Shapermint Contact vs Spanx Boston – An Honest Review
Shapermint Contact compared to Spanx Boston
Trying to find the perfect pair of leggings these days is both easier and harder than it’s ever been before.
On the one hand, you have all kinds of amazing options from companies like Shapermint and Spanx (just to name a couple). On the other hand, you have so many different options that it’s almost impossible to settle on which brand you should purchase leggings from first.
Hopefully this helps settle a little bit of the confusion!
Shapermint is an interesting company in that it is a relatively new upstart to the leggings world, even though leggings really only started to take over and dominate the fashion community in 2015 (not all that long ago).
Right out of the gate, however, they very much put Spanx Boston squarely in their crosshairs. They wanted to become the leggings company for a millennial generation that wanted more fashion forward options then Spanx was making at that particular point in time, while still offering shape adjusting clothing pieces and accessories that worked as well as Spanx did.
Incredibly comfortable (and supersoft) it’s hard to imagine a company trying to create a “knockoff” version of Spanx Boston and pulling it off as successfully as Shapermint Contact has been able to ” but that’s still exactly what their leggings feel like. A knockoff version of Spanx.
These leggings are little bit lighter weight, a little less structured, and do not offer the same shape adjusting properties of traditional Spanx. But if you’re looking for something that’s cozy, comfortable, and very much fashion forward it’s hard to go wrong with this brand.
At this point in time, what you see is what you get when you go with leggings from Spanx.
Yes, the leggings that they offer are little bit more structured and a little bit snugger than many of the competitors products on the market today. But that isn’t an accident.
At the end of the day, Shapermint understands that they want they are pieces to be both fashion forward and comfortable while at the same time offering extra structure and shape adjusting properties that lighter materials and a looser fit simply cannot pull off.
If you want something that feels almost weightless but doesn’t hug your body like a second skin you might want to look closer at Shapermint. But if you want beautiful, comfortable, and lightweight leggings that also smooth your body and help you look a little tighter and a little more toned at the same time you can’t go wrong with Spanx.
