Great Quality Products

ASSETS Fantastic Firmers Tank (by Spanx)

You can buy this affordable tank in 3 different colors (white, nude, & black) and wear it everyday, if you want.  I have a black one currently.  Don’t worry, it’s not bulky, so you can wear AFTER Winter season, too.  ASSETS line of Spanx is available at Ann Taylor Loft, Nordstrom, and Marshalls.  I didn’t know about Spanx until lately, BUT better late than never!
