About this time last year, Spanx's latest invention, Arm Tights, officially received the Vogue stamp of approval. An editor from the magazine tested them out at fashion week and said they made her arms look "slender and toned." It's funny how in just 12 months, the language surrounding body image can change so much, and for the good of us all.

And within this new Spanx creation lies a potentially useful little layering tool that could be a great part of your lingerie capsule wardrobe.
