“Reduce the Flesh”

In case I don’t lose an inch before the wedding day…

I got me some Spanx!


The “Higher Power” power panties, to be exact. They totally give me flashbacks of the ’80s (think spandex biker shorts).


They are a lil‘ hard to get on, but once they’re on… wow, do they do wonders. Did I lose 5 pounds? No. But they totally sucked everything in and smoothed me out. No back rolls for me! This particular day I had a baby shower to attend and I wore them ALL day, just to see how they held up. I was taking lots of photos, running all over the room and kneeling a lot. I think I had to tug them up maybe once, but nothing major; they weren’t rolling down or anything. Considering I was doing a lot of kneeling then standing, kneeling then standing, I think they did great.

You guys better love me for posting this photo. LOL. Just to prove that it really does suck fat and skin in, I had Mr. Sushi take a photo of my Spanx semi-rolled down (and pushing all my fat out)…

Wishin‘ I could wear them under a swimsuit!

Are you sportin‘ the pretty undies on your wedding day or going granny panties and lookin‘ thin?!


Mrs. Sushi

Wedding Date:
March 2009

    @ Miss Sushi: You are so brave for posting that, thanks! I only wore mine once and didn’t try the pee hole, I was scared of getting them wet or something, lol…wasn’t sure how ti worked.
    @ Andrea: You aren’t the only one, I get those stomachaches also, so I haven’t wore mine again.

    Yay for posting completely unflattering photos of yourself online. You’re obviously slender, but you are right, that is what Spanx do. I remember reading once about a girl who wouldn’t sleep with her boyfriend because she always wore spanx and she was afraid to let him see her naked in them. they really aren’t a pretty sight :)

    You can get the Spanx at Nordstrom’s.

    you can also get SPANX at the Sack’s 5th Ave. Outlet, Off Sacks. I ordered mine through the website and then saw them at the outlet about a week later for half what I paid. The selection was not as great as http://www.spanx.com but they had a decent selection and I found my size in higher power.
    I’ve had the tummy ache effect with other things but not with Spanx, I wore mine twice so far under a dress to attend a wedding and for my epics. I wore underwear under mine because the pee hole under a dress left me feeling a bit too exposed.

    I swear by my spanx, I wear them daily, I now have about 8 pair :o . Some of my friends hate them, but I don’t find them uncomfortable at all, once you get used to them, they just feel like underwear. The bra is also AMAZING, I love mine and so does the tatas!

    @Miss Sushi: okay this whole “pee hole” thing kind of scares me… but I’m also intrigued. I may have to try these bad boys.

    OMG, hahaha i love you for posting that picture!

    i am thinking about getting some for our epics, but i’m cheap so i was gonna buy assets @ target (same company, i think?). i’ll hit up my local off the 5th instead now to see if i can find some!

    Miss Sushi you rock for posting those pictures. They sell Spanx at Nordstrom’s and Nordstrom’s Rack. They are awesome. I wish they had one for back fat!

    You are seriously not even the tiniest bit over weight or anything!

    Thanks for sharing though. :)

    @Andrea: I get that too with control-top pantyhose… one of the reasons I’ve never tried Spanx. They do sound like they’re worth checking out, though, despite this rather frightening-sounding pee hole everyone’s talking about!
