they are a def must have.  get the ones that go all the way up to the bottom of your boobs and go down to your mid thigh.

They can certainly work wonders… my only caveat is that on more than one occasion I’ve practically worked up a sweat trying to get those things up and over my butt (my largest feature).  It makes going to the bathroom a little tricker too.  I’d just think about the type of Spanx you’re getting vs. the type of dress you have.  You may very well have to take off your entire dress to go to bathroom, ha!  I love them for form-fitting clothes.  I’d just say determine which is more valuable to you–the pros or the cons.  Hope this helps!

I have a pair like described and they work, if you can get them on. It is a challenge and like vevans07 I have worked up  sweat to get them on. But I did just get something similar from Target, it’s shape ware called BARE I believe. They come all the way up under the boobs but are just like underwear, they don’t go down the thigh. LOVE them. Way easier to get on, more comfy and you still get the great smooth results for $15! I got it to try on dresses.

@pinkb: I think I am going to go and get this from Tar-Jay! By The Way, Spanx is not only for full figured ladies. I wear them for my dresses, they make your dresses lie flat on your body and hide all the bumps. I also have the one that has the ‘easy access slit’ ๐Ÿ™‚

@vevans07: haha cos nothing is sexier than a lady in a pair of spanx and nothing else.  p.s. you should probably run to the bathroom and change into something a little sexier on your wedding night haha

I think they are awesome, but they sometimes have the tendency to roll (even when they are the ‘right’ size).  I think it’s worth getting some (don’t get the ‘power panties’ ones that sit at your waist – get the ones that go all the way up to your bra line) and try it on for a day/afternoon.  The last thing you want is to feel super uncomfortable on the wedding day!

I have a crotchless boob-to-thigh one to! I LOVE it. It totally smoothes all of my bulges.

Sorry, I’m not full figured but I have a tummy (to the point that someone actually told me I looked pregnant, 6 months (and were totally being serious and told me to take a pregnancy test…LOL)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE spanx. I have 2 pairs.  Some people think they are uncomfortable but I honestly hardly know they’re there. They feel fine and make everything look nice and tight.  They are a little tricky to take off but I would NOT suggest using the little hole to pee out of, as someone else suggested.  I did that at my FI’s sister’s wedding and man, it was disastrous.  Well, almost disastrous, but I won’t get into it ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh, and I second you need to not let your Fiance see them on your wedding night. I am proud of my spanx and my Fiance sees them and he says, oh!!! those are so unattractive!!! Why do you wear them!!!!! It’s pretty funny because I torment him with my spanx.  I will admit, they are NOT sexy to look at!
