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).
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.
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!
