Olivia Before And After Spanx Pictures

It’s not the case with the Spanx photos of an Instagram user Olivia (@selfloveliv), as she motivated people to be proud of their bodies. Olivia, recovering from an eating disorder, bought tummy-flattening shapewear about a year ago to make her feel confident about herself while wearing dresses. But the experiment didn’t work out.

Olivia found the waist-slimming briefs extremely uncomfortable, making her feel like she couldn’t breathe. Because of that, it gave Olivia a newfound appreciation for her body image. So, on her Instagram, Olivia explained that you don’t need clothing to admire yourself, and you don’t need a tight piece of material to wear a dress or top. You are already fabulous, flawless, and beautiful! Olivia proudly displayed her Spanx before and after pictures, and the photo received over 30,000 likes.

Should You Wear Spanx?

Experts advise wearing these tight undergarments with caution. Also, some suggest wearing it only on special occasions and not daily. So, when you decide on wearing Spanx or not, I recommend you consider the following impacts:

Positive Impacts

  • Enhances the appearance
  • Provides back support and posture improvement
  • Improves the abdominal muscles
  • Encourages perspiration to aid in weight loss
  • Allows you to lose inches quickly
  • Boosts self-esteem and confidence

Negative Impacts

  • Requires time and patience
  • Difficulty in bathroom breaks
  • Expensive
  • If you wear it more often or for a more extended period, it can cause health hazards such as:
    • It affects the lungs’ regular operation
    • Instability of the body’s blood circulation
    • Indigestion
    • Affects the bladder
    • Numbness of the legs
    • Skin and genital infections
    • Pinched nerves

I recommend wearing Spanx, especially for special occasions, as long as it’s not for an extended time or every day. You should consider its limitations and be cautious about different factors and their impacts. However, it’s still up to you if you want to have a smooth body shape and be more confident or feel comfortable and be yourself.
