Sorry to men who are brave enough to read my blog. You may want to look away.
Here’s how you do it: In a burst of misguided vanity, you decide to order two of the Spanx, front close bras called Bra-llelujah just before your annual Christmas vacation. You (me) are fat, and said bras promise not to show back fat. You get the bras (1 nude and 1 black) the day before you leave. You try them on and they feel great. No back fat! You wear the nude one on the plane and pack the black one. When you reach into the overhead compartment to place your bag, you end up looking like this:
Beyond the ability to entertain my friends and relatives, I found the Spanx Bra-llelujah, front close bra to be a massive disappointment. And an expensive mistake. To those of you who may think I just bought the wrong size, I have a disclosure to make. I worked for nearly five years as a bra fitter. I know how to measure myself, and do so often.
In conclusion, I have this to say: Who cares if your back looks all nice and smooth, if your front has two extra boobs?! Back to the drawing board, Spanx!
