Spandex squeezes into jeans territory

Spanx has expanded from sleek, slimming underwear into the field of everyone's favorite outerwear: jeans. The company, whose foundation garments have been helping women fit smoothly into work and special occasion clothes since the year 2000, introduced jeans in two styles, several cuts and three washes this summer.The Signature, $148, has a wide panel, control-top midsection with a slimming waistband and it zips on the side. The Slim-X, also $148, has a regular waistband, but promises to "tame your tummy, trim your thighs and lift your rear." We caught up with Spanx founder Sara Blakely to find out more.
