I am really liking Target's version of Spanx, Assets! Created by the same woman, Sara Blakely, Assests are amazing. The downfall is that there are nowhere near as many variations in Assets but I think it's only a matter of time. I was thrilled after I bought them, wearing them 2 or 3 times then having to get a new pair because I put runs in them which I thought was perfectly acceptable for stockings but, after the reading the reviews there are many people who would disagree with me. I wonder:
Either way, I love Assets! The stockings last 2/3 times but the tights are even better. And with all the shaping fabulouness of Spanx combined with the frugal price tag of Target it's a win/win situation.
