I’m sure all of you have seen the advertisements for Miracle Panties. A woman with lots of stomach and rolls of fat pulls up the panties and viola! Hour glass shape. Does HSN have anything like this? I went to Dilliards the other day and for the heck of it, I grabbed the Spanx and tried it on . . . make that TRIED to try it on. You should have seen me trying to get into those suckers. If I had been on Candid Camera, everybody would have gotten a good laugh. I decided I didn’t want anything that much trouble every time I went to the restroom. But I digress . . . have you seen anything like the Miracle Pants here?
, , so glad to make ya’ll laugh, and thank you for your sweet words about my hubby. He is a ‘MESS’….with a great sense of humor. I never know what he going to say. Every evening we watch the ‘WHEEL OF FORTUNE’ together (that is his favorite game). Well, right after the news it comes on. It never fails, about 10 minutes before the airing, he ALWAYS HAS TO SING THE THEME OF THE GAME SHOW…..he will sing to me, “You ready to watch and play:
T H E- W H E E L- O F- F O R T U N E” just like the voices of the audience say/sing the theme…he is ‘FUNNY and PRECIOUS’.
Did you fin what you needed?
@Pammy, I have seen the advertisement for the panties. I wear a full body Spanx. It starts right under the bra line and goes to the middle of the calf. Believe me, it’s HELL getting in them, but; I sure look ‘GOOD’ in them. I don’t have two pigs fightin under a blanket (my buttocks) jiggling around when I wear slacks or a dress. The price we pay to look good! My dear husband saw me one day putting them on to go to a wedding…he said, “DAMMIT Mama! Are you ok? Can you actually breathe in that? You better make sure you know in advance when you have to go to the ladies room….run Forest, run!” You can’t take him no where…lol…:womanlol: I told him, “I’m fine my love.” That is when he said, “The price and work you lovely creatures go thru to look good, ASTONISHING!” Thought ya’ll needed a good laugh.
RELATE RELATE RELATE!
Top too tight?
Ever grabbed and seperated the “girls” shoving one in first then the other?
Kinda like a self mammogram. Ladies with implants can’t do that!
Bottoms too tight?
At home I lay on the bed and shimmy, wiggle and tug one leg at a time until they won’t budge, usually somewhere in the upper thigh, then just lay there and breathe hoping they will stretch. I usually don’t get much farther than that between loss of circulation, raw fingers and sore hands but it beats sweating.
In a dressing I’ve learned better, if it won’t clear the thighs and I’m feeling those sweat beads I give up. Doesn’t mean I was a fast learner…there’s damage in my history… especially when I REALLY REALLY REALLY had to have it.
Florida3216, you actually walked out of the dressing room in the tight shaper? You’ve got fabulous self-esteem!
I found Miraclesuit online at ***. There are lots of different styles.

LOL! This is a funny thread. I don’t know anything about miracle panties or spanx, but I did try on my favorite Lysee cotton capris at the department store a few years back in a size I thought would fit. That’s why I say size up on them like Yummie. I was in the dressing room trying to pull them up over my hips and all heard a big “rip” noise! I said to myself “oh well, I’m almost there so I finished pulling them up”.
They looked good but were uncomfortable and too tight. Honest person that I am, walked out of the dressing room to the saleslady and asked her opinion on how they looked on me! (I wanted to see if she observed any tears in the seams).
Long story short, she did not….So I slowly wiggled out of them, immediately grabbed the next size up, purchased and left the store! I know my size in Lysee now..:womanlol:
lol, i have not seen that commercial darnit. I love hilarious infomercials, I will have to search youtube. I find with Spanx, go up a size. They work and considering what they are, are, are “comfortable”. I’m going to share a really ridiculous story about shapewear! We had traveled to another state for a friend’s milestone birthday, which was an adult costume party. and I had one of those “sexy” ones that was short, with a tutu (yes, my story has already taken a bad turn)….so I decided to get a body shaper at Kohl’s. I picked one that pretty much looks like a swimsuit. I went into the dressing room, worked pretty hard getting into it….admired how slim it made me and decided to buy it. Then I tried to take it off. That just wasn’t happening without help. Seriously, I spent like 20 minutes SWEATING in it, and could NOT get it off. and at that point, I really HAD to buy it because it was like a full aerobic workout in it. To be fair, I have mobility issues and arthritis since my 30s. But still, jeeeez! So… I just had to take the tags off and wear it out, you know like when you were a kid you’d wear your new shoes out of the store? Except this was fully an experiment in humiliation. It did make my costume look better, but I needed hubby to help get it off!! If I’d been alone I would have had to use scissors!
I have not seen the ad Pammy but you gave me a great chuckle!
I have had nice but not miracle class success w/ Carol Wior Cotton panties on the Q.
That is not something I am aware of but I would like a pair that add to that area. :smileywink:
You might try writing a letter to Santa. Sounds like something only he could find.
Are these the ones where they have ‘ordinary’ people outside a dressing room and show them before the panties and afterward? And by ordinary, I mean people with stomachs, midriffs, love handles, etc. Not models. They go in the dressing room and come out a couple of sizes smaller? I’d still think about that letter to Santa before it’s too late.
Can’t wait to hear from someone who actually has them, though. Good luck.
Admend: by ordinary, I mean real people like me, not people planted to look like customers who aren’t. Don’t mean to say you all are ordinary. We are all clearly extraordinary!
I have not heard of these Miracle Pants, but I have had my own humorous attempts at trying to get those Spanx on.
You made me giggle :smileylol:
