When you think of Spanx, your mind most likely goes to undergarments, but did you know the company that became famous for creating shapewear also has its own clothing line? From activewear to denim, the brand offers a complete array of garments made for all shapes and sizes.
There’s one item in particular that shoppers can’t seem to get enough of — the faux-leather leggings. Spanx's No. 1 bestselling leggings have been around for years, yet the internet still can't stop raving about them, mostly for their signature waistband and flattering silhouette.
During Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale, you can shop these sleek pants for 34% off. That means you can scoop them up for just $65, down from their original price of $98. We suggest adding these to your cart fast — they won't last long!
Featuring Spanx’s contoured Power Waistband, the leggings are designed to flatten the tummy area while flattering a woman's curves. With a high waist and no center seam, the snug pull-up pants are meant to offer full coverage and smooth lines.
The leggings first hit the market in 2015, but the brand told Shop TODAY that they've sold out numerous times since! During the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, they're back in stock and available in a glossy black color option, with sizes ranging from Petite XS to Regular XL. However, Nordstrom recommends ordering a size up for a more comfortable fit since they run small.
Over the years, the bestsellers have become an online sensation with over 5,000 posts on Instagram using the hashtag #spanxfauxleatherleggings.
But do they actually live up to the online hype? According to these happy customers, they absolutely do.
“I simply adore Spanx Faux Leather Leggings!” shopper Ivory Lukens told Shop TODAY. “They are perfect for any occasion.”
For Lukens, the leggings can easily transition from a “mompropriate” outfit to a sexier look for a night out on the town.
“The best part about them is you're [looking] fashion-forward in leggings (i.e., comfort), and it holds all the bits in!” said Lukens. “I started with the simple black pair and quickly got hooked. I now own eight pairs ... they are worth EVERY penny!”
Kaitlyn Voglesong is also a huge fan, telling Shop TODAY they are as comfortable as they are effective.
"They add edginess to any outfit, but you can also dress them down by throwing on a pair of sneakers and a simple tee," she said. "The built-in tummy control from the waist-contouring band is comfortable and noninvasive."
Looks like these would be a perfect addition for any wardrobe next season!
