Shapewear Follow Up

Okay, those girdle shorts were a naughty-bits death trap! Why the hell would anyone do that to themself? I got the size that they recommended for my measurements, and when I took them out of the box I thought it was made for a 5 year old! Then when I tried to get them on, it looked like I was trying to put Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits back into the little tin can. Then I had to have Zack help zip it up, and we just succeeded in zipping up my skin. It was awful! I just can't possibly suffer that much for fashion! It didn't even look good. If anything, it made me look less curvy by squashing my hips in. No thank you! I am returning them and going back to my spanks shorts!

  1. Did you go off your hip measurement or your waist?

  2. The waist, but the hip measurements for it were correct or near it. In reality, this thing is like 8 inches wide!

  3. Oh, that's not good at all! I've never tried to squeeze into a pair because they look like some kind of torture device. The open bottom girdles are much nicer!

  4. I really don't understand how anyone can wear shapewear with legs. I swear I can feel them pushing on my bits and I feel like I have a UTI & pee constantly. TMI? I don't know, but open bottom is all I can muster.

  5. This is the joy of living a vintage lifestyle in the year 2011...we can choose something that might work better and be wearable and comfortable!!!! I surely take advantage of advances when it comes to something like this. I need to move and those olf fashioned things, while cool to look at, are not made for TIFFANY to move. ha ha.


  6. Back in the day, my waist was a 28 and my hips were 4o, so I bought a size 30. You really have to go off your hips.

    Sorry that it's not working out, but spanx are going to be a hell of a lot more comfortable and easier to pee in! ;)

  7. Open bottoms don't keep the thighs from rubbing. Chafing is not fun. I got one of those one piece boobs out Spanx things. I also got a waist cincher and if I can find a longline bra in a superginormous I'd like a couple of those too.
