Help, I need inspiration! I have a wobbly tummy that needs to be hidden and disguised.
But all the sports shops I've been into seem to be selling tight, body revealing type clothes; calf length leggings, stretchy little tops, etc. Which is fine for the intimidatingly toned people wafting around my new gym but it would all look ridiculous on me.
I'm a size 12, but pregnancy has left me with a very stretched stomach, overhanging skin and lots of jiggle.
I have some M&S cropped leggings which are high waisted and really keep everything hidden. On my top half I wear 2 tops, one is tight and over the top I have a strappy yoga top which is loose fitting and so hides the bulges.
I wear a pair of Maidenform leggings which are amazing! Lycra-ish material but really high waisted and hold everything in so well. I recommend them to everyone! I buy mine from eBay as it's cheaper. I wear a L and I'm a size 14.
Also I got a top recently from primark which fits really nicely. It's not tight but not overly baggy either. Their sportswear section is really worth looking at as they have some great stuff.
I have some pants from Decathlon (an obscure brand of theirs called Domyos) which have a wide and deep waistband and they keep my mum tum well under control when running. Decent price, hardwearing too so if you don't mind non-brand sportswear, I would highly recommend getting a pair to try out.

I've got a top that's by LA Gear. It's a trapeze type cut so is tight on my boobs but flares out skimming by belly. It's a decent length too, so I don't worry about baring any flesh that I don't want to.
After having both my DC I have to admit I just wore gym leggings and a not fitted top. Getting rid of the wobble on my bum and tummy made me work harder! The day when I realised I felt less jiggling again as I ran I was delighted!
Here in the US Champion make leggings for Target which includes high waisted ones perfect for wobbly tummies. They are between $19 and $44 so not too expensive. A lot of what is sold in Target here is sold in Tesco in the UK.
