I'm Julie a 42 year old mom of 2 girls 19 and 17 I was a stay at home mom until 6 yrs ago. I started working in a law firm and had to dress in a skirt dress or suit everyday. My dilemma was that I was 30 lbs heavier than I was before my girls were born. Now a size 18 in most outfits I need curve control . I went to a local lingerie shop and purchased 3 longleg briefs 2 white and a black one.They made such a difference my skirts and dresses fit so much better and I felt much better. Now I wear a longleg girdle everyday wouldnt feel right without one on.
