went back immediately. I did however recently see a new bra/shapewear garment on TampaBays 10 news called the Unbelievabra (by Shapeez). While more then I usually pay for a bra, I decided to give it a try. Ladies, I have to tell you it is an amazing product. I was very skeptical and given the price, it had better work miracles... it did, and it is so very comfortable. I practically wear it every day and have since purchase a second one. It lives up to their claims and then some. I hope to see them on HSN sometime in the future.

    The last time I tried any kind of body shaping undergarments was for my high school prom--what a disaster! Everything rolled to my midsection.

    Yeah, if you're a size 2 (which I doubt she is... looks more like a 0 to me) you can shape all that extra skin and cinch in your ribcage. But the rest of us are probably better off hanging out everywhere. Give me some cotton Granny panties!

  4. I would have to agree with the ladies that say the Spanx isn't all it's cut out to be , mine tend to roll up my thigh and the waist also rolls up , for the money this product should atleast stay in place!Its just not that comfortable either and going to bathroom , what a drag !!!
