Are Spanx Squeezing Your Organs?

team blogSpanx Shapewear …
to wear or not to wear?

By: Dr. Lauren Schofield

I would be a liar if I said I do not wear Spanx Shapewear. I love my shapewear, but only on special occasions! As I have said in practice and on my radio show, life was meant to be lived in moderation.

I was shocked to read in reports released last week that women are wearing Spanx every day! Not only that, but they are wearing them too tight, in other words, buying a smaller size than what they should. And to know surprise, our teenage girls who are growing up entirely too fast, are also wearing shapewear, really! Mother’s stop your teenage daughters’ from doing this, please.

What Spanx Shapewear can do if not worn appropriately is:

  • Compress your organs
  • Compress your bowel
  • Develop tingling, numbness and pain in your legs
  • Poor posture
  • Vaginal infections

Like everything in life, it is important to exercise moderation: Do not wear them too often and lastly, choosing the right fit is key.

Just be smart Ladies and like I said, I love my Spanx Shapewear!

Be Fit. Be Healthy. Be Happy.
