East Coast, get ready for one huge, communal tummy tuck: this October, Spanx will open its first stand-alone shops. So if you live any where Tyson's Corner Center in Virginia, Garden State Plaza in New Jersey, and the King of Prussia Mall in Pennsylvania, congratulations, you're getting a Spanx boutique and you can expect to see plenty of women's (and men's!) shapewear, swimwear, and control activewear when the stores come to town. Spank you, spank you very much. [WWD]
