Though these would be ideal to hold in squidgy post 3rd child spare tyre,
for a start they came up higher than the waist of my jeans (good job smocks are in atm)then everytime I leant forward the waist band rolled down under belly which sort of popped out
Not sure why I bothered really as friends all sniggering at my trying to unroll without making it too obvious.......

Anybody else have this problem or am I just wearing the wrong size?

I tried these as my baby weight ain't going nowhere. To be honest I found that they just squidged my flab into more bizarre places.

This season, I will mostly be wearing
sacks .

Thought it was just me lol
Am between two sizes and bought the larger one so that the fat wouldn't be squeezed out around my thighs instead of my belly!

Knowing my luck if I bought the full body suit I would end up with a roll of fat around my neck

(and very glad it's not just me that finds magic knickers don't agree with her)

do they do petite magic knickers - for small in size and height but still have that disgusting too many huge pregnancies and they were huge babies tummies???

That flab has to go somewhere. Magic knickers are not actually magic, so the flab ends up being pushed up. I have also had the problem of the waistband rolling.

Ooh scienceteacher, you're v clever. I thought the magic knickers made the flab MAGICally disappear .

Very disappointed to discover it's not actually true .

The Spanx bodysuit that attaches to your bra strap is FAB. Hold on I'll find out the name!...brb

Ah - its the Slim Cognito shaping bodysuit. There are a few different styles. Its about £40 so not cheap but superb for mummy tummies. x

If anyone wants one some of these I have a brand new pair, took them out of the packet, half tried them on (over knickers!), realised I had picked up the wrong size & promptly lost the receipt. DOH

I'll add another vote for the spanx slim cognito suit - I used it post ds2 and it was great! Have lost a bit now, so not wearing it as much.....
