I've just bought my outfit for my daughter's wedding in 7 weeks in a size 16 and it fits really well!! I've been a size 20 for years! I'm so excited!!!!!
There are a few 'lumpy bits' but I'm hoping some of those big knicker girdly things will help, can anyone offer advice on which to buy? Of course I've got another 7 weeks to go so hopefully it'll look even better. Just got to find shoes now and maybe a hat........:)

They've got some of those hold-in pants in Marks & Sparks which look pretty good (with and without legs) - I should try them, they're always great for lingerie. :)

Hi, well done! I like my marks&sparks ones they're by no means attractive-look like cycling shorts! Have you seen Gok Wans range? I like the purple nice corset-ey all in one thing.

Well done Bess,that's brilliant! You must be delighted :)

fantastic, well done!!! M&S do a fab range but I have discovered that George in Asda do the same range of "suck me in" underwear at a fraction of the price!! fantastic!

Well done! I have a size 16 dress in my wardrobe never worn but I have resisted the urge to get rid! I have been a size 20/22 for years and can't beleive you have gone down that fast in such a short time!
Wow!
As for pants, I have some gok wan under bust to above knee pants.. not very sexy looking but they smooth beautifully and have crotch opening so it doesnt take 30 mins to have a wee :)

Congratulations on your weight loss and going down the sizes:talk017:, when i was trying to find some to wear under my wedding dress i tried quite a few on, i found the best to be Asda ones, have heard spanx are amazing though! I would keep the tags on your suit though as in 7 weeks it may be hanging off you def if you have suck me in knickers on ;)

Well done you, it's a good feeling isn't it. Had a christening a few weeks ago and was in the same size as you. Had a party last night and wore the same thing and wish i'd got it in a different size as it was baggy!! So keep the tags on your outfit and make sure that you can take it back if you have too.

Well done that's fantastic - size 16! Spanx are meant to be really good and TK Maxx always have control undies. I had an under-dress shaper from Primark, it was like wearing a giant elastic condom but made my dress sit lovely. I think that was about £7.

Well done - it's a great feeling to drop a size. I agree with the others though...you may be a size smaller by the wedding so keep the tags on the dress!

Thanks so much everyone, I'll try all the places for 'hold me in knickers' that you suggest.
Wow! I hadn't really thought about getting much smaller in 7 weeks. I think the dress would still look ok if I was a 14 and I don't plan on getting smaller than that - I'm 50 and don't want to look scrawny! I'd rather be a little bit fat than scraggy and too wrinkly, so we'll have to see! The jacket may be too big though..............:D
