Do you wear underwear with Spanx? It’s a pretty personal question and one that was asked recently on “Today with Hoda & Jenna.” The morning show hosts got into a fun disagreement on air about whether you should or shouldn’t go commando under the shapewear. They were divided on the subject, so they brought in an expert to settle the matter.
- Jenna was firmly on team no undies, while Hoda says you do need them. They invited fans to weigh in by voting inTODAY Twitter polland it was pretty close, with 51.8% agreeing with Jenna.
- Savannah Guthrie, another “Today” show host, even called in to give her two cents, siding with Hoda. But after the hosts didn’t see eye to eye, they turned to the best person to answer it once and for all, Spanx founder Sara Blakely.
She called in to the show to put an end to the debate once and for all. “I have never been a lifeline on whether you should wear underwear or not, so this is exciting,” Blakely said. “But I will say that when I created Spanx 20 years ago, I designed them — and I’m glad you guys are talking about this because the nation’s divided — but, I designed them so you don’t wear underwear under them.” Her answer left Jenna delighted and saying, “Call Savannah. Call my mother. Thank you.”
