Hey ladies! In particular, I’m looking for a shapewear slip without the Spanx price. The night of my wedding FI and I will have dinner together and I’ll be changing into a dress that is close to a bandage-style dress. I know there’s nothing that will make my tummy TOTALLY flat, but I’d like to lessen the bulge.
Any suggestions besides “wear a different dress”?

Spanx has a lower priced line called Assets. Its essentially the same stuff.

You know, I have bought probably 6 different pieces of shapewear over the years, but the only one I would ever recommend to someone is spanx. they don’t feel as heavy and just do a much better job than the bargain brands!
I know that’s probably not the answer you wanted to hear, but after I did a major closet cleanout last spring, I actually threw away everything BUT my spanx. I’ve had the same pair of spanx for 8 or 9 years. Still looks good. No elastic popping away, no seams busting out.
I guess you could go to Macy’s and just try on differing brands. That’s the only way I’d buy that kind of stuff– once you settle on a style number, you can always check prices on Amazon before you buy.

The Assets brand is also made by Spanx and can be found at Target. It’s much more affordable.

I got my first Spanx at Marshalls for 18 dollars. It was green, that’s why I guess it was so discounted – and I never care about the colour under dark clothes.
The second one was light beige, I bought it on Ebay for like.. half price. I honestly do not know anything better than spanx.

I have to say I’m pretty impressed by the Spanx loyalty, so I’m rethinking this. (I mean, 8 or 9 years and still holding up?) I’ll also see about the Assets line.
Thank you for the responses so far!
