Underneath a Bodycon dress

(6 Posts)

Oh wise ladies of mums net - please help me!

I have a date soon and have bought myself a lovely black Bodycon dress from Asos, and a wonderful pair of leopard skin boots - however I do need to wear a pair of (probably) opaque tights with it. As I have a rounded tummy, and carry a little weight on my hips, where the tights cut in it causes a sort of roll which us really not attractive! Does anyone have any tips for what to wear under a dress like this? I thought I could try control knickers over the tights but even they have a habit of rolling down when I sit! Any advice..? Thank you!

Ditch the tights wear Spanx?

Buy tights that are bigger than your usual size and pull them right up to under your bra.

M&S have good opaques which work well. Better than Spanx or control tights as they don't squidge the podgy bits out elsewhere.

I've got a great pair of high waisted control pants that have a sticky sort of band so they can't shift. Think I got them from very. I have violin hips so need to wear them or I also look weird!

Thank you ladies! I might take a look at very for the pants with the band! I hope he appreciates all this effort...!

And thanks for the tip about the tights...I'll try that if I can't find the pants! I had rules out Spanx because they were so expensive! Thanks again flowers
