Hi All

So I have been doing SW for a few weeks now and have a friends wedding in a few weeks, I have bought a beautiful dress to wear but a bit worried about lumps and bumps. Can anyone recommed some control pants? The last pair I bought kept rolling down, which would not be a good look!!

Does it need to be sleeveless? Can you not wear the ones that are almost like a swimming costume but they don't come up as far as your boobs if you know what I mean?

I was looking at ones like these but noticed that they had mixed reviews, have you used one like this before? Just want to make sure I get a decent one as they can be quite expensive and you can't return them!

Spanx? M and S do a lot of good control pants and shape wear

Thank you for your reply
The full length ones with the sleeves, am I being daft here but do you have to roll the whole thing down in order to go to the toilet? Could be a bit difficult

I've got shorts ones they are like cycling shorts that go to your knees.

They have a hole/flap in for what I presume is for a wee.

I have one like that pic and they are press studs release, little plastic ones and I have one that has the hook and eye like a bra fastening.

You can also get a long test type one that goes to the top of your thighs. This type may be better as you can lift it up.

To be honest the only one I struggle to use the toilet with it the shorts ones which is why I hardly wear them.

Spanx are good and I've used the ones you get from Asda (normally at the end of the aisle with mascara and random items made by the same company just can't think of the brand name).
