Re: Do you wear shapewear?

I have lumps and bumps and cellulite and a belly pooch. No matter how much weight I lose. I also have a compassionate and empathetic heart and a kind spirit. Must be something else to be perfect in every way and spread negativity wherever you GO on these FORUMS...

 

Yes I wear shapewear sometimes, helps me feel more confident in how I look in certain garments. In the winter I love shaping tights, already miss being able to wear them..

@greeneyedlady, if you are talking about the comment in Post 10, I believe that is a retread poster who has been on the boards with about 100 different names, gets banned but keeps coming back.  

 

I'm convinced she purposely posts the most rude and ridiculous comments to get a rise out of people.

I rarely wear them, but when I do it's usually for a special event when I'm wearing a fitted sheath type dress just to smooth things out. You have to get the proper size, or you end up compressing too much and squeezing skin and fat into other places.

Re: Do you wear shapewear?

I wear spanx under a large percentage of my summer dresses.  I am PLUS size (18/20) and for ME......now this is just ME......

 

Spanx don't make me look much smaller but they do HELP, it makes me look FIRM, not so much shaky shaky of the hips and behind.  I wear the spanx cami and the spanx thigh shorts item and it makes a WORLD of difference.  

 

I have some dresses that I won't wear without spanx, then I have some dresses where "I" can make it without it.

 

As another poster said, when I have on pants or crops with a tunic I don't wear spanx.

I wear a light compression tank, in the correct size, almost everyday. This is more about modesty than slimming. But when wearing knits or close fitting skirts or dresses, I wear a slip. Horrors to some, but it keeps my clothes hanging away from my body and reduces the appearance of any of that back fat nonsense. 

 

I do not wear compression shape wear when wearing pants. For my knit pants I do wear pant liners for those pants that are unlined.


Ms. KATE

 

I also SWEAR by SLIPS.  It makes a difference, there is a layer between your undergarments and skirts.  I also find some of these materials are so thin, a slip, spanx are required for modesty.

 

I agree the clothes does hang better.
