Question Where can you buy Spanx ?

Just wondering if any of you know if you can find spanx at Macy's or another well known department store ? It's too late for me to get them online as we are leaving in a week. I live in a remote area and have one shopping day in the big city lol.... and that is Tuesday !
Any in put would be greatly appreciated, thanks

Nothing around here (as far as I can tell) - but Target does carry a similar style ... by the same company.

Too late, but I have had very good luck on e-bay. Jan

I had to go to West Palm Beach to get mine - Bloomingdales. We have regular stores here, i.e., Penneys, Macy's, Dilliards, etc but none of them sell Spanx. Be aware that the ones you buy at Target aren't Spanx - they will probably do in a pinch but they will fall apart and aren't made as well as the real Spanx - this was one time that paying the extra money (I paid $68) paid off for me. And the fact that they hook to my bra REALLY makes a difference - no rolling down! Hope you find some and no matter what, have a great cruise!

QVC sells them. If you had time you could order them and have
them shipped next day air.
But you said you are leaving Tuesday? As in the day after tomorrow?

Good luck with your search

I got mine at Marshall Fields which is now Macy's. I suggest you give them a call.

I know that Lane Bryant does carry them in plus sizes, but I haven't seen any in Macy's (doesn't mean that I haven't missed them). Jan

Not all Lane Bryants carry them. I went on a hunt for them this weekend. I know I was tired but when attempting to try on the ones I found at Parisian, I stopped at my knees and said forget it. XL is not very XL unless these were terribly missized.

On the spanx website you can locate dealers in your area.

I would still call ahead to make sure they carry them though.

Good luck and have fun putting them on. Slender people will have no problem. I however am not slender!
