I have developed a little stomach pooch over the years. It is not terrible. Most people probably wouldn't notice but I notice it in some of my shirts. I want to look neat in my clothes so can anybody recommend a good body shaper to hold in my stomach. I tried one a few years ago but it was very uncomfortable. I want something that works but is comfortable as well.

Most people like Spanx (you usually have to size up one size to be comfortable) or Assets by Sarah Blakely (owner of Spanx) that is sold at Target. I have heard that Walmart's George brand has a very good shaper, but I have never seen it.

Spanx and like products are girdles...
Wear the proper size clothes (what you're wearing may be too tight!) so that little bit of "fat" doesn't "pooch" out...and move more, eat less....it will do the trick!

After I gained the post-marital weight I totally got "body shapers" LOL If you're overweight, even loose clothing will look bad if you can see bulges under it.
I recommend:
1. Getting some silk/silky slips. If you wear a dress, they'll will keep it from clinging to any fat you may have.
2. Buying any high-waisted body shaper if you're worried about your tummy. If thighs are not a problem, Bali also makes a kind of leotard thingy that covers your whole torso.
3. Going on a Diet because at some point camouflage is futile ;D

Default I need to shape up.

Hello to everyone,

Since I am 21 years of age, and still do have baby fats in my body. I need to find a body slimming clothes that would benefit me and give solution to my problem. I think of a clothes that will get me in shape and slim. I found out that there are so many garments that can help to shape up our body. One example is girdle, and there are different types of girdle (you can choose what do you prefer). When I used girdle, it is really tight to my body. And I'm not comfortable if I'm using it. What else can you suggest me to be in shape and slim.

BTW, you can check my facebook account [url=http://www.facebook.com/suzy.araneta]here.[/url]
