Now that I'm working full time, I don't have the time to train like I used to. I have never had the need for spanx or a similar item but boy do I do now. Any tips? Where to buy? What to buy? I have a slinky dress that needs some tightening up for a wedding next weekend.

I have always found the lingerie department at Macy's to be very helpful. They will even help you try them on.

I second Macy's. You must get the correct size or forever be unrolling.

I forget who posted this, but it still makes me laugh... Another member here decided to buy one small, thinking it would hold everything in tight and make her look even smaller.

She got all dressed up, felt and looked amazing, I think went to some type of formal thing... then sat down...

I quote "what happened next can only be described as a flabalanche"

I'm still laughing

SSM, I still laugh at that as well. Was it Unfound? I still use the term "flabalanche". Mostly during bathing suit season.

When I first saw this post I thought--OMG--been there. Seriously--the first time I put on a spanx thingy I almost strangled myself trying to get in to it, then it sort of got stuck halfway on and thought I was going to have to call 911 to help me either get it off or on; I was worried I would cut off my oxygen before I could get to the phone. I could see the headlines; "Woman Killed by Spanx"--I swear it was like being in an SNL skit.

I thought that was NoKidding's story

I wish I could take credit for flabalanche, as it's probably one the most brilliant terms ever created . I think it was NoKidding as well.


Even in the best fitting spanx, I've never been able to wear them past the first time I had to use the potty with them on. They always end up stuffed in my purse after a sweaty, futile battle to pull them back on in a 2x2 bathroom stall. Maybe I'm just doing it wrong though....

My max time wearing spanx is about 6 hours. Then I just cannot take it anymore. I have pulled them off in a bathroom stall and stuffed them in my purse before.

They make you look amazing, but they tend to cut off circulation after some time.

The pure joy of letting everything go when you take them off just might offset the feeling of being stuffed in a sausage casing for hours.

OMG, you guys have me worried. I'll be likely wearing this stuff for hours. The wedding starts at 3:30 pm and then the reception all night. I don't want to take the spanx off in the bathroom and not be able to fit back into the dress. Peeing!?!?! Never thought of that...why can't you pee in them. My bladder is the size of a goldfish!

I have one pair that I probably wore for a total of ten minutes. It didn't really smooth anything but pushed the fat to other locations. Mine, however, have an opening in the crotch. It's kinda like the pee hole opening on a pair of tighty whiteys. I'm not sure if they expect you to not wear underwear and open the hole up and pee out of there!!! It would be difficult and probably hilarious.

For me, they are hard to pull back up after going potty. Usually because I've gotten sweaty and they just won't go back (trying to put toothpaste back in the tube) or just don't have the room to maneuver in a stall that I do in the privacy of my own bedroom.

Wonder if they make ones with convenient potty portholes?

My favourite spanx story, which, sadly, hit kind of close to home.

Get a larger size than you think you need. You don't want to be squeezed, you just want to be smooth.

I hang out with dancers all the time. They have something like 5 layers of stuff on underneath those barely-there costumes. Spanx is good stuff. (I get the Target knock-offs.)

It’s like I’m birthing myself through a Spanx® vagina.
