Interesting. Given how much she's contributed to image problems for young women and related health issues from her product, I hope she donates a few million to some relevant causes...
 
Good for her, she really does deserve it. it is a LOT harder to build a manufacturing company and make a Billion, then a software as a service company and make the same amount. Her ability to scale and leverage her idea has made all the difference.

Whatever works for her...
 
Fooling men is good business.
 
Now that's a mission statement!

"We deliver. We can make the world a better place, one butt at a time."
 
The reason behind every celebrity's wonderfully firm thighs.

I invented spanx in the mid 1980s! If only I had marketed them!
 
Smart lady! Lots of companies out there selling you stuff to make you thin - she's selling you stuff to make you LOOK thin. A lot easier than doing the diet! No wonder she's a billionaire. You go girl!
