Smoothing out those (considerable) lumps and bumps

Need some control undies. Have lost a lot of weight so lots of loose skin in the middle and still podgy in tummy area. Bum/legs ok. Got a couple of lovely dresses I want to wear but would look way better if I could pull it all in a bit. Used to wear these pre weight loss and they were great but now need smaller. Anyone got a better / cheaper suggestion? Must go all the way to bra line but don't want on my thighs. Need to be reasonably comfy too.

Take a look in Primark, the tummy control vests are £5 and come down to the top of my thighs and do a very effective job of streamlining my middle. Have not tried the big pants but have heard good reports.

Thanks but no primark here and unlikely to get to one soon.

I have some spanx with integral opaque tights. They are amazing, go up to just under my boobs, cost about £40 ( was a fashion emergency) but have had tons of wear from them, they don't ladder and suck in everything... Thoroughly recommended.

Have you looked in TKMaxx? They have a surprisingly good range and very good prices.
