Underwear for flabby 'apron'

I have lost four stone and am now size 8/10 but have a really big 'apron' due to fluctuations in weight for decades and three caesareans. Exercise has helped with lots of other loose skin but the apron isn't going to shift!
What would you recommend? I don't want anything where I can't breathe and I'd prefer it if they weren't enormous! I'm currently wearing scratty little cotton primark briefs which sit below the bulge and are no help at all! Thanks very much.

M&S do cotton firm support pants but if you buy a size up they provide nice support without been squeezed!

Thanks - good old M and S!

I like tesco knickers , they have a range of soft sort of shapewear ones but they are comfy . They really hold in my tummy well.. usually come in a pack of two and are about £6.

I like m&s no VPL midi pants, they come up quite high and my belly always looks better in them.

Primark hangered pack of 3 stretch but not tight.. A fiver in black or nude...

For a size 8/10 I think Spanx works out better. You get really good support without the flab being moved to other parts of your body

Do you have a link @fucknuckle ? I've just taken a look on the ASOS app but couldn't find anything

After many dc and an emcs I have separated stomach muscles. Spanx are way way too tight for them. Makes me feel actually sick. The Primark ones are stretch but not as taught..

Thanks so much everyone. I think I might order a bit of a selection. I'll report back!

The high-waisted Brazilian knickers from M&S and Tu at Sainsburys are nice as they’re high enough to cover the apron but not ginormous around your bottom

Both Debenhams and Pour Moi offer control thongs for around £15, which are not overly rigid and are comfy providing you get the sizing right; you may want to try sizing up on the Pour Moi.

They do the job without looking too frmpy and ”Brigitish”.
