To Spanx or Not to Spanx

THAT is the question.
 
So tell me ladies, are Spanx really worth it?
 
I wear A LOT of dresses and unfortunately, a lot of dresses nowadays are empire waisted.
 
Do the Spanx actually work-- and if so, what kind do you recommend?
 
I tried other random control top panties and shapewear (usually from Marshalls and/or some random brand), but I haven't found any that actually do the trick.
 
Are Spanx worth the extra cash and are they all that they're cracked up to be, or are the comparable to what I could find at Marshalls?

I can't live without them:) Honestly though, I think mine are like Hanes or something-they go from knees to right under my boobs (but I'm really short too). They work like a charm...even at my smallest I wore them because they smooth everything out!!!

I have a pair of the Target brand Spanx and I do like them... but they tend to cling to dresses and such. I've heard that the Spanx are silky so they don't cling at all... I vote that they're worth a try.

I have 2 pair. One starts right under my chest and goes to mid-thigh and I hate them. They always roll down and are very uncomfortable. I only wear them if there is no other option (usually just with bridesmaid or other formal dresses).
My other pair is like a corset and goes down to my waist. I wear it in place of a strapless bra and love it!
So...I guess it depends on what kind you get. Maybe you should see if there is anywhere near you that sells them and would let you try them on or try on someone's that you know before you buy them. Good luck!

I LURVE my spanx i have 2 pair i baught them from Lane Bryant and i can NOT live with out them specially when it comes to dresses! I introduced all my gal pals to them and they luv em as well! I have one pair that goes from under my bust to my knee cap they give me a great line in a dress and they dont make it so u cant move or breathe like some of the other brands nor do spanx roll down if u by the right fit for ur body :) i have to admit that i am the biggest out of all my gal pals BUT i encouraged them to buy their spanx from lane bryant bcuz the girls that work in those stores know how to make sure u buy the right pair for ur bod! Thats my advice anyway :)

I LOVE them! I have two pair.. one that goes up to my chest (annoying, just like A.D. said, but great for when you really need a tuck) and another that go just above the muffin-top. If you want to borrow mine for a day, you may! :)

Mine always roll down! Maybe I don't buy the right size but I've tried them numerous times and they don't work for me :(

I recently was in a wedding with a hideous bridesmaid dress - I was saved only by the spanx which held me all together. I say spanx it. :)

I like them (although they are not always the most comfortable thing in the world!)
