This Father’s Day, Give Spanx to Dad

Summary: When a young sales trainer/comedian cut the feet off of her dreaded pantyhose to invent underline smoothness, a product sensation began. The creation took off when Oprah put it on her favorites list. The rest is her story. Sara Blakley, that is.

Spanx, a Hollywood secret and red carpet must-have, has become a staple in everybody’s “underoo” drawer, men included. Shape wear intended originally for women, Spanx has become so popular with men they have their own line, “Man Spanx.”

Designed to firm the chest, flatten the abs, improve posture, and even support the lower back, the undershirt is quite an offer not many could resist.
