You鈥檙e at a pal鈥檚 wedding and you realize you completely forgot to pack appropriate shoes. Or maybe you鈥檙e Rihanna and on your five-star resort聽vacay,聽you neglected聽to bring a swimsuit. Sure, we鈥檝e all been there.聽You always聽forget something important on a trip. It鈥檚 Murphy鈥檚 Law or something.聽After making the permanent move to LA with her singer husband John Legend, model and gourmet chef (she聽has聽a cookbook聽coming out any day now!)聽Chrissy Teigen聽is back in NYC for a brief stint 鈥 and this time, she forgot her gym wear. But undeterred, the model聽came up with one heck of a creative solution to her issue.

The聽Lip Sync Battle聽star posted this hilarious pic of herself on her Instagram. She wrote: 鈥淔orgot workout clothes. Wearing Spanx to the gym. Feeling pretty compressed. #nosquats #crotchhole鈥

While not so ideal for squats, Spanx as gym wear when there is no gym wear to be found is pretty brilliant. Although, it鈥檚 lucky her Spanx are black rather than nude, or she might raise a few eyebrows.

As for that crotch hole, Spanx should consider this an open letter to sew that opening up. Who can really pee through that little gap anyway?
