    I have a corset and slimming vest and they make me smooth and no bulges. I highly recommend them but they can be uncomfortable as they are very tight... well mine are anyway.

    mine are from kays catalogue through the trinny and sussannah range. they are quite pricey but if you wear them under a dress or something then they are worth every penny. mine cost around £30 each.

    I shop with SimplyBe and Kays all the time as I am not a fan of Evans. It is a pain that they take so long to arrive though.

    The big brances of Debenhams do them girls..and should be same price!! I have a pair that take me about 1/2 hour to get into it's a case of easing up a bit at a time..look like i'm doing some made dance!! Luckily the have a hole bit so you don't have that ordeal when you need the loo and on this diet that would be a nightmare.
    I think the results look good ish but they are not comfy at all i think.x

    I got some spanx from Debenhams. . One piece that goes from knees to under my bra. Excellent things :clap:

    Don't wear it any more, but it really was comfy for something that held you in that well :)

    I've got one of those! Love it!
    Very weird when I first wore it though - the 'hole' was freaky....

    I got some cheapys off ebay (new of course, no second hand pants for me lol!), they were under a tenner and did the job nicely. I won't say I lost a dress size in them, but they definitely gave me a much less wobbly sillhouette and more than anything, gave me the confidence that I was lacking. Mine start at my knees and stop at the bust too. When you take them out of the packet they look like they'd only just fit a 3 year old but they really do expand. I put mine on like a pair of tights...kind of roll them up, step in, roll up, wriggle about....DH caught me trying to get in them one time and damn near pissed himself laughing. So now he is banned!

    I bought a pair from primark for £6, they smoothed out all my lumps and bumps but I find them really annoying to wear to be honest. The ones I bought are like a pair of cycling shorts that come all the way up to my chest but I find that they tend to roll down a little at the back giving me odd bulges just under my bra, not a good look! lol. I don't know if this happens with the more expensive ones but maybe try a cheap pair first to see if you like them?

    I reccomend them as well. Not sure if mine were Spanx but I got them from the Simply Be web site and they weren't cheap but worth every penny or in this case pound.

    Got the full body one not because I wanted to be a size smaller but because the dress I was wearing clung to EVERY lump and bump!!!. The "spanx" smoothed me out wonderfully and the dress didn't cling to it as I thought.

    Must confess I did a bit of cutting as my boobies were squashed flat so I cut the front out also because it was the full body one going to the loo was going to be difficult till I made a few snips.
