Get Ready for Summer with SPANX Swimsuits!

Swimsuit season is upon us.  Are you ready?  Me neither. But here's the good news. SPANX has a new line of slimming swimwear.  Designed to give women the flattering fit, luxurious styling, and body shaping we've come to expect from the quality brand, SPANX Swimsuits bring fashionable shaping pool-side and to the beach.

Let's all breathe a collective sigh of relief.

"Since I grew up in Florida, I've always been a beach bum with a draw full of swimsuits," says SPANX founder Sara Blakely.  "Unfortunately, they all seemed to squeeze and pinch in all the wrong places."



The suits are made with the same unparalleled technology as all SPANX shape-wear, however, they're just as sexy and versatile as non-shaping swimsuits.  To compliment your personal style and body type, the suits are broken into several categories:

To Dive For Collection is full of fashionable, flattering suits featuring elegant ruching.
My pick: The classic Deep-V One Piece ($178)

All the Wave Collection includes shaping suits with tiered details.
My pick: The girly, ruffled Triangle Tankini Top ($128)

Shore Thing Collection are essential suits that merge fit and style.
My pick: The glamorous, color-blocked Structured One Piece (above photo, $198)

SPANX Swimsuits are available Bloomingdales, Lord & Taylor, Dillard's, and Victoria's Secret.com.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

(Tracy E. Hopkins) It's the end of a budget shopping era. Conway discount stores are closing in New York City . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to the Big Apple, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and

Probiotics Do a Body Good: Vitamin Shoppe Tips to Trust Your Gut

You've heard about probiotics.  But what are they and what do they do? We asked the Vitamin Shoppe's on-staff nutritionist Brian Tanzer for the skinny on the benefits of these good bacteria that help keep your gut healthy. Why you need probiotics? I f you eat a lot of processed foods, excess sugar or refined carbohydrates, the bacteria in your digestive tract might have a hard time staying in balance.  And probiotics   inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, promote good digestion, boost immune function, and increase resistance to infection. Tip:   You can find them in  capsule , tablet,  powder  and  chewable  forms. When you should take a probiotic?
