Anyone tried stomach taping or bandaging?

36 posts in this topic

I am getting married April 1 and have the almost perfect wedding dress except spanx are not doing the job with my loose skin. The back of the dress is fairly low so my compression garment can't be too high and the material is too thin to wear boning (it will show). I bought it thinking spanx would work but I need to either bandage this skin somehow or tape it to give a smoother appearance. I found a product on Amazon called Skinnies that can be used for stomach, arms and thighs and wondering if anyone has had luck with it or can suggest something else. Surran wrap would be just too hot for my Texas wedding. Down 150 lbs! I didn't want to have plastics before pregnancy.

You look Amazing!! I don't know very many people who could wear that dress and look that good. However if it bothers you you can use duct tape it comes in off white and have someone tape you.

I wouldnt sweat it. No one will notice your skin. Dont stress over trivial BS, youre healthier and will live a more active life, dot let some skin drag you down.

In case you can't not sweat it, can you have a heavier liner added to it to smooth out the fabric a bit?

You look amazing! I second having a heavier fabric liner under so that it can flow a bit more. But you really don't need it!

Beautiful dress. I think you look great in it!! I agree with the others who have suggested a heavier material for the skirt.

Congratulations on the weight loss :)
