Can we talk undies?



Recommended Posts

I really don't know what to do here. I wore a new pair of boyfriend jeans yesterday. On a person with no gut I guess they're supposed to sit on your hips. On me I pull them up. My stomach is a mess. I have the apron and I swear when I have a Tummy Tuck I'll go down 2 sizes. I realized yesterday when I bent, 4 inches of granny panty's showed much to my horror.

I'm not sure how to go about this. I do not have the figure at this time for a boy cut. Bikinis and thongs are totally out of the question. I don't know what size to get. I'm in a 9 but I did some evaluating last night and I'm in essence wearing a diaper.

My stomach is a real issue. Any suggestions?

It would be easiest to layer a tank top under your shirt. It will still cover anything (butt crack, granny panties, spanks) if your shirt raises up.

I like those Spanx or encore or any body shaper. ( hint. Put on from bottom. Not over your head). They help hold things in place for me a bit better for years til I saved for a TT

Good luck not dropping your drawers

and yes it happens a lot ????

I like the hipster panties at Walmart made by blissful benefits. They are the No muffin top ones!

I wear Victoria secret underwear. I don't tuck my belly into my underwear. I wear a compression tank to keep everything smooth and in place.

I sucked it up and got some bikinis. Not cute with an overhanging gut, but way preferable to them hanging out of my pants. I also found I have no hips, so I bit the bullet and started buying belts. Got a black one, a brown one, and a really cute one woven in Peru. I never wore belts when I had a muffin top, but now I see why skinny people wear them! :)

I just found some great Shapewear called Yummie. They have great tank tops that give you firm but comfortable support all the way past your hips. They are long enough to cover your bum and lower belly. The compression feels great and helps with a squishy, jiggly belly. The bonus is a smoother silouhette. I bought them in several colors so I never have to be without them. HTHs!

Commando! Haha, but past that, the cami trick was always helpful to me. I didn't tuck it in, but just wore it as a longer shirt over my jeans and then a cute matching top on top of it, but in hindsight, tucking it in also works.

As a note, you will def go down sizes after an abdominoplasty. I started plastics in a 10 and I'm now in a 2-4 largely as a result of skin removal over 8 months.

I wear boy shorts or hipsters by Lane Bryant. Can't wait to get out of that store!

      I joined BariatricPal in 2008 & I FINALLY made the descision to have WLS!! I'm so excited & not sure what I need to do to get the ball rolling, but I made an appointment with my PCP for 7/19. It's a start I guess.

        I've been dreaming about it for 30 years or so. It's time to make it happen!

      I joined yesterday when I was struggling with this preop diet... 
      It typically comes and goes, the hard times and easier times. I'm on day 6 of 14  shakes, water, sf Popsicles and jello. And I might actually be losing my mind. But, oh dear lord has the fear set in. Not about the surgery itself, but life afterwards. If I feel this crappy on the preop diet, am I going to feel like this forever after? 
      I know most of the answers are no, not forever. It might be worse after for a while, then get better. I know it's a more of a mental challenge than physical after the first couple weeks of healing. I get all of that. But I'm starting to feel scared about losing myself afterwards. 
      It might be my hormones or desire to chew something salty talking.. It may go away soon or tomorrow.. I can hope, anyway. But right now.. The fear is real. 
       
      And this liquid diet can bite me.

        Fear is normal, but if it makes you feel any better, I'm 4.5 months post-op and the pre-op diet was by far the hardest part of the whole process. There will be challenges and a lot of new things to learn, but I can honestly say at this point I feel so much more "back to normal" and was even able to go on a week-long vacation with my kids without stressing over it. It's so worthwhile.

        @NickelChip This actually does make me feel better! Thank you so much! After the onslaught of Covid, we've all had to deal with a "new normal", so I know it's possible. It's just the fear and frustration in this moment that makes me question if I can find another "new normal" afterwards. The thought of just a few more months seems daunting some times, but I really do appreciate input and real experience. I'll use that to get me through for a few more hours! LOL. Thank you so much! And I'm glad everything is going so well for you! ❤️
