The Best of Both Worlds – Assests by Sarah Blakely Tanks
Readers who have been with me for a while know I’m obsessed with Charlotte Russe camis I wear as undershirts almost daily. They’re comfy and cheap. But, unfortunately, they don’t last very long.
At one point I was wearing Yummy Tummy tanks to smooth out my midsection. But they were almost too tight to be worth it.
Well, I finally found the best of both worlds in this Assets tank. Before fashion week, I was unfamiliar with the brand. Sarah Blakely, the founder of Spanx, started the lower end line of underwear for Target. The pieces function like Spanx, they just lack the bells and whistles.
When I attended the Spanx Spring 2010 press showing, I also got an intro to Assests and a few undergarments to take home. Among them was this tank and I haven’t taken it off since. I love how the tank smooths out my body and also allows me to breath normally. It also doesn’t stretch out or change color like the Charlotte Russe style. Plus it’s only $20. Totally worth the extra cash because it lasts SO much longer.
I also wear the “Unbelievable Underwear” as a slip sometimes. $15 and just like Spanx!
Bottom line: Assets is definitely worth a shot.
