@madped - @geoincalifornia - I am going to jump into the Spanx convo here. I found one the other day and decided to try it out. OMG! I thought I was going to pass out. It was so constricted. I was wondering why I was putting myself through that .It was just the upper body one. I have another brand I bought it at Target. It's a body hugging one. It has clips at the bottom for bathroom time, So you don't have too be tugging and pulling it up or down. The top is really nice. It does not have cups where the bra area is but very small demi size cut outs. For the low cut blouses or Dresses. I love it. It makes me look slimmer. I have been eating too much! I have been exercising and lost 2 Lbs. Yay! I weigh 123 exactly. But I do have chub in the belly area. So I am really happy with my Target find. It feels a bit more relaxed? than the Spanx that was cutting off my air supply.
