I own the higher power panty and I like it!

It doesn’t take off size but it smoothes all the wobbly bits that I don’t like 😉

The only thing if you are going for a sheath dress the seam down the front and back will show through. But with any other dresses it won’t matter!

No advice, but I just wanted to say that the title of this post cracked me up.  I love how you cleared the air first. 🙂

Check to see where you fall in the chart – it is done on a height/weight chart like nylons. If you fall in the middle to upper part of your size I would get that size. Only go a size down if you are at the lower end of the range.

Trust me when you pull them out of the package you will think “how the he** am I going to fit into that!” and it is a workout to get them on LOL! So if you go to small you may not even get them on.

I just had my daughter 6 months ago -so needless to say I wasn’t thrilled to be trying on anything but I bought two shapewears for when I tried dresses on…I was not a huge fan of spanx- it wasn’t as good as everyone had told me.- I spent the 81.00 dollars on it too.  The dress I ended up buying I wont need them- but if you are looking for a good strapless bra I found one from macys that is awesome- best strapless I’ve tried on ever! I am 36Dirty Delete and this sucker holds them up great and is comfy

this was one of the other strapless “shapewears” I have which I ended up loving more than the spanx only downfall there is no padding in the cups though but it did keep all the lumps and bumps out.

I ended up getting the spanx half slip.   I like it a lot better than the panties/bike short style because it feels a bit more feminine, but is still slimming.  It is also totally seamless.
