Caulk is right on Victoria's secrets and they are really helpful. They don't just do skimpy style they have some really nice short styles etc. I'm definitely heading back there for another stock up. Love their bras too
It doesn't seem that Victoria's Secret is aimed at someone my shape/size. I'd need the style with the greatest coverage and the largest size they come in is Medium. According to their size chart my hips are Large and my waist is Extra Large.
If you ordered online from m&s you could try in at home over your own knickers then send back if unsuitable. I only buy these ones now (in black). Am a 12-14 with a terrible wobbly baby tum and these cover everything while still looking nice. The lace trim means minimal vpl issues as well.
It's very hard to choose online as the models look to be a size 6 but are also photoshopped so there's no way to tell how the knickers will look on a size 14 with no flesh editted off (if only it was that easy). Also there's no detail on how 'controlling' they are. I feel doomed to wear the same pants forever.
This may sound like a bizarre suggestion, but I am a similar size and shape to you from the sounds of it. I buy Tesco seamless shorts. Cheap but perfect. Really comfortable, no VPL, keep my tummy a little in check. I buy a size M and they are fine.
