If Spanx-type tummy control is what you're looking for, try FullBeauty.com under Shapewear. They have shapewear briefs that go all the way up to 8X. I have a 5X or 6X that fit me just fine at almost 400 pounds.

If you're looking for regular cotton underwear to accommodate your belly, I like Catherine's high-waisted briefs (the ones that come in a pack of 3). They have enough material to cover your stomach but the leg holes are cut low enough that they shouldn't sag under the weight of your stomach. I buy mine one size too large (they go up to underwear size 16, which I think is the equivalent of a 6X in pants), tuck the excess fabric under my "apron" and it keeps me from chafing without being too bulky. They're a bit on the pricey side, but watch for a buy 2, get 1 free sale.

Yeah I was once in 13-14s myself, now at my weight it's a 10 maybe an 11 in the cheapies. Never thought I would be able to say THAT! Be so obese so long I feared I would die THAT Way, thank you God, thank you Surgeon, and most of all thank you strong woman spirit that has kept me following along with my Care Plan! Like the late Mary Tyler Moore theme song " I'm going to make it after all!"

This may have started the thread many many moons ago but it still says a lot. I just broke into the 100s yesterday, and I'm sure I will miss Just My Size a lot in undies, not the clithes, just the undies. But I do have a Catherine's in Columbus, they currently call it C-BUS and I will make do through it all because I even with photo documentation will find it difficult to get Medicare or Medicaid to pay for plastics. But you know the weight loss, it still is all good , and I am certain GOD won't demand I go commando at the end! Have a shining sparkling day EVERYONE!

      New found appreciation for you all!
      So Im back in the US to take care of my aging father and it seems like more than ever that being bigger is the norm everywhere here. I cant say that Ive been the best, healthiest me at the moment, but I think you all Americans are doing GREAT to even be working towards the goal of getting healthier in face of all this temptation (even if you are a "slow loser"). So give all yourselves a pat on the back!

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

        Hello congratulations on your new journey I am 5 days post op and still trying to get the hang of things. I’m supposed to return back to work in a few days but still sore as well. Do you have any advice for me being 5 days post opt?

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.
