I need something to squooosh my enormous gateau muffin top in under a dress and I don't fancy full on body shaping underwear.

M&S do some tights with a control panel around the stomach which are great. I've had mine a few years now and they are really good quality. I think they were about £12

You can buy tummy and bum support tights which i imagine would be high waisted.

They used to sell them on the outdoor market where i live.

You might find them on ebay

Don't they all go to the waist? Mine definitely encompass the love handle area. You can get body shaper type from M&S that are a bit firmer around the tummy too.

Maternity tights?

M&S 100 denier body shaper tights - buy a size up - I get medium and am 5'2" and 10/12. You want the tummy panel ones. There are h shaper ones too but frankly NK one is looking at my arae when they can see my stomach hanging out grin

Flipping heck, I find that all tights are way too high-waisted and I'm reasonably tallgrin

I've had tights from tesco and primark which are tummy control ones and come up almost to my bra. I love them cos they don't fall down(leading either to frequent toilet breaks or unladylike hoisting).

HA! Love everyones tights issues. I need it to go above the waist not on the waist, just below bra level if possible. I have one pair of tights that fit me, otherwise I find tights a nightmare, always end up with Nora Batty ankles blush
