TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Sara Blakely was thrilled as she walked into her new Spanx store at International Plaza in Tampa early Friday. Blakely, a Clearwater native, is among Time Magazine's Most Influential Women and Forbes Magazine's Billionaires. She has also joined Bill and Melinda Gates in their pledge to donate a large portion of her wealth to charity.

Today's 'Jiggle-Free Jubilee' event marks the opening of her Tampa store. Dozens of women lined up to meet the woman behind the popular slimming undergarment. Her mom and grandmother were also there for the ribbon cutting.

Spanx has now expanded to swimwear and athletic gear.

The store is located next to Nieman Marcus.
