Well after trying on a dress that I "thought" would fit it didn't because of my c-section flab that hangs over the incision... "go figure"..... My co worker said there was this thingamajig flab picker upper that Oprah recommends.... Do you know the name of it?

I didn't know how to really title the thread, so my apologies.

Hugs and love
Melissa

Are you talking about a body shaper? Kind of like a light weight girdle that sucks it in and smooths the lumps and bumps?? I love mine.:shhh:

I don't know the name, but you can find them at any clothing store that sells undies. There are all different kinds. I would need a couple!!!!

Loved the title of the thread, so funny!

I think you may mean "spanx" shapewear? I got one from ebay (new) as I had to fit into a dress for a wedding last yr also, they have different kinds that control different areas. Maybe you can look on ebay, not sure how quickly you need it. It did smooth things out and firm things up a bit. It is like a supergirdle....kind of have to squirm into it, and then wriggle out of it when going to the bathroom! So do not drink a lot of liquids when wearing it!

Yes, I was going to say Spanx too. The creator is a judge on American Inventor too :)

I think they're very uncomfortable, but use one for "special" occasions.

I have a Spanx and don't care for it at all. I'm a size 14/16, and it just didn't do anything for me at all. I wear my Lipo In a Box almost every day though. It does a great job of smoothing things out, and I don't think it's uncomfortable at all.

Worn under clothes, you can alter how you look to give you the confidence you need to wear even your most daring outfit. But they aren't magic wands. Once you take the Extreme Lower Tummy Control Shapewear off your body is still the same underneath. So while shapewear might flatter your body, it can't change it permanently.
