I know there is a feminist argument to be made for eschewing Spanx and control-top hosiery of all kinds, but when I look good I feel powerful, which seems to me very very lady-positive. Which is at least not non-feminist, right? And when my stomach is pooching out I feel as weak and ineffectual as those poor Los Angeles Rams last night (and they were by far my choice to win—boo on the Patriots, and that pretty-boy Tom Brady. I only hate the Cowboys more, and apologies to those who love those teams—I still love you immeasurably. Also, deathly boring halftime show, no?). Anyhoo, I was saying the other day that I don’t wear many dresses in the winter cause it’s too cold, but I just discovered these Spanx tights and they are so plush and warm—and tummy-shaping that it’s almost a miracle. It’s also worth adding that if it’s an opaque tight you’re after, you could do far worse than these.
