OK ladies, so this might be a weird question, but since the weight loss surgery I've noticed that I've developed some "squish (loose skin)." It's not nearly as bad as I'd thought it was going to be, which is good, but yet, it's bad enough wear it's difficult finding panties that fit...in a way that flatter me? I suppose that's the best way to put it.

Is shape wear the only answer to this problem or are there specific brands, styles, materials that can be recommended?

I hope my weird question makes sense...

I wear full size briefs and the only ones that seem to fit me correctly at Cacique brand, which I buy at Lane Bryant.

I generally wear briefs (just generic, fruit of the loom or hanes) for right now. Since I'm still in weight loss mode, I don't wanna spend on anything fancy or pretty since I'll only be able to wear it for a few months at best.

I wear tighter fitting stuff (like yoga pants, tights, tank tops) that hold my belly and pooch in, and then layer over those most of the time (skirts and shirts) to hide it a little. If it's about comfort, just keeping it from flailing around while you do daily stuff is nice. If it's about looks, Shapewear isn't always a bad thing, just make sure it's not too tight and you're not wearing it too often. People make the mistake of buying binders and things that they're hoping will help "shape" their bodies, but it just ends up damaging their muscles and making their body a little more saggy. :(

Thanks everybody! I found some relatively inexpensive briefs that work well. :)
