To ask if you have a stomach overhang thing?

The lower part of my tummy has never recovered after having my daughter (almost 9 yrs ago 😒) even at my slimmest size 10, the overhang was there.

It doesn't usually bother me that much, but I have my works do on friday and have a great dress I want to wear.

You can slightly see the motherfucking, bastard twatting overhang.

Does anyone know of ANY shapewear at all that could disguise the overhang? Don't care if it's uncomfortable 😂

Depends on the dress I think! What's it like? And what's the rest of your figure like? I think different things work for different shapes. I like the M&s shapewear tights, they have different types.

But if you wanted bare legs obviously not!

Yep. 2 giant babies have rendered me a bit wobbly. I am otherwise a slim size 10 but I look 3 months pregnant in a lot of clothes.

I have accepted the bulge.

I think most shape wear is terrible and uncomfortable. A pair of high waisted briefs is usually a better option (I think sloggi do some seamless ones)

I totally have that overhang. Spanx are still my favourite shape wear. I like the high waist ones but when I was smaller the normal waist ones worked well too.

I too have an mum apron. I have never managed to hide it, so I can only suggest you drink enough to forget it’s there 🍷

Yes, had a wobbly stretch marked tummy after large ds1 and ds2 and then I had major abdominal surgery when ds2 was 15 months old. It's hideous and I can't fully disguise it.

Although stretch marked and wobbly, my tummy was fine until I had the surgery. The surgery made the shelf which nothing but more surgery would fix.

This is something I've always wondered about...after 3 DC's mine looks like a little front bum blush

So how come all these celebs that have had multi parity haven't got one? And if I got down to my height of anorexic weight of 6 stone 2 would it still be there?

Pants-they do good tummy panel ones in M&S.

I have a waist corset which hides mine nicely in a posh dress

I like my m&s ones. They shape all my tummy in. Not completely flat but kind of levels it off so gives the appearance of smoother...not wobbly overhang if thay makes sense. Size 10 here.

I got a body shaper from M&S, light support to give smooth lines. Looks like a swimming costume rather than some torture device that you can't get in/out of easily

My figure is alright in other stuff. This dress isn't clingy really, just touches on my 'mum apron' (stealing that one 😝)

Yes, it's a free bar, so I think I will just drink until I don't give a shit pretty

Thank you all.

Reading the updates, I will take a trip to m & s tomorrow I think.

It will just give me that little boost of confidence.

The Spanx that go from the bottom of your bra strap to mid thigh are fab. I have had two decent size babies by EMCS and I have a small frame. Even when I am at my fighting weight, I need my Spanx in anything fitted.

MistyMinge Tue 12-Dec-17 21:07:26

Yep after 2 c-sections. First time round it wasn't too bad, but after number 2 it was a lot worse. I can't wear anything that clings round the tummy in the slightest. I hate it with a passion.

Santasbigredbobblehat Tue 12-Dec-17 21:07:55

I have. However slim I get. Spanx helps, but gives me stomach ache. hmm

Santasbigredbobblehat Tue 12-Dec-17 21:08:35

I refer to it as ‘the gunt’.

c3pu I think some of them have elective c sections and a tummy tuck at the same time too!

Try If you email them for advice with your size and type of dress, they will recommend, and have good return policy so I have bought a few and tried on. Not affiliated with them, but they give sensible advice and don't just try to flog you their most expensive line. I've recommended them to a few friends and they've been equally impressed. X

I have one too. Just big pants and tights seems to hold it mostly in on a daily basis, but then I don't wear tight dresses any more.

I can't be bothered to worry about it, perhaps if it were the only wobbly bit among lots of toned body, it would be annoying, but it isn'tsmile

Foxglovesandsweetpeas Tue 12-Dec-17 21:11:28

These are very good

DownstairsMixUp Tue 12-Dec-17 21:13:22

Yep high knickers sort it. Or being a size 6 but that's too much hard work

Don't other people feel sick and bloated and awful in shape wear? I feel like I can't eat or drink and get a really gripey stomach
