I've had some from M&S and some from Debenhams that were both great, they were bout twenty pound a pair - but defo worth it. Also tried some from Primark and some from Matalan - but they were both a bit pointless, cut you in half and felt really uncomfy, and didn't make me look slimmer! xxx
Spanx panties (fab name eh?) are apparently very good.....
Have bought a number of pairs of big sucker-inners from matalan at £4 a pair and they really reduce you (by about a trouser size).
Also Debenhams have some which are like tan coloured thickish tights - cant remember the cost but not that much..... like cycling shorts but when i wore them (3-4 months ago) you could see the bulges where they squidged my thighs in, so in actual fact under my trousers my thighs looked like they had a waist! ha ha..... be careful with them then eh!!!!
I Have some fab ones from Debenhams, i just went and checked the label and no make/name in them so think they must be debenhams own.
They are like a mesh material and seamless at the back, so the fab part is there is no VLP and bulging bits. I'd definately recommend them. I brought mine in the debenhams sales reduced from £12 to £6...bargain.
Thanks Kitteh! There are loads of different Sloggi some better than others, I go for the Maxi control ones which are the most supportive they do - they aren't the most supportive available but have a good balance of comfort/support. There is a whole section on shape/control wear though and I am sure there are other brands in your size - bit of trial and error with what suits you best though.
Good luck! I have draws full of all sorts of support stuff I have collected over the years!
I cant fault my m and s ones, they go under my boobs and down to my thighs, really good for under dresses, I must admit I do feel like a trussed up chicken, do get used to it, but when i take them off I can breathe again!!!
As for bum uplifts, nah, my bum fell into my belly years ago!!!
