Girls, You Can Spanx Me Later!

You are late for that hoiday party so you grab your favorite sexy dress jeans, pour yourself into them, and bam, muffin top! The naked truth is that a muffin top is that roll of flabby gut that hangs over the waist of your too-tight jeans. Oprah calls it, "dunlap" syndrome. "That's when your stomach done lap over your jeans," she jokes. Muffin Top is not exclusively a question of weight or even fat distribution in women. Even skeleton-thin models employ this trick. Thanks to Spandex body armor, girls, you can have your cake and eat it, too. Or muffins.

You can thank Sara Blakely, an ingenious entrepreneur, who invented Spanx one night when she cut the feet out of her pantyhose to wear with white pants and open-toed shoes. Spanx-you, Sara! Spanx has a Hide-n-Sleek line and Body Shapers that smooth out every nook and cranny of your muffin top. Renee Zellweger famously sported an enormous pair of glute-squeezing briefs in the film Bridget Jones's Diary, unveiling one of women's best kept secrets - that a svelte figure wasn't always a result of diet and exercise.

Following in Sara's famous footsteps, Connie Elder took it a step further and added comfort to the equation and created Lipo in a Box. Without going under the knife, you can contour your abs and your derrière with this spandex miracle and be comfortable all day. Check out the Perkies perkies, too, Connie's breast enhancement line, and the capri length body suit. Connie might be the next Vera Wang of spandex.

So girls, don't sweat the small stuff. Pull up your big girl Spanxs and head to the party. Happy holidays!
