Good reasonably priced shapewear?

Hi, have a night out tomorrow (first in a looong time) and thought I would sort out today what to wear rather than leave it until the last minute as usual then having a strop as nothing fits or looks any good! grin

Having lost a couple of stones I'm a smallish 12 but still have a real jelly belly that means anything fitted looks rubbish unless there's some serious lycra underneath!

Dug out my trusty spanx and tried on a satin Jane Norman dress I bought ages ago on eBay but haven't worn yet and was really happy with how I looked (which never happens) until I noticed the split up the thigh showcasing my spanx blush

Looked at the spanx that doesn't cover the legs (just the gut) and they're £39! Any recommendations for some that aren't that pricey but will still contain my wine belly?

Thanks, Clare

Primark have them for £6, but I haven't tried them so don't know how they compare to Spanx.

I've heard good things about primark. Not tried them myself.
