I went through my big drawer of tights this morning and noticed that my Assets opaque (by Sara Blakely, it’s the bridge line of Spanx for Target) tights are faring much better than my Spanx tights. Very strange considering I only paid $12 for the Assets and $38 for the Spanx. The Spanx pair had little balls around the ankle area but the Assets pair was smooth as the first day I purchased them. Needlessly to say this concerns me, I mean you’d think Spanx would be of higher quality since it costs triple the price of Assets! My friend Melinda told me one of her Spanx tights ripped at the toes after one use, that’s like taking $38 and flushing it down the toilet. I needed to re-stock my black tights for the winter and guess where I went– straight to Target and picked up 3 pairs of Assets opaque tights in black. (But I did pick up the dual sided black/blue Spanx at Bluefly for 40% off, too.) SPANX by Sara Blakely ‘Tight End’ High Waist Tights $38 at Nordstrom
If you have tried both and disagree with me, let me know!
