Reduce your sodium like crazy, no packaged foods, no carbonated drinks, no gum. All of those things make your tummy look more bloated than it is.

Aww, I wish I could give you a suggestion.  FWIW, I am sure you look amazing and your “big tummy” doesn’t look nearly as big as you think!  You might be able to drop 5-10 pounds if you cut out a lot of carbs and sugars.

Hi, Have you ever heard about the body magic girdle? Here is the google link where you can find ot more about it. It slims you down and takes you in up to 3 sizes. I tried it because one of the ladies at my church gave one to my mom as a gift. She didn’t think she needed it so she gave it to me and to my surprise it actullly slimmed me down by 2 sizes. I am 130lbs and am 5’4 and a half but I had gained a few lbs in Thanksgiving before I ordered my dress so I did a measure with it and without it since the salon wanted me to rder a size 12 which it turned out would have been too big either way. Anyway, there are a lot of local women here in Michigan who sell it but it is national, so you should be able to find someone near you. It is kind of like the new MaryKay. Check it out.

I have the same issue as you! Lost a bunch of weight but still have a poochy tummy. I have tried several things and none of them make my tummy look as flat as this thing. It’s the Instant Slimmer Firm Control Waistshaper by Flexees.

I don’t need flattening anywhere but around my midsection and this does the trick…flattens tummy, trims, the waist, and it’s very comfortable to wear.

i found the most amazing one at Macys! seriously i am a size 16 and it make my tummy flat! i returned it though bc it did not work well with my bra. also, i cant find it on their website. so i guess i am not much help but i would suggest going to macys and looking at those. it was a nude color, covers from under your bra to your hips and had hooks that you hooked up. they come in size s, m, l ,xl and 2x (not sure what size you are) i got the xl. it was $36…

good luck..

Understand. Check to see if they have an 800 number or something to see if you can find a rep in your area. It really works. They can be purchased online too, which is what most people do. I believe all the representativses get set up with web sites for web orders, but if you want to try it on I think you need to meet with a rep that has them for you to try to make sure its your size. They measure you to the fit.

I just checked and it looks like this one is the one you might use. It is called the golden Corset. I will ask the lady from my church if she can give me more information.
