Don't Knock The GirdleI bought a new dress for a party, very slim and sexy but when I modeled it for my mother she insisted I wear a girdle under it. She said I kind of stuck out in certain places even though I had on control top pantyhose. I was 16 and I didn't own a girdle but she had quite a few and wore them regularly. We were about the same size and after trying on a several we settled on an open-bottom, high waist (I learned on EP that it would be an OBHW) but I needed stockings to hold it down and it was Mom to the rescue again. When I was finally dressed and ready to go I have to say I did look good, and realized that it felt good too.
My boyfriend was happy with it too. It made things easier than with pantyhose.
Today I own several girdles and do wear them occasionally when I feel I'm "sticking out in certain places".
