    Hi all,
    Im really struggling here with this big belly so I decided to give the Spanx undies a try. Forget it, they just didn't do anything. My stomach is firm so instead of the Spanx holding me in my stomach pushed back - quite funny really. Im a 37" waist with or without them.
    Any other ideas anyone ? :confused:

    Spanx don't make me thinner, but they do smooth out the bumps for me.

    Marks and sparks - old fash control pants are my favourite.

    I have some spanx and love them. They smooth you out and I must have soft fat as I lose an inch or two.

    I may be resorting to these for a Christmas party in December.... to smooth things out, but also as they might help me to not overeat as much!!! x

    I love them!! They're awesome and make everything smoothed out rather than jiggly :p

    I did try an own-brand kind before and I gotta say..Spanx all the way, the others did nothing :( hehe

    But yea, I must be really squishy too then 'cause I loose a couple of inches... especially thighs :)

    I LOVE SPANX! total life saver. I hate back fat and all that and spanx just smooth it out. I feel so much more comfortable wearing clothes cos you just cant see the bumps. x
