I need some sucky in underwear!

I'm at an 'in between' size at the moment. One size is just a bit on the neat side but the next size up gapes and looks too big.

I have a lovely top and trousers that I want to wear next weekend and they're 'OK' but not great on. I just look a bit 'doughy' round the middle IFKWIM. Can anyone suggest any body type underwear that will suck everything in a bit without it all spilling out my boobs - just to kind of smooth everything off so that it sits better?

Oh and something comfortable if possible as I don't want to be trussed up like a chicken all night.

Shameless bump!

Any of the evening crowd help me in my quest or is everyone else out having a good time on a Friday night? grin

Spanx higher power are great

Any chance you can do a crash diet before then? Loads of water, non bloating foods?

Sorry I'm no help about underwear.

I'm being really careful about what I eat and drinking loads of water too toffee but 3 c sections have not been kind to my stomach!!

Spanx Higher Power are great. I got 2 pairs for £22 from QVC.

Another vote for Spanx!

I saw the spanx higher power but was worried they would roll down?

Mine never do, they have like a sticky band that keeps them up.

Primark has a range of spanx like underwear that is supposed to be good value for money.

I completely misinterpreted the thread title wine

That is all.

I REALLY want to know what you thought it was about pies. grin

I can't wear Spanx. My body is too short and the roll down and height light my tummy even more.

I'm a size 10/12 and wear primark firm control underwear about £4 a pair. Look like normal undies and suck my bulging belly. (Well not so that I have a flat belly but I look a lot better)

I've got a "wear your own bra" all in one with longer legs that I got from Amazon.

It's this one and it's actually quite comfy as control underwear goes.

M&S range is gods - has different 'strengths' of sucky in ness
My other fab is the Sloggi ones which are cotton based and super comfortable.

All I shall say is that I'm very glad I noticed this is S&B and not the sex topic before I posted grin

M&S wear your own bra control body. With skirts/dresses, the wyob control slip is amazing, but the body is great. It can't roll down, doesn't flatten your norks, but holds your middle in wonderfully
