Every Mom Needs These Oprah-Approved Spanx Pants & They're Part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

·3 min read

Our life motto basically is: “If Oprah buys it, so will we.” As of late, we can’t get enough of her go-to miracle-working foot cream or Vionic sneakers, and now there’s one more thing she swears by that moms everywhere need to buy right now — oh, and it’s part of the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. And let us tell you, the discount is major.

In case you haven’t been keeping track or forgot because 2019 feels like 10 years ago now, Oprah’s Favorite Things list last year included the cult-fave Spanx Perfect Black Pant, and you’ve just hit the jackpot because they’re just $84 right now (originally $128). Let us tell you, these life-changing pants were made for every mom in desperate need of comfy clothes these days. Oprah’s list is the holy grail of shopping recommendations and not to be taken lightly, so BRB, we’re going to be picking up a couple pairs of these right now!

If you’re tired of wearing leggings on repeat these days (*raises hand) but aren’t ready to go back to real pants just yet, these Spanx leggings strike the perfect balance between comfort and not looking like you just dragged yourself out of bed. They offer the stretch and comfort that moms need for chasing around kids around but offer a sleeker silhouette that doesn’t look as dressed down as leggings.

So, whether you’re continuing to work from home, heading back to the office, or buckling up for remote learning this year, these Oprah-approved Spanx pants will breathe some new life into your cozy wardrobe collection. While they come in skinny, ankle and legit legging styles, only the skinny ones are on sale for now, but we’ve rounded up some other Spanx picks on sale for more Oprah-approved options.

Our mission at SheKnows is to empower and inspire women, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.

Spanx The Perfect Black Pant Skinny Pants (Regular)

You’ll fool everyone with these professional, yet legging-like pants that Oprah can’t get enough of. Four-way stretch provides the best comfort around.

Spanx The Perfect Black Pant (Petite Plus)

The same classic style as above, but in petite sizing. Consider your at-home capsule wardrobe complete.

Spanx Faux Leather Leggings


These sleek faux leather leggings are even cheaper than Oprah’s official pick and happen to be another super popular find. Wear it with a tee and sneakers or dress it up with a moto jacket and heels.

Workout to Waves Mesh Panel Sports Bra

You need a new comfy bra to wear with your new go-to leggings, and this one is a mom-friendly choice for running around the house or taking a sprint around the neighborhood. It won’t dig into your skin so you won’t have the urge to take it off mid-day.

Spanx Ponte Ankle Leggings


If we’re being honest, one can never have too many pairs of leggings, so might as well grab these full-coverage bottoms while they’re on sale too. Being comfy is always in style for moms.
