Unless your Spanx fits snugly around your rib cage it will roll down!
In this regard, why do my Spanx roll up? Your shapewear may roll up or down because it’s too small and therefore too tight on your body. It can also create a lumpy look from overflow where the shapewear meets the skin. If you’ve chosen a piece that’s too long, it may not grip as well, which also causes roll–down.
Subsequently, do Spanx legs roll up? The top rolls down constantly and the legs roll up. I did not have this problem with my older pairs before Spanx changed the material. I am the exact same weight and have ordered the exact same sizes I have always worn.
Correspondingly, why does my shapewear roll down? Most of the time, high waisted shapewear rolls down because it is not fitted correctly around your rib cage.
