Because society tells women that their worth is wrapped up in the size label stitched in the back of their skinny jeans, most of us have squeezed ourselves (sometimes crying) into shapewear at some point in our lives. If you haven’t, you’re either young, have never gestated a baby, or have an amazing metabolism and I hate you.
Just kidding. I’m jealous of you but I don’t hate you. Solidarity.
At any rate, mom Laura, the voice behind Knee Deep In Life, took her very first plunge with Spanx recently. To the delight of women and the internet in general, she filmed her experience trying to get into – and then out of – what should be outlaws as a torture device.
Note: Since she heard the smaller the better (oh Lord who hasn’t) she did order the product a size smaller than recommended. At the outset, the garment literally fits her thigh without falling down.
The best part is a toss-up between when she finally get the Spanx around her waist only to have it roll up like a stubborn sheet of wrapping paper and when she calls to her children for help and none of them care, not even a little bit.
But y’all, she’s British and she’s yelling at an undergarment, so really…it’s all funny. You’ll have to pick your own favorite part.
