Just curious, does anyone here ever wear a girdle? Do women still wear them?
Although I have become pretty good at camouflaging my belly I have a longing to wear some cute tops that right now I can't even consider. I have a roll that starts at my hips and goes to the front. So...I was thinking that a girdle might be the answer? If anyone does wear one, do you wear the brief style? Or one that ends at mid-thigh? Is it comfortable? Does it really help smooth out any bulges?
Thanks in advance!

I wore them when I'd lost enough to where one would make a difference, but still had a few more pounds to shed. I got the one you just wrap around your waist with all the hooks down the front, because I didn't want to fight with getting a tight fitting girdle off for every bathroom trip.
I bought a cute velvet dress in the sales, and it shows my bottom tummy roll something awful, so I invested in a panty girdle, and it does wonders! I wouldn't wear one every day, but for the odd occasion they are a life saver.
I call mine tightie whities! I NEVER refer to them as girdles! I wear the kind that's biker shorts length with a waist cincher and all the hooks up the front...I hate them. They are a necessary evil however, because of my spare tire and saddle bags. If I want to look half way decent in my dress slacks at work, I have to wear them and they do make a difference. Some days I just hate having to wriggle in and out of them, though.
I cut control top panty hose off at the knees for a slimmer, smoother look under slacks or skirts in the summer with bare feet in sandles. I learned that from kathy Lee Gifford when she was still with Regis.
Eat good food. Move yourself. Lift something.
You'll be surprised how much you don't miss grain.
