  • Try Spanx. Even thin women use them to minimize problem areas.

  • I have tried a few.. one from Victoria secret which was actually more like those calf length leggings, and it worked fine.. I dont really know how many "inches" I lost, I wore it under a dress after having my son. The other one I have tried is from Target and was like a pair of shorts that had a high waist.. it worked well for my tummy after having my son too.

    Even tiny women use body shapers... I know some models and actresses use spanx... and Dr. Rey shape wear...they are the best.. but they are expensive. Macy's has a large selection as well, I'd check them out.. but the Target brand ones are fine, I thought they worked OK. LOL Oprah says she wears them every day... I dont think I would ever do that but.. hey, we all need help sometimes.

  • Yep, I tried the one on the infomercial. I can't remember the name right now. I love it though. It helps smooth out everything.

  • I have used "a body condom" as I call it. It is a mid-thigh slimmer. Can't remember the name, but it comes to the bottom of your chest. It rolls down when you move a lot.
