All British mama Laura wanted was a "stomach like Jennifer Lopez."

Tired of being asked, "when are you due?", the Knee Deep in Life blogger, who admits to being a bit of a "freak at the buffet," decided to order herself a pair of Spanx.

"It's small, though, I'm not going to lie, but I've been told the smaller the better," she says in a Facebook video when her purchase arrived. "The only disconcerting thing is: I'm pretty sure this is the same size as my thigh."

Her fears confirmed, (the garment is exactly the same size as her thigh), Laura then struggles to get the Spanx on. It's expletive-laden, cardio-intensive -  and the funniest thing you'll see today.

Take a look:

I don't know about you, but I lost it at : "Look at my belly button! It looks like a small vagina." Well, that and her kids giving absolutely zero that their mum is being strangled by an item of clothing.

As you can imagine, Laura's review is clear: "I'm going to say, don't buy it. I think I've just damaged a heap of internal organs. I think I'm going to have to get some scissors.
"Oh sweet jesus," she signs off. "This hasn't gone to plan."
Understandably, the video has since gone viral, with women around the planet sharing their own Spanx horror stories:
 
 
 Spanx was created by Satan? Yep -  we'd have to agree with that.
