Spanx, the company that gave control-top pantyhose new meaning, is about to do the same thing for jeans. Spanx founder Sara Blakely said she just had to do something about the wardrobe staple to fix the "things about them I wish were different."

Blakely said Spanx will "put the skinny" into jeans "to offer women a new secret weapon."

The company said in a press release that it's waiting for a patent on its Triple Thread Technology, which will give its jeans stretch.

"The innovative patterns make thighs look thinner and legs longer, and strategically placed pockets perk up rear views," the company said in a release.

The jeans will come in two styles, Slim-X and Signature. Slim-X will come skinny, straight and super-skinny while Signature will be offered in skinny and straight.

The Washington Post reported the jeans will sell for $148 and be in department stores Aug. 25.
