I'm sure various people recommended these to me because the they did a reasonable job of keeping the mummy tummy under control, the top was soft enough to facilitate BFing and, I thought, they were long enough to not roll up.

Well, they roll up on me!! By the end of the morning, the top was sitting nicely above the large roll of fat and actually pushing it out further, rather than holding it in!!

Are there different sorts and I bought the wrong one? Am I just too fat?! Is there another brand which does a better job?

Will watch with interest - I've yet to find one that doesn't roll up.

Sorry I can't help.

Tuck them in your knickers or trousers! Mine will roll up if I don't

They roll up on me too. I'm very apple in shape. The only things that don't roll up on me are tummy control bodysuit type things. You can get vests with poppers on them from New Look if you fancy revisiting the 80s - I have a couple for emergency outfit fixing situations (don't tell anyone!)

I wonder about trying a larger size - mine is so tight it rolls up too. Mind you I guess if it is bigger it won't do the job of holding everything in so kind of defeats the object.

I'd already sized up to get the damn thing on. My normal size wouldn't even go over my thighs!! It's not that I mind what the size label says, it's just that buying two sizes up seems odd and, as you say, it may well not hold in so well.

I can't possibly wear a bodysuit every day - I remember the damn things being very uncomfortable first time round, so I won't be rushing to revisit that particular trend.

Sorry to sound so grumpy - I just had very high hopes for this camisole and it looks like I was just too optimistic!!

I pull mine on to go as low as poss then tuck in and it's fine. I didn't size up and I have plenty of flab
