I need some pants that flatten my tummy without the overhang - do they exist?
I can't get along with those kind of pants at all, so I wear M&S tummy control vests when necessary. They are fantastic IMO - but you have to step into them rather then try to get them on over your head
I have these ones from Marks, they go right up to your bra so no overhang. I also have this slip which is great for giving a smooth line under dresses. If I'm really desperate I wear them both at once!
Get Marks and Spencer tummy shaper pants. They are less than half the price of Spanx, and much better IMO if you only need your tummy smoothed. If you also need your hips smoothing then Spanx would be the thing.
I used to wear m and s ones. But.... That flesh has to go somewhere! I'd get a bulge at the top of my legs and a muffin to p and I don't even HAVE a muffin top, when my body isn't being all squished up.
Instead, I now buy m&s sheer tights (black) and they have control around the tummy/backside..... Giving a smooth, leaner look. Much better.
I had various control undies and binned them. They made me self conscious and I was always trying to pull them up or down and prevent "rolls" at top and bottom!
I have a wear your own body size 14 m and s worn once for my 40th. I have dropped to. 12 I am no supermodel but exercise has changed my shape. It is virtually brand new- I don't want to offend you but you are more than welcome to it- it's sat in my drawer. I prefer thongs or big knicker, I find anything else not comfy!
