Leave Her Alone ! SPANX Founder Sara Blakely defends Kim Kardashian
May 3rd, 2013
SPANX Founder Sara Blakely has come out to support Kim Kardashian during her highly public and endlessly criticized pregnancy.
Blakely states “As a woman who went through that, you’re already feeling like something foreign took over your body. And to have everybody commenting on it, that’s tough. Let her wear what she wants. She’s so beautiful — with a face like that, who cares what your body’s doing?”
SPANX has released the perfect hosiery that gives comfort and confidence to Expectant Mums! With extra tummy support and a soft waistband, Mama SPANX hosiery grows with you during your pregnancy. The full-length version has an ultra-sheer look, but with day-sheer strength and an invisible reinforced toe. Sara Blakely says “The only thing Mama SPANX doesn’t provide is a flat tummy!”
Available in four sizes in Nude and Black (RRP $59.95) the Mama SPANX Pantyhose is stocked in selected Myer stores.
