Ladies - Please Help Me....................

Found 5th Sep 2008
I am going to a friend's wedding next Saturday and today I got the perfect dress, I just fell in love with it. When I got it home and tried it on it was so disappointing because I look like I am pregant lol.

I look lovely and slim from the back and then I turn around and look like I am six months gone!!!

It has a ribbon just under the bust and then is quite tight flitting on the hips and flairs out at the thigh.

I was thinking about getting a panty girdle but as the dress is snug around the torso I know the lines would show through so I think the best option is an all in one girdle/bra. The bra. The top of the dress is a slight V shape.

I remember my mum going on about her panty girdle when she used to go out when she was younger but I just dont know where to start, please help me!!!

how about some of them wonder knickers, they always work on me!!

it probably looks 100 times worse to you than it does anyone else!!
Try googling Trinny & Susannah, or look on Littlewoods where they sell their clothes, as apparently they do some "magic pants" that are supposed to work wonders. I haven't tried them myself but they are supposed to be really good.

asda do them
M&S do a range of magic pants. Take your dress into the store, try on the pants (gusset has protection on it) and see which suits your shape.
I find a basque sometimes eliminates this problem as the boning in it shapes your figure, try Bravissimo as they usually have nice ones bravissimo.com/pro…ons but only for D cup plus, otherwise I have had a nice one from BHS before now.
Thank you all so much for all your help guys and so quickly too!

I am so stressed out about it I think I will worry about it in the morning, i am too tired to be looking at basques and things now I might panic buy something and regret it tomorrow when I have a fresh head!

You are all so great on here!
I was going to suggest magic knickers as well there supposed to be really good, and agree it probablt doesn't look as bad as you think it does:roll: good luck hun I know what its like when you just don't feel right in something.
Awww thanks, I am just gutted because I absolutely love the dress, I cant stop looking at it!

I will try a few of the options later and report back x
Peacocks now do a body slimmer range. They have an all in one suit that starts under the bra line and goes down to your thighs. That might work. Not expensive from what I remember.
ill warn you know, do not use any of the "cheap make" sliiming or magic pants. they dont work, ave tried loads!! they r great when tryong on but after an hour they fall down, and rub the best ones to buy are psanx, you get them from figleaves. i bought them a year ago, are amazing. dont roll down, fit poerfect i have the full body, legs bum and tum. stop just underbust. there baout 27 but figleaves often has vouchers. and they have a pee hole, which is great..... spanx!!!
I would say the the magic pants too Stacey, my friend always swore by Sloggi's, I dunno if they still do them though.

Good luck and the dress sounds lovely, I am sure you will look stunning
It is so annoying, I sympathize with you. Over the next week cut out wheat from your diet and fizzy drinks, it will make a huge difference if you do it right. You could also use a control body shaper I got one from Matalan only £8 in a variety of sizes they go from your knee to under your bust so little chance of skin and fat bulging out. Good luck and have a great time and remember there is always someone else who probably feels fat there, even if their a size 10;-)
