To Spanx or Not to Spanx?

I know I'm way behind in pondering this question, but my curiosity about Spanx flared recently when my (20-something, very petite) friend Amanda happened to mention to me that she wears these Nude Midthigh Shapers daily. I was surprised: I have other friends who swear by them for slinky-fitting dresses, and I'd always thought of them as more of a special-occasion undergarment. Amanda says she's addicted to the cinched-in feeling and assuredness that there are no little bulges peeking through her clothes—so much so that she started wearing them every day, and under literally everything (even leggings!). I've never gotten around to trying them myself, so now I'm wondering if I've been missing out on something. What do you think? Is anyone else out there as hooked as Amanda is?
