oliveoil · 08/05/2007 14:23


smooth as a baby's bottom

do not try and eat in them however, I went to a wedding and wanted to lie down after the meal

bozza · 08/05/2007 14:53

Well that is just fantastic for a dinner then?

oliveoil · 08/05/2007 14:59

no pain no gain bozza

they are good, I have worn them with trousers as well when the skimpy vest top thing I had clung to my pot belly wrinkles

bozza · 08/05/2007 15:02

I have a posh frock from TKMaxx. Was just in M&S at lunchtime checking out the stock because I also need a strapless bra.

catnip · 08/05/2007 17:13

Oh god. They look scarey.

I have just bought these ones and was sceptical but they are really worth the money. DD is 7 weeks old and was CS delivery so my waist, tummy and thighs look terrible and I have a really attractive overhang at the scar. I bought these to wear under a jersey dress for a hen night. Have only tried them on so not eaten in them yet!

StripeyKnickersSpottySocks · 08/05/2007 19:51

Thos m&s magic £20 knickers are the ones that the legs roll up on me. makes for a nasty roll of material under the dress.

Recently bought the Trinny and Susannah ones from Jigsaw and have to say am v.impressed.
No rolls of fat above and comfortable unlike M and S ones and BodySlimmers ones from John Lewis (recommended in India Knight The Shops book) I bought a few years ago.
I decided after these I would rather have a podgy belly than stomach cramps but have resorted back to trying out the above new ones after second dd born.
See this for Magic Knickers.

Hmm they look good. Flying Carpet, which ones did you get? the all over ones or just the tummy ones?

OP posts:
Flyingcarpet · 09/05/2007 11:51

I got the all over ones as I wanted maximum hold!
They look very funny without clothes - like a really bad pair of cycling shorts.

Flyingcarpet · 09/05/2007 11:55

By the way they go up really high to just under your bra.But they do work.
If you think it is likely to be hot you may be better with the tummy only ones.I'm thinking of getting these also.

isaidyesdear · 09/05/2007 15:44

I just got this to smooth out my wrinkly belly under a dress.

It is very comfy, but will need to wear a bra also.

LadyOfTheFlowers · 09/05/2007 15:45

not pants!
a gorgeous sexy basque is what you need!

twinsetandpearls · 09/05/2007 15:47

I had some thatI bought from spanx I think, that went up to my bra but they roll back down again!

twinsetandpearls · 09/05/2007 15:49

Flyingcarpet I was going to buy some trinny and sussanah ones but they come in sml, med,lge and I couldn't work out what size I needed

Flyingcarpet · 10/05/2007 09:21

I'm size 16 post baby and bought large.
Guidelines say sml 10-12 waist 23-27, med 12-14 waist 27-30, lge 16-18 waist 30-33.(They also do an Xlge and XXlge for up to size 26).
They seem pretty generous in my opinion.Hope they work!
