  • MY NEW BEST FRIEND!!! I LOVE THEM!! I never wore a body shaper until recently and WOW!! I lost some weight but just wasn't looking good in the "next size down" jeans - I was just in between. So I decided to try one and FELL IN LOVE!! I got mine at Kohl's. I didn't buy the Spanx brand but I bought a longer style so I can hide the "muffin top" and I am able to pull it all the way up to where my bra kind of hold it in place. They did a "try it before you buy it" segment on our local news and they suggested buying a top because they had the same problems. When they paired the top with the bottoms and made sure the "shirt" part was over the band of the "bottoms" it didn't roll as much. I have also seen a full-body shaper - top and bottom in one.

  • Yes, mine do the same thing. It is very annoying. Victoria secerets for just a few dollars sell, ooohh I cant think of the name of it, but if you ask the clerk there they will know exactly what you are talking about. They are strips that have sticky adhesive on both sides, almost like double sided tape but not hash to your skin. I put that on across the inside of the back. Leaving the side that will stick to you with the tape on it until I get it on. Then once it is on, i remove the paper and place the adhesive stips things to my skin. It works like a charm and no more folding in the back.
