Posting to follow…  I have an extra-long torso as well, and have the same problem with spanx and other supposed high-waisted shapewear…

Have you tried special order from a Penney’s or Macy’s Catalog. You can go into the Department Store, they can measure you and special order. It’s worth a try.

I lost 160lbs(the hard way~no medical help at all)and it took me 5 years.  And I was left with so much extra skin.

I looked everywhere for something….but there was nothing.

Depending on how much you have, your insurance might pay for a panniculectomy ~ mine did.  And I donated my extra skin to burn victims.  But after surgery~they give you this AWESOME thing to hold you to help you heal.  I actually gave mine to a friend who had a baby and needed something to help her(also long torso’ed)fit into a bridesmaid dress.  It worked perfectly for her.

I don’t know what they’re called….but you might be able to call plastic surgeons and get one?
