Knee-high Spanx = defective sausage casing?



Spanx_2The bottom half of my legs are the best part. In fact, anything higher starts to make my life a living hell. Thus my confusion when I saw knee-high Spanx in Dillards at Tyrone Square Mall.

I am a hardcore devotee of Spanx, the most face-rocking invention since carbs. And there is hometown pride - inventor Sara Blakely (pictured) hails from Clearwater! Spanx are protective of my mid-section in tight dress situations. They make poSarablakelylitical contributions to my no-visible-pantyline platform.

My boyfriend calls them "armor," but whatevs. 

Butt, yes. Stomach, yes. Thighs, yes. But why would you possibly want such suckage around the calves? You'd look like an exploded sausage.

Maybe they're not so tight. After all, Spanx carries lines of regular socks and fishnets. Has anyone tried the knee highs? Does anyone still WEAR knee highs? They're $14 for a pack of two, if you're so inclined.
