Sucking in the fat

I knew that would get your attention. I need to know if any of my 4 readers have worn Spankx or Flexees or anything like that. Basically, anything kind of undergarment you have worn that sucked in the fat and worked...I'm interested. This is for my bridesmaid dress. Alas, I do not think the losing weight fairy is going to make it here in time and its time for my mom to start the dress. Plus, we want it to be finished at the end of May when the bride will be here for a quick visit.

I have heard fantastic things about Spankx and I know everyone wears them on the red carpet. But...I'm having a temperature issue. I don't want a lot of bulk. This is going to be Maryland in June--very humid and hot. Most likely around 85, outdoor wedding. You get my point. Most of the Spankx I have seen are one piece and I'm pretty sure they do not make the top big enough to fit the girls. Then I've seen some that look like bike shorts, but again, seems like a lot of added material when I'm already wearing a 2 layer dress (crepe and sheer which is like chiffon).

I've seen Flexees underwear that have tummy control. That might do, if it actually works. My other option is the corset strapless bra. That usually gives good tummy control. The one I tried on at the bridal store was nice, but it was once size too small. So, if I can find one in my size that might work, though I am hesitant to wear a strapless bra due to the size of the girls.

It really is more complicated than it needs to be. I need to lift the girls up and suck in the tummy fat. Suggestions...please.

BTW: no the sleeping situation is not any better, but thanks for asking :)

Spanks are AMAZING!!!!!! THey do not make you hot- and they are VERY comfortable. my friend wears them almost everyday- I wont say who. No one knows her anyways. But really- if she can wear them everyday, you can wear them in 85 degree weather. :)

dude....spanx is the BEST! and not too hot and completely wearable. i mean of course you'll probably notice it since you don't wear it every day, but photos are forever and you can deal for a few hours!

Ok. I'm on the look out. I will be sticking with a regular bra because the strapless in my size is too big but the next size is too small. I decided not to try on the $79. Seriously? For a bra I will wear once. No thanks. I'd rather invest in the spanks or something like that.

Hey if you like them let me know AND where you get them. I've heard a lot about them but never knew, at least didn't think I knew, anyone who wears them.
