In the last 5 years I've gained a stone and can't seem to shift it, problem is I still go for the type of clothes I'd LIKE to look good in ! Today a tunic type dress arrived from Next, lovely quality, lined, but it looked ghastly on! Do Spanx really give you a smooth line and knock a dress size off? Or is that wishful thinking? I've ordered some to try... But before I part with 33 quid on a pair of knickers I'd like the brutal truth!
They give me a smoother line and perk my bum up but don't find they hold my stomach in dramatically plus I find the waistband rolls down. Best pair of suck them in pants that I've found are debenhams cycling short with high waist type ones for £ 12.
I don't rate the trinny and susannah ones or the gok wan ones.
But you can send them back if you don't like them once they arrive?
Yes, they work. I walked down the stairs all dressed up to go out, and my sister asked "Are you wearing Spanx?" She said they made huge difference.
As for comfort, they are a bit like a lovely pair of heels that you felt gorgeous in all evening, danced in them, but are nonetheless very glad to take off when you get home! I have the high-waisted bum-and-tum ones, and they don't roll down, though very occasionally the legs roll up. I can't work out why - possibly something to do with what material I wear over them?
i would dearly love to just drop the stone i gained but no matter what i seem to do it wont go! i go to the gym 3 times a week, i eat sensibly....im waiting for an injury to go to start running again.....im not a small 14. i can get my 14 jeans off without undoing them but i cant fasten my 12's! frustrating! im rather hoping for miracles with the spanx!
Yeah well I wasn't impressed enough to part with £33 on big knickers! I got size B... Second size up(I'm not huge!) but they did sod all for my tummy, which is really where need help! So they're off back... I think my slinky days are behind me!
