Personal Shopper: Plus-sized shapewear for Amanda

Amanda W. wrote, "I'm a larger girl and I'm looking for a good "fat sucker" I'd like a body suit that will suck me in at all the right places. Mainly something to help control my tummy and my back. I'm a 42DD and currently have a waist of 53". Being hypothyroid sucks. I have a wedding coming up in October and I have a very pretty dress that I'd like to wear but can't without a body sucker! Thank you!"

Amanda, Janetor here: As a fellow plus-sized glamazon, I fully understand the importance of shapewear under dresses and clingy clothes. Thank goodness, shapewear has come a long way from the heavy-duty girdles our grandmothers wear, and Spanx now makes plus-sized shapewear. I wasn't sure what kind of neckline your dress has, so I rounded up a variety for you. (PS - Most of these are also available in either black or nude hues.) Enjoy!!

1 - Spanx Slimplicity V-Neck Camisole ($50)

2 - Spanx Slimplicity Lingerie Strap Camisole ($50)

3 - Nude Tummy Control Cami ($22)

4 - Body Wrap Bodysuit with Underwire ($78)

5 - Spanx Hide & Sleek Slip-Suit ($88)

6 - Lytess Corrective Slimming Shapewear Belt ($50)

7 - Serenada 8142 Bodybriefer ($32-34)

8 - Spanx Slimplicity Open Bust Camisole ($48)

Hi Amanda, I'm a plus size girl, too, and if you try Spanx (or if anyone has that is about our size) I would love to know if they live up to the hype!

I have used Spanx and they are amazingly good -- way better than I expected -- but I also wanted to mention that Target sells a brand of Spanx type products called ASSETS that are also very good, and noticeably less expensive.
