Default Underwear to make tummy flat

I tried girdles but they didn't seat well with me. When I ate, the food would stay on my chest the whole day, sometimes I was close to puking.

So, please girls, tell me if there exists a mechanism to keep the fleshy flower flat.


I'm losing 5.5 lbs 12 times. I'm currently left with 8 times!!!

I've tried spanx before, when I was wearing a really fitted dress. However, it's nowhere near comfortable for me so I stick to highwaisted panties when I wear dresses and skirts and ones that sit below my belly button when I'm wearing pants.
My only requirements for the lower half is for it to be comfortable. I tend to go for cotton and avoid anything that does any pressure on my belly. I also try to buy clothes that I'm comfortable wearing. What I mean by that is that if it's fitted and I'm concerned about the rolls, I won't buy it.
My rule of thumb is: tight upper half = loose lower half and loose lower half = tight upper half.

Hope this helps!

I find that underwear made specifically as tummy control actually has the opposite effect on me. It digs into my waist and accentuates the bulging belly. I have to wear undies whose band sits immediately below the belly button. But everyone's belly button is a little different but try it. I have good luck with GAP undies and at Kohls briefs.

"Binging is a descent into a world where every restriction... is cut loose. At its core is a feeling of deprivation.. a feeling you can never get enough. Binges do not signify a lack of willpower or inability to care for yourself. On the contrary, binges are a urgent attempt to care for yourself when you feel uncared for. They are the voice of survival. Binges are the mark of the self that says, 'I am tired of feeling deprived, of being told I am wrong, that I am bad." - Geneen Roth

I like Spanx (try the cheap knock offs at Walmart) and the key is to go up a size! I normally wear a large in regular clothes so I chose an XL. It's still tight enough to slim and smooth, and since it's a size up it doesn't feel like it's strangling me. LOL I had a "battle" with myself over the size thing but I'm so pleased with how I look I quickly got over it BTW the kind I like is the one with the legs down to the knees up to the waist with straps but no built in bra....I HATE built in bras!

I like the open bust long leg styles, that have shoulder straps but you wear your own bra.

I've been thinking of getting something like spanx to smooth over the bumps I'm getting via looser skin in the tummy....but how the heck do you go to the bathroom? I just envision having to take EVERYTHING off or wrestling with myself in the stall.

These are great. Lightweight, comfortable and easy to use the restroom while wearing them:
