This picture and caption are too good not to use as a whimsical embroidery piece on a purse or quilt square."NOT ONLY HAVE I LOST MY SHEEP, THIS CORSET IS KILLING ME."
With the advent of Oprah and her endorsement of Spanx, corsets have made a comeback, but in a much more comfortable venue.
The owner and founder of Spanx is Sara Blakely. What a gal. She had a great idea, and produced a successful company making comfy, workable girdles. Blakely even gave back $1 million to the OprahWinfreyLeadershipAcademy in 2007 in appreciation for Oprah's bringing Spanx to public attention back 8 years ago.
Not wanting to take anything away from Sara, I found a less expensive alternative HERE which says:
Basically, you buy a pair of control-top pantyhose, cut off the legs, and you have made your own sized-to-fit corset. Granted, it would not look too attractive when undressing in front of your favorite person, but it could save some dollars.
Starting at $25 a pop, they (Spanx) are a rather pricey solution to an embarrassing problem. But with some scissors, and old pantyhose, you can achieve the Spanx effect without paying the Spanx price!
