Has anyone actually managed to piss through their Spanx then?

Without a wetting incident, either of gusset, bestockinged legs or, er, fingers (since presumably one has to utilise them to deal with said gusset)?

Because I got my (spanking new) Spanx today and am mystified.

It all seems a bit unsavoury. Though granted, preferable to taking them off. And on again. If they hadn't have been the right size, I shudder to think what might have happened (I did try them on in the hallway and various delivery men were due this morning).

i do not have any spanx monkeybird

so i do not fully understand your description

are you trying to tell me they have a wee hole?????

morningpaper Wed 23-Apr-08 22:03:03


are you impressed, apart from the wee wee issue?

does it come with a catheter?

DumbledoresGirl Wed 23-Apr-08 22:03:07

Why can't you just take them off like any other underwear? <mystified>

harpo - I hope that's what she means, I really do.

BettySpaghetti Wed 23-Apr-08 22:04:11

do you mean they have piss flaps ????

(I've always wanted to say "piss flaps" on a thread on mn grin)

Am needing to understand this more fully as was contemplating a pair but want to be fully briefed, so to speak wink. Had never thought about the logistics of this.

Do they work?

harpomarx Wed 23-Apr-08 22:04:54


do you change your name to post on serious and/or sensitive threads?

just wondering


DumbledoresGirl Wed 23-Apr-08 22:05:16

OMG MP, I have just looked at your profile. That is not for real is it? shock

beansmum Wed 23-Apr-08 22:05:56

it is easy if you are squatting, in bushes for example, not easy if you are sitting on a toilet like a normal person.

BroccoliSpears Wed 23-Apr-08 22:05:56

I have spanx but have never even considered using the wee hole. They're not that bad to get off and on, and the fallout of a hole-weeing incident gone wrong doesn't bear thinking about.

misdee Wed 23-Apr-08 22:06:06


did u get the all in one thingy then?

i just have the pants, no piss-flaps in those ones.

funnypeculiar Wed 23-Apr-08 22:06:18

woooow. More info needed.
I think.

morningpaper Wed 23-Apr-08 22:06:32

Blimey I'd forgotten I had anything on my profile, I panicked then

Yes that was me two years ago! NOT RECENT!

Gingerbear Wed 23-Apr-08 22:07:17


Best question ever!!!

<<yes I have!!!! blush>>

You need a good pelvic floor, and the right sized spanx.

Bet Gok never gets asked this!!!!

morningpaper Wed 23-Apr-08 22:07:22

are the WORTH IT?

I just tend to wear M&S Super Control tights with no knickers

DumbledoresGirl Wed 23-Apr-08 22:07:36

I hardly know what to say MP as I can see that you are not a mother of twins.

LilRedWG Wed 23-Apr-08 22:08:10

Dh wants to know what I'm giggling at. I daren't tell him that I'm researching the piss flaps on some potential underwear.

Monkeybird Wed 23-Apr-08 22:09:38

Betty [genius] - yes! They do actually have piss flaps!

I got 'em on. Though, MP, I have to say, what with my VERY dodgy stomach and the, well, hosiery-like nature of the Spanx, it did look rather like a really bad, shallow-end-of-the-gene-pool armed robbery for a while. There was quite a lot of folding and tucking in the stomach area. I still looked pregnant, but an altogether smoother pregnant. [Am not BTW]

The thing is, you really CAN't get them off. Well, not in the time it takes you to just be able to hold in your post-baby wee. And if you then wanted to put them back on again, you'd be ready for the carriages at midnight before you got out of the ladies again.

I have a MAJOR wrinkly skin issue

I'm only 5 foot

baby was 8 pounds 8

Gingerbear Wed 23-Apr-08 22:11:14

Oh, MP, you have no chance!

morningpaper Wed 23-Apr-08 22:11:42


it is WORKING?

not all leaking out of the top or bottom? (I mean your fat, not your urine)

I really need something to do the job that my stomach muscles used to do

DumbledoresGirl Wed 23-Apr-08 22:12:01

Sorry, I know this is very rude to carry on discussing this on another's thread, but I am guessing you are quite short then? 3 of my babies were just shy of that weight and I never looked like that! I just can't get over it. Sorry!

jingleyjen Wed 23-Apr-08 22:12:10

Yep, I love them but (sorry if tmi) I have to lean forward whilst I pee otherwise I do dribble a little. but don't need hands involved.. perhaps a little practice smile

I am glad you like them.. I would go on an advert (as long as they didn't try to do a before and after shot)

Monkeybird Wed 23-Apr-08 22:12:12

I looked like that too MP (Snoopy's Nose we always called it.) No.3 boy was pretty much around my knees (hence armed robber's face for stomach in Spanx)
