Shapewear can be a total godsend. It helps to smooth everything out and give you that extra bit of confidence to wear a satin skirt or a body-hugging dress. But sometimes, the folks who manufacture shapewear get a little carried away (read: rubber corsets and maternity Spanx).
Last week, we found a spiked corset online and decided it was time to do a roundup of the most outrageous shapewear items on the market right now -- and we have to say, some of these look a little dangerous.
1. Spanx for pregnant women? (buy here)
2. Rubber corset, anyone? (buy here)
3. Spiked corset -- ouch. (buy here)
4. It's a sparkly green body plate, duh. (buy here)
5. For those times you just need a lace-up waist cincher. (buy here)
6. Shapewear to wear under caftans. (buy here)
7. Umm... Spanx briefs? (buy here)
