If the M&S Tummt Control vest rolls up then what's the answer?

I'm wearing a knitted dress today and my tummy is not a good look so what can I wear underneath which is comfortable enough to wear all day and which will mould my midriff in a more acceptable shape? Have read a thread recently where several posters said the M&S vest rolls up and I'm not sure about Spanx with a wee-hole in the bottom! blushhmm

I have found really, really good control vests in Primark. In the underwear section the have a range of control underwear and it is excellent.

Have bought more expensive stuff in the past but I am so pleased with the Primark one, I have bought a further 2. The length is down to about hip level so looks smooth. The vests are £5.

Thanks Electric! Sound good but, sadly, my nearest Primark is a 40 mile drive! Any other recommendations Ladies?

Ah, fair point but I like it - looked lovely last year but my sweet tooth hasn't done me any favours! Hopefully a few weeks of doing Davina's DVD will help!!

Do you have a T K Maxx nearby? They usually sell Flexees and Belly Cloud "shapewear " vests which I think are pretty good and cost about £5.99. Agree the Primark ones are fab, haven't washed mine many times so don't know how they last but good so far. Re the M&S Tummy Control Vest. Are you wearing the right size, I think they are sized pretty small and have had success with the next size up. I think Spanx are overrated unless you are pretty small to begin with and are just trying to "smooth" rather than "shrink". Slight obsession with shapewear here.

The M&S one is fine if you tuck into your knickers.
Or I got the onsie - which is dress shaped - from asos - think they usually have discount codes kicking around, free next day delivery and free returns. Places like figleaves won't let you return stuff.

I have a problem with vests riding up too. I tend to start from the bottom instead and wear high waisted pants that come up to my bra, like this. Otherwise, with a dress I wear a Spanx half slip or the full slip. In truth I've got a spanx for every occasion, but I've probably had more wear out of the high rise pants. HTH.
