A few weeks ago, Spanx introduced their new line of Spanx Slimming Swimsuits.
Chubby girls everywhere jumped for joy.
(With no repercussions since we’re all wearing our Spanx body shapers, of course.)
Until we visited Spanx.com and saw that every model strutting around in a Spanx Slimming Swimsuit is a size 2 and disappears when they turn sideways.
Basically, the last people that would ever need a Spanx swimsuit.
To add insult to injury, the largest size is a size 16. A generous size 16, but a size 16 nonetheless.
So here’s my proposal, Spanx.
Prove that your new Slimming Swimsuits live up to the Spanx reputation.
Your target market needs convincing.
(Or so my informal Twitter poll of 4 other chubby girls leads me to believe.)
I’m a size 16-18 with some bodacious boobs. Send me samples of your new Spanx Slimming Swimsuits. Let me try them on and model them for my readers.
I promise not to use the fake tan and insta-slim options on Picnik and I’ll even return the swimsuits when I’m finished.
Call me. Let’s chat.
