Spanx vs Mint Standard Shortie

Spanx vs Mint Standard Shortie

When I first set out to create the perfect under-dress shorts, Spanx seemed to be the only option. Don't get me wrong, I am a Spanx-lover. But I was going for something a little different. Let's compare. Fabric: The Mint Standard Shortie is made from athletic wear. So it is soft and stretchy. Moves with you. And comfortable for all day wear. Spanx is shapewear. So it will suck you in under those tighter dresses and help smooth out imperfections. Style: Both are higher waisted to avoid a muffin-top. But Spanx will suck you in even more for those fitted...

When I first set out on this endeavor - I knew I wanted to make dresses. But, if we're running, hiking, and riding bulls in a dress - some extra coverage is definitely needed.

Lularoe Carly vs. Mint Standard Original

Lularoe Carly vs. Mint Standard Original

A swing-style dress is pretty popular these days - so which one should you purchase? We decided to do an in-depth review of the cult favorite, Lularoe Carly vs. the Mint Standard Original.  Fabric: The Mint Standard Original wins, hands down on the fabric. Made from athletic wear, it wicks sweat and stretches with you. It can be washed and dried and holds up incredibly well to wear, with no pilling or shrinking. The Carly requests that you lay flat to dry - and we had issues with the fabric holding up to just a few wears. Pilling was bad...
