Spanx is slowly but surely on its way to taking over all your dresser drawers. The brand has not only been paving the way for shapewear since its inception in 2000, but it’s also been mastering every other clothing category it enters thanks to its ultra-flattering and innovative designs, from booty-sculpting leggings to non-jean straight leg jeans to stylish swimsuits.

Crafted from a lightweight, two-way stretch cotton fabric, all of the new Spanx bottoms feature the brand’s tummy-smoothing panel with buttonless front closures and functional back pockets. The OTG pants overall look reminds us a lot of the best-selling Perfect pants that Oprah included on her List of Favorite Things. But while the Perfect pant appears to be more like a work slack, the OTGs have a slightly slimmer silhouette and resemble more of denim style. 

They’re soft and stretchy and flattering — what more could you ask for? Whether you’re attending a summer soiree, heading to a music festival, or jetting off on vacation, the versatile pants and shorts will be the perfect addition to your wardrobe. 

Of course, the OTG bottoms come in neutral hues, like black and navy, but the collection also features some of the boldest prints and most vibrant colors we’ve seen from Spanx, like this pretty coral terracotta and this red and purple zebra stripe. Shorts start at $88 a pair, while pants go for $128. All bottoms are available in sizes XS to 3X, and several let you choose your inseam length so you can find the best fit. 

Like all new Spanx styles, these are sure to sell out soon. In fact, the brown zebra-patterned pants are already on their way out of stock, so we have no doubt the other OTG styles will follow suit.
