SPANX founder Sara Blakely was getting ready for a party when she realized she didn’t have the right undergarment to provide a smooth look under white pants. Armed with scissors and sheer genius, she cut the feet off her control top pantyhose and the SPANX revolution began!
Lightweight, all-day shaping that’s center-seam free—The Power Short features soft yarns and offers smoother results with less squeeze. SPANX designed it to be a "comfortable, everyday essential."
- Shaping zones target the stomach and provide all-over support with gradual release for comfort and movement
- Cotton blend gusset – wear as underwear and eliminate VPL (Visible Panty Lines)
- Double-gusset for ease when nature calls
- Spanx support Level 2: Shape - A Firm Hug
Colors: Very Black/Black and Taupe (SPANX calls it Soft Nude/Barest)
Fabric: 56% nylon, 44% spandex/elastane
Care instructions: machine wash cold, gentle cycle. Use only non-chlorine bleach when needed. Line dry.
Sizing: Very snug fit. (If you value smoothing over shaping, we recommend sizing up--particularly if you're close to the top edge of a size range.). See sizing chart for waist and hip measurement details. The back of the package provides these weight guidelines by weight: S 95-130 lbs. ; M 130-155 lbs. ; L 155-185 lbs. ; XL 185-225 lbs. ; 1X 227-270 lbs. ; 2X 270-305 lbs.
Note that we have a limited number of Higher Power Panties (what they used to call the HPS) in their previous packaging. The sizing is slightly different--but they are $4 cheaper! Sizing for the Higher Power Panties that we have in stock is as follows: A (H 4'10" - 5'5", 95-125 lbs.), D (5' - 6', 165-220 lbs.). E (5'1" - 6', 195-265 lbs.), F (5'1" - 6', 240-300 lbs.)
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT RETURNS: We cannot accept SPANX for return or exchange in our online or in-person store. If you are unsure about size, we recommend buying a single pair to try before buying more. (Perhaps you can wash them and pass them on to a friend or family member if they don’t fit?) Thanks for your understanding.
