There's a Spanx sale going on at Rue La La right now—and prices are more than half-off retail. There are even some harder-to-find Spanx products on offer—like this swimdress ($89, orig. $198), which we feel aesthetically conflicted about, but are pretty sure is a good idea. For those of you who are into more traditional gut-suckers, there's also a whole variety of footless tights, mid-thigh control tops, and bodices as well. [Rue La La]
