OK, “obliteration” may be an overstatement, but you get the point!!
Spanx and other types of shapewear are a go-to for A-listers on red carpets — such as Beyoncé, Emma Watson, and Sofia Vergara, to name a few — as well as for people just wanting extra support beneath their clothes!
But all that squishing and squeezing of the internal organs can actually have unhealthy side effects.

Ever wonder how A-listers like Beyonce, Emma Watson, Jennifer Lopez, Sofia Vergara, and Kelly Osbourne look flawless in their impossibly tight gowns?
It’s because they all use the same shapewear!
Designer Kiana Anvaripour developed a new line of Spanx-like undergarments called dMondaine with the goal of keeping curves in place while still being comfortable.
And unlike other shapewear brands, the collection is designed to

Octavia Spencer no longer holds the record for "Most Amount of Spanx" worn in one night.
The Help actress has been dethroned by the one and only Adele who wore four, count 'em FOUR, pairs of the body smoothing shapewear to the Grammys this year.
The six-time Grammy winner revealed to Matt Lauer:
"I had three or four pairs of Spanx on that night but I loved it. I actually had another dress made and I ended up passed out in it. It had a corset and I was like, 'I can't wear that,' so I ended up wearing this instead."
And that's why we love you, gurl! Keepin' it real!

It seems Australian singer/media personality Ricki Lee Coulter will not be baring her bum for Hold Me Tightly shapewear once her contract is up because…
She's just too skinny!
The Australian Idol alum went from a size 14 to a size 8 and no longer has the shape that shapewear represents.

Hi Netta P!
Will shapewear work for me? I wouldn't say im obese but I am a little
overweight AND I am a MAN!! I've got several dinner parties to go to in the
next couple of weeks for Christmas and want to look my best. Will plus size
shapewear do the trick?
Our fashion expert Netta P says…
I don't see why not! if shapewear in women's straight sizes doesn't exist, why not try it in plus sizes? A friend of mine, Miss Marie Denee aka the Curvy Fashionista, just did an EXCELLENT post on shapewear. Check that out.
Also, I don't know if you know this or not, but shapewear for men actually DOES exist. Spanx got into that market awhile ago honey. Tell them I sent you! Merry Christmas btw!

2(x)ist shapewear is a hit with the fellas — especially below the belt!
One of the label's most popular products is shape lifting undies, which lifts both the package and butt.
Just goes to show you should never judge a package by its bulge.
