LOVE spanx! But i find the all in one bodysuits are better, kind of cover u all over! and believe it or not you can get some quite nice ones... try ort-DD-G/dp/B0028U3ZIO?ie=UTF8&ref=sr_1_2&sr=1-2&q id=1291671090&pf_rd_r=0NS47JY6FPZSVPHW61Y5&pf_rd_m =A2BO0OYVBKIQJM&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_i=62870031&pf_rd _p=215570647&pf_rd_s=related-items-3

I have a Trinny and Susannah body suit thing and it is amazing!
I got it from Amazon for £40 which was slightly cheaper than department stores, but I have recently seen them in TK Maxx for about £10!

I have some Marks & Spencer's magic shorts (at least that's what I think they're called)

if you imagine a pair of tights, but cut off the legs midthigh, and you're just left with a very reinforced top bit that's what they're like.

I found them fantastic, and they cost about five pounds. I'm a size 16 with an hourglass figure and I fit their large size. (Sizing I believe goes from small to XXL)

good luck

I've just bought a Spanx half-slip. It's great basically! It looks quite inoffensive as shapewear goes. Quite expensive at £40 including a Figleaves 20% discount, but hoping it'll get lots of wear.

I have the spanx shorts that come right up to your chest and attach to your bra. Expensive but great investment, nothing moves!

I have the Spanx that come to mid thigh and up to the bra. There are I think two versions, the slightly more heavy duty ones attach to your bra.... and are brilliant as they don't roll down and they are pretty smooth on the thigh.
