I have Lupus, Fibromyalgia and a TERRIBLE back that started when I was 16 (from riding, of course).
Anyways, I have gained a lot of weight since I got sick, so I wear Spanx a lot with dresses and such - but let me tell you, they help my back SO MUCH.
I wear Spanx a lot at horse shows, even when the outfit doesn't need it, just because the walking and bending with taking photos irritates my back so much. The compression of the Spanx helps so much.
