It was during a recent beach vacation that my dependence became clear. I was planning to wear my go-to, always-looks-amazing summer dress to dinner. Everything was going smoothly (pun definitely intended)-until I realized I forgot to pack my Spanx. Cue mental breakdown.

And although those babies are still nestled safely in my drawer, I've learned not to be controlled by control-top.
