SPANX is an Atlanta, Georgia-based hosiery company that was established back in 2001 manufacturing pantyhose and other undergarments for women until 2010 that it started to manufacture male garments too. This company specializes in foundation garments that include undergarments and bodysuit shapewear that are designed to give the wearer a shapely and slim appearance. SPANX founder Sara Blakely was getting herself ready to attend a party back then when she realized that she didn’t have the perfect undergarment to wear that would give her a blemish-free look under her white pants. With a brilliant idea in mind, what she did was she grabbed a pair of scissors and then cut the feet off her control top pantyhose which started the SPANX revolution. The main goal of the company is to help women feel great about themselves and their potential with its wide array of slimmers, bras and panties and so far it has grabbed the attention of millions of women not just in the U.S. but also in other countries.
From its signature footless hose, SPANX has grown and increased the number of products offering a wide selection of hosiery that include reversible trouser socks and comfortable fishnets, body shapers, and clothing line called Slim-X with every item aiming to mold its wearer into a more aesthetic, sleeker silhouette without the discomfort. The official mission of this company is to invent and enhance products that promote comfort and confidence in women. SPANX has moved beyond just its first product and become a highly respected brand that is dedicated to improve the lives of women which it intends to continue doing. Inspired by the positive feedback of many women saying that SPANX changed their lives for the better, the company promises to continue providing empowerment to all women around the world. Currently, the SPANX brand already sells more than 200 products that range from slimming apparel and swimsuits to activewear, bras and men’s undershirts.
