Spanx is launching tights for your arms.
The shapewear company will begin selling “Arm Tights” on September 25, Vogue reports. Basically, the arm tights do what traditional Spanx do — smush any excess fat together, suction it in, and smooth it out — but for your arms instead of your thighs.
The semi-sheer crop top “tights” are already featured on Spanx’s website, priced from $US30 to $US34.
To be completely honest, we were baffled by this invention. Despite the Vogue reporter’s assurance that the arm tights were comfortable, we had to ask: Who would want to turn two more appendages into tightly packed sausages, enveloped in a semi-see-through shirt this fall?
Apparently, a lot of people do.
A quick search on Twitter to gauge the general reaction to arm tights didn’t turn up much regarding the new product. However, before the new product was announced, there were seemingly endless inquiries as to whether there were Spanx made for arms.
Clearly, we underestimated how many people want to shrink-wrap their entire body with Spanx.
Spanx obviously knew more than we did when it filed a patent for “arm tights” on April 20, 2017.
Spanx founder Sara Blakely has made a fortune by giving women what they want: a comfortable way to address one of their biggest bodily insecurities. Now, it looks like Spanx is targeting another one.
Someone could really make a killing making Spanx for arms.

If Spanx would make something for my upper arms I could spend the last year of my 30s completely encased in spandex like a lady sausage.
