Sara Blakely blew the doors off the shapewear world when she founded Spanx in 2000. No longer were shaping garments our little secret; they found their way to the red carpet, movies and television shows all over. Celebs loved Spanx for its effectiveness at smoothing and slimming - a combination of clever design and meticulous workmanship. But Sara Blakely didn't stop there. She wanted to bring those same benefits to women who might not have a celebrity budget. Enter Assets by Sara Blakely.
Assets is a line of shapewear and hosiery that makes perfect shaping affordable. The line includes control panties - from briefs to mid-thigh shapers - as well as an extensive collection of Assets by Sara Blakley Hosiery, leggings and tights. Assets footless shaping pantyhose and leggings are extremely popular for their shaping and adaptability - they can be worn in lengths anywhere from knee to ankle. The line also includes firming camisoles, tanks, bodysuits and slips. The tanks and camisoles are extremely popular. Cut long enough to stay put, they're designed to to stepped into and pulled up, which also gives 'the girls' a lift. And they're attractive enough to use as outerwear or under a sweater or jacket.
In fact, there is probably an Assets piece for anything you'd like to shape and control. Like the sexiness of a thong, but could use some tummy shaping? Assets has it. Need some torso and hip shaping? Assets firming tanks shape everything from just below the bra line through the whole torso. And, like Spanx, there is a complete line of control hosiery - from footless hose to high-waist firm control pantyhose and tights.
