I have a bunch of these. They are Assets by Spanx. I like them to smooth things out.

Oh good grief! Isn't it just disgusting what we have to go thru to look "good"?!! Sometimes I just wish I could be like the beautiful Samoan women and just wear a sarong or mumu and a flower behind my ear!!

I got one for my daughter's wedding at Kohls. I don't think it was Spanx...too expensive. I tried one of those high-waisted ones....oh my! After I got done choking myself just trying to get it on and off, I decided it just wasn't for me! (Ya think?) I ended up just getting a panty-like bottom, with longer legs, like shorts. It was basically comfortable and not too hot, even though it was 90* outside. Good luck shopping for those. Be sure and have a sense of humor when trying on though!

You won't regret getting this kind! I bought them for several weddings I went to, and my own childrens's weddings. They can go all the way up under your bra and down over your thighs and boy are they nice and smooth and hold lots in. Got mine at Kohl's and JC Penney. Cheaper than Spanx (I tried those too) and do the same thing.

I got the Zamora's Bodyshaper. It works good and is comfortable. Not that hard to get into. I only bought the top cause most of my rolls (lol) are on the top.

I wear this every Sunday going to church.
I do remember my Grandma wearing a corset & “house dress” every single day. She said she felt “naked” without it.
