We have Macys in Sarasota. I would imagine you buy the next size up don't you? Probably need to try them on.

Spanx also has a line that is carried at Target. I bought some there and the quality was excellent - at about half the price of their regular line.

Chicos has some Spanx also. I've seen them in all of their stores.
Nordstrom carries a full line as well in their hosiery department.

I have a couple pair of Spanx, purchased from Nordstrom. They have them on sale at least once a year, you are allowed to pre-purchase them.

Lane Bryant carries them as well, but they don't have the Higher Power one----the one that comes all the way up to your bra.

I also live in FL and our Macy's do not carry Spanx. You can get them at Nordstrum, Nieman Marcus, etc - I had to go to Nordstrum in Palm Beach to get them. On the size - I also wear a 12 and am tall - I tried on the medium and the large (I got the ones from bra to mid thigh) and they both fit the same - I bought the large because they felt more comfortable. Will be wearing them next week on the Connie so I will let you know how it goes!

what are spanx??? Girl, you have been missing out--- I LOVE them and wear them under all my formals. They really shape your body and hide any flaws you may have.. I got mine off ebay (new) and have also tried the Target brand, but I personally like the orginal Spanx. There is a chart on the back to see your weight-much like pantyhose-- they are AWESOME and I never leave for a cruise or a night out without them!
