Tune in every Tuesday to WCHE 1520AM at 3:00PM to join Dr. Lauren in her discussions of today's hot healthcare topics or join the conversation by calling 610-701-WCHE (9243).
I would be a liar if I said I do not wear Spanx. I love my shapewear, but only on special occasion! As I have said in practice and on my radio show, Wellness 411 on WCHE1520am, life was meant to be lived in moderation.
I was shocked to read in reports released last week that women are wearing Spanx every day! Not only that, but they are wearing them to tight, in other words, buying a smaller size than what they should. And to know surprise, our teenage girls who are growing up entirely too fast, are also wearing shapewear, really! Mother’s stop your teenage daughters’ from doing this, please.
What Spanx or shapewear can do if not worn appropriately is:
Compress your organs
Compress your bowel
Develop tingling, numbness and pain in your legs
Like everything in life, it is important to exercise moderation: Do not wear them too often and lastly, choosing the right fit is key.
Just be smart Ladies and like I said, I love my Spanx!
