  • a girdle will not make your stomach go back. All it does is hold you in..snugly if it's a heavy duty girdle. It will not help you regain muscle control.

  • Ive never worn one, don't even know what they look like. all it will do as far as i know is make you "look" like you're skinnier. who is telling you to wear one? it is up to you. i thought girdles went out in the 60s.
