During a recent interview on The View, actress Raven-Symoné said that she’s been wearing Spanx shapewear for the last decade and a half:

"I've been wearing Spanx since I was about 14 years old," Raven-Symoné said. "I was a lot heavier when I was younger and when you're heavy in the industry, you have to look a certain way. I used to put on two or three Spanx at a time and then a minimizer."

Raven-Symoné is now 29 years old, so Raven-Symoné has been wearing Spanx consistently for 15 years. Maybe if we use a different unit to measure the time this will sound less horrible.

Raven-Symoné has been wearing Spanx for approximately 180 months.

Raven-Symoné has been wearing Spanx for approximately 700 weeks.

Raven-Symoné has been wearing Spanx for approximately 5,000 days.

Raven-Symoné has been wearing Spanx for approximately 13,000 hours. 

Nope, no matter what unit of time you use — and even when you round down a LOT — it still sounds like her organs have been squeezed into a tiny little ball at the center of her body for a long time.
