I need some serious scaffolding shapewear for post-baby belly sad

Looking for something bargainous that won't squeeze my folds into a weird muffin top halfway up my torso.

you need the knickers that go right up to the ribs, in my experience.

also Boots do high waisted tights, which are quite good, but expensive.

I am seriously considering a corset. I had a waspie corset thing but ended up with a quadruple-boob effect. Plus presumably it would negate the need for a bra..?

I used to strongly recommend Spanx but I bought a replacement pair recently and they have 'improved' the design, ie made them from vastly inferior fabric which doesn't do as good a job and is falling apart after one months use.

The shapewear from Primark is good for the price.

Thanks for responses.

I did actually have some knickers that went up to my ribs once, but they only got a couple of wears because they would roll down gradually, leaving me with a roll of flab sat atop a smaller roll of knickers.

Might check out the local Primark, even if it's crap will have only set me back £2 or something.

Primark looks good. Think it us about £5 or £7.

Was going to purchase but remembered I had something similar bought of qvc or the like.
