Maternity spanx - anyone tried?

I have a wedding next weekend and am 23wks pregnant. Have a fab dress but feel like could do with some help in the thigh area and also general smooth underwear!

Has anyone tried spanx maternity? If so can you advise on sizing? I am normally a size 10 pre pregnancy and not sure whether I will need small or medium but have to order online as can't get into a store online. Although I've put on about 9lb so far but I guess they're designed to accommodate that?!

Can anyone help?

Yes, I found them very useful for general smoothing. I was a size 12-14 and used medium, so small should work for you.

Just ordered some today, Debenhams are selling them for £24 and delivery is free if you collect from store.

Hi not spanx but something similar for skirts and dresses. It makes my bump feel protected and I generally feel like I look better with it on. I would definitely buy spanx!

I love my mama spanx!! Bought for a wedding recently and they were fab. But be careful when you wash them, I just stuck them in the washing machine and they've come out all bobbly so I guess they should be hand washed. Bugger. hmm

PS I'm a 12 and bought M.
