Toilet trips when wearing Spanx, how do YOU do it?!

Not sure if this is a strange question to ask!

I have a pair of Spanx that I've worn one. I know they've got the little slash in the crotch which I assume you're supposed to wee through. But I was wholely unconvinced I keep dry pants so pretty much undressed every time I went for a wee!

Now this was a bit of a faff. I'm probably going to give them a second outing in a couple of weeks, so does anyone have any tips on successful faff-free weeing whilst wearing Spanx?! Ta!

(oh and they are the ones that come up to just under your boos, in case there are smaller ones available...)

I go for the undressing option. The alternative doesn't bear thinking about!

Don't break the seal - if you pee once you'll pee often ;-)

Sweet unfortunately I am a bit of a serial Pee-er! No avoiding it I'm afraid...

Yep naked, well maybe in my bra with all my clothes balancing on the door hook!

You learn grin

I don't think I've ever ended up, erm, damp [shudders]

And by the end of the night, I'm less concerned about staying dry as I am about crashing through the cubicle door half in half out of a piece of material that still amazes me that it goes on in the first place grin

Would you consider self catheterising? grin

It's tricky but can be done, once i've got them on if i pulled them down they'd never go back up again, especially if i've had a drink!

set off to the bog 20 mins before you think you need to. This gives you time to undress properly before getting so desperate a few mls leak out.

Bear in mind you will be so long in the cubicle, undressing, peeing and redressing that people will assume you are snorting lines off the cistern.

Come of of bogs looking a bit deranged, but over-chatty and intense

Daisy there have been ^many occasions where self-catherterising would have made things much much easier! Luckily (well, kind of) I won't be boozing so I should still have a certain amount of coordination to sort out the pants.

Or, I could just stop eating cakes so I don't need the Spanx in the first place grin

Just pee with them on. Honestly it's fine. The crotch slash actually works smile

Just wee with them on - it works fine for me and is strangely liberating!

It's not very dignified,but I do pee through the slash! Have never managed to pee on them.

I never dared pee through the slash and used to wrestle the fuckers down, thankfully the dog eventually ate the expensive fecker. I don't think even spanx could help me now unfortunately. I reckon a shewee would do the trick though, you could pop it up the slash <snigger>.

Never worn spanx, but I sometimes go running in a swimming costume (if I'm planning to swim afterwards, & with running tights over the top) and often need a last minute wee when I'm dressed.

All I can say, is make sure you've got a wodge of toilet paper already torn off and in your hand before you start holding the costume / spanx in place to pee through because it's really hard to tear toilet paper with one hand. You pull & it just keeps rolling ...
