    I have wedding in a couple weeks and the dress I have fits but I'd feel better with my spanx. Not that I need to hide the pregnancy or anything but I feel I am a little big for my stage. They don't cut into the bump just compress it slightly - I mean the uterus it juts barely above the pubic bone so the spanx aren't squishing the baby...just my guts lol right?

    we do have spanx in the uk - and that is what they are called!!

    i wore some to a wedding when i was about 9 weeks and everything was fine - your baby is still tucked away so you should be ok xx

    Should be fine. They just hold you in a little better. It's not like a corset.

    I think they're fine - I've seen journal entries where people have worn them, just not every day.

    Spanx is a brand name - but they are available in the uk. There are also many similar (cheaper - lol) products out there.
    I have worn mine, but I'm only 10 weeks. I can't see they would do any harm, because you don't feel squashed or uncomfortable. I think they smooth more than anything.
