I bought a pair of these all-in-one magic pants, where there is a tummy control panel that you pull up to just under bra line, in an attempt to achieve a slim silhouette when wearing a dress to a wedding.
I've been wearing them at home to try them out and it only lasts about 5 mins before the top of it starts rolling down so that I have the equivalent of a muffin top appearing right under my bra - it's just pushing all the fat up!
There is a single strip of something inside the top which I think is supposed to stick to your skin but that isn't doing anything really.
My mate safety pins them to the side of her bra don't know how she manages the loo. I've got a slip thing with straps that you wear your own bra with, no quite a sucky in as the pants but more comfortable & no roll.
I bought this to go under my outfit for my daughter's wedding in place of "big knickers" It was perfect when I first tried it on and stood in front of the mirror but on the day when I was moving around the whole thing rolled up into a big sausage round my middle and gave the complete opposite to the silhouette I was after. I spent time with my hand up my skirt trying to adjust and eventually gave up. Complete waste of money and very disappointing when I was trying to look my best
Not the greatest review if you are trying to avoid a muffin top!
