I am thinking of buying one of those slimming camis from spanx but they are very expensive. Has anyone on here bought one, or something like it? I am trying to eliminate the bra lines that show in the back, you know, too much back fat I guess. Any advice would be appreciated!

  • I love my spanx. They are expensive but they are so worth it. smooth control without cutting off circulation. I tried cheaper knockoffs. Basically. it was a waste of time and money. They help in someways but make it look worse in others. Some have so MUCh control you can hardly breathe. Go Spanx.

  • I haven't, personally, but I have seen similar question where women answered that they are awesome.
    I'm interested in hearing more opinions, because if they are as great as everyone makes them out to be, I'm sooo getting one!

  • I just recently bought Assests. It's from the same maker, but cheaper.
    They're alright, they just smooth everything out. Maybe get rid of like 2 inches.

    Don't expect anything dramatic though lol.

  • I dont think they were that $$. Target carries them. If you go to Macy's they will cost more. I think mine are called assest.

  • I bought them. Im about 5'6 and 130 lbs. Im not overweight, and I dont have a baby belly really anymore, I do have small love handles. I wore spanx under my skin tight engagement party dress and it smoothed out the love handles. It fixes small problems and would probably work for your needs.
